Don't fret, there's nothing wrong. You just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns your screen on and off to save batteries. Press it once more to turn it back on.

Hi i have a Canon Powershot A610. I have a loose wire, I think in the screen or the body of the camera, not sure what the problem is. Everytime I take a picture you cant see what you are taking a picture of because the screen is all black. So, when you go and look at what you have taken under the play button it shows a blank/black screen. I don't know what to do, please help me!

Black screen I just took pictures yesterday, went to take a picture today, and the screen is black, but the settings still show up around the edge of the LCD screen. I took a picture "just for fun", but it still showed up black (I thought that when the picture took, it would show up in the screen -- nope !!) HELP, I've only had this camera for about 6 months, and I love it (when it works). It was given to me for Christmas, so of course I don't have any of the receipts. Hope you can help me --

When I put the camera on I can see the pics I have stored on the camera although I have to scroll through a black screen for 3 or 4 clicks first. When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing. I reluctantly recharged the batteries even though I didn't have the battery low warning and it hasn't helped. Can you help please? I also did a reset to default by holding the menu button.
