Question about Canon PowerShot G5 Digital Camera
The LCD monitor will only come on when the monitor is in certain positions.
I took mine apart and found one of the flexible-connector solder joints had broken. I remelted the existing solder with a 15-watt pencil soldering iron (and a magnifier) and that fixed by backlight problem.

Very simple fix. Open the covering on the lcd screen and also remove covering that is between the camera and screen. There is a wire that goes from the lcd screen to the camera. It came out from all the twisting of screen when opening and closing. Carefully put that back in. Google keywords like "lcd g5 fix" etc. for more detailed description.
