Why is the screen not coming on my Clarion vz401 Clarion but I have sound and everything else works

If you have a blank screen while listening to an audio source (Radio, CD, USB, etc.) the interconnecting ribbon cable that goes from the system board to the display module could be damaged/cracked and needs to be replaced.

Digital Camera: Canon PowerShot S410. Display screen is blank, although can see through eye hole. Pictures come out blank as well! Lens zoom-in/out works fine.

Its CCD imager problem in your Canon S410 camera. Canon will repair it Free Of Cost. See Canon Advisory details for this scheme.

LCD Display Blank

I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Display zooms and blanks

Sounds like it has a CRT and the EHT is collapsing. Maybe a dry joint around the timebase output transformer.

LCD Screen Black/Blank. ? ? ?

Perhaps you have quick view turned off in the setup menus. There's no way the CCD is the problem as the camera takes pictures.

When using the zoom button the cam stops working

This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty
