There are two reasons for this problem.
1) if the flex ribbion cable carrying signal to shutter and appartuer motor gets damaged it does not opens the shutter. In result you get only black screen and no picture.
2) another reason is defective CCD.
both the problems can't be fixed by the user itself. You have to show it to a repair man

Try to see if you can connect the cable to a TV and see if it will do the same thing.
Example: camera - cable plug - to Input of TV.
