My cameras LCD screen was all white, sometimes horizontal lines would appear..thats still took pictures but i could only see them on the computer. if you take it apart and cleaning it doesnt work, a friend found a foam like piece that had fallen from somewhere in the camera and was making a wire short out. after he removed it and put the camera back together it worked fine.

Sounds like a connection from a ribbon cable or connector that connects the LCD to the curcuitry. Best this is twist or tap on side of camera to see if it changes and if it does and you feel comfortable taking apart tiny electronics lke this Go for it clean the connector(s) running from the LCD BUT I warn you if your not expereanced to do this I would contact the manufacturer as most companys have flat rates on most repairs.

Since this camera is fifteen years old, and is long discontinued, it is unlikely that spares will be available for it. The camera shop gave you the most cost effective advice.

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic

It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!

Broken screen

First if you have a broke LCD " Cracked" than ok its bad.
but if the back-light is not working and you cannot see a image easily it most likely is something else.
  1. remove the case screws
  2. remove both sides of the case
  3. on the lens side their is a shinny black piece of tape VERY carefully remove it
  4. release the ribbon cables
  5. take off the battery door
  6. de-solider the red and black wires closes to the battery door REMEMBER how they go
  7. turn the camera over
  8. on the right hand side there it you control board or cable
  9. VERY VERY carefully pry up the control board it can rip very easily
  10. now you can remove your LCD you might have to pry it up CAREFULLY because it might be taped down.
Hope this helps It is not that easy to repair digital cameras if you feel unsure about the repair leave it to the experts it would only cost you around 85.00 + Shipping to have the camera fixed. I repair these all the time and Know it is not that easy to fix.

Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).
