Having problems with your Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera ?

Camera screen dark


\015 I dropped my Casio Exilim EX-S500, and now the screen is very dark (almost black) and impossibl to shoot with. It still takes pictures, and if I look very closely I can see that the screen is recording what the lens is pointed at, but it is too dark to be useful. What can I do? I love this camera, please help!\015
