There is a button to toggle the LCD on and off. this is for saving power when you dont need to see it and are using the view finder.
Check your manual for the exact icon for that button. Press it a fiew times.
If that doesnt work let me know the exact model number and what you were doing right before it died.
The battery in my pair of FreeFocus Fieldvision 10x50 binoculars is a AG3 button cell. I cannot tell you more because the rest of the writing on it is in either Japanese of Chinese characters. I hope this helps
If you haven't contacted Minolta to purchase a replacement set you could try contacting Binoculars.com in the US. They ship international if need be. If Minolta can't help. Measure the circumference of the eyepiece and you could try a different brand of caps. Steiner Binoculars have a number of different caps and I have used their one piece cover on a number of older binoculars I have to protect the eyepiece when I am out and about. I'm in Australia and have used the above company for these parts and they are very helpful.
I'm supposing by eyepiece you mean the rubber or plastic eyecup. The eyepiece is the whole unit that contains the lens. Nikon has a service center in many countries. If you have one in your country then they can order the part. I have ordered from Nikon. They find the part number if you tell them your model and can email you an order form. Alternately Binoculars.com is very good to deal with as is Adorama Camera in New York. Both will sell internationally.
The screw you removed holds the battery cover in place. The cover is roughly rectangular with rounded corners. Once the screw is out, gently insert a sharp blade into the hairline crack between the cover and the binocular body and pry the cover off. The two watch batteries will be obvious.
