the ribbon cable that carries the signal to the screen sounds like it has become damaged
thatcan cause the problem
when it is all the way open it stretches the cable resulting in a gap to form, so when only open part of the way there is still a signal. see if there is anything in the hinge that might be causing the stretching of the cable, as that is almost surely the problem..

No image through view finder or lcd monitor

try removeing the battery and then trying again,

The device might need a reset

but it sounds like a hardware side problem witch would need to get repaired.

if you still have warranty then that should save you.
if you dont have warranty id recommend you contact your dealer, or a local professional, there is a repair service finder in the front page of fixya under the top experts.

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help

The led screen is black as is the video being recorded. Everything else seems to working. yes the lense cap is off. It as if no images are coming through the lense.

First, Please confirm that if LCD is blank then can you see the images in view finder ? If not then the CCD IMAGER is faulty and if LCD is blank and you can see the image in view finder then then a Flexible board which connect the LCD with the main unit is broken, Please replace these parts according to the symptom. Moreover, for your ease pics are shown below of both parts with part number.

First pic is for CCD IMAGER
second pic is for flexible board.
