It could be that the screen has either disconnected internally or been damaged to the point that it is not showing anything anymore. The easiest way to check is to take a few random photos and attempt to download to see if the camera is taking pictures and the is just not working.
If it is taking pictures and the screen is dead you can take it in to a local repair facility for an estimate (in all likelihood it will be cheaper to replace the camera than repair it since most repairs are $75-$100 an hour with a 1 hour min).
If it doesn't download any images, then it may be trying to take photos but it is not actually taking any. This would likely indicate a larger malady. If this is the case refer to my earlier statement about repairs.

You have sound but no picture. Green power light is on and NOT flashing. You get a screen flash or flicker on power-up or even a minute of screen before going all black. It is your inverter board. Common problem on LCDs (maybe more so on Phillips?). They are easy to replace (unplug-plug) and are available on the net.
