Answers :

Your screen connector has become loose most likely. It seems that you posted two different problems submitted by different users. If you can't see the pictures on your camera screen but can transfer them to your computer and see them, then your connector for the screen is at fault. If you can't take pictures at all, then you have a problem with the lens or other component. Please let me know of the exact problem so I can better diagnose the component at fault
I did some research on your A70-If the lcd is bad but the camera sensor is ok your pics will come out fine when viewing or printing-if pics are no good then the image sensor in camera lens is bad-this camera is about 5 yrs old and would make complete sense to replace with newer model-possibly A570 or sd750 would be great choices-also memory card won't fit new models so you have to buy a new 1 or 2 gb sd card if you stick with cannon. Good Luck!
