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

Lcd monitor screen stays black

\015 I have the casio s500 and when turned on the monitor screen stays blank (black). it still takes photos but these appear black too. nothing can be viewed on the screen, no menu functions or anything although when the buttons are pressed they beep as though they are working normally but you can't see what you are doing because the screen stays black. the battery is fully charged and the camera hasn't been damaged in any way. someone said there might be a button which turns off the screen to conserve battery which may have been pressed by accident but i don't know how to correct it if this is the case. the lens looks as though it is working fine, coming out and going in as normal, and the cover also looks as though it is opening fully. please help!\015
