How to replace LCD Screen on a Nikon L18 Coolpix camera

Here is a Quick tutorial on replacing the LCD screen on a Nikon L18 Coolpix camera. You will need a few small tools and a replacement screen, of course, for this fix.
#0 Philips head screwdriver
1.4 mm Standard screwdriver
Plastic knife
1. Start by taking the batteries out of the camera and closing the battery compartment.
2. Remove 6 Philips screws, 3 from the bottom, 1 from each side, and 1 under the AV out flap.
3. Open the battery compartment and gently pry the AV out side of the camera apart. It should snap apart along the seam in the middle. Use your standard screwdriver to pry the back cover off by working it along the seam. If you are worried about scratching the finish you could use the plastic knife once you have it started.
4. Remove the back cover exposing the screen. The screen sits in a metal chassis that holds it in place. Lift the screen from the AV out side of the camera. Under the screen is a ribbon that connects it to the camera. Disconnect the ribbon and remove the old screen.
5. Install the new screen by connecting the ribbon and seating it in its chassis. You can test the camera by installing the batteries and pushing power to see if it functions.
6. Place back cover carefully back over the screen before pressing it in place.
7. Screw it back together and start taking pictures again.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fixya

Is it worth fixing a broken LCD Screen on a Nikon Coolpix L18

That's up to you, of course. You can get a new screen here, but the cost is about the same as a used L18, and not that much less than a new L22 or L24. If it was me, I'd replace the L18 instead of repairing it.

broken nikon coolpix L18 camera screen

I just spent a whopping 10 minutes removing 6 small screws. I had to wrestle it a littl to seperate the case, but once open the screen lifts out. Attached to a ribbon cord. Carefully unlock the cord, replace LCD, reassemble. I'm seeing about $55 bucks for this screen. You can do it yourself.....Good luck.
