    Thank you for your fast reply. Is that the only thing that could be causing the problem?

The flip out screen has a position sensor sensor. When you flip the screen towards the front, it tells the camera to flip the image vertically, so it would be normal. If it doesn't flip, the people in front will see the image upside down, which is due to the vertical rotation you made when flipped it out.

The other thing is that there is a small button in the corner of the bed where the screen lays into when not flipped out, and the screen itself is depressing this button. The function of this button is dual. It turns off the display, when it's facing inside, and flips the image horizontally when it faces towards you.

If the sensor goes wrong, it wont flip the image when you flip the screen towards the front, and the button will turn the display off, instead of flipping the image vertically, when the screen is facing you.
This sensor is placed in the hinge unit.

    Yes .... Because the LCD is a moving Part it is powered and communicated with a help of a Flexible Strip ..... Due to Usage and sometimes Obstruction the Strip Cracks from Inside breaking the connection as in your case .....

    The two previous commenters are not familiar with your camera, if your's is like all the others with similar mileage, it's the wires inside the cable that runs from the LCD screen to the back of the camera's main circuit board. Bad news is that even though that's very common, Canon won't fix it or sell you the parts to fix it, they want you to buy a new camera. It's not a flex strip, it's a small bundle of wires and the break is right near the flex hinge. The repair is not complaicated but impossible with the right part since it has pri proprietary connectors.

Had new key intion on now my lights won;t flip up or down,


I would take it back to whoever did the install, and see if they will correct it. Is your light switch to flip up the lights on the steering column? Possible they pinched or inadvertently pulled a wire loose. I know on toyotas the flip up lights work off the light stalk, independent altogether of the ignition switch.

My blackberry pearl flip got wet


Sorry to tell you but the back light on your blackberry pearl probably burnt out. That is one of the most common issues with a wet phone.

You can find blackberry flip 8230 and 8230 LCD screen replacements on ebay. Took a while but they are available now.

They are a little tricky to replace but not to hard.

Checkout the guide I wrote for replacing the blackberry flip LCD displayscreen. There are also links to by the new pearl flip LCD screens2.gif
