You need to press the live view button to see it on the LCD.
However, this kind of camera is designed to be used with the viewfinder*, try looking through that to frame your picture. There are a number of advantages to using the viewfinder like lower battery drain and it is much easier to hold the camera steady.

You should use the viewfinder until you understand a little more about the camera's auto focusing modes. The camera may not be taking a picture due to insufficient light, which causes it not to lock focus when you use Touch AF. You must still press the Shutter Button to take the picture.

So you are saying that when you are not in movie mode, and you press the button shown in the picture, the live image from the sensor does not show on the LCD?
