I cannot see anything on the LCD screen when I am taking photos,

Customer Question

I cannot see anything on the LCD screen when I am taking photos, but can see images taken. This has happened three times in the last two days. Twice it has self corrected after an hour or so. I thought it was connected to a fading battery once but now the battery is fresh and I still cannot get an image.
