Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
Only had my camera for one month (birthday gift). Just one day stopped taking pictures...all pictures come out black like the shutter is closed but shutter on lens is open. LCD monitor works because I can see the menu on the screen. I did not drop or mishandle the camera. It's still under warranty but I just want to be sure I've done all that I could to try to fix the problem before sending back for repairs.
I HATE AC BUSES
i live in india and it is very very humid here in summers. we were on tour. entered an AC bus for the tour. opened my POWERSHOT A610 after say 5 hrs. in this time we made multiple entry and exits with the cam from the bus. when it came to opening my cam it showed the same problem u are describing. everything is OK but shooting just blank pics. i was out of warranty and repaired it at a local camera workshop who are in the prof of repairing for decades. they told that the multiple entry and exit from the bus caused the moisture to condense and form a glue with the dirt and dust deposited around the ccd cover. as they told the sensor is covered mechanically. it opens only when u are about to shoot... the button half-pressed. they opened it up under suitable conditions, unclogged it and since then it's an OK cam now.
I HATE AC BUSES NOW!!!!
it cost me 1400 bucks in Indian rupees. that would be about 30 $ if the rate is rs 47/$. but here it is very costly when u have the income as about 300 $ on average per month!!!
God bless us all....

If it is the same problem as mine you will need to contact Cannon to have the defective part replaced.

When you say the shutter is open, you can see the purple glass lens from the front?
