You can do this by setting the communication mode to "ptp" instead of "normal" in the Set Up mode of the menu. Make sure you do thios before connecting the camera to the PC via the USB cable. Note that you may only be able to transfer Jpeg images and not Raw images.
Page 157 of the User manual tells you about this. The video system settings are for connection to a TV and can be ignored. You should set the communication to "Normal" if you have installed the Canon G3 USB driver software on your PC. If you have not then communication needs to be set to "ptp". Note that certain file types cannot be transferred in the latter mode. It is best to keep the images as JPEG.
Assuming you are recording images on to the memory card[are you?].
Is is a 'peer through the screen to take model or can you use a normal viewfinder?
If the latter I would learn to live without looking at the images ,until yo can see them on the screen[computer or TV] at home.
Otherwise at this age it will be new camera time I feel,
But do get onto Canon webs site technical support
there may be a simple solution.
I think you should solve the 'washed out' LCD screen issue.
Here's a link to an accessory which might help.
I've tested it on my Olympus E10 LCD screen, (although I don't use it), and I found it very satifactory.
Hope this helps.
