The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body or the LCD itself. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My HP Pavilion G6 laptop screen turns on and then goes blank (black)


When the screen turns on does it show anything or does it turn on and go to black?

If it goes to straight black it could be two things typically.
1. The LCD screen is having an issue. Connection cable / LCD screen itself.
2. The Graphics Card has gone out.

Dell laptop screen unreadable


Yes, it won't change anything because it's not a software problem. It has something to do between the connection of your LCD screen and your motherboard. Or your LCD backlight has a problem with it.


What you need to do is to open your computer and reset the connections inside. It should be the connection between your motherboard and the monitor.

I suggest you visit www.support.dell.com for more information on how to do that or if you want help then you can contact dell's tech support if you still have the phone support warranty.

I hope this helps!

Hey, I have a Sony Ericsson W580i, i dropped it on the floor the other day and now when i turn it on, its just a black screen, can i do anything to solve the problem? Thanks.


It's possible the lcd screen connection came loose. Try opening it up and re-attaching the lcd screen cable. There are tutorials on youtube that show you how to remove the lcd screen and re-install it.

Black screen


Assumed that LCD screen is black and what about Eye piece viewfinder? Does it show picture to you?
If LCD Screen is black, it means it has no back-light. check any button to turn back light on & off at LCD portion.
There can be an other reason of black LCD. a flexible cable which connects LCD and Camera circuits and it can be broken/ cracked/ out of order.

Black Screen


Can you shoot? battery might be low taking it to "save-power" mode. Try hitting "DISPLAY" to force the LCD screen to show.
