Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
It seems as if the display on the LCD screen is off but you can still hear sound as if you were searching through the menus.
Has the camera been dropped? If the camera appears to work properly and you can download the pictures to a PC ok, then it sounds like your LCD display has failed.
I have replaced several of these screens on Kodak cameras. If the camera is under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired free of charge, provided there is no evidence of abuse.
You can order the screen directly from the parts department of the manufacture and attempt to replace it yourself but I would only suggest doing that if you feel confident in doing so.
I wrote an article on how to replace a damged LCD screen.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

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.
