My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped. I get the same result when trying to view a picture of a card. Is there any way to reset the camera?

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?
