LCD screen on Nikon D750 is dead

3 months 1 week ago #734302 by Kelly Lambert
OK, my Saturday isn't starting off as I would like.  The LCD screen on the back of my camera (D750) will not come on.  I'm able to view things through the viewfinder, take photos, but  nothing is working to get the LCD screen to come on.  

Has this happened and any suggestions? I've pressed the live view button, but that isn't working.  

Thank you for any help you may be able to provide!

Send it into canon services or upgrade to a used d800 for cheap.

You can also reset camera’s defaults in the menu to see if the software is glitching out.

Sorry, the info I posted here were problems with the D700 and it seemed to be a known issue.... Not the d750. Thought it appears to happen sometimes with the 750 as well but not very often.

This is a known problem. One thing I don't like about Nikon is it is not make in Japan. Quality suffers but it generally is less expensive. I had a D100 go black on me. Sent it back to Nikon they fixed it. I sold it. Then the same thing happened to the buyer 5 years later ( I knew her).
Here is your problem. Maybe Nikon will repair it for free. If not, I would toss it and buy a used one.


I switched to Canon, They have a much better service record and they are made in Japan.

Are you CPS or NPS? It helped a lot with turn around.

It’s good to have. Btw both canon and nikon make their cams in japan, and other locations.

You would be wrong about that. Nikon has closed most of their plants in Japan and outsource to Thialand. Canon does not do this for their pro level gear.

Canon currently makes 64-65% of its cameras in Japan, and the new plant will raise the figure to around 70% Mitari indicated, adding that the remaining 30% are entry-level models.

So it is my understanding they were doing this for quite some time. By 2020 all the cameras were no longer made in Japan. Only the d6 was left being made in Japan and they announced in 2020 that by the end of 2021 even the D6 would be built out of country. But I don't keep up on that stuff really. I watch youtube vids and people who keep up to date on that stuff put it on youtube and I see it. While I think Nikon is not bad quality, but there is no doubt because of the Japanese culture and attention to meticulous detail, Japanese built products are superior to there counterparts in other countries.

I'm old enough to remember when anything "made in Japan" was considered junk. As they started improving the quality of goods, the prices rose. Things made in other parts of SE Asia are still made to Nikon's specs, so to me, the quality issue is a moot point...

Tell that to all the people who have had black screens on the nikon cameras. Including my old D100. Toyotas made in the US are made to Toyota Japan specs but I would rather have a toyota built in Japan. (although I do not own any Japanese vehicles only dirt and street motorcycles.
