About a week ago, my LCD screen stopped functioning. The backlight still illuminates but the screen is just grey with some dark grey vertical striping. When I press the LiveView button and pan the camera the bars appear to move horizontally. I don't know if this has any bearing on the problem but the battery may have been changed while the camera was still turned on. I have seen a number of comments on other websites about the grey LCD problem. I have tried all the resets, battery and memory removal tricks that have been mentioned. A few posts mention bad connectors or a bad LCD but most seem to indicate that it means the display board is bad and has to be replaced. I scanned these forums but didn't see any mention of this problem. If I was sure it was the connector or LCD I'd have a try at replacing the LCD since replacement LCDs are readily available and inexpensive. Anyone had this problem or know if there is a way to diagnose what part has gone bad?
