Most probably the backlight has malfunctioned. You will need to send it in for repair.

Shine lyrics by regine velasquez


There I was alone in the shadow
Couldn't find my way
Then you came in
And brought along the sunshine
Now you're here to stay

You make me shine, shine
Like the stars in the heavens
Shine, shine
You keep me shinning through
Shine, shine
With the light that you give in, it's true
I'm shinning on, all because of you

So watch me go
A light shines within me
People ask me why
And I just smile & tell them you're the reason
I've cast the darkness aside


Like a ray of light
Coming through the night
bright as the stars in the sky
See how I shine

Dark screen on R530, can see image with bight light?

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Display will not light up. It is completely black but if you shine a light at it you can barely see it

If you can see characters when shining a torch on the dark screen then the screen is OK it is the lamp or ballast that has failed. I would find an authorised repairer and get it repaired.
Hope that helps.

My phone seems to be working, but the LCD panel is dark. I really don't understand why the light went out.

Cells phones have a LCD screen the had a back light, When the back light goes bad 9 times out of ten you can take a flash light and shine it on the display and can see the image, if so you know you got a bad backlight

issue with these phnes as well is you gotta replace the lcd as the backlight comes with them most of the time.

I sure wish ya good luck with your phone and do hope this information did help.

Before you leave tho please do rate and leave some feedback on how well you where taken care of here at!

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Canon SD870IS LCD is very dark

Most likely the display backlight fuse is blown. You will have to give it to a local repair shop or Canon service center. They will give you the price.
