    When I turned my camera on it is pitch black. As if the lens isn't registering any light input at all. I can see the menu and the cameras features, but the camera isn't displaying any of what is in front of it. I can also take pictures of the pitch black screen....

Dark LCD


Is it possible that you've gone into M (manual) mode and the shutter speed is fast and a small aperture (large number) been selected? Or has the Exposure compensation been adjusted to be -2? Does it do the same thing in fully automatic mode? It certainly sounds like some setting has been adjusted incorrectly.
