Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!

Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Within the last few days, suddenly when I take a picture a picture there is a little red eye that is flashing on the left hand of the screen and the little green light at the top is flashing also and there is hesitation of about 15 seconds before a picture is taken and then the picture will have a redish tint to it when it processes. This just started and I have changed batteries out and powered the camera on and off several times and I have checked all of the settings, and still cannot figure

It sounds to me that the timer is on. That would certainly explain the blinking lights and the 15 second delay. There should be a button with what looks like a small clock on it to turn this feature on and off. You should also be able to find it i ... Digital Cameras

Blankness When I switch it on, my screen goes grey-white for a few seconds. Then, It shows my last picture taken but it's very fuzzy and faded. Then the picture changes into complete greyness. THEN, it'll jump from the grey-whitness, to that faded picture. Damn. Would there be any why I could just replace a part in it? Like the hard drive or something? Definitely sounds like something is really fucked in my cam. Sniff. I loved it and hate having to buy another new one as I'm accustomed to using

Lcd problems When I turn the camera on, the screen is very dark. I have tried all the settings on the camera to make it brighter but that hasn't worked. I am still able to take pictures and when I transfer them to the computer, they come out normal. I noticed earlier that the screen went brighter for a second and then turned dark again. I think there may be a problem with connection.
