My Olympus FE-290 hit the floor I can't get an image when I turn it on. I was able to put the pictures that were on the card onto the computer. When I came to the spot that I dropped it the next pictures(?) were just a black square on the computer. About 4 or 5 of them that I had tried to take a picture after it dropped. I can't get the last picture taken either. Jenny

I recently tried to take some pictures with my powershot a300 and was only getting black pictures. I have used it for several pictures about 3 months before that and the camera has been stored in a drwer between times. I checked to make sure the shutter was open. The display is black when taking pictures and when I try to review the just taken pics, they are all black too.

Canon s21s I bought my camera in March 2006 and have not had a problem until 2 weeks ago. Both the viewfinder and LCD screen are black when trying to take a picture but the icons remain on the screen. The lens continues to pop out so obviously something in the lens shutter is not opening up. But previously taken photos are visible with the playback mode. Has canon offered any help yet?

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black.

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]
