Most likely the CCD imager chip is loose and cannot get electricity. Thereby cannot send an image to the main board in the camera. This is similar to an antennae not being totally connected to a radio or tv, and when you whack it the shock jostles the connection, showing some image or sound.
Canon specifically has a recall for all cameras with a sony ccd that seems to have a high temperature and humidity ccd disconnection problem, they repair it for free after evaluating it!
