What mode did you have the camera in, and what were the settings?
If you have the camera in Manual mode with the wrong settings, the photo will be black because the exposure is too dark, and the rear LCD will also be black because it is simulating the dark exposure you have set.

Thanks Mike, I have somehow sorted this problem, I think it was something to do with A.E.B.setting. I canceled this item which was set to take HDR photos and that seems to have done the trick. Mind you I tried so many things it could have been any one of them. I will keep buggering on with the technicalities of photography and hope that I improve before I leave this mortal coil. Thank's once again for all your help.
