Re: the LCD screen wont work

Are you sure the display is on? some cameras have a display button you can turn on and off to conserve battery. The LCDs can crack also, if its cracked it may need fixed. Most cameras have a tv output you can connect the camera to the tc and view what the screen displays. Maybe you could use that and flip threw the menu or atleast check to see if its a mode its stuck in or if the LCD is broken.

I have a Canon A720is (about 5 years old) that recently has started to show problems.

I think you immersed camera in water. This might have damaged corroded contact of LCD supply line and PCB.

Screen does not work, stays black

Water and LCD screens don't mix. I'd say the screen itself is shot, and will need to be replaced. However, I cannot find anyone selling these parts. Your best bet may be to watch for a broken one on eBay - so long as it's not the LCD that's broken, and buy it for parts.

Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. If that doesn't work, you need to take the new Nikon back.

Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!

The Same problem

I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:

1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.

2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.

3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on

4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.

5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.

5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.
