LCD screen displays settings only. Won't take pics
Screen displays Canon logo when camera is turned on (color) and then goes gray. When I push display, screen displays settings only on black ground. Camera will not take pictures. Tried holding Display while lens down on table. No success - 1 try.

Turn the camera on, and press the DISP button on the back of the camera. This turns the LCD screen on and off. The idea of this button is to save battery power (you would then use the peep hole optical viewfinder in its place).
Your computer screen may need some color adjustments. Have you tried printing some of the pics to see if the color is as amazing as on the camera? Or have you tried viewing the pics on another computer for comparison?
Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!
if u see them on lcd and final output also have these grey streaks then ur problem might be this u can call canon for free repairs but first try to clean ur camera head with head cleaning cassette and see if it helps otherwise call them see link
hi...ensure that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model..... If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. Perform a reset procedure on the camera....
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):
