    I'm having the same problem of the LCD showing only black w/a box in the middle of screen.  I was able to look at previously shot pix, but now I can't bring those up and there's a message on the screen that says "No Image".

    When I turn on the camera, the LCD screen is black and cannot be used to take pictures. Sometimes the view finder is also black, and sometimes it isn't. I can see the pictures I have already taken. If I take a picture when the LCD is black, the picture turns out black.

    I can fool around by turning the camera on and off and by switching to view the pictures I have taken, and sometimes the LCD starts to work again. I plan on calling a camera store tomorrow (12/19/07).

    My C 643 turns on with the white welcome screen then turns black with the focus brackets in the middle. I can see thru the view finder but I can't see or take any new pictures. I can review stored internally & on card. I think this is something Kodak prgramed to happen after the warranty expires now they want $90 plus tax and shipping to fix it

If the image comes out black/purple/green, you are the victim of a dead CCD in the camera. Cost is prohibitively high to repair, unless the camera is under warranty. This is the result of poorly manufactured image sensors that allow tiny amounts of moisture into the innards. Nearly all camera manufacturers were affected, as most source their "chips" from outside suppliers, where quality was beyond the camera maker's control.

Same problem. I actually went onto a chinese website, there are a lot of complains on the same problem. It seems so common on this product. Hope Nikon can recall this camera

My canon pc 1058 image screen is dark .. i can't see no pics can be taking

Two things there, first... could be a problem with the viewer screen, or, second choice could be a problem with the CCD sensor or go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Canon service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps.

LCD screen not on when camera on?

You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.

Blank picture screen

Did you accidentally hit the "DISP" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries.
