When the power is turned on for taking photographs, the camera screen does not show any picture and hence even after clicking a photographs, no photographs are seen. I can only see a few icons including three stars and number of photographs left to shoot.
Press the OK button in the middle of the arrow keys - the LCD screen will display. It is not on bt default to save battery power. It will turn itself off after a while to save power, but you can turn the LCD screen on again (& off) using the OK switch.

There is a setting on digital SLR cameras that allows you to just use the eye piece to photograph (as in the old pre-digital days) or to use the screen as the view finder. Cameras are all different but you will find how to do this in the manual. If you don't have a manual, do a google search.
You can take a picture and look at it on the screen. This lets you verify that the camera is working, and allows a salesman to demonstrate the camera to a potential customer. However this picture will last only until you take the next picture or turn the camera off, whichever happens first. If you want to retain the picture then you will need a memory card.
Press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This button turns the LCD screen on and off to save battery power. You would then use the "peep hole" (optical display finder) in its place.
Seeing you're a bit unspecific I can't give a particularly specific answer, but my qualified guess would be you've by accident have gotten grease into the lens, hence the leaf like shapes (even when you're previewing photos, before taking them).
I'd recommend getting a professional looking at it, or buying a new one, since compact cameras are not to be meddled with.
black screen blur image showingcannot see subject to be photographed when camera power on,if press to take photo nothing shows, just black screen. it was fine one minute then nothing the next. battery is fully charged, memory card ok.
Can you take a picture and it looks good when you transfer it to your computer? Is that what you meant? Can you see the menus, or do you see nothing at all on the screen at any time?
Its possible your camera is in a 'power save' mode and the LCD is turned off to save battery power. Try pressing the "Disp" button once and see if it turns on. If not, press it again... did it turn on? This happens to a lot of people.
If that is not the solution, then please contact me and let me know.

We had the same issue. After turning on, nothing on the view screen and the buttons didn't work. The camera could turn on, the turn on screen and sound happened and we cold turn off (show off screen and sound)...even after changing batteries. It was like that for a week.
I found it had to do with TV connector slot. Thinking back, my daughter had been playing with the TV connector right before it stopped working. I took a small hair pin and put it in the TV connector slot, lightly wiggled it and the camera sprung back to life. I'm guessing the camera hardware was acting like it was still plugged in...hence turning off the view screen.
