I had this problem too and I discovered that there is a sort of switch in the display lid that malfunctions. It is probably there to switch off the display if you close the lid while the printer is on.

The solution is to open the lid just enough to reach the on/off switch and turn the printer on. If you now open the lid fully the display is up and running like you were used to.

    It is relatively tricky but the printer is OK after this operation.

First screen blank, now printer won't come on


May be coincidence.
for repairing display the solution is to change ribbon cable: go there

But probably you might have got solution before doing this.
Check supply block if you can (grey, on rear left back, after returning printer) May be necessary to buy repair manual on ebay ($2.95)

I cannot scan because display is a black screen. I can print though.


The flex cable for that display breaks internally and leaves you a blank display. Canon has a replacement cable for around $10.00. Easily repaired in a shop.

Printer screen is lit but blank


This worked for me:
1. Close the display lid as far as possible so you are just able to reach the power button.
2. Power off and back on.

Blank LCD display screen


You need to check firstly that the LCD connections are still connected correctly inside the printer and then you can enter service mode on the printer and run an LCD test. To open printer and run test you will need a service manual:
