Question about Cameras
Press display (DISP.) button to turn the display on. This button is
located on the rear of the camera and toggles the camera's LCD display.
The button is usually printed with <DISP.> on the button or above the button depending on the model.
pressing the <DISP.> button doesn't turn the display on, remove
and replace the batteries in the camera. If this still doesn't correct
the issue ..then there what cannon says to this error :
It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensors used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments.
Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.

If the problem is only on the view finder and on the lcd monitor. if your pictures look good / normal, then there is something wrong with the lcd, possibly would need to be replaced or the sensor which shows the picture on the lcd screen. it might be best to have this inspected and repaired by a professional. Is your canon covered by the warranty?
