Hi - I must be missing something obvious, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn off the LCD on my brand-new F10. I thought that pushing the "disp" button should kill the display after a few presses, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Anyone know how to turn the screen off?

Chances are that the battery doesn't have enough charge. I would suggest charging it overnight to see if that helps. Sometimes products off the shelf have been sitting awhile, and the battery is just not charged at all. Also, with rechargeable batteries, they have to be recycled, that is, recharged about 4 times before they charge up to their maximum potential. If charging the battery good doesn't help, I would just get my money back, if you can. Good luck hope this helps.
Did you fix the previous problem? If so, was it a missing or loose screw?
As for your current problem, you may have accidentally pressed the LCD display on/off button (it manually turns off the LCD display to save battery life). Turn on your camera and press the DISP button once. It's located on the back of your camera in the lower left corner.
You can try updating the firmware if it is possible first.If this doesn't help then try removing the batteries off the camera
and allow the camera to reset for an hour and then put them back. If this doesn't help then You need to use 2500 or higher rechargeable batteries - as soon as you
switch to this type of battery, it will work fine!
Your camera requires four AA size batteries.There are several factors that contribute to battery life:
This is the best solution for enjoyment and cost savings. NiMH
batteries typically last longer per charge than the average alkaline
batteries. NiMH batteries are rechargeable batteries, so they can be
used several times and thereby reduce the expense of continually
purchasing new batteries. NiMH batteries are typically sold with a
power adapter for charging. The life of these batteries can often be
determined by the mAh rating, the higher the mAh rating on the battery,
the longer that they will last. NiMH batteries do not have the memory
effect associated with NiCd batteries, which means that these batteries
can be recharged at any time and at your convenience (you do not have
to wait for the batteries to completely drain between charges).
Energizer has introduced a new series of Lithium batteries that provide
optimum performance and long life for disposable AA size batteries.
Laboratory studies shows that Lithium batteries last more than three
times as long as standard Alkaline batteries. This means many more
hours of fun and satisfaction with your digital camera. These lithium
batteries are not rechargeable, they are long lasting.
Using the LCD display, downloading images, playback, zoom and flash all
require some battery power to operate and may decrease the number of
shots per set of batteries. Performance may also vary based on the
Alkaline batteries selected. To significantly increase battery life, be
sure to turn off the LCD when it is not in use. The LCD consumes the
most amount of battery power. The benefit of being able to use alkaline
batteries is that you can find then almost anywhere if needed.
If you are using manganese batteries, the typical battery life will be
about 2 - 5 shots. Then the camera will indicate that battery power is
low and may shut-down. To avoid this experience, use either Alkaline or
Optimum Solution: Use a set of NiMH batteries
for longer use and to reduce the expense of continually buying new
batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a spare set of NiMH
batteries for other devices that require AA size batteries on a regular
basis. Use AA Alkaline batteries when the NiMH batteries need to be
recharged and you want to continue enjoying the use of your camera.
Goodluck, Please don't forget to rate the solution as fixya..
I have the same problem but i figured out a pretty decent soloution. It's sort of a hassle, but it conserves your battery life dramatically. All you have to do is take out the battery (which is kinda fun if you ask me) and store it somewhere safe while not using the camera. You should even do it if you are only leaving it off for a short amount of time. i figured that the camera unintentionally drains your battery life even if off, but obviously cannot when it is out of the camera. i hope this helps you as it did me!
I have only had my 3100Z for about 3 months but I have found the battery life outstanding. I have the NI-MH batteries and haven't actually counted the number of pictures I take between chargings but it seems as if it is 200 or more. I also have many menu changes, view the photos in the camera and leave it on between shots. I also have sleep set for 30 seconds.
I have actually never run the batteries down but recharged them twice in anticipation of needing plenty of power when I planned to take a lot of pictures. I'm guessing that you might have some faulty batteries.
