Re: LCD goes blank whether camera is on or off
Hey sirath, I know you just got the camera serviced, but from how you describe the issue I would say there is a problem with the connection of the LCD to the camera (i.e. a loose wire). I am assuming that the camera will still take a picture, but you just can't see anything on the LCD screen. If this is the case I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, and I would bring it back to whomever worked on the camera before because it is possible that the previous repair caused the problem and if that is the case this repair would most likely be free. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

The T70 uses two AA batteries. They don't have to be lithiums; alkalines and rechargeable NiCd/NiMHs will work just as well. The batteries go inside the grip on the right side of the camera, under the lid on the bottom. Push the latch toward the center of the camera and the lid will flip up. Follow the illustrated instructions beginning on page 8 of the manual.
According to the pictures I see in the T70 manual, there is no sleeve required. It shows two AA batteries in the battery compartment, but no sleeve. Try just placing the batteries (properly oriented) into the well and closing the cover, and see if the camera powers on OK. You should be fine using it that way.
I've read that some of the "Handymen" out there have taken the faceplate off the T70 and put LocTite on the screws to hold them in place. OMG--not for me. Look on the web for a Canon authorized service center. I only paid $15 for my secondhand T70. I just leave the 500mm bazooka lens off it. A modest lens up to 135mm should be okay. Good luck.
To get your camera back in to AE mode. Press the Mode button, then press either the up or down buttons on top right side of the camera. Look at the little LCD screen. You and to see the word PROGRAM on the screen.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and thanks for coming to FixYa.
I also have t-70 that I bought when they were released and I worry about the same thing. Everything that I have been able to find on the internet is that Canon no longer makes replacements and no third party has come forward with one. I went on Ebay and found another t-70 that is in excellent condition for $50.00 to use as a parts donor in case something happens to my original. The only bad thing is that I have been using that one also, I keep that one loaded with B+W and the original loaded with color.
It sounds like the motor is locked up. The gears under the bottom of the camera may have gotten sluggish from dried out lubrication. You can take the bottom off to see if the gears are able to turn freely or check with a local camera repair shop.
