HI there i like to confirm you that the LCD screen is working. Try to push DISP button after turn on the camera for photography. I mean when you not able to view display in the screen then press DISP button. If you not able to view the screen after press those button then its a problem of the camera CCD(the light sensitive chip that produces the image)or the connection to it. So the solution is repair the CCD from the Olympus service center.
