If you have used any kinda abresive cleaning product on your LCD screen is is most likely finished and needs to be replaced or it is faulty from the beggining. You must go for and exchange or a repair replacement of the LCD..

When I turn on my camera the LCD screen is balck and I cant see anything thruough the lens. It does take pics because when I upload the disck Ic an see the new pics

Double check if the viewfinder is operable (not the LDC but the little thing you look through with one eye above it). Try pressing the display button to flip through the different modes as you're looking through the viewfinder. If the viewfinder does work (and the LCD screen doesn't come on as you're scrolling through the modes) then it is most likely dead (broken). If the viewfinder works, you're can still use the camera otherwise it's probably time to get a new one.

Lines across the LCD screen

Two things can cause lines across the LCD either horizontal or vertically. The first (and most likely) is a small crack in the display wafer. LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. They are very fragile and can be easily damaged if dropped. I broke one in my pants pocket.

The second would be if a pin on the ribbon cable (to the LDC wafer) was not making good contact. If you disassemble the camera it is possible to clean the contacts using contact cleaner (or alcohol). Only attempt this is you are willing to replace the camera if you don’t put it back together properly.

Camera repair

Time for a new Camera. It is about 150.00 to replace the LCD. it is cheaper to replace it unless you can just use the viewfinder alone!!
