This model has had problems with the CCD element that acts as the eye of the camera. I would recommend that you return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and let them replace it at no charge to you.
Good luck to you.

Turn the camera on, and press the DISP button on the back of the camera. This turns the LCD screen on and off. The idea of this button is to save battery power (you would then use the peep hole optical viewfinder in its place).
Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button? The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

The EVOLT E-500 does not have a live view LCD screen so you can see the image you wish to take a picture of. You must use the viewfinder to take images with this camera and only use the LCD to review the images.
As far as to reset the camera back to factory defaults, you need to turn the camera dial to P go to the Menu and on the camera 1 tab right arrow over and then arrow down to custom reset setting and then hit the right arrow highlight reset and press ok it will show reset yes or no highlight yes and press ok this will reset the camera back to its factory settings
first, if the LCD does not display the picture you just capture, there is a possibility that the digital module of the device is broken and that it does not show or save the pictures you have recently captured.
if the pictures you recently captured can be viewed on a computer, there is a possibility that the connection between the LCD and the camera is loose. we canot say that tha issue is the LCD since it displays previoulsy captured image.
to work around the issue, it is best if you visit a local repair shop or a technician to have a look at the unit and have it repaired.
as per the cost, it will actually depend on the damage of the device. you may want to put a new camera as one of your options.
you can see images clearly?
but no Menu items show is that what you mean?
This would indicate a firmware malfunction.
If you see nothing at all on the screen but only 'ghost' images then the back light has blown.
Try first of all with the camera on tapping gently at the base of the casing in the region of the screen- this is where the connectors to the main board are.
Contact The Minolta support team.
If you are getting nowhere - I suggest the next camera - repairs are not usually an economic option if at all.
