Sometimes I am able to take photos or video with no problem, however, other times there is a black screen or very faint and distorted display when pointing at a bright source. The display always works in the playback mode. The camera will work perfectly when I try it hours later or the following day. Can you help?

Cost of repair would be probably more than the camera is now worth. But is the screen just showing black? An issue with the tiny SD10/20/30/40... cameras (IXUS versions also) was that sometimes a little corrosion could form on the A/V plug switch that would in effect simulate the plug being inserted, thus turning off the screen. If you have your television video plug available, try inserting and removing the plug in its A/V port a few times. If this is the problem with your camera, sometimes this helps remove that corrosion, setting things right again.
Try this, it may or may not work. Insert the Video cable plug in and out of its slot a few times. The cable when inserted turns the screen off. But sometimes corrosion can build up on the internal plug switch, also causing the screen to turn off. Inserting and removing the cable a few times can sometimes knowck off this corrosion.
My Sansa has a similar problem. Sometimes when the Sansa turns on (after the Sandisk logo) the screen will either turn black, blue, or black and white stripes. The player still works, but it is hard to navigate without the screen, obviously.
What I end up doing is letting the backlight turn off and then pressing any button. Sometimes when the screen comes back, the display is allright again. But sometimes it takes more than a few tries. Turning it off and on again seems to work a little better, but it is more time consuming.
