Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera ?

LCD screen stays dark

\015 My camera powers up and the screen shows which mode its in, it displays the menu, and it will playback the memory card...but it wont do anything else. I cant see the image that i am tryin to take a pic of. I used the peephole to snap some pics but the the saved pic on the memory card was just of a plain black screen. Is this a lcd problem or is there something wrong with my shutter or something entirely different?\015

I have the same problem and very frustrating! The camera turns on by won't show anything (totally black) in the camera mode. The menu still works. If I take a picture the display is black and shows black for it in the display mode model as well. Tried everything that I can think of but nothing helped. (Taking out the batteries and reinstalling, switching the mode from display to camera and back, stepping through each mode option, stepping through each menu options). The last option worked once but won't work later on. From this forum this seems to be a common problem with this camera. Guess won't buy another camera from Canon any more. I bought a camera (non-digitals SLR) from Canon before and was very happy with it for over 20 years. Thought Canon had the right thing in camera. This problem made me think twice when I buy another camera in the future. Perhap Canon is not as good as I thought. By not fixing the known problem, they are ruining their reputation.
Canon should replace all the users of a610 with some sort of replacement i to have the same problem and nobody can really fix it it just costs and costs to look at it can canon comment before i take this to the latest technology editorials about failures to communicate on this issue
