Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera ?

Unable to take pics ?

\015 Hi there. I have not used my camera for about 6 months and on switching it on it came up battery level low recharge. So I did and when I switched it on I found that one was no longer able to take pics as they would come out black. Even viewing through the LCD of what you are about to take a pic of was no longer there except a blank screen. Strange cos when I viewed recently taken pics on the memory card one is able to see the pics on the screen ?\015
