Any suggestions?

So i put in an old photo card and it comes up in the display as "no image" on a black screen. When i go to take a shot, it reads "memory Card Full".

I got my Canon a590 this past christmas; since then, every so often, it will not show any image on the screen. All I can see is the menu options.

The last 3-4 times this happened, the problem usually went away within a few days. I've tried replacing the batteries, but to no avail. Is my lens bad, or is it due to a more intricate problem?
