Screen is Black, light I'm in a dark black room black
I turn it on, and the screen is black. Not black like it's broken and not working, but black like I'm in a completely black room, and everything is black. When I click on the printer button near the bottom, it shows me 4 photographs, all pretty in color and all, but once I try to take a picture, everything is black. I've tried reseting the camera, which obviously didn't work, or those 4 pictures wouldn't be on the camera when I click on the printer. Help!! I bought this for my daughter for her birthday, she's used it twice and now won't work.

If its LCD get the room very very dark and turn on--with a flashlight near the screen look closely at the screen to see if you see a very faint image of the picture or not---Most LCD flatscreen's (not Plasma) use what is called a back light to light the screen--light source.
If a faint picture can be seen that way the light is not on.
Since its a LCD take a flashlight and have the room as dark as possible and with the light look to see if a very very faint image of the picture can be seen or not---many of these sets use a "back light" for the brightness and if that's not on.......
does the light stay or blinking and how about the screen display totally black or a white screen. you can see in a dark room if their is a white screen. if totally black screen then with sound the cause is could be bad inverter board or screen back light. if a white screen it was the t-con board not working good.
This sounds like the back-lights have quit working. This is made up with
an inverter (ballast) and fluorescent lamps. I want you to try
something. In a very dark room turn the tv on and watch what happens to
the screen. There is three things that can happen. first the screen will
stay completely black. This means the inverter never fired, and this is
usually a failed inverter, but sometimes the power supply may fail.
there is also a rare time the main module never outputted the signal to
activate the inverter, but this is rare because you can hear the audio.
So obviously the main is working at least 90%. The second thing that can
happen is the screen will light for a split second then go black. This
usually means that you have a bad lamp. These lamps are physically
locate inside the LCD panel, and the replacement cost exceeds the price
of a new unit. You may even see a dark area in the screen. The slight
glow will not be uniformly lit through out the screen. Finally the last
thing you may see is the screen has a slight glow. This means the
back-lights work, but the video portion isn't showing. This usually
means the driver board (T-con) has failed. This is probably not
available separately, so you must replace the panel to fix it. And like
before, the replacement cost exceeds the price of a new unit. One more
thing to do when the set is on and in the very dark room if the screen
is black, point a very intense flashlight into the screen. Put the
flashlight against the lcd screen and see that you have video moving
around the glow of the flashlight.
Sounds like the back light on the screen isn't working properly which will need to be replaced if this is the case. Check for a very dark image on the screen when it is booting up in a well lit room, if you can see the computer start up then it is the back light.
