My screen stopped showing the pictures completely. During playback and when I'm taking pictures. Could it be that the LCD burnt out and can that be fixed?
I'm assuming that the camera still takes and records images as usual and
that you can upload them to view successfully from the memory card, and that the camera powers up and the battery charges as usual.
If so, then the most common causes are a failed LCD panel or loose connectors to the panel from the main circuit board, or a failed backlight. Depending on the age of your model, a new LCD panel should be available and the price depends upon the size. A failed backlight or a loose connector is more common though. In some instances, the LCD driver on the main board has failed, and unless under manufacturer's warranty that usually is terminal for the camera.
It's also not uncommon for users to have simply turned off the LCD display. Not all Canon models allow you to do so, but I suggest that you check your owner's manual to eliminate this really simple cause.
Unfortunately I cannot give more specific advice as you haven't stated the exact model of Canon camera which you 're asking about.
