Didplay goes black after one photo

My Canon A2200 has stopped working in normal condition; takes a photo, displays image and then display goes black.  I posted a similar question and quite a few people suggested that it was my battery.  I purchased a new battery, charged it and tried it out to no avail.  I contacted Canon USA and was told that a sensor has malfunctioned and unfortunately the camera has reached the end of its service life (no spare/repair parts.)

Does anyone know where the said sensor might be located and what business might stock these?  If there are any sensors out there I could repair my camera.

Thank you

I was able to contact Canon (USA) and their tech said that a sensor had gone bad; would not be any more specific than that, and that particular camera is out of production and there are no repair parts for it.

I found an exact match to my camera online; bought it and transferred the main board from it to mine. Now my “old” Canon A2200 works just like new again.

Many people told me it was the battery, sorry people that was wrong. I bought a new battery, charged it, put it in the camera with the same results.

Thanks to everyone who tried to answer this question for me.
