Hi

If you can't take new pictures (they are totally black) but you can see old pictures, then either the lens aperture is stuck closed or your CCD is bad. Either means that you need to replace the lens of the camera.

You can look online for a defective camera and make one good one out of the two, but it's difficult to find one with a good lens!

Don't bother going to a store or 'service center' though you can if you would like to verify what I'm about to say. They won't know anything about camera repair, and will want to charge you $150 or more for the repair if they say they will do it. If they do take on the repair, all they will do is send it to Canon which you can do yourself for about $150.

There are AFFORDABLE digital camera repair businesses online, I know, because I own one! We can replace your lens for about $75.

Good luck with your repair,

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

I have a Cannon PowerShot SD750. The LCD suddenly went blank - dark all through, last month Dec.,08. I tried everything - reset, disp button, menu, power down, etc. to no avail.

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.
