Powershot SX530 HS - screen goes dark after one picture

after taking one shot (regardless of mode) the screen goes dark, if I took a picture while dark there’s just a black picture saved
if i go into the saved picture (by pressing the triangle “play” button) then come back (by lightly pressung the shutter) the screen comes back

I recently bought this camera and am still in the process of testing it out before I get a higher class SD card
so i’ve wondered if it may be an SD card issue...
but I have also tried using the lowest picture quality and it is still is the same — the screen goes dark and cannot take any more pictures after one shot

this feels like a software issue, help?

Re: Powershot SX530 HS - screen goes dark after one picture

and further info about the issue

if i continue to take pictures while in the black screen, after about 1-2 shots the screen come back on, when it first comes back the screen is super bright (like if over exposed or too much flash), then dims to regular brightness
