Does the LCD work if you press the "menu" button?
The camera can display various different levels of information on the rear LCD screen and you can use the "Info" button to cycle through all the various options that the camera can display (I think it's roughly 4 different options and you just keep pressing info and it cycles through all the options ... looping back to the first option when you get to the end.)
One of those options... is to display nothing at all. The screen will stay dark. But it should always come to life if you press the "menu" button (assuming the camera is actually on and not tethered to a computer). When I do astrophotography in a group, I don't want the light from my camera screen on... so I set it to the mode that turns off the display.
Tap "info" and see if the LCD switches on (and just tap it several more times until it displays what you want.)
It does something similar if you are reviewing an image. Normally it fills the frame with the image but you can press info several times and see the combined RGBL histogram, or you can display the histogram for each color channel independently, etc.
If the display does not work EVEN if you press the "menu" button, then something else is wrong. See if it isn't just the "info" button and let us know.

My 60d's LCD won't turn on. the shutter still works along with top lcd. If I remove lens the lcd starts working. Please help me!
Try resetting the camera. There might be something peculiar with the lens, so try another lens. Make sure to remove the lens cap. I suspect that it is as Tim suggested, that there is a setting that has turned off your display.

There are brightness and screen color settings in the camera. Resetting the camera should reset those.
