They will repair it for $50 if you send it in to them, otherwise you can probably get a screen on ebay.

Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white

This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.

You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Black screen

Assumed that LCD screen is black and what about Eye piece viewfinder? Does it show picture to you?
If LCD Screen is black, it means it has no back-light. check any button to turn back light on & off at LCD portion.
There can be an other reason of black LCD. a flexible cable which connects LCD and Camera circuits and it can be broken/ cracked/ out of order.

My camera has a black screen even when is on

It does not look good.
Here are some problems which could be with this camera:
LCD broken or bad.
CCD problem.

Since you go have some light on the green light, then that appears to be a LCD problem. this can happen if the camera had an impact to cause the LCD to be damaged or disconnected in some way.

Dropped my camera, now it's broken.

Take the batteries out and recharge them and also look in the battery compartment for any cracks or contacts out of place. what your describing is that the camera can't get enough power to load up.
