Black speck on photos on Canon SD1000

I first thought it might be something on the lens but there was nothing.\015\012What could be the problem?\015\012Here's a sample picture with the black speck.\015\012http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb310/Variodical/UT9931.jpg\015

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

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. Do you have any idea what is wrong with the camera or where we can take it to have it looked at or fixed? Brian Anderson

Black LCD Canon A60 Cute camera, many nice features. Installed a Lexar 256mb CF. Worked well until just past the warranty period. Now nada, just a black screen, or scrambled LCD. If you squeeze the shutter, wysiwyg--a black photo. Contacted Canon and essentially they offered me an "upgrade" to their A70 for $150 plus $10 for shipping. And a 3 month warranty. Any advice or do I have an expensive paperweight?

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal.

Indoor photos are overexposed. Flash pictures seem OK. The picture on the display is OK. I compared some macro photos taken a few weeks ago with macro photos now. The good photo

I recently bought a Canon A590. I've taken perhaps 20 photos on half a dozen occasions and I'm having trouble getting the photos onto my computer (only 2 years old, up to date). I can usually only retrieve about 30% of the photos completely, another 50% "half" the photo with the other portions white, gray or black, then 30% I can't access at all. I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem; at this point I'm ready to return the camera and be done withit!

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...
