My nikon coolpix AW100 has a black screen when it turns on It has only been used 3 times in the water and has now started doing this video function works fine and the screen turns on for that but on camera mode or playback just plain black !! What do I need to do???!!!!????!!!?!?!?!?

Need a faster answer?
I have found a simple permanent solution to this problem. The problem seems to be to do with the camera detecting when the mini usb plug is inserted. When you put the plug in the screen comes back to life. Therefore insert a small piece of twisted wire into the socket such as a paper clip cut to a small length so you can leave it there and close the lid. I was ready to throw this camera away but this fixed it.
