Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera ?

Black out on my LED screen


\015 Frequently when I turn on my camera to take a picture, on the LED screen I get two black out things on the screen. One diagonally at the top and one diagonally at the bottom. I can see my picture subject inbetween. Of course, when I take the picture, these black out thing (don't know what else to call them) show up on the picture. Once in a while it just goes away with me fiddling around with turning it on and off. But this time, it won't. Please email me asap as I'm going out of town and want to take pictures......help me......\015\012Thank you!\015\012Sue Jones\015

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.


The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras
