Yes, the monitor can be replaced. If you're comfortable working with electronics, you can order the part here. If you're not comfortable working with electronics, any good camera repair shop should be able to do it, though of course they will charge you for the labor.

I have the same issue with mine, lcd and viewfinder black and if you take a picture it is black. I talked to Canon and while they are willing to send me a link for free shipping, they will not budge on repair cost and my warranty is up (I've had it for 18 months and use it lightly). No way will I pay $119 for repair when I have seen the S3s for double that. Of course, I will NOT be buying one since Canon admitted there was a problem and then failed to fix the problem in designing the S2s, they just aren't admitting it. The CSR I talked to said this was the first he's heard of it even though a quick internet search brings up plenty of cases of black screen problems.

Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

This sounds like a stuck shutter, with the shutter stuck open. See this link, trying Fix #5A. If Fix 5A does not work, your camera is then likely experiencing a broken ribbon cable to the shutter control. Unfortunately, repairing that cable would be more costly than the value of the camera. Also, repairing the cable yourself is not recommended as finding a replacement cable would be just as costly, and the actual repair is very difficult.
