I have repaired several of these. On most of them I found that one or both nano fuses on the main board have gone bad.
They are labeled F2 and F3, they are 2 amp nano fuses.
They are located on the back side of the main circuit board, near the top. Right at the top of the SD card socket.
You will need to use a soldering iron, and desolder both Battery contacts. Also several wires on the main board will need to be desoldered, to get to the fuses.
You should have some experience working with surface mount components and soldering before attempting the repair.

Remove the 2 screws on the side,
Remove the 3 screws in the buttom. (2 of which are tri-wing)
Remove the 2 screws in the battery compartment.
Flip out the chrome side (from the front backwards)
Remove the 2 screws underneath the chrome side.
Turn the camera upside down. You can now flip the backcover down (gently lift the cover, both on the mid by the tripd hole and on the side, where the crome plate was) Watch out for the USB connector.
Gently lift the broken LCD out. You need to release (flip up) the tiny white lock on the connector to release the ribbon.
Assembly same procedure, but backwards.
Beware of the flash components. The can give a nasty electrical chock.
Hey big mike08, Make sure your LCD mode is not set to power save mode which if it is set to power save mode the image you just took will not display on the LCD immediately after the image is taken. The LCD mode can be selected in the set up menu. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
Easiest way to fix the problem is to "format" the card using the set-up menu. Follow the steps from the menu to the format setting. That will erase everything on the card, including any images that are on it. It will also wipe out any bad or corrupt data that may be preventing the camera from reading it properly. It's pretty common.
I had this problem w/ my canon. It is a cracked LCD screen. I took the camera apart and replaced the LCD screen. I ordered the new one for $50 including shipping. you may have to do some detective work to find the part you need. I used a screwdriver for eyeglasses.
