I have a 3 yrs old 720sw and has seen some action. Yesterday, at the beach, the lcd screen stopped working. I can still point and shoot but I have to download pics to laptop to view (kinda like the olden days of 35mm, waiting for photos to process). Is there a simple way to reset/test if the LCD or is it time for a newer model?

From your description, you may either have a bad cable to the LCD on your laptop or the LCD screen itself is going bad. I would guess a repair shop may charge $100-200 for the parts and labor, but you'll have to check your local area for price estimates.
Since your computer is nearly 3 years old, you may want to consider purchasing a new computer, especially since they start at $300-500 brand new.
Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.
The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.
Hope this helps.

This tv problems it is alway the board that call the T-CON decodering board it is dying.This T-CON decodering board sit in the middle at the bottom of the tv LCD screen panel.This T-CON decodering board decodes all the tv picture dots pixels before it go into the tv LCD screen panel itself.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish T-CON decodering board for the replacement.
You don't. From what i can tell, your screen is little more than expensive garbage at this point; your LCD is done. To verify this, plug the screen into a different computer. If your screen does the same thing, throw it out. But if you REALLY want it fixed instead of buying a new one, try replacing the LCD.
By blank, do you mean a white screen? If you have a white screen and sound, then the LCD panel has failed, either the internal panel or the T-Con board driving it. Only an expect can tell you if it can be fixed. Lots of these sets die within 3 yrs. The cheap brands faster than the better brands.
The problem is that the panel has failed. Apparently this is a common problem with LCD TV's between 18 mths and 3 yrs old. If it survives over 3 yrs it is likely to last for a few years longer. The cost of replacing the panel is more than a replacement TV!
There should be a menu button on the camera. if there is, go into the settings and turn the LCD Screen back on. (Actually if you press the menu button on the camera, you should see the menu on the LCD screen.) There is an option to turn off the screen to save battery life.
the flex wire of the lcd monitor is already cut ...go the service center for replacement of the flex wire...or to the other service center for fixing the flex wire...it is to difficult to fix the wire if you are not a technician cause that wire is like a strand of hair...
