Replace cracked lcd in canon powershot A520

I am seeking instructions for replacing a cracked lcd in my camera, and save myself the $150 that canon wants to do this job. I have successfully, disassembled, repaired and reassembled laptop computers and camcorders which I own. Any ideas where I can find such instructions? Thanks.

Need to set date and time at each starting. have changed 1220 battery what could be the reason

It sounds like you or the camera is not saving the settings. Refer to your manual for a step-by-step setting of the time. You're probably just not hitting some "save" key.

Canun digital camera powershot A630 lcd screen blank

I also cracked my Canon Powershot A630 lcd screen by dropping the camera. I saw a suggestion to buy a new replacement lens and either have it professionally replaced or try it myself. I ended up doing the replacement myself following instructions I found online. Now it works. Total cost US $63.

I would not recommend trying the replacement yourself, however. There are a few very delicate plastic parts in there which I ended up damaging. Luckily the camera and lcd screen are working great now. But it is probably worth having a professional camera repair shop do the whole job or insert the screen you've purchased. Good luck!

Cracked lcd

Well, there is a Powershot A520 on eBay right now that has a good LCD screen but does not work. It would be a good deal since a new part may be fairly expensive. Item number: 160196261124. You will need a good cross point screwdriver and tweezers to make this repair

Replacement parts for canon powershot a520????

I have a "broken" A520 that needs a new LCD. I really don't want to spend another $90 to get it fixed so may be willing to sell it for parts. Let me know. I don't know about any guide for disassembly however.
