Optio S12 black photos

Hi all, my camera switches on and I see all the menus but there is no display from the lens. Just a black screen in the background.

If I take a picture the flash works but again all I get is a totally black photograph.

What's up?

This is just a guess but it sounds like the sensor may have died
