I lost the LCD on my 5d Mark Ii. No menu, info, photos... nothing is displayed. Any suggestions?

Look up how to turn LCD off and on for your camera. See if perhaps it is simply turned off before going further.

There is a "Disp" button.  Did you press it?Smiley Frustrated

No, OK, now reset the camera by removing all batteries.  There are two not just the one big main battery.  You need to leave it over night to completely be sure it is completely drained of all memory.  You need to reset the date/time when you install "new" fully charged batteries.  <------very important do not skip this Smiley Surprised

 

If nothing still does not work, send the camera to Canon service for repair. Smiley Sad

It looks like this is a repair issue. I cannot turn the LCD off and on because the button doesn't work. The main battery is now running down after taking only 10 pictures.

Do you have access to another (properly functioning) main battery? If it can't hold more than that tiny bit of a charge, maybe it simply doesn't have enough juice to run the LCD screen.
