Having problems with your Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera ?

Black screen when trying to take a picture and photos come up black.

I can only view my pictures, but, as I have said before, I can't see anything in my screen when I try to take a picture, and afterwards, when I look at the pictures i've "taken", they're all black!\015
