Question about Cameras
Two reason for the screen to be dark
1. If you can see 'shadow' images on the screen, this implys the backlight tube or the inverter circuit has blown.
2 If No images show up at all then this is a mainboard failure
This is assuming the batteries are ingood condition and the camera powers up..
