Powershot S3 EVF and LCD blacked out on power up.

Haven't used my S3 in a few years. Decided to power it up the other day and the LCD and EVF are blacked out, but the display overlays show up just fine. After leaving it on for a couple minutes both displays are fine, but when I turn it off and let it sit for an hour, it does the same thing.

Just wondering what might be going on with it.

Is it time to send it to the electronics recycle?
