Have you tried pressing the DISP button a few times while the camera is on? That should take care of the blank LCD screen.

As Steve said in the shooting mode you can toggle the LCD on and off with the display button. To test if your LCD is working at all press the Play button you should see your pictures there on the LCD

 

Another thing I wanted to mention on your SX40HS is a book I found written specifically on that camera. It's called " A Short Course in Powershot SX40HS Photograpy". Its a full sized wired bound book 161 pages with some very usefull information for that camera as well as mine the SX50HS which is very similar. I found it on Amazon
