The menu screen comes on? You can change items?
You really need a lens and a manual.
And the manual is readily available on Canon's Web site. (So are lenses, but the manual is free.)

You say you took 8 pictures. Where did you review these images after taking them? Did you look at them on the LCD screen or did you have to import them into the computer to look at them?
We are trying to determine if your LCD panel works at all but simply doesn't display what you want... vs. the LCD not even working. The difference in those two are completely different.
It is possible to put the display into a mode where it does not show anything (just a black screen) -- no shooting information, no image review, etc.
BUT... If you press the "Menu" button on the camera, then the menu should appear on the rear LCD screen and this should work even if the display was otherwise set to remain dark.
If the menu button doesn't wake up the display and show a menu, then the camera needs service.

Yes, I do need to crack open the manual! I viewed the 8 pictures on my computer, not the camera. Yes, even pressing menu does not show anything on the screen, it just remains dark.
So it sounds like it needs to be repaired? I just wasn't sure if this was a function due to no lens being connected. Any idea on the cost of that kind of repair? Is it something I could do myself?
