My camera was working just fine yesterday but when I went to use it today the screen was black. I took some pictures and seen if they came out by hooking the camera to my computer and it is still taking pictures, I just can't see what I am taking a picture of.

Re: Why can I not see anything on my screen??
1. try this - look along the screen from the side. Can you see shadowy images?
If yes, the back light has gone.
If Nothing is seem then a connector possibly has come adrift.
Try gently squeezing and tapping the camera near the base in the region on the screen- you may get it back in.
There will be no repair option though if all else fails - new camera time.

I just tried something that I read a few days back tried it then but just tried it again. I held my Canon Power Shot S3 SI Camera Lens up to a Very Bright Light and started Taking Pictures started in TV mode then kept switching modes but taking lots of pictures in the different modes kept checking after taking a few I could start noticing that the screen was getting lighter and lighter with each picture that I took ... and Finely it started looking more and more like a picture.. and now my baby is back working...... thanks to who every the person was that posted about using a light to get her the Death of the Black Screen working... Just a little hint make sure that the light is really bright a flashlight did not work the yesterday for me so today a used a lamp and now me and mt Camera are both doing the Happy Dance .... Hope This May Help Others Who's Cameras Have Been Hit With The BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH....hope this works for you like it did me.:)
My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?
2 cent plastic pin holding AF sub-mirror broke. See above. Unfortunately Canon charges a bit above 2 cents to fix it. Saving pennies on plastic instead of metal will make Canon a boatload of money because they will all break eventually. Of course if everyone changes manufacturer on their next camera this might backfire.
