Please check the bottom side of camera for model number and brand/ make info.
Thanks.

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for waiting, what monitor is missing the picture, is it viewfinder (eye piece) or the LCD screen?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

lcd screen, but works ok for set up etc, just not for pics

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
ah OK, does the camera display saved pictures if press Play button near the top left of LCD screen?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Thanks Tony for the info.
It seems you are looking for "live view" on LCD screen (in camera mode) to take fresh picture, unfortunately this camera doesn't have such feature (newer models do have such facility) and need to use viewfinder to take picture.
Since LCD screen shows setup features/ icons and shows saved pictures in Play mode that means camera is just fine and has no issue.
It just didn't made with such feature to view the scene on LCD while taking pictures as the new models do. I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
