Broken lcd monitor

Hi. I accidently sat on my panasonic lumix fx8 digital amera and have cracked and broken the lcd monitor. The camera still works; am able to take photos and video but obviously I have to guess what i am aiming at and if it is in focus. The advice I have recieved is to buy a new camera but I am happy with the FX8's performance and spec. Is there any way to replace the monitor, and if so how, from whom or by whom, and what is the cost of the part. I live in Ireland. Thanks, Eugene

Re: broken lcd monitor

If you need some good used parts for your FX8 you may want to contact a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Panasonic Cameras at reasonable prices. I think his email is

Re: broken lcd monitor

The Fx's have a common problem of internally cracking(even when you don't actually sit on them ;] ) which pana still won't recognize, so I've seen a few posts that sum up the following - nothing qouted less 200 $ by panasonic(repair), and the FX9 NEW today sells for 199$. You could try and get a used FX8 from ebay thats all dead but the screen, but better check around first to see if you can find anyone to do the replacement for you. A talented all around computer tech, especially one thats good with laptops might get lucky with it. It is a nice camera, I hope you work it out.

Panasonic DMC FX8 LCD screen fault

I have the same problem. I opened the camera and its the way it was assembled, the 4 wire flat ribbon cable that connects to the backlite screen not the actual LCD screen is broken where it was folded 90 degree and taped down. It must of got dry and just cracked right on the bend. So we need a new backlite screen not the LCD. Where do we get it? Does it come with the LCD???
