Question about Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera
I think the issue with your camera could be that the ribbon cable that connects the LCD screen to the circuit board is loose somewhere. In order to fix this, you will have to carefully disassemble the camera. Inspect the ribbon cable to see if it is loose. You might have to reseat the cable. Be very careful not too damage the cable or the connector.

Well, you're not going to fix this without opening up the camera.
The LCD screen should have to wires going to it. One is for the light that illuminates the LCD. That one is obviously working. The other is for the LCD itself - it sounds like that isn't. Either the LCD needs replaced, or that cable is loose or damaged. I'd suggest opening up the camera, finding that cable (it will likely be a thinner cable than the other), and checking for loose connections, or an obvious break or sharp bend in the cable.
Unfortunately, even if you find the cable is damaged, I'm not sure you can get it replaced. If you're not confident you can take this apart and put it back together properly, I'd suggest either taking it to a repair shop, or just using it as is. I'd hate to see you damage it further. If you are confident, however, check that cable. If it's good, contact Samsung about a replacement LCD.

The display being blank can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.since you are able to seen the ICONS the LCD is good , Now if the picture taken are seen well the CCD is also OK and the fault seems to be a digital logic gate failure as there is no switching of the circuit .
This might require a probe and it might be a relative issue in the motherboard circuit or the processsor. Remove battery , press down all buttons to drain off voltage and see if the camera resets.
