This is a common problem that we ( in the camera repair game ) see a lot . The cause is faulty CCD sensor ( see enclosed pic from a Canon camera ) to see what I mean . Canon will repair this ( or replace the camera if they cannot repair it inside 4 weeks ) free of charge. Why does this happen ? Badly manufactured ( produced in 2002-2004 run ) sensor goes in the camera and starts outputting noise after 1 or 2 years instead of working properly for +- 10 years.

A light rap with a knuckle when powering up fixed the problem, at least temporarily. Lens extended, camera works fine. Not exactly a technical fix, but it worked for me.

for the person whose screen is blank but the photos work- I had the same problem and solved it by replacing the smaller date/time battery which slides out of the larger battery copartment. The battery is a CR1220 smaller than a dime and even flatter. Hope this works for you.

Mine was the "optical assembly"
I wrote Canon's president pointing out all these postings about this issue and how the other earlier Powershots and A models had this issue and were part of service recalls. I compared Canon to Toyota, hoping it wasn't aware of the problem despite all the online chatter. I also said I was sad I could no longer recommend buying high end Canon photo or video products to organizations any more all over them not wanting to do a $130 repair on a widely publicized issue.
Outcome. I heard promptly from a Canon rep. They paid for speed shipping to Chicago service center. I had it back in 3 days, fixed for free. The repair sheet says "the optical assembly did not operate propoerly causing no image output... it was replaced..."
