    have had this camera for two years. suddenly the LCD display will not work, although it did actually take photos, I found out when I plugged it to my computer to see if I had accidentally "un-installed" it. but when it took the pictures it did it without the "noise" the camera usually makes when taking a picture. I am currently looking for the original software to try and re-install it anyway......

It is best to get it replaced under warranty. This is most likely a CCD issue or connector ribbon fault. I would not advise opening the camera even if the warranty had run out.

However, since it is under warranty, better get it replaced.

PS Dont forget a fixya rating!

I suggest you reinstall the windows 7 again. The installation was interrupted because the battery ran out of power, the result was a corrupted and incomplete installation of windows. And that is the main reason why you are just getting a blank screen.

Take it back to the store where you bought it from and ask them what is going on with it. It sounds like to me the screen savers is kicking in too soon.

Monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
