Question about Olympus Camedia E-20N Digital Camera
My camera has 5.0 megapixels. I was photographing horizontally and then vertically and as I shifted my hands I pressed a button somewhere on the left hand side of the camera and the screen went totally black. I cant get any thing thru the lens or viewfinder any more- it has gone completely black and I have tried everything-

This has happened due to failure of lcd controller or due to a flex cable misalignment. When your camera was dropped, the cable connecting the lcd with the main board might came off and needs to be reconnected back. However, if you want to be sure its the flex cable and not any lense issue, you'll need to connect your camera with the computer and check whether all pictures you clicked after the camera gone bad are fine?
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
