Try removing batteries and card and leaving them out for a while to allow camera settings to default.
Replace batteries only and see if you get "Card Error" message.
If you get this, then try again with card fitted
Check firmware version
Possibly card storage too big. Upgrade firmware to version 1.77
If you have no user manual there is a PDF version available to download here:
All the error messages are given in the manual with possible solutions.

SOURCE: LCD screen stays dark
I have the same problem and very frustrating! The camera turns on by won't show anything (totally black) in the camera mode. The menu still works. If I take a picture the display is black and shows black for it in the display mode model as well. Tried everything that I can think of but nothing helped. (Taking out the batteries and reinstalling, switching the mode from display to camera and back, stepping through each mode option, stepping through each menu options). The last option worked once but won't work later on. From this forum this seems to be a common problem with this camera. Guess won't buy another camera from Canon any more. I bought a camera (non-digitals SLR) from Canon before and was very happy with it for over 20 years. Thought Canon had the right thing in camera. This problem made me think twice when I buy another camera in the future. Perhap Canon is not as good as I thought. By not fixing the known problem, they are ruining their reputation.

Check the internal contacts for bent, broken or improper connections.
Try inserting and pressing the battery in the camera while keeping the battery door open to see if the camera powers (This may help you determine if the battery is being held in correctly by the battery holder or the battery door.)
Check that the battery door closes properly and is snapped into place properly. Make sure there are no cracks or any defections on the battery door.
If you check all of these things and there is still no power to the camera you may want to send the camera to Olympus for evaluation and or repair service.
Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
