I have a Canon Ixus 970 IS. Suddenly the screen shows black

I have a Canon Ixus 970 IS. Suddenly the screen shows black in any mode other than video, though the camera will take a picture and will then show it on the screen. What is the problem?
Hi there,
This sounds like a software glitch.
Try resetting the camera:
Press the MENU button, move across to select the Tools category, then move down to select "Reset All". Press the FUNC.SET button and confirm.
Let me know if that works?

That's great. Many thanks. Wish I knew how I had messed it up though!
