Okay, there are a few possibilities and things to check out if you haven't already found a solution to this problem.\015\012
\015\012First, it sounds like you've turned off the display by hitting the button. Page 42 of the manual describes hitting the , which toggles the display between being off and on. So, try hitting that button and see if that fixes your problem.\015\012

\015\012One other thing to check out is the LCD Monitor Off/On setting, which is described on page 115 of the manual. If you're still having problems with your display after toggling the button then check this setting and make sure that it is on the [Shutter btn.] option.\015\012

\015\012Finally, it's possible that one of the custom functions is affecting the behavior of the display. To get to the custom functions just hit then use the arrow buttons to select [Custom Functions (C. Fn)] under the second to last menu item along the top, as shown in the next picture from page 152 of the manual.\015\012

\015\012
\015\012From there choose C.Fn-11 for "LCD display when power ON" and make sure it is set to 0: Display, which will turn the display on when the camera is turned on, instead of 1: Retain power OFF status, which will keep the display off when the camera is turned on.\015\012
\015\012Since it's been a while I imagine you may have already solved this issue, but if not, then I hope these troubleshooting tips will solve your problem.\015\012
\015\012Good luck and have fun. :)
