You are plainly unaware of the potentials and hang ups of owning a SLR camera
A SLR camera such as this does not offer a monitor preview like most other cameras.
This is because the viewfinder[via a mirror] uses the lens to view the scene.

There are some Olympus models that allow it via an electronic trick and many other makes that appear to be SLR are in fact not and utilize a small LCD screen in the eyepiece.
But a true SLR cannot do this.

The lcd monitor does not come on,model no, S760


One of the possibilities is that the setting for the different modes of the LCD is set to blank or off. Press the button for the monitor, or choose the menu option for the monitor mode to have the LCD in the on position.
Can you take any pictures and can they be seen on a computer at all with a card reader? If this can be done and you still have no LCD light, then make sure the settings are correct.
You can try to play the camera through a cable to a tv using a cable usually provided with most digital cameras.

D80 nikon LCD Monitor


If you can see the taken image in the monitor- fully lit- then the monitor is not faulty.
However you cannot get Menu's is that right?
Ths then would be a problem for the manufacturers support web site.
If the camera is no longer in Warranty my guess is that it would be cheaper or nearly so simply to replace it than a repair

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
