Are you sure the battery is ok?
Did you press the button display (bottom right nest to the display) several times?
Next, how long did you not use this camera? If it was for long, something inside could be corroded.
Did you recently drop the camera? Something more serious could be wrong. I'm not sure you can make any picture, because you don't need the screen to make a picture. You then could look is a proper picture is on the memory card.
If the rest of the camera is working ok the viewing must work also. Check is the off button is moving correct. (And not blocked)
Resetting could be an option, but you need the display to answer the question. This is in the user manual.
So camera doesn't give live view to take picture? and you can view old / stored pictures OK, is it?

Remove the SD card and look for the little sliding switch on the left side of the card (it's very tiny). If this switch is shown in the "Lock" position, slide it to the other unlocked position. If this switch is already in the unlocked position, slide it to locked and then back to unlocked one time. Reinsert the card and try it out in the camera.
