    Oh thanks for a very quick answer!
    I do not have the camera with working lcd yet (am going have to soon, as ebay sells a lot).
    Can I try to check my camera, take it apart before I get the new camera, or should I wait?
    Can I do (see) this with glasses just?
    I have seen a tutorial with photos online, it was a Canon or Sony I think, are most of the cameras the same when coming to replace LCD´s?
    Your answer seems easier? LOL
    PS.sorry for my pure English (I am a Swedish girl)

your answer to this problem is easy. First take the batteries out of the camera, then open the camera ( screws should be in the back) the screen should just pop out of the cover and there is a ribbon cable that connects the screen to the circut board. Gently un-hook that ribbon where it plugs in to the board there might be a slid lock to hold the ribbon in place, it should unlock when you pull the cable out (memorize what position the ribbon is before unplugging). Now the fun part, do the same thing to the other camera, (carefully). To install the new screen, plug the ribbon back into the slot and it should be snug, if not there is a lock on it, gently push it back away from the ribbon ( a little finger pressure). Now, simply put it back together the same exact way you took it apart and don't forget the batteries. Have fun taking pictures...

    see if there is a compartment like the battery cover or a usb cover and look inside there should be screws inside, they like hiding the screws.

There is a fuse for the LCD backlight only - if it's blown, you should see something on the display if you look closely as there will be no backlight. If you need help locating the fuse, e-mail me at

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 Sharp LCD 26" TV shows most black and shadow colours as vivid blue, I have tried resetting the colour to factory reset but that didn't seem to help at all. It occurs on all channels and on 3...

the problem with LCD tvs are that they have back lamps that shine thru the LCD sceen. the job of the screen is to block the light of the different colors to make the picture. the problem is that the very thin screen can not block all the light. if the set has a back lamp setting turn down the back lamps and adjust the brightness control it should help a little. you my notice that the blacks and dark sceens look better when the room is fully lit and look much worse in a darken room.

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black

I tried all the solutions offered on the net and none worked except one. It simply said "hit the camera with the palm of your hand" (when it is on) and the screen will return. I thought, well I have nothing to lose and so I hit it on the side and sure enough the LCD is again working !!! Contacted Canon prior to this and they had no idea but suggested I send it in to be repaired at a cose of $163.50 Australian. Pleasant staff they have, but no help in solving what looks like a common problem of Canon cameras. I will have second thoughts purchasing Canon from here on in.
