K10D Rear LCD Problem

Hi All,
I was shooting the other day and only stopped when the battery died on me. Upon reaching home, I replaced the battery but my rear lcd won't work. Though I can take pictures, I can't review it like before. Anyone of you guys experienced the same thing? Any troubleshooting techniques I could try before sending for repair?

Thanks!

If you are talking about the instant review, make sure you have that mode turned on. You can test the LCD by pressing the [>] button as well.

Bummer. I would try fully charged batteries next. Make sure you take the battery out of the camera and leave it out overnight. This does a major reset of the internal system. Charge up the batteries and try again. If it does not go, I am out of ideas.

What about taking the sd card out and then powering it up, turning it off, reinserting the card and then powering up again?
