Yes , what you seem to have is a camera with a faulty CCD sensor ( see enclosed image ). Good news is that Canon fixes this particular fault free of charge.No view - 015f5e1.jpg

There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram

With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.

LCD BLACK


When you say you can view pictures. Do you mean you can view them on the lcd on the camera itself or on your computer? It sounds like the CCD chip went bad most likely. If its not under warranty I would consider purchasing a new camera.
Thank you,

The live-view sensor could be defective or broken.

Also, the camera has a viewfinder.
