I am not sure what your camera is, however since you are in the Canon powershot A700, I will go with that.
Reasonable, not sure, but not a bad price for the camera you have. Make sure if it is not still under some kind of warranty.
Canon also had a trade-in or trade-up program for refurbished units.

Let's try some things.
Do your menus come up at all and are they clear, not the problem when you look through the lens.
If the screen shows a correct menu, then reset the menus to default. See what happens then.
If the problem still exists, then you need the camera repaired. Canon seems to have given a great price for what you are having repaired. When this is replaced, it will need re-calculation on their equipment.
They probably will check out the rest of the camera to make sure all is okay as well and to specs.
Hope it works.

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

Blurred and distorted view of the subject


Its possible that there is a CCD issue with your camera. I've been reading more and more people are having CCD issues with the S1-IS. The CCD is the part of the camera that captures the image, and usually they distort or do some funky things with the pictures. Its entirely possible they would knock something out of focus.

A95 Power shot Images on the LCD screen are monochrome,blurred with stripes


Unfortunutly this sounds like the cable connecting the screen to the main board is either loose or damaged. I would return it to the store you got it from.

My camera's screen is not functioning


This is internal problem and need expert attention - more than likely a connector issue. Not a DIY job unless you are very brave.
