Do the menus show up on the display, or is it only a problem with photos taken?

Press the display button (DISP) to make sure your display is turned on if menus don't show up either.

If the photos are black and the menus are working, it's probably an imaging sensor failure (or one of the supporting components), with no signal being generated by the CCD.

I'd check to make sure you're in Auto Mode (in case you have a shooting mode set to manual with settings that are causing an underexposed photo).

See page 21 of this manual for changing shooting mode:

It is likely the sensor or one of the supporting components. In other words, the signal from the sensor is not making it through the image processing if the photos are black.

Make sure it's not a mechanical issue (for example, the lens cover staying closed). If not, it's likely failed in a way that would require service from the manufacturer to correct.
