Re: only viotel picture - lens
If your camera still in warranty then replaced it .Because your lens can't make contact properly with image transferring chips. That's why all falls snaps comes violet. Watch the photo of a sample camera chip. The problem going on here.

First Try a different lens on the Camera to see if its the body or the lens, Most of the time its the lens, If its the lens then it has to be repaired by a repair shop, Cost to repair is $68.00, Body: Check in the menu settings under Display reset it there to the length of time you want it to go on or off.
The manual is a bit confusing. I do have a power shot, but is is a bit younger. My camera does have 2 On buttons. One to put it in shooting mode. And one to set it in display mode. If I press the display button (arrow right) the lens stays where it is and I only can see pictures I took. When I press the on off button the lens comes out.
I think you only have to switch the main dial to the camera logo (shooting Mode) and then press the Disp button, to shoot pictures and if you want to view pictures, you turn the dial to playback Mode (arrow to the right) and press the Disp button.
If it works, no fix, just knowledge about how the camera works. It is all in the manual.
This is a normal phoneme. The camera wants to show you where the picture is overblown. In these parts you can't see any details, because in JPG it will show it one colour. Most of the time this will be complete white.
When you are shooting in RAW (NEF in your Nikon) most of the time you still get detail, when you work in one of the RAW editors, like Photoshop, DxO and other picture edtors.
its actually probably the display. there is 3 different displays. 1. shows picture with icons 2. shows just the picture and 3. is a solid black screen. just hit the display button to cycle through until your desired display is present
I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).
The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.
If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.
So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.
It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.
I have seen this several time the lens cable can cause this issue it could also be the back light or the LCD I repair these all the time If you do not fill comfortable replacing the parts you can go to www.digitalcamrepair.com if you need further assistance.
