Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera ?

My camera's screen works, but when I try to take a photo the screen remains black. I thought maybe it was just the display function, but I checked the resultant photos and they're just black rectangles. Any suggestions?

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?


Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

My EX Z1000 Casio digital camera has functioned perfectly till suddenly, without provocation, the screen refused to light up. Since then, all else seems normal, but no photo results from my use of the camera, only a black screen where the photo should be. I've already tried removing the battery for 30 seconds, but it makes no difference. Can you give me some suggestions about what to do?

Error Message When I take a photo with Nikon D60 it's as though the shutter gets stuck and it gives an error message on the screen (Error! Press shutter release button again.)

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black. We tried the DISP button and that does not work in this case. Everything else seems to be ok. We can see the other photos we have taken.
