At the back of the camera next to the view finder (bottom right hand corner) is a button and icon marked SEL.
pressing this button toggles the lens image from the view finder to the lcd screen and back again.
IF neither view is available then I suspect your camera needs some TLC at a repair shop.
hope this helps.

Hi, The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to cannon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost. Thank you
Seems your camera Sony DSC-T1 got bad ccd imager problem, as camera does not show live image to record and shows previously stored pictures fine in playback mode. Sony will repair it free of cost. Click Sony CCD Imager Support for details.
Please see similar problem titled "black screen". Welsbar posted a possible solution as a clarification request. It involves switching your picture mode to TV and changing the shutter speed to 15 seconds, depressing the shutter button for 7 seconds, then opening battery enclosure. Repeat as necessary - I did this twice before I started to see anything on the screen. Twice more before photos start to look okay. Don't know yet if this is a lasting solution, but at least now I can start using the camera again and find out!
According to Welsbar, the problem is an internal part (iris?) that gets stuck when camera hasn't been used frequently.
Well, this is a fatal error that happens with the CCD chip. According to this page, you can try one of two things: You can slap it firmly against your hand in an effort to fix the broken transmission, or you can call up Nikon. According to the link provided above, they are supposed to repair it free of charge and regardless of warranty.
You either have a bad CCD or aperture. Look down into the lens when the camera is on, is there a small opening at the bottom? If theres a small open circle at the bottom, your CCD is bad not the aperture. Its very possible your camera is covered under a huge CCD recall but I cant figure out this site so Im not sure what your model is. If its F717, Sony will fix it free.
