Apparently the problem is well documented. I am not the first person to have the dreaded “black screen” problem by any stretch of the imagination.
And again someone else notes the same problem. Several someones, if you read the comments.
I am a tad peeved by this. When I called Canon, the friendly man on the telephone said “Hmmmm, sounds like a sensor problem.” Clearly, it is no sensor problem. Clearly, Canon knows this. I am so disappointed in their lack of response to a well documented problem. Hopefully, the repair will fix it for good, but I have lost faith in my camera! Which, BTW, I miss a lot.
And I’m not the only one who misses it! All of your posts and emails have been really great, serving to remind me daily that I have no camera. Just kidding! You have all been wonderful and I love the fact you all enjoy TWandAW so much. And that you complain. The most complainy of all the McComplainersons has definitely been Jane. Jane misses The Flamboyance and doesn’t hesitate to tell me how much, and often.
So there’s not much I can do … except for this. Jane, this is for you!
