Canon a630 lcd is black - Canon Digital Cameras
Since it has a flip-out lcd screen, I would say that somehow the connecting wires have worn out. Especially if you've had the camera for a while. If it's worth the trouble, you could try getting it repaired. I'm not sure what the cost on that would be. Otherwise, it might be time to upgrade to a newer camera. Canon has some really nice ones out there right now.

Flashless photograghy I bought a this camera about a month ago. I would like to know what settings I need to put it on so I can take good pictures of a stage performence without having to use my flash.
