I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in
Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode.
I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped
into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:
I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

Refer to this service notice from Canon. If you can see icons on the LCD, and can view photos you have taken in the past, you probably have an image sensor (CCD) failure. If Canon determines this is the problem, they will repair your camera at no cost, regardless of warranty status.
