Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera
My screen goes black but its not the powersave because i know what that is and its not that. when its black, u can see whats on the screen but not clearly at all, its like the screen bulb has broken? i dont know, but is that the case?
I had the same problem. The flex cable for backlight was broken. I take out the backlight LED module. There have one resister along with 4 LED. I soldered two wires (AWG 30) onto two sides of resistor. Just follow the trace of flex cable and then solder the wires to the pins of connector directly. Although there have 4 wire on the backlight cable, it only need two to work. In order to avoid any finger print and dust fall on to the LCD, it would better wear a hat and plastic glove during this operation.

I just got this problem yesterday, and I couldn't find any solutions. Out of frustration, I smacked the side of my camera (not the side with the usb port, but the other side), and the light just came back all of a sudden. Probably not the best way to fix something, and maybe it was just luck, but it's worth a shot.

Have the same problem, smacked the camera on the side a few times and the screen lights up again. yay for now, but I guess it's time to start shop around for a new one.

I have the same problem with my FX9. I bought a replacement LCD screen from ebay and changed it myself. Still has the same problem after I changed it. Then I thought it was the backlight not working, so, I email the ebay guy who sold me the LCD screen to see if he has a replacement for the backlight. He asked me to send him the camera. He locates in Chicago. I send it in, he found the problem with the backlight. He fixed it for $25 and sends the camera back to me, all within five days. So, you all should try this guy: RongJuan Xie <email@example.com>.

I took mine to JESSOPS camera shop and they told me it would have to go to panasonic to repair it and will cost £244.90 but i could buy a new one from them for £130 so i suppose it makes it a very expensive throw away camera its a comman fault but they wont repair unless under warranty so i suggest extended warranty

This is so weird. I was having the exact same problem. And pushing the battery cover lock worked for me as well, although for how long, I have no idea. I HATE this camera. I've had Canon and Fujis before this and neither had the extreme delay between pressing the button and the photo actually being taken. I was actually looking forward to getting rid of it because the screen is kaput but since I can't really afford a new camera, I'm stuck with it for the time being. There goes that new Canon I'd hoped to get...
