Question about Cameras
I had/have the same problem. All I do is flip the camera vertical and it works. The screen displays appropriately, I think its some type of lens inside the camera that has came lose and it lines up properly when held vertical. It's a **** one solution, but it worked on mine and you can still take pictures. I would like to be fixed completely but I don't know how to. HELP!

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
