Canon Digital IXUS 70, Camera Blank

\015 Dear all,Just this morning I took many pictures from my Canon IXUS 70, it was fine until suddenly blank images appears when I tried to shoot objects. It was definitely not because I pressed "DISP" button, because it's different. If you press "DISP" button, you will see that the LCD is completely off. In my case, it is not off, I still can see and choose the shooting mode, but the objects I wanted to capture did not appear. If I just try to shoot it, it was successful, a flash light would be fired. But when tried to display it, actually it was only the blank images. It seems that the shutter did not open.I don't think I have a problem on my LCD, since I still can see existing images I captured before this problem occurs.Can anyone give me ideas of what is going on?Any suggestion?Regards.Yoelie\015

My Canon IS850 wouldn't auto-focus. The yellow light would blink (like if you're too close to something). I snapped the pictures anyway. They were garbage. Then after a day and swapping memory cards, the camera started auto-focussing properly. It made no sense.

\015\012Called Canon on my return, they fixed the camera under warranty by "replacing the optical unit". Sounds like CAnon is having problems
This really sounds like a potential CCD failure. To confirm, take a picture while the screen is black, then download to your computer to see if the picture is also black.

\015\012If so, it is difficult for the average person to replace a CCD, and should only be done by an authorized Canon repair rep. If still under warranty, Canon will fix this for you for free. If not, recommend calling Canon anyways and complaining (this should not happen in such a recent model camera). If you complain, and possibly ask to speak to a supervisor, you just might get lucky.

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?

A week ago I purchased a Canon Ixus 970 digital camera. When using in dark conditions yesterday, I noticed two bright blue dots on the LCD screen. I've switched the camara off and on again and have taken the battery out and replaced it again, but they are still there in exactly the same place. Is this normal for a digital camera? I've had a couple of cheapo's before but have never had this problem. So it seems a bit strange that I have these irritiating dots on a £200 camera. Shoul
