Your LCD is broken.
I'm an Imaging Salesman at Circuit City and I would normally say to get the LCD fixed but that would be a waste of money due to the fact that this model was released in 2004 and you would be better off getting a new camera.

If you are looking for another Canon....
For good quality and "user-friendliness" i would suggest the:

Canon SD1000, SD870, SD750 (Thin, sleek designs that come with rechargable batteries)

For more a more convenient price without loss of quality you might want to check out the Canon PowerShot A560.
(A somewhat large and bulky camera that runs on regular AA batteries)

Good Luck!!

How do you set the minutes on the clock?

There are two ways to set the clock on your coffee maker. 1- When you initially plug in the coffee maker, the unit will beep and "12:00" will flash on the LCD display for a few seconds. Press immediately the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. If "12:00" starts to flash, press the PROG button (n) for a few seconds until the "12:00" flashes again. Then press the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. There are AM and PM indicators on the top right side of the LCD screen. To set the current minutes, press the PROG button (n) and then press the h/min button (o) until the correct minutes appear on the LCD display. After 5 seconds, the unit will beep and the time will stop flashing. 2- At any other time, you can set the clock or change the set time by pressing and holding the h/min button (o). The unit will beep and "12:00" will flash on the LCD display. Use the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. There are AM and PM indicators on the top right side of the LCD screen. To set the current minutes, press the PROG button (n) and then press the h/min button (o) until the correct minutes appear on the LCD display. After 5 seconds, the unit will beep and the time will stop flashing. Notes: Your clock has now been set and will continue to keep the correct time, even after the coffee maker has been shut off. Unplugging the coffee maker or a power failure will reset the clock to 12:00 AM. Repeat the instructions above to reset the clock

Sangean h2o1 clock is flashing. The radio display doesn't flash - only the clock. I've reset the clock, changed the batteries, and generally played with the other settings. Can't figure out why the time...

Here's the thing: When you change the batteries, the radio thinks you need to reset the time, even though the time has been preserved and is correct even after you change the batteries. Here's what you do: Pretend you need to reset the time. With the radio off (recommended), press and hold the "Band" button with the "set" notation underneath it. The hour will flash. "Reset" the hour by using the tuning buttons, as you would if the radio were new, and then change it back to the correct hour. Press the "Band" button again and repeat the process for the flashing minute display. Press "Band" again to end the process. You will have successfully fooled the H201 into thinking that you have reset the time, and the time display will have stopped flashing. (This does not appear to work if you do not actually pretend to change the hour and minute and just keep pressing the "Band" button -- you have to go through the procedure as though you were actually changing the time.)

The screen on my camera will not display anything at all. The camera appears to turn on, but the screen is blank. Even when I switch it from one mode to another, there is nothing displayed on the screen

Have you tried taking pictures with it? Do the pictures show up when taken? If so, then it's likely that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

1. try to connect to an external monitor using an analog video cable. monitor is on. turn on laptop after a minute press and hold on Fn key then press F8 at the same time to toggle the display between LCD to Monitor, if nothing happened do step 2.
2. turn of laptop. remove video cable. press and hold D key then press power button at the same time. this will test the LCD. check if there are colors display. if yes do step 3, if no replace lcd and lcd cable.
3. make sure laptop is off. press and hold on the Fn key then press power button at the same time to run a quick test. Even no display or anything wait for about 5 minutes check if you will hear series of beeps. If yes.replace video card if it is expansion, replace motherboard if it is integrated.

The camera wont turn on

hi...ensure that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model.....
If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

Polar F6 - Battery replaced, display corrupt after watch loads.

I had the same problem and attempted what banjodoug suggested above. It did not help. I had a faint display even before I re-inserted it into my watch frame. I surmised it wasn't the battery position.

I then took apart the damn thing and put it back together several times, each time rushing to push the setting/center button only to derive the same problem over and over.

I then took it apart one more time and pinched in all of the sides of the metal frame that holds it all together, thinking that I had a bad ground. After I did that, I reassembed it and waited. The display came on with the test display and then eventually went to the standard display on its own and all was good to go.

I suspect the issue was solved by correcting an improper ground and a proper initialization process - both solved by the steps I took above.

Hope it works for you!

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

Camera will not show image when shooting on lcd, why?

press the "disp" button in your camera twice or thrice.
even if the display is not coming means check if the lens cover is opening in front of camera.
if its open and display s not getting displayed means try to reset the camera.
Have you tried a hard reset on their camera by removing the main power batteries for 60 seconds and the reinserting them as if it were the first time power up. This may not fix your particular problem, but when the processor that runs all of the electronic features of the camera gets confused, this is the best way to clear its confusion.
even if problem is not cleared take it to service centre.
