Canon a620. no image on display and pictures turn out black


Answers :

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). \012To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. \012

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped.

Kodak M763. Display works all right if I review photos already taken, but there is usually no display when I try to take a picture. It's black. It may be that, if the battery is fully charged, I may see a display in a sepia tone or a bluish overcast. The information on the screen is bright, it's the viewfinder image that can't be seen. It would have helped me if I could turn it on while its charging, but I can't. That would have solved te question of a low-voltage electrical input. If a subject
