Waddizzle, I changed the LCD off/on btn as you suggested (even with black screen), but doesn't work. I know that I really did it because now I just have to press halfway the shutter button and the display turn off. So now I will try to see the menu using a hdmi cable connected to a monitor (for now I just have the USB cable and the EOS Utility - that is not so helpful as I thought) to try the other ways you said.
Kvbarkley, I tried to clean the USB and HDMI connections, but did not worked.

Did you even try? What did they say? If your camera is broken, none of these "shots in the dark", suggestions is going to work. You need Canon Support.

I got Canon 6D with black screen. I ordered new lcd but no luck. I try to update firmware and screeen work fine. After that same black screen.
Remove back and did cleaning again of all connection but same problem, black screen.
Bought Mini HDMI cable and insert it and what I see, Screen back on and work like charm.
So after all my effort to remove LCD and cleaning, there is very simple solution for black screen try HDMI cable and see what will happened.
Mine work and like to share with community so some one resolve problem too.

I just tried to use my camera and the same thing happened to me, so I looked on here and didn't find the most useful answers. I noticed that my camera was left on after I switched my images over to my computer the other day. So I resulted back to what I would do to the tv if it didn't work. All I had to do to get my computer to work was turn it all the way off and wait ten seconds after the sensor cleaning screen went away and then I turned it back on and everything worked and my screen showed everything again! Hope this helped you!

I have the same issue.
I tried many suggestions herein but it didn't work.
What I did hopefully it works for you is I take off the lens, then shoot it several times to see what appeared in the display but there was a shadow square background of the mirror.
I cautiously push upward the mirror inside the camera then shoot and did it for 3 times. Then I put back the lens and PTL the camera is now working.
I hope this would work in your camera. Blessings.
