Please see similar problem titled "black screen". Welsbar posted a possible solution as a clarification request. It involves switching your picture mode to TV and changing the shutter speed to 15 seconds, depressing the shutter button for 7 seconds, then opening battery enclosure. Repeat as necessary - I did this twice before I started to see anything on the screen. Twice more before photos start to look okay. Don't know yet if this is a lasting solution, but at least now I can start using the camera again and find out!

According to Welsbar, the problem is an internal part (iris?) that gets stuck when camera hasn't been used frequently.
Great for now. Sounds pessimistic? Thanks for the solution. Hope it keeps on working. I shall try not to leave it unused for long.

''incompatible jpg'' I took the Kingston memory card out of my CanonA720IS digital and moved my pictures to IPhoto on my Mac so that I could edit them. When I finished editing, I used the same Promaster card reader/writer to return the pics to the memory card, since hooking up my camera to my tv is the only way I can show large pics to my entire family at once. But when I checked them in the camera, about 20% showed only a thumbnail with the message ''incompatible jpg,'' or had just a question m
