Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera ?

Lens blocked? Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS, recently water damaged

\015 I dropped my camera in water about a month ago. It's mostly working fine now, except the screen is black in shooting mode. It's the kind of image you'd get if you completely covered the lens - grainy, not solid. If I take a picture, it just takes a picture of the blackness. Pressing Display doesn't solve this. Help?\015

Answers :

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

\015\012To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
