I used my camera two days ago and it worked fine, then yesterday i went to use it and it turns on but the screen is black and it takes black pictures. I have gone through the settings and cannot figure out what happened.

Either the lens is out of alignment, or the CCD or worse has gone defective. Either way it sounds like it may be worth it to just purchase a new camera. You do always have the option of repair as well. Thanks, Lee

I had an Olympus 725 which I bought in Dec 06, this xmas I went home to see my family in Ireland (I live in Australia) and stopped in Thailand on the way back, the camera broke when I was snorkeling, 4 days out of Warranty!!!! Same issues as you guys had. When I got back on the 16th Jan I brought it back to the shop, the guy told me my best bet would be to get onto Olympus directly and explain the situation. I did and they told me to send it in. I wrote a letter of complaint and sent it in with the camera (I also had problems with my XD corrupting itself, and I lost a lot of pic's). Yesterday when I came in from work there was note in my letterbox from Australia airmail saying they had tried to deliver a package to me but there was nobody home. Just found out awhile ago it's a new camera, a 795:) so I'm well happy. Will buy an extended warranty aswell tho, just in case. Sooo my advice is to deal directly with Olympus and not with any shops or agents.
This might be an E18 lens error issue. Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. Have already fixed several cameras with this problem by using these methods:
