Camera has been sitting up for approximately 9 months in dry air conditioned and heated home. When turned monitor is black with no mage. All other functions appear to work. Can review previous photos on view finder and monitor; flash fires and blank photo is recorded. Appears that shutter is stuck and gentle tapping of case has no effect. Is there a DIY solution?

try this trick:
take a torch light and put it at approximately 30 degrees from your screen when the camera is running... can you se a bit off images ? if yes, your LCD back light is dead or the control chip is dead, or the ribbon cable is broken or just mooved...
I think there is a problem in Monitor's Power Supply unit which integrated in the base board of Monitor. If u expertise with the service then carry on. else Pl contact a Local Service professional to solve the problem
Your Monitor has a heat sink issue. A capacitor in the monitor is at fault and when it heats it tells the monitor to turn off the display to save the display from damage....Problem Cost to repair will supercede the cost to replace it...Wal-mart 15" monitor 119bucks --17" monitor 129...same at staples office supply (Poof) problem solved.
It may be the back plane lamps, and or the back plane power supply that is in a failing condition. If in your model they are changeable, they should be changed together.
You can verify this by turning on the monitor, feeding it with a known working source, and shine a flashlight in to the screen at an offset angle to your view. If you can see some image in the screen, then you know that the monitor itself is functioning, and the problem is back plane lumination.
My viewing screen is black. I had successfully taken a picture, viewed it, and turned the camera off. When I turned it back on about 30 seconds later, the viewing sceen was black. I can 'take' a picure, but it comes out black. Help!
