When taking a picture the LCD screen goes black for 1 sec.
My camera has never had a black out period (on the LCD screen) once I have pressed the button to take a picture. I bought it because the could take multi shots within seconds and the screen did not go black like on most cameras. Have I accidentally changed a setting?

If the camera battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.
Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.
you might have switched the shooting process to timer mode. please refer the instruction manual to change it back to normal mode.normally there will be button near the lcd screen with the symbol of a timer deviice. if you click it once it sets the delay of shot to 2 sec and for the second time to 10 secs.and for the third time, it goes back to normal mode. thanks for using fixya. please dont forget to rate my solution!!!
it would appear that the lcd screen has malfunctioned and would need repair.... you can try power cycle by taking batteries out and press and hold power button down for 10 secs, draining all power out of camera, then put the batteries back in and try again
