Question about Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera
A Camera Labs review of this camera, November 2008, states, "If the screen is folded back on itself, the DISP button only switches between the two EVF modes." (EVF = Electronic View Finder.) i.e. it is not affecting the screen at all.
On my Canon 60D with a similar folding screen the same appears to be the case but, if I fold back the screen while it is functioning it works OK.
Also, I noticed that pressing several other buttons on the back of the camera effects changes to the screen. Might be worth trying these on your camera.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
