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.
