Your screen may not be broken, but perhaps just switched on to display through the eye hole.
That happens to mine sometimes.
Try pressing the Display button once or twice
and see if that does anything.

Do the pictures turn out solid black but you can still see the menus on the camera and play back old pictures? Or is the LCD solid black and shows nothing and so you can't do anything with the camera?
If the pictures are solid black but you can see menus then your CCD is defective and you will have to replace it or the entire lens assembly (which includes the CCD).
If the LCD is black and you can't see anything, then you have an LCD problem and that will most likely have to be replaced.
One solution would be to buy a defective camera online and do the work yourself, switch out parts and make one good camera.

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):
No solution for your first problem but it's normal that you cannot view your photo on the LCD screen before actually taking it. Due to the way a reflex camera is built, you can't have a live view on your LCD. The Fuji S3 Pro has this type of preview as also most recent camera (Nikon D300, Canon 40D...).
This sounds like a broken or cracked LCD screen. The backlite is working, thus you will get the white screen. The LCD could also be disconnected internally, or has other problems. But this is a direct problem with the LCD. A camera like this can usually take pictures, and you may be able to use it to set the menus by using the video cable to the TV or computer screen (some flat screens have video inputs).
