I got my Canon a590 this past christmas; since then, every so often, it will not show any image on the screen. All I can see is the menu options. Every time I want to take a picture, all I get is absolute black. However, I can view pictures on a memory card with no problem on the main screen. The last 3-4 times this happened, the problem usually went away within a few days. I've tried replacing the batteries, but to no avail. Is my lens bad, or is it due to a more intricate problem?

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen.

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]
