Re: My Screen Wont come on (but the Camera Will)

There is a display button on most cameras that you can turn the LCD on and off to conserve battery. Some people like to use the viewfinder so this option is put into some cameras. If the display button is pressed before you turn it off it may save the "last known settings" so every time its turned on and off its still in that state. Look for a menu button or a display button see if you can get it to come back up. Some have a tv out, you could try and plug it into a tv to use as a monitor if it wont come back up. It could be cracked from an impact or the illumination light could be bad. Cracked LCDs are fairly common so thats possible.

When i power on the screen stays blank,wont take pictures and other buttons wont responed

What makes you think, your camera is on? Could it be the battery is empty, and your camera is not working at all? did you try charging the battery in an external charger?
Did you check the contacts of the battery and in the camera?
Don't clean contacts with anything sharp. Just a dry cloth or cotton swabs will do.
What was the last time your camera worked correct?

When I try to transfer pictures to any computer the camera just repeatedly blinks its green light on and off, the screen stays blank, and nothing happens. How can I fix this?

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it.

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
