Canon EOS 5D 12.8mp Camera Menu LCD Not Coming On

Hello,

Just picked up a Canon EOS 5D 12.8mp camera in excellent cosmetic condition. Camera powers up, shutter fires and all else works. The LCD screen is blank, dead. Can't figure this one out. Hoping someone might have an idea. The settings appear on the upper LCD window, camera takes photos that I can see when I download on my computer. But how do I get the rear LCD to turn on so I can see all of the menu and options? I took out both batteries, CF card and pressed the info button and every other button. Nothing! Anyone have other ideas?
Looking forward to your responses,
Mike

Does the HDMI out work?

Did you cycle the Info button?  It is possible for the LCD screen to fail and the rest of the camera to work. I don't think Canon services the 5D any longer.

“He’s dead, Jim.”  Let’s hope the good doctor is wrong.  If he is correct, that might be why the used camera had such an attractive price.  I will leave it up to you on whether or not to return it.
