I dropped my camera on a soft surface (grass). After that, I cannot see any image on the LCD. All the other functions on the LCD work. I can see the menu and can replay previously recorded pictures.
However, in recording mode, i can see no picture on the LCD.
If I click, the camera flahes, but a completely black picture is taken. I can replay it but it just shows up as black on the LCD.
Is something blocking the lens, or is something wrong the CCD?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

The LCD screen of the Camera may be blurry when capturing closeup images. Move so there is at least 2 ft (0.6 m) between camera and subject. Decrease Exposure Compensation and check if it helps. Press the Menu button, highlight Exposure Compensation Setting and press OK button. Decrease the value towards -2.0. Select Okay and press Menu button to exit. Check if the issue is resolved. Place the camera on a flat, steady surface or use a tripod and check if it helps. Clean the LCD screen of the Camera. (Blow gently on the lens or LCD to remove dust and dirt. Wipe gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated lens-cleaning tissue. Do not use cleaning solutions unless designed specifically for camera lenses. Do not allow chemicals, such as suntan lotion, to contact painted surfaces.)
If the issue is not resolved reset the Camera. To reset the Camera, remove the battery, turn the mode dial to Camera position for 1 minute and insert the battery.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
This problem is only related with back light in lcd screen and has nothing to do with ccd imager chip as explained by previous expert. LCD screen is not getting enough voltage to lit back light to show its image thus you get darker image. I suspect back light circuit section at main board got physical damage due to drop of camera. Visual check by qualified camera tech is needed to fix it.
This is a common problem with all LCD screens without anti-reflective coatings.This is normal. Increase the brightness of LCD while shooting in the sun. Internal memory normally takes only a few images. This is normal. Use a memory card to shoot more images.
I have the same problem I went to the canon service department and they told me that its a common problem and the image sensor has to be change it will cost me 160.00 depending on the area where I'm getting it done so for me it's better to buy a new one.
DSLR camera was not made to be used as a point and shoot camera and you cant preview the shot before taking a picture. You are to use the eye piece to focus right. Also before taking a picture, push the exposure button just a little to let the camera focus right.
