Hello everyone! I just wanted to ask what could be the problem with my Canon 70d? A few days earlier, while taking pictures, my camera's LCD screen had suddenly turned black. When pressing the buttons like the menu, info, playback etc, the screen can still show it. However, when you put it back to shooting mode, the screen is still black but you can see the grid (it looks like you have the lens cap on). So I tried to press the start/stop button or even turn it off and then on again to make it go back to normal. Sometimes it goes back to normal in just one press but other times, it doesn't. I'm not really good at explaining but feel free to ask me questions to make it more clear. I attached a picture below to give you all an idea on what it looks like.
PLEASE DO HELP ME! 😞
Thank you in advance to anyone who took their time to read and help me!

Live view, correct?
Looks like a stuck shutter/mirror. It probably needs repair.

Does it work if you turn off live view and take a picture using the viewfinder ?
