Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z55 Digital Camera
When I turn the camera on in picture taking mode the display shows for no more than 2 or 3 seconds then goes off. You can switch to displaying previous shots and the battery strength is fine. You can also take pictures - you just can't see what you're taking when you are taking the shot.
I tried Solution #1 (twice) with no luck. But, when drilling down thru the options in "menu" I found one that said "reset" and tried that. Voila! Back in business. Display no longer blanks in 1-2 seconds. Don't know if this only works after reformatting internal memory or not. So, if no luck with "reset" try to reformat then reset.

It sounds like your lcd is going out. Sometimes it will do that when you switch to picture taking mode. Don't understand why. Try taking your mem card out. If you have pics on your internal mem transfer them to ur computer. Format your internal memory and then try it again. If it still does it then you're going to have to send it in.

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....
