My screen has gone completely black, it lights up when I turn it on so it is still functioning but not displaying any image. I am under impression that resetting the camera will fix this, is there a way to reset it without being able to see the menu navigation?

You can try using the AV out port and hook it to a tv or monitor...Im not sure if the menus will diplay but it's more a try.
Also you can try removing the battery and the date/time button battery then holding down the power switch for at least 45 seconds.
Have you tried pressing the display switche to toggle thru the display option too?

Thanks John, I will try an AV link & removing all batteries. No luck with the display switch button.

My screen has gone completely black, it lights up when I turn it on so it is still functioning but not displaying any image.
Happened out of the blue - whilst Im sure there will be a service mode button press somewhere, I couldn't find reference to it. So I had output via HDMI, put a in blank card, the camera was taking pictures and there was playback too on the remote screen, just nothing on the back of the camera, no menus, but there was a hint of backlight. Hmm. Still could be a lockup in the display section. the "Reset all menus" did not bring it back.
Given that there was nothing traumatic that had happened to the camera, after searching the net, I found a disassembly guide for the G16 on ifixit. As its later sibling, they share the same display, so at a whim it was decided to pull it apart. The disassembly instructions for the G16 almost matched the G15 - only difference was there are two less screws to take out, and the small menu/control board cable locks into a different spot, but otherwise it is substantially the same.
I disconnected the LCD display from the camera just as if I was going to replace it, then carefully reconnected it and put the control/menu board back in place. Whatever that did, the screen came to life again when I put the battery back in.
You can only try. & I have no idea why or what happened, but it came back. Hope this may help someone else

I think I am also facing this issue. Did you get any proper solution?
