Question about Cameras
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, postback with the brand and model number of the digital camera.
Offhand, based on your description of "...black background..." on a digital camera but LCD displays menu & functions, it is almost always indicative that the CCD (charge-couple device) and/or its related electronic circuitry has failed. The CCD is the eye of the camera (Optical Sensor). The camera would seem blind. The fault could be confirmed if previously taken pictures still stored in the memory card could still be viewed but not the recent ones when the fault has started.
Unfortunately, CCD failures and / or its circuitry calls for intricate dis-assembly procedures, access to a service manual a necessity, specialized tools and equipment, a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair is not recommended.
Perhaps your best bet would then be to consult with and/or seek the services of an authorized Service Center or a qualified professional. Alternately, evaluate other options considering age of unit, parts availability, cost of repair, shipping, downtime and comparative prices of newer / better models. There would be instances where repair is no longer economically viable.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
