Even though the screen is black the camera still functions normally but it won't let me upload anything. When i try to upload my pictures it keeps saying USB Mode connecting........ then it says below that: Switch on [ MENU ] .... i don't know what to do ????

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none.
