Now a days, many cameras come with an option to switch off the LCD ( to increase the battery life ). So, check for it. Usually, pressing the 'display' button (if there is one) would solve the problem.

When I click the button to take a picture the screen goes blank and doesn't come back on. Power light is still on.


Your shutter is stuck open. Remove the lens. Set to fireworks mode. May need to be in a dark room. When you press the shutter button tap the camera with an object that won't damage it. I used a rubber coated knife handle. Pull the battery and repeat. Tapping all around the camera. Hopefully it will break free. Then do some continuous shooting to loosen it up.

The LCD screen comes on but is blank. Cannot take or retrieve pictures.


Hello my friend,
Did you drop the camera ?
Basically this can be Lens broken or screen broken. you can check that by:
1. try to move your hands around the lens and see if it will change something. 2. take a picture even tough the screen is blank and then take the memory card and insert it into your computer, if you can see the picture on your computer that means the screen is broken. but if you cannot see the picture on PC that means the Lens is broken.

When I turn on my camera the screen is blank


Do the icons show up on the screen or is it totally blank?
Can you view previous pictures?
If the icons show on the screen then have a look into the lens to see if the shutter is closed over the inner lens. you may have to adjust the zoom to bring the inner lens and shutter mechanism up close to the outer lens to get a better look.
If the shutter is covering the inner lens then it is stuck and will need to be freed by opening the camera up.
If the screen is just black then it just may be possible that the ribbon for the screen has partially slipped out of it's socket on the main board.
If it comes out all the way then the camera should not even power up.
