It sounds like maybe one of the pins are broke, I wold try flashlight and magnifying glass to inspect it, If you find one of the mettle contacts on the card is broke it is probably ok to just pull it out firmly it will break the card contacts but I doubt it will harm you camera ~T?M~

Is the display blank only after taking pictures, or blank all the time (i.e., can you see the menus)? If you can see the menus, try performing a Reset All (page 67 in the manual). The idea here is to set the contrast/backlighting to factory presets.

The manual can be found here.

If the display is blank all the time, try holding it near a bright light and look at it from different angles to see if you can see any image on the display (if the backlight isn't working, you may be still able to see items on the display). If that's the case, you may be able to navigate to the menus and perform a Reset All.

Otherwise, pull the batteries out and leave them out for a longer period of time - several days, if possible. This should also reset the camera.

Failing this, you will likley need to send it in for repair.

Check the basics first. Some of these suggestions may sound silly but I have done stuff like this.
Have you got something screwed to the tripod mount? This can overlap the door and stop it opening.
Have you dropped or bashed the camera recently?
Are you moving the door slide release in the correct direction? Check there is no damage visible on the camera or if there's anything trapped round the edge of the door jamming it?
Using a gentle but firm pressure with you thumb, press the door down into the 'closed' position. (I find sitting with the camera in my lap works best for this). Then use the slide release on the door. Release the pressure to see if the door has opened. You might need to roll your thumb round in flat circles to feel if the door is tight or slack when closed.
If this doesn't work or you have found some damage I would recommend you take it to a camera specialist as they will have the correct tools and skills to sort it out.
