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

Black Screen I have taken really good care of my camera and it has never been dropped. I went on a Cruise a few months ago and one day into the cruise the screen wouldn't show anything. It was just a black screen. When I took pictures they turned out black too. I am still able to navigate the menus and see pictures on my SD card. Even after returning to Colorado, a dry climate, the screen is always black and taking black pictures. Is there something I can do to fix this problem or should I just

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it to Auto or camera mode, the screen goes black and only shows the little icons... Weirdly enough, it still takes the picture but the really annoying thing is it doesn't show up on the screen what you're taking a photo of so it makes it really hard for the person taking the actually photo... can

I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.

The pictures captured by the camera do not display the same vertical stripes, which seems to indicate it is a problem that only affects the focusing screen. These stripes take up about 2/3 of the right side of the viewing screen. Do you know what might be affecting the problem? In addition the camera has never been dropped or mishandled in any way.

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?) The camera now turns off to a black screen, If I push the botton to see ast pictures, the screen works again and lets me see through them. But If I go back to "take picture mode", the image they give me is all blurry and if I try to use the zoom, the camera turns off.
