Hello, after owning my camera for 4 years, I dropped my camera and the screen went black. On and off switch works and the camera still makes shutter noises. I tried pressing the fn5 button thinking it was on the view finder but it did not work. Any help? thanks

Hi. I, having the same issue. LCD and View finder only show black screen. Camera does work and makes shutter noise (and saves pictures on SD kard) Did you solve your Problem?

Paul Weyand -

Wonderful. I actually need to change the LCD display control main circuit board. Is that the piece of circuity stuck at the back of the LCD?

Thanks!
