Hi i have a Canon Powershot A610. I have a loose wire, I think in the screen or the body of the camera, not sure what the problem is. Everytime I take a picture you cant see what you are taking a picture of because the screen is all black. So, when you go and look at what you have taken under the play button it shows a blank/black screen. I don't know what to do, please help me!

Thanks.
