If the 2.5'' LCD screen stays black all the time, but pictures are taken properly, then the problem is either the LCD screen, the backlight, or the LCD ribbon connector.
The only way to find out is disassembling the machine, accessing ribbon connector and checking contact, checking if LCD is working, then eventually replacing LCD display.
If the camera is less than one year old, then call HP to validate warranty. You can also order the replacement LCD from HP.See HP Parts Store

Eos 5D lcd screen stays black when power is turned on. It will show menu and review photos taken but otherwise remains black so it will not show what is in front of the lens.


This is not a problem: the LCD monitor cannot be used as viewfinder for shooting as with digital compact camera's or non-professional DSLR's.
This info can be found in the manual on p. 36.

When i open my camera to take a picture all i get is a black view. i cannot see anything on the display or through the view finder.


Does your camera also have an optical viewfinder? If so, chances are that you accidentally pressed the button that turns the screen off to save battery power. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. For your model camera, read the user manual to find out where this button is. On Canon cameras, it's usually a little button labeled DISP or DISPLAY. Just press it oonce to turn the screen back on again.
But if the above doesn't help, have you tried downloading photos taken when the screen is black? Are these photos also black? If so, chances are in this case that you are experiencing a stuck shutter. This is also very easy to remedy (see this).

Have a d8o take a picture does not show on back screen


If you wish to manually view all the photos you've taken, press the play button, it is located near the screen on the back with a triangle logo.

If you wish to automatically view photos after they've been taken, press the menu button, go to the sub menu with the pencil icon, and turn "Image review" to on.

If you wish to view the images on the back screen as you take them, this is not possible with the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

Screen went black


Think 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.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


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.
