I've done some further research on the web..looks like a CCD problem and canon is inconsistent with free repair/postal costs.

Does the menu in the camera work?
You may need to activate some Postview function in the menu. If the camera takes pictures, you should be able to view them in playback mode. There could also be a Preview mode, which requires pressing OK before storing pictures. Preview/Postview should cancel each other though...

Image flicker when viewing pictures in playback mode

You have the camera in Highlights mode.. while in playback use the up,down,right,left pad press it up and it will go through different displays like what settings you had the camera in when you took the picture then there is a graph screen... after that one is the highlights display which is what you have it on. Push up one more time to have it on regular playback mode. The manual explains this much better than I just did. If you have the manual you should check it out if my instructions dont help.

Cannot locate Playback mode for Polaroid i1035 Didital Camera

It may have something to do with your camera running on auto, internal, or sd option for your memory storage.

When you get to your black screen, try pressing the "w" in your zoom to see if you have taken any pictures. You did find the playback congradulations.
