When Mode switch is set to take pictures or clips, the camera shuts down in less than a second after I turn it on. If the Mode switch is in the far-left position (review pictures already taken), it stays on and I can see all the pics in the camera, but as soon as I switch to picture-taking mode the camera shuts down.

I have a Canon Powershot SD1000 and when I turn it on, the screen to take a picture says it's on auto, but it's black and you can't see anything through it. If I switch to video mode or picture review mode, the screen can be seen through. I think that I accidentally put it on the wrong setting, but I don't know how to fix it.

I have just got back from holiday where I took 325pics. Earlier today I was able to see them on screen but had not yet downloaded as I was going to take to a store to print out tomorrow.

I don't want to press yes and delete the pics but if I press no the only other option it takes me back to is to power off. At this time i can't take any photos either.

When I put the camera on I can see the pics I have stored on the camera although I have to scroll through a black screen for 3 or 4 clicks first. When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing.
