Troubleshooting for the Canon A570 IS...Please help!

I got this camera less than a month ago and I am having some problems with it. Sometimes when I try to take a picture with it, the pictures turn out black. I push the button, it beeps, waits for about 3 seconds and then takes a picture that is just black (I'm using the viewfinder when this happens). Also, when I am in picture mode, it will sometimes not switch between the LCD and the viewfinder. I can hear it change, but the LCD just comes up black. Whenever I am at home and trying to find what is wrong, it works fine so is this something I am doing or should I take the camera back?

Black Pictures on Canon A570 IS

Canon Support said to send the camera into the service center. The camera was bad. Since you are definitely still under warranty, I would recommend returning the camera to the store and getting a new one. There's really nothing else you can do unless you want to wait for Canon Support to fix it.
