Try this, in your manual at the bottom of pg. 229 that says, "If you turn off the power while the 'shooting settings display' screen is displayed, the same screen will be displayed when you turn on the power again. To avoid this, press the <INFO> button to turn off the display on the LCD monitor, then turn off the power switch."
The converse also applies. Get into the shooting settings display with the INFO button and power down. The display will come on when you power up again.
It also solved my problem of getting the mode selection button selections to show on the LCD when needed.
The tv remote that came with the tv unit.The tv remote might have channels buttons up/down buttons functions and numbers pads might be shorted and dead and no longer functions anymore.U have a Digital Camera turn it on take the tv rmote put in the front of the Digital Camera pushes each buttons one by one all the buttons that work u will able to see a flashing white light on the camera vewing screen,because the Digital Camera can read INFERED input signal to see a output u see on the the camera viewing screen.After u test it on the front of a Digital Camera any buttons don't have a white light flashes INFERED read out than those buttons functions are shorted and dead.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv original remote to replace and used.
If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.
IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!
Hope this helps.

Have you got the user manual? If not, you can download it from www.iusermanual.com. I am not familiar with you videocam but the mannual shows all of the buttons and functions etc. There are what appears to be at least one critical button on the outer edge of the LCD screen itself. Perhaps this may affect its functions and be causing your problem. Anyway, have a good look at the manual and be sure you understand the functions of the buttons. Because everything else works OK it is most likely caused by pressing the wrong button at the wrong time. Alternatively, there may be a bad contact at the connection between LCD screen and camera.
It is a posible issue with the hardware the LCD or the power connector of LCD to the body. Another thing there might be a short circuit inside.
You can perform this T/S:
1. remove all accesories connected including battery.
2. press the power button or switch to on for 1 minute to release all the electrical current inside.
3. turn on the camera check if it will work.
If the problem persist then it is a hardware issue and LCD needs to be replaced.
When you press the DISP button the screen will light up. But there is a power save function that will turn the screen off after 1 minute. This value can be changed if you press MENU, select the tools tab and then look under Power Saving. Check what this is currently set to, it may have been changed to be less than a minute. You can make the time period longer.
Please try initializing the Camera to resolve the issue.
First, please press the HOME button on the Camera to display the home screen on the LCD screen of the Camera. Then, select the "Settings" option and then select the "Main Settings" option on the Camera. Now, select the "Main Settings 1" and select the "Initialize" option and press the middle of the control button to initialize the Camera. Then, select "OK" and press the middle of the control button to initialize the Camera. If the issue still persists, it is required to service the Camera.
Turn off your LCD display screen. I know this is hard—who likes shoving their face against the camera to compose a shot through the little viewfinder? But the LCD screen single-handed-ly drains a lot of power.
Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
Set the power saver to the least amount of time. Power saver lets your digital camera “sleep” when not in use, but doesn’t shut it down entirely. To “wake up” your digital camera, simply click the shutter button.
Use your zoom as little as possible. The motor that moves the lens uses power. This also goes for repeatedly turning your digital camera on and off if it has an extend able lens.
Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
Use the flash only when necessary. Your digital camera’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
Don’t delete pictures from your digital camera unless necessary. This consumes power. Wait until you download the pictures to your computer before deleting.
This one’s basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most digital cameras use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkaline. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.
