Look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset

My Canon EOS Rebel T2i EF-S 18-55 IS Kit 18MP Digital SLR 4462B003 USA Model will not come on. What is the possible problem?

It's probably coming on but the button has been pushed to activate the viewfinder so all information gose there and the LCD screen remains black OR because this camera has an interesting feature just under the viewfinder that scenes the photographer looking into the viewfinder automatically shuts off the rear LCD screen. If this sensor is blacked then the LCD screen will not come on.

I can't figure out how to use the large screen to set my picture to take it I can only use the small viewfinder

Not knowing the make or model of the camera you have I can only guess that there is a switch possibly lower right of the small viewfinder with the letters LCD/EVF. This would be a slider type I'm going to presume but may be a button. This switch will toggle between viewfinder and LCD

My scream is black with the cap off

Just to the right of the button that raises the flash is a button labelled |O| or similar, and this toggles between the screen and the viewfinder. You might have accidentally touched this and now get a black screen while the viewfinder will be displaying the pic you're about to take. Press once to toggle back and the screen should return to life.
Hope this helps.

Camera screen remains black when I turn on shooting mode

Turn the camera on. With the screen showing, press the DISP button and this will give you a selection of different screen views i.e. squares for aligning shot squarely; black - thru viewfinder only; etc. Different modes will give you different screen displays i.e. P setting screens are different to when you have the camera set on AUTO.

Hope this helps.

All pictures taken are just Blackness

is there a view finder on this camera? often when there is a screen and a viewfinder there is a button to toggle between them, my sony camera has such a button although it is not a cybershot. i imagine the button says "dis" or "LCD" and just needs to be toggled. if the display were bad you would not be able to view pictures on it. display works must be configuration issue.

I would suggest looking through the viewfinder. most cameras have a button on the back near the lcd screen that toggles the viewfinder or the lcd. If you give me the make and model of your camera i can tell you exactly where it is.

Viewfinder is black

If you're asking about the electronic viewfinder (where you put your eye to the back of the camera), that can be turned on/off via the SEL button at the button right corner of the viewfinder. In fact, the LCD screen staying on/off is selected with the same button. Press it three times to cycle through the various modes of "viewing". If the viewfinder or LCD stays off after cycling through the SEL button selections, I would say your camera needs to be serviced at a repair shop.

I hope this helps!

LCD screen stopped working

sounds like the LCD screen viewfinder may have been twisted or accidentally catched or got hooked or snagged on on something at one stage and pulled something, if the screen went yellow it means the three wires going to it are possibly broken or the small white clip was slowly coming undone inside the Viewfinder for the red and green to no longer work to complete the image also indicates why the buttons on the viewfinder are not responding, try twisting the viewfinder very lightly whilst on, but most likely the small white clip holding the wires has come off at the elbow inside the camera
