Canon Powershot A80 problem

    I've had a Powershot A80 for about a year and a half now, and there
    seems to be a problem with the shutter. When I turn the camera on, the
    lens comes out and the outer cover opens, but what I'm guesssing is the
    shutter doesn't open. (is this the correct term for a digital camera?)
    The LCD works normally, except the image is completely black. If I
    try to take a picture it shows up completely black. The number
    displays and previous photos show up fine on the LCD. Any ideas on how
    to fix this? I saw a prior post that recommended whacking the camera
    on your palm. That fixed it temporarily, but now the problem is back
    and I don't want to damage something else by banging the camera around.
