After two months of great use the camera (Canon PowerShot A70)LCD screen DISPLAYS icons for function but no image, just black. All other camera functions appear to work but photos downloaded are completely black (ie there is a file downloaded the typical size for a photo but just a black image).

Is this a hard fault orcan there besome other reason for this?

I have the same problem. Every so often the camera display stops working. The icons are there, and the camera "works", but takes a picture of "black"....as if the lens didn't see anything.

It is a brand new camera, i have had it for 2 months or so. Anyone have ANY idea what this is all about?

It seems that the lens shutter is stuck and doesn't open. I had this twice on my A75. Pressing the display button will fix the problem.

Thanks for the reply. The camera is my daughter's who is in France. It is currently being shipped back to me to take to Canon for warranty action but I will check the press display action you have suggested.

Question: Was this a one time occurrence or has it happened several times with the same solution working

Once again thanks

Hi, not sure if this is related but I experienced the same thing with my year old A70 I bought brand new. After taking some 60 shots, I turn it on the following day and discover that I can't take any pics, although I can still view the previous days pics. Sent it to the service center and they had to replace the CCD.
