    Hello, my Canon PowerShot A2300 has a black screen. I've seen some solutions for other Canon models online but nothing specifically for the A2300. I'm assuming its a stuck shutter. Not the lense. I would appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

    Can you get any menus to appear on the screen or is it black 100% of the time? If it's the latter the problem is with your LCD screen (not the shutter or the lens).

    Thanks for your quick response.The screen shows menus but when entering video or camera mode the screen is black aside from a the left hand lower corner being slightly illuminated with red light when I try to take the photo. I've researched this on the net and I think that the problem it that the shutter is stuck in the closed position.

    Since your menus are working it's not an LCD problem. It could be a closed shutter or a defective sensor. Both problems are major and, considering the modest price of your camera, it's probably not worth spending the money to fix.

    If it is not a hardware problem, you can solve yourself.
