Annoying isn't it, but it can be fixed quite simply by repair technicians. Cost is not absurd and well worth fixing it - Camera repair quote here.
This is a good and handy camera.
If you are to attempt this repair yourself, beware of several bands that hold different parts of the internal portion together. Only attempt with proper tools and make sure to wear an armband to avoid static electricity zapping the camera.

Black screen


Not to worry, this a very simple problem. Your display is set to off. All you need do is set it back on. And this is how you will do it.
To the right of your screen where you have your buttons, look for the display button. Below it is usually labeled DISP. Press this button again and again and watch as the screen display changes. At one of those instances it goes blank/off, but at the others it displays the view in deferent manners. Stop at any of those display options where it shows the view.

CAMERA TURNS OFF WHEN IN PICTURE OR VIDEO MODE


Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.

Black screen


Did you try pressing the DISP button while trying to take pictures? It turns the display on and off.
