Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera ?

LCD monitor is black

\015 My camera is Power Shot S2IS. If I can get it to work at all ,I have to turn it off and then on. Also the 12X zoom does not work. I am using new batteries. The camera has never been dropped or gotten wet. Is my camera a wreck?\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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.

My Fuji FinePix S5000 has given me years of excelent service. While on break I stored the camera for 2-3 months. When I pulled it out I noticed I had inadvertantly stored it in the "playback" mode. It was of course in 'power save off' mode but when I turned it back on, the viewfinder and LCD monitor are black and it takes black pictures like as though the lense cover was on. Everything else is normal, I am able to view previous pictures saved on the xD card and it shows promptings on the monitor
