Bit odd this one, Was shooting yesterday on auto mode and all of a sudden the viewfinder went black, Now all settings etc are visible in the viewfider and everything seems to be working, shutter fires, flash works but nothing in the viewfinder and all pics are just blank.
Could this be a shutter problem maybe jammed closed?
Trying to find somewhere to get it looked at is impossible in this area so wondered if anyone has had the same problem, Camera 16 months old and out of warranty.

That is odd. What is the status of the LCD ? Does that work ? And pressing the Display button does not correct your problem either?
If you can access the settings menu try doing a rest all or reset to defualts I forgot which it is called.
You can also try removing the battery and holding down the power switch for about 30-45 seconds.
The fact that you can take pictures but cannot see them after can mean several different problems internally
Hopefully it is just a software/firmware glitch.

Your welcone, I would suggest calling Canon and see what they will give you for a repair estimate. They just had refurb SX50's on sale for $290 about a week ago, I know because I bought one for my daughter I already have one.
