It seems to be the CCD. Black screen can be avoid by adjusting the white balance, which makes the perfect balance of the color. I had same problem with my sony camera.

Re: Black screen problem with digital camera

There are various different types of rechargable battteries. It's possible that there's just some sort of disconnect between the LCD and the sensor in record mode. You can switch between using the lcd screen and the eyepiece as a viewer. It sounds like the image sensor has gone bad in the camera, and that it is not a common problem for this model.

When the camera won't turn on or shows black screen check the batteries. Connect camera to an AC adapter. Remove all batteries, disconnect AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect adapter. Recharge batteries only as described in the user's manual.Turn on camera. If the camera gets wet, turn it off if it's on. Remove all batteries and media. Let it dry completely for at least 24 hours before reinserting batteries. or Try to replace that camera if it is under warranty.
