This camera has one of those rotating displays so you can see it from the front of the camera. The display was working fine, then just died. No light at all. I tried the flashlight test to see if it was just the backlight, but there's nothing visible. However, the camera seems to boot up, and if I connect an HDMI cable, I get video. So apparently the camera is still working ok except for the LCD display.
I found a couple disassembly videos on Youtube, and thought I would take it apart to see if perhaps a ribbon cable has come loose, or if the switch that tells the camera that the display door is open isn't working. But before undertaking that, I wanted to see if anyone here has a suggestion for a simpler solution. I guess the problem could also be in the pivot connections, but if that's the case there's nothing I could fix there.
