Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

My powershot A70 will not take a picture

\015 My A70 will allow me to review existing pictures but the screen remains black when I switch to the picture taking mode. I tried taking a picture anyway but when I review the picture is black.
