Need more info. Does the menu display? Then LCD probably good. If the menu does not display, then LCD (or its driver circuitry) is probably bad. Not display after taking a photo? Or not display when you push the arrow button to turn on display. Check to make sure card is in camera. Set menu to factory default to make sure some setting in the custom functions isn't turning off the LCD. Also check the brightness level.
Instructions for this are on Page 179 of the D-90 users manual. First go to the menu and select the custom settings menu then scroll down to "timers/AF Lock."
Select this then select the number of shots you want the camera to take at one time on the self timer setting. Exit the menu.
Then go to the top of the camera and find the little button to the right of the control panel which contains a series of stacked rectangles.
Depress this button (camera must be on) and the control panel will clear. Rotate the wheel on the back of the camera while holding the button down until you see a little clock symbol.
If you have set it in the menu to take only one shot, you will see only the little clock. If you have set it to take multiple shots you will see the series of stacked rectangles next to the little clock.
Depress the shutter fully then walk or run to get in the picture. Just before the picture shoots, the autofocus light will flash warning you that the picture is about to be taken. The camera will shoot in the amount of time you have selected in the menu.
If you want to shoot another delayed shutter picture, repeat the procedure using the button and wheel.
I had a similar problem in that after changing one of the cartridges (I bought a whole set), the message "cannot rotate cartridge" appeared. I tried pressing the cartridge in more firmly and may have caused the carousel to rotate a little in the process. I cycled the power which seemed to clear the error message and allowed me to select the next cartridge to change, but upon opening the door to change it, was unable to remove the old one as it was positioned a little too high. I eventually cleared the problem by manually rotating the carousel by pressing in and holding the carousel release (see arrow) while rotating the carousel downward slightly, to line the cartridge up as it appears in this picture. Then powered it back up and was able to do the normal cartridge replacement procedure for the remaining cartridges without further error messages.

dj & izik13,
If you can both acces the settings menu let me know if you can change any of the settings. Have you tried to reset? To do it you have to turn on the camera and hold down the two buttons that have a green dot by them on the top by the shutter release (the +/- ) and the AF button by the top menu display for longer than 2 seconds, just remember you'll have to reset some of your favorite setting all over again, but it will get things back to the original factory settings. Let me know if that worked
