Re: LCD is not working after connecting the camera to the...
Sounds like maybe the video out socket is stuck, damaged or dirty, without opening the camera you could try inserting the video jack a number of times and give it a gentle wiggle.
Also resetting the camera to default settings may help.. beyond that its in need of repair.

First of all, it is never advisable to copy a picture from the computer to a memory card or camera. Most of the time, it will corrupt the card and sometimes the camera.
Second, the procedure for connection to a tv needs to follow a detailed procedure. This is different for each tv and camera. For example, on my tv, my camera and tv need to be off, I make the connection, turn on the tv, set the tv menu to "photos", turn on the camera, and then follow the on-screen prompts from there. If I change that order, I have problems.
I took a hammer to the shutter - now it opens! Actually, I tried the suggestion and it did not correct the problem. I guess I will have to get a new camera. Very disappointed as this camera is only four years old and well cared for.
hi...ensure that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model..... If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. Perform a reset procedure on the camera....
No solution for your first problem but it's normal that you cannot view your photo on the LCD screen before actually taking it. Due to the way a reflex camera is built, you can't have a live view on your LCD. The Fuji S3 Pro has this type of preview as also most recent camera (Nikon D300, Canon 40D...).
Had the same issue with my wifes camera. Stripes going accross the screen. I figured that there might be a loose connection. I removed the batterys and three small screws (one is under the memory stick). Then I GENTLY removed the back, starting above the battery compartment. With the back exposed, I put the batterys back in and gently started playing with the screen connections. I got the screen working after playing with the lower, larger conection, on the bottom. Figured I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps you out.
If the color LCD is not illuminated when the camera power is turned on, check the following:
* The camera may be in the wrong mode. Run this check to test the LCD:
1. Make sure the camera power is on (the lens cover should be open).
2. Press the Review button (top left) on the back of the camera.
The LCD will display the last photo taken. To exit the Play mode, turn the camera power off.
* The camera may be connected to a TV. Disconnect the camera from the TV and try the LCD again.
* The batteries may be weak. Replace the batteries or use the AC adapter. To save battery power, use the optical viewfinder when composing photos.
