Default Olympus D-380 - LCD screen is blank

Hi -- I just picked up an Olympus D380 camera (yard sale). I have one that I use regularly, so I thought I was familiar with how it works.

The "new" camera powers up, flashes, takes photos (I see a quick image of what I just snapped), but when I go to look at the LCD screen - nothing, it's blank.

So I can't see the photos I just took ... and I can't call up the menus to set up the camera.

Is the camera "broke"? Is the LCD screen broke? Or am I doing something wrong? Thank you.

Default It's fixed now!

After I posted this question I looked online to see if I could find any other help for "LCD screen is blank". There were lots of technical things online, BUT the one reply did the trick.

"...hold the camera firmly in your left hand - take the knuckles of your right hand and rap FIRMLY on the camera logo on the front..." Darn if it didn't fix it!!

I guess the LCD was "loose".

That is good news. Glad you got it working, and thanks for sharing that tip with the rest of us.
