When I turn the camera on and look into the view finder the sceen is wavy and does not show the images I want to record. The tape is VHS and appears to be moving but is not recording any images.

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.

I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Hi I have a minolta dimage A1, which has been working fine, but when I know turn it on, the screen, same through the view finder, just flickers, with no image shown, then white bars flicker on and off on the screen.

No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?

Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom
