Solved the shutter is open but viewing screen is black

December 9, 2013 at 09:21:19
Specs: Windows XP
when I open my Canon Powershot 750, the shutter opens, but the viewing screen remains black. I have to look into the small viewing square on top left corner to be able to take a pic.
Can I fix this in the menu or is it a hardware problem?

✔ Best Answer
I assume you mean the lens protector is open, the shutter is actually internal and you can't see it. How old is the camera, is it still under warranty? There might be a reset option, have a look in the manual and if there is one, give it a try. If that doesn't work, most likely time to take it to a repair shop.

It's quite old already - I'll try and reset. Thx!!
Dec 11 - I did reset my camera and all is good again. - still curious as to which setting had changed to cause this problem.
Anyway, thx again :))
