On ebay, there is a store that sells the part you need. They even install it for you. All you have to do is buy the listing, send them a note that you'll be sending it to them to install and they will hold the part and send you the instructions on how to ship it to them. You pay the shipping. And the screen is $11.99. That it!
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Some cameras have a button to toggle the back light on and off. It is possible that the old screen damaged the back light drivers on the circuit board. It is also possible the new screen is defective. I have seen both scenarios.
Hi dear, you need to see the manual (http://www.retrevo.com/support/FujiFilm-S700-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/2488ag805/t/2/) Some camera only use viewfinder to shoot photo,The LCD is for setup and display photo only.Because it's off it will save a lot of battery power so that you can shoot more photos.Check it out in the manual.Have FUN!
This sound like a broken LCD screen. Does the EVF (Electronic View Finder) still work? If you can live without the LCD, your still in business! If not, replacement by a repair shop is the only other option. If you want to try it yourself, you might check ebay for broken S700's that have a good LCD screen but some other problem. Total disassembly manuals are available online through Google search. One site has every manual for any product you can think of, and if they don't have it, they will find it for you. Digital camera repair is NOT for the faint of heart. Cool nerves,steady hands, and no two year old's around are required. Tiny parts with even tinier electrical connections are the norm. The good thing is that the screen is nowhere near the lens assembly, so dirt ingestion shouldn't be a problem. An illuminated magnifier lamp would also be VERY handy.
The only thing you can do is take or send the camera to an AUTHORIZED service center for replacement of the LCD screen. If you can live with just using the viewfinder, like in the old days, the LCD being broken should not effect the camera operation. Set the selection to the EVF (electronic view finder) position and this will stop the LCD screen from coming on. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck. (BTW: I LOVE my Fuji S700)
No fix except to replace the screen. Not a job for the faint of heart. You need tiny tools to work on tiny components and even tinier electrical connections. The proper sequence of disassembly and reassembly is VERY important. Get a quote from a reputable CAMERA store (NOT Wal-Mart or Best Buy!) and weigh that cost against replacing the camera. Gently used and even new S700's are available on eBay for good prices since the camera is no longer in Fuji's line-up (not in current production). If you can live without the LCD display, just switch over to the EVF (electronic view finder) and if that still works, you are in business. If you truly like the S700, as I do mine, repair it or replace it. It's replacement model and most others in Fuji's line-up have external lens movement, while the S700 is all internal allowing the use of standard 46MM filters and lenses without an adapter tube. Most of the newer cameras (without going to a digital SLR) are all external lens movement and NO adapters are available for filters, etc.
