Check your manual exposure. Either put the camera in auto mode, or reset your exposure to a smaller number.

Sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. You may be in luck. Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. Please check the following two links for more info:

Try this, it may or may not work. Insert the Video cable plug in and out of its slot a few times. The cable when inserted turns the screen off. But sometimes corrosion can build up on the internal plug switch, also causing the screen to turn off. Inserting and removing the cable a few times can sometimes knowck off this corrosion.

My screen is black but the shutter is open and wont display


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service. http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $100.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.
