Re: DX6440 LCD screen is Black

As I suspected, the flexible circuit board which connects the fluorescent back light to the power source was severed. Although it didn't appear broken at first, the LCD came on as I poked the flex board. I removed a small amount of insulation and reconnected the two copper leads. Problem solved.
The flex board I speak of is an amber colored ribbon; it can withstand high temperatures and is quite durable. There are two copper leads embedded in the ribbon. One end of the ribbon is sealed within the LCD, the other end terminates in a locking surface mount connector. You can unlock the connector by pulling back on the little brown latch. If you have a severed flex board, be extremely careful in repairing the connection. Once you begin removing the amber coating, it becomes fragile.

I had this problem when turning the camera to take vertical shots. Turns out my polarized sunglasses obscured the image when shooting vertical. Solution: take off my sunglasses.

The view screen is black and you can't see what you're taking the pic. Battery is ok

If camera shows Menu item or any on-screen display in LCD but no live view to take picture then it can be either aperture problem or defective ccd imager.
And if you do not see any display icon in LCD then of course LCD section is bad or LCD back light is Off for some reason. Try to see faint image in LCD if it is totally blank by pointing good amount of light with flash light or some thing.

LCD monitor


Sounds like your backlight may be out, unless you're still able to see a faint image when the LCD is "black"...?

If you can still see a faint image of what your camera is pointed at, I would assume your LCD is bad. In which case you could purchase a new one on for ~$60 or have them do it for you for ~$85.

LCD is black

you can see images clearly? but no Menu items show is that what you mean? This would indicate a firmware malfunction. If you see nothing at all on the screen but only 'ghost' images then the back light has blown. Try first of all with the camera on tapping gently at the base of the casing in the region of the screen- this is where the connectors to the main board are. Contact The Minolta support team. If you are getting nowhere - I suggest the next camera - repairs are not usually an economic option if at all.
