Sounds like a defective LCD or backlight. Is this system still under warranty?

if you hold a light up to the display, can you see anything at all? if so, then it's the backlight (~$10). If there's absolutely nothing - just a single pitch black, then it could be as simple as the cable popped loose, it's a bad inverter (~$20), to a dead display (~$100). Here's a good troubleshooting site:
