Camera shows it black. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. To minimize this potential, place the camera in "Continuous Shutter" mode, and take a large amount of pictures continuously to attempt to lubricate the shutter (you can delete those pictures later). have a peek at these guys I had a stuck shutter on a Canon SD1000.

but after attached it with new lens 420-800mm i can see images from Live View but after press shutter the image comes out just black. That's right, 15 seconds.Press the shutter release.
