Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
Check to see whether you are saving them to an unusual location on the CF card. If you are finding the image files from the card but just cannot open them, you may have taken the pictures as "raw" format images. If they are in "raw" format, you may need special software to open them on the computer.

Hi there, did you check the card itself? SD cards have a locking switch on the side. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Put it back in the camera and see if that helps.

After some inspecting of the camera it seen the issue lies with the lens, not the camera itself so don't go banging the camera up or you might damage some other part and the camera will be broken for real. Inside the lens is a closer which block the internal system from capturing image. The closer look just like the one you see before turning on your camera but it's smaller and it's inside the lens way in the far back. Look carefully and you'll see it - you will see the closer if your screen is black while in capture mode otherwise you will see a nice round glass (the internal lens for capturing image/video).
Think of if like this, imagine an eyeball with its eyelid close. That's what happened when the screen is black while in capturing mode.
HOW TO FIX IT: In order to fix the black screen while in capture mode and cost as little damage to your camera as possible, simply turn on the camera in either picture or video mode and look inside your lens, there should be a closer in the far back end. Gently hit the lens a few times until you don't see the closer no more and only a round glass and your camera should begins capturing image and video again.
Good luck to you all. And remember don't use anger to force your camera to works or you will regret it.

If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I will contact Canon to see if this can be repaired."
Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
