Dear Yagerrd, This is a bugger that plagues many a Mac owner with children.  It is not known how the little tykes seem to get just the right button combination, but they seem to do it with remarkable ease.  Sit him in front of the Powerbook for a half hour and...just kidding.  Here's your solution:
Go to the System Preferences underneath the Blue Apple in the upper left of the screen.  Then, just open the Universal Access preference pane (yes, that is PANE, like window pane) and you will be under the "seeing" tab.  Look down the window to DISPLAY and right under the word "Display" will be a little radio button that says Black on White.  Click on that and you should be set to go!
If for some odd reason, this is not the solution, please right back and someone will assist you further, okay? Sincerely, Jeffrey Wrobel

Many cameras will only display pictures taken by that camera (or at least the same model). Also, if a picture has been edited in any way (opening a pic in a photo editor and saving it without making any changes counts as editing) then the camera will not display it.

There no pic in the display,it seems like its taking a pic but wont

Connect the camera to a PC and download a few pictures. Or remove the SDcard and insert it in a USB card reader. If pics are black also it's a problem with the CCD chip and connected electronics.

If there's a clean picture it's a display problem. Display replacement is quite a micro mechanical feat - but can be done. Displays can be taken from dead camera's saving a few.

My Canon PowerShot SD880 IS has a black display screen. I cannot take pics now with the black screen, but the display DOES work for pics taken before the screen went black. Please help!

I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. I found one posting elsewhere that said that this was a "common" problem. That person's camera was under warranty. Mine isn't, but it's less than 2 years old.

Pics are blank in viewer

there are many reasons that no picture is displayed:
1. there is no picture in the first place. (camera lens closed when picture was taken)
2. you are not on display mode (toggle to display mode not "take picture" or capture mode)
3. defective memory card.
4. you are on display mode but on another sub-mode which does not display pics... (toggle to display, details, etc...)

Unable to view pics

Copy the existing photos on to your PC, switch off the camera. Remove the SD card and format the SD-card using a SD-card reader, this will clear all the card contents. Now try using it in your Camera again. Ideally, you should be able to save photos on this SD card. Other way would be to insert another SD card into your camera and click photos and check whether those photos are being saved into the SD card(this can be done using display option in your digicam.)

My Sony DSC H-2 camera LCD display

Does the finder LCD work ? Push the button directly to the right of the eyepiece to toggle between the large panel LCD and the finder and PLAY a recorded pic. If it will display a recorded pic but not display a live pic, the shutter blades are stuck together. It'll have to go to repair - about a $105 repair.

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
