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, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). \012
\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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.\012
\012By the way, if you confirm that it is a stuck shutter from the article, recommend the pencil tapping method of step 5a for your particular problem (seems like you may have shutter stuck "open").\012

Lens inoperative? When camera is turned on, there is no image on the screen, just flashing horizontal lines.

Do you have a easy to understand diagram that simply describes the operation of the back side of the camera as to what all of the button choice mean, i.e. , bs, menu , etc. Also in one area on the back side, there is a square with a button in the middle and four lines pointing in different directions just as you would view north, south, east and west.

I have a Canon PowerShot A550. I was resetting some of my features and accidentally pushed format. As you know, that automatically erased all my pictures.

It would be a shame if, because of human error, I lost all of my pictures. Please advise. Thank you, Dottie
