It seems as if the display on the LCD screen is off but you can still hear sound as if you were searching through the menus.

Has the camera been dropped? If the camera appears to work properly and you can download the pictures to a PC ok, then it sounds like your LCD display has failed.

I have replaced several of these screens on Kodak cameras. If the camera is under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired free of charge, provided there is no evidence of abuse.

You can order the screen directly from the parts department of the manufacture and attempt to replace it yourself but I would only suggest doing that if you feel confident in doing so.

I wrote an article on how to replace a damged LCD screen.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Your screen may not be broken, but perhaps just switched on to display through the eye hole.
That happens to mine sometimes.
Try pressing the Display button once or twice
and see if that does anything.

Hi Sudhakar,
Since you are getting sound, your main board seems to be working. Please check and tighten the flat ribbon( LVDS) from main board to LCD panel. Good luck.

My nokia 6111 screen goes blank


It is not a common problem. It seems that either the connection to the LCD is broken somewhere, or the LCD is going or the display IC has gone. It it is the last (display IC) then the phone has to be thrown away as even Nokia thinks it beyond economic repairs. Earlier two can be rectified by Nokia Care.

Swicthed on tv and its a blank screen..now it wont switch off.


Can you see the menus on the screen?
Can you hear audio (sound)?
If you can hear sound but no menu we need to check the backlight.
Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, look very closely at the screen.
Do you see a video image?

Let me know what happens, I can assist further.

Tv tuner card is not supporting with lcd monior


I think that would be the other way around. You need to replace it with a card that supports LCD monitor.

Blank Screen


Hi,

If you can hear your windows loading but no display, try plug-in an external Monitory on your Laptop. If you can see the display on the screen with this monitor then maybe your LCD or Inverter is broken, or try turning on/off the switch for External Monitor and LCD Display on your keyboard. Usually by holding the "FN" key on your keyboard and look for the LCD/VGA icon on your keys then press it.
