Both my digital cameras will take pictures for awhile, then go black for awhile, then take pics again for awhile. One will beep at me, one makes a clicking noise, when they go black. Happens with either battery or adapter power. Why?
I think this is due to some small loose connection in the camera. that is what making the screen black. and more over the clicking noise may be due to some mechanical breakage which can be repaired only at service ... Digital Cameras
Camera will turn on. It will show stored pics, but the screen is black when trying to take pic (tho it has info on it- like how many pics I have left on memory card). If I take a pic, then it's all black. Sometimes it makes funny noises and often it will say "camera has detected an error and is shutting down. Please restart." And then the number 32.

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way.

The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

Hi. When I power up my Canon A75 to take a picture, the screen is purple, not black. Is this also a sensor problem? Also when the camera is turned on or off, the lens retraction or extension mechanism makes an odd noise in addition to the normal sound. As far as I know, this camera has not been dropped. Thanks for your help.
The purple screen is also an indication of sensor failure, However, the odd noise could any of a number of things from sand/gunk in the gear mechanism, a damaged tooth on a gear, etc... But still, recommend that you contact Canon to arrange the adv ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Unusable When I turn the camera on, it makes warning type noises that I've never heard it do before, and then displays the code E18 on a black screen in the lower left hand corner.
The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. ... Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing
