Hi

Its hard to say without seeing the camera if you can clean it or not...

If there is water exposure to the LCD and it has 'cloudy' spots on it now, the damage is most likely to your backlight, not the LCD, and the only solution is to replace the backlight.

If you have a window over your LCD and there are spots on the inside of it, you can take apart the camera case and clean off the inside of the window fairly easily... if you are skilled with a screwdriver etc. that is.

It's also possible that there is damage to the LCD which you might be able to clean off if you take apart the camera, but as I said without seeing it myself all I can do is guess.

Hopefully this helps, feel free to contact me for more help if needed.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com (an affordable digital camera repair business)

Horizontal lines have appeared on the screen what has caused this and can I get rid of the lines.


The LCD in the viewfinder likely has connection problems or broken circuits. Did you drop it recently? Was it subject to extreme temperature etc recently? You may find the lines shift around or even go away for some time. That would imply bad connections. If your technical enough to disassemble it, there is often a rubberised connector use between the LCD and circuit board that can be cleaned. It's delicate work tho.

Screen does not work, stays black


Water and LCD screens don't mix. I'd say the screen itself is shot, and will need to be replaced. However, I cannot find anyone selling these parts. Your best bet may be to watch for a broken one on eBay - so long as it's not the LCD that's broken, and buy it for parts.

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

Black lines on my camera screen. how do i get ride of them/ will they apear on my printed pictures?


black lines come only when the lcd is damaged due to dropping or jerking. You will have to change the lcd if you wan't to get rid of them. No those won't appear in the printed pictures.

My camera got drop in the water a couple of weeks ago. I removed the battery pack and the card right away. Yesterday when I thought it had enough time to dry I replaced the battery and card. I can...


If you're saying the lcd screen no longer works, you are correct in assuming the water damaged it. You were correct to allow the camera to dry completely before trying to turn it on so at least the rest of the camera works. The screen can be replaced but it can be expensive. Shop around and decide if the repair is worth it.

Broken LCD screen on the inside


They will repair it for $50 if you send it in to them, otherwise you can probably get a screen on ebay.

Screen appears just white on my pentax optio a20 camera


You need a new LCD display.
I can replace the screen for $40, or you can buy the parts on eBay for about $25 and do it yourself if you are very handy, and very skilled with small delicate parts. You could send it to Pentax in Arizona, but they charge about $90 for an LCD replacement. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

Dropped my camera


Sounds like you samaged the tiny cable connecting the lcd to the inside of the camera. You can still take pictures, I assume.. however the screen is now pretty much hopeless.
