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.

A few months ago my camera started having problems. no matter how many times i change the batteries, the camera still will not turn on and when it does it flashes a quick image and then the screen goes black and it dies without taking in the lens!!! i am very VERY careful with it and have never dropped it, so i do not understand why it is not working! the Camera is only a year old and i have used it quite a few times and it has never had a problem until now.

I figured it was the battery, so i charged it and now only comes up with a white screen and the lens does not open when power up the camera. No noises either. So we put the battery back in the charger and it is red, signaling that the battery needs charging. Is this a battery problem or a camera problem

Black Screen Bought wife L18 last Xmas. Used once since. Turn it on and lens comes out, but screen is nearly completely black. Menu items barely readable if not viewed under bright light. "Reset ALL" at Setup does nothing. Replaced batteries 3 times, and have taken batteries out of camera for several weeks. No change. Cannot see on-screen image even in bright sunllight.

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?
