I got my Canon a590 this past christmas; since then, every so often, it will not show any image on the screen. All I can see is the menu options. Every time I want to take a picture, all I get is absolute black. However, I can view pictures on a memory card with no problem on the main screen. The last 3-4 times this happened, the problem usually went away within a few days. I've tried replacing the batteries, but to no avail. Is my lens bad, or is it due to a more intricate problem?
