Prolly not the kids' fault. Computers this age frequently have problems with the backlight or inverter.
Assuming the screen was bright and crisp (not distorted) before it went out, and it's not an intermittent problem (the screen's stayed dead), it's more likely the backlight than the inverter.

You may be able to fix this yourself, but it's difficult. The instructions here:
Are very similar to taking apart a 3000-s353 screen (trust me, I've done it - actually, I'm typing this on an s353 that I had to replace the fl inverter in).

Take it to the purchasing party and get a refund or a repair if you just bought it. If it has a warranty by all means get it back to get it repaired. If you bought it from a private party always turn it on before you take it to see if it works first. Also you may want to try restarting and waiting a bit to pick up the screen sometimes they are really slow starters depending on what is has loading at the startup. I feel for you friend. John

Display screen no longer works while taking pictures

Sounds like they accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. This manually turns the screen 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 with the camera turned on.

TV was playing, then the screen turned black.

If the screen is black and you have sound then lightly press and shine a strong flashlight against the screen. If you see an image around the edge of the flashlight, an image is being 'displayed'. The problem is probably in the Inverter/CCFT or the power going to the Inverter.

When i turn my atari 2600 on no games play?

The Atari 2600 was finicky even at the time (early 1980s). Just unplug it completely. Plug back in and power back on. Use the reset switch if need be. Good luck and have fun!

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.
