Camera switching on ok but lcd sceen blank

Your problem can be the result of a number of causes - two common ones I will list here.
Most common cause would be a failed printed connecting cable between the main camera electronics and the flip out display panel. This special cable passes through the display hinge and is sometimes subject to failure.
A second possibility is a faulty display backlight.
You can check that the camera is still producing video output by using the AV cables conected to a TV display with the camera set to CAMERA mode.
I trust that this information is of assistance. RHN

My lcd won't display a picture. it is white with colored lines going across it. If i flip the screen it used to show the picture, but now will just show a blank screen. I'm thinking there is something...

the connector between the LCD and internal parts of the camcorder is called RIBBON. based on what you said, you need to call Samsung hotline for repair of your camcorder

Display Cannon 630 powershot

Thanks for your reply
Out of frustration I was sitting looking at the camera and thought to try all buttons and see what hapenned. On the righthand side of the camera in the bottom left position is a button marked display. Normally during live display mode, you can either switch the screen on or of by pressing this button (to conserve the batteries). If the camera is powered off and then on again, the screen automatically is in live display screen active mode again. For some reason my display remained off. When I depressed this button once after switching the camera on - voyla! The display worked again in live viewing mode. I do not know whether the screen is supposed to stay in the off mode when powered down in live display off mode even when it is switched off and then back on again or not, but the previous times I did, it was automatically on when powered up again.
So, before repairing your camera, please make sure that it is actually broken - refrain from making a fool of yourself like I did.
Thanks once again for your support

Samsung VP-D101 blank LCD display

John, Samsung has been having very serious problems with the CCD imagers in their camcorders for some time now. I would give them a call and let them know how disappointed you are in the camera. Almost all manufacturers having this problem are repairing the cameras at no charge to the customer. Good luck to you! Joe Weibel
