Two things there, first... could be a problem with the viewer screen, or, second choice could be a problem with the CCD sensor or go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines,
blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being
recorded on the camera's flash card.
I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD
(Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Canon service. Istrongly suggest(taking intoconsiderationthe age of yourcamera) to evaluatethe cost ofrepairversusthe cost of anewcamerawith similarfeatures,before making afinaldesicion.
Can you still take pictures using the view finder? if yes! the rest of the camera is functional. The view screen can be replaced making the camera fully functional, but if the camera has other issues it needs to be assessed.
Ah yes! you have pressed the display button. Turn the camera on and you see the icons in the display, look for the Disp button and press it, the display will cycle through its modes icons, black, image and icons.
if its the screen (LCD) and if its cracked (may show black spots and colorful lines) then you can do 2 things, 1. get a new camera 2. get a new screen for it and install it (you probaly can get a screen on ebay, but it requires opening up the camera and working on the components on the inside, its not that hard to do, but if you dont have experince with working on electronics, i would have someone replace the screen or simply buy a new camera from the store or even ebay
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, try pressing the DISP button once with the camera turned on.
The LCD itself may not have problems. If it ain't broken it most probably doesn't have a problem. Most likely the problems you have are given by a faulty connector between the LCD and the camera's mainboard. You should take the camera to a service center to have it checked. Tell them to make an estimate over the repair costs before they actually do something. In this way you will know what prices can you espect over the repair. I'll give about 60% chances that this is a minor defect involving that connector. In this case they will just need to reconnect it back firmly.
