Question about Fuji FinePix A340 Digital Camera

Broken LCD Display

While I was driving, the camera was crunched by the shift lever. The LCD display cracked, and no longer works. The camera is functional otherwise--still takes pictures, just can't see them on the LCD. Does anyone know how to get the camera apart to replace the LCD display? Does Fuji sell the LCD as a replacement part? Thanks.

Re: Broken LCD Display

You should find it easy to pull apart if you take your time and find all the screws. Just don't use brute force or a hammer:-) Maybe a friend can help you if you feel wary. Once the back is off be carefull there may be cables connected to it so don't get carried away. Often the LCD is lying on top of the remainder of the camera and sometimes it's attached the rear of the camera. You'll know as soon as you get it open. Find the screws retaining the LCD and remove them. You may find some adhesive tape holding the LCD down too. Carefully remove this and keep it.The LCD will have one, maybe two flat ribbon cables protuding from it. To disconnect these the sockets they are attached to will have either a tiny plastic flap across the top of the cable holding it down and if it's one of these then carefully pry the flap up with a thin blade. If it doesn't have a flap the you'll notice a different coloured piece of plastic rinning under the cable with very small protusions at each end. With a small screwdiver you should be able ease these protusions away from the socket. Do one end and then the other but don't push too far. This will loosen the cable and you can pull it out. You will probably find two standard type wires coming out of the LCD as well. If you're lucky they terminate in a plug which is easily removable. If not they will be soldered to a PC board. Do a rough drawing of the board and mark where which coloured wire is soldered. For a replacement you can try Fuji but if you think the cost is over the top take a look at Ebay and see if there's the same type camera as yours which is being sold for parts or repair. If you do find one make sure the LCD is intact and bid away on it. Ebay is a goldmine of spare parts and I've used it many times to get cheaper parts for myself. EG a cmplete camera with broken lens for less than Sony wanted for freight for the part I needed. If you don't find one wait a few weeks and one may turn up. When you get the replacement use your memory and put it all back together without ending up with a spare screw or two. Good luck. BMW

If you can’t find a fix there is a guy in South Carolina who sells good used parts. I bought a LCD from him for $39.00 and it works great. I think his email is

Re: Broken LCD Display

The Fuji FINEPIXs nearly always have LCDs that plug into the board rather than needing solder. They're pretty easy to remove - plug to the board, put the ribbon cable back in, snap the lcd into the lcd frame and that's about it.
I've done quite a few fujis. Wish I could help you with a replacment lcd display for an A340. I have a good lcd replacement for an F650 which is a 3 inch lcd / display /screen and though some parts are used in more than just one model, I don't think offhand that the A230 takes the 3" display.
If you're fairly handy, give it a shot at replacing - as I said, the Fujis are pretty easy to do.
Best of luck.

Re: Broken LCD Display

Make sure you are careful messing around in there, the flash charges a capacitor that may still be live when you take the camera apart. I know from first hand experience.

SOURCE: Fuji FinePix Z3 camera broken display

Best and cheapest solution is to buy a faulty Z3 on Ebay with an intact outer glass and do a swop. You'll need a tri-blade screwdriver, a very small 4-bladed( posi-drive), and care, but steady hands and a 'follow your nose' plan should see you through. There is a Z3 on Ebay presently to do the job. You can practice on that before you attempt your own. Good luck.

You can replace the lcd screen although you do need to be careful. You camera has a flash capacitor that contains 300 volts and if you short it out you can easily fry the camera circuitry. You can check on ebay for an lcd or call fuji usa. I will warn you though their parts department isn't the most helpful.

Possibly search ebay for broken cameras of the same make or replacement parts. Fuji's contact center may sell parts or possibly fix your camera for free.

Lcd display cracked and will not display images

A cracked LCD cannot be repaired, only replaced. Given the age of the camera (yes, I have one of these too) I suspect it will be cheaper and much easier to replace the whole camera rather than trying to get the LCD replaced.

The part of my camera that display image is broken

if its the screen (LCD) and if its cracked (may show black spots and colorful lines) then you can do 2 things, 1. get a new camera 2. get a new screen for it and install it (you probaly can get a screen on ebay, but it requires opening up the camera and working on the components on the inside, its not that hard to do, but if you dont have experince with working on electronics, i would have someone replace the screen or simply buy a new camera from the store or even ebay

Our daughters HP photosmart M637 camera's display looks like broken glass. She says she did not drop the camera but was scroling through her photos and all of a sudden the display window went blank and...

As you suspect, this simply does not happen unless the LCD panel has had a physical impact. The LCD units are stress tested when manufactured and the odd ones which crack "all of a sudden" would do so within a few months of manufacture and then get replaced under manufacturer's warranty. The broken glass which you see is the cracked LCD unit and it's behind an outer plastic protective cover.

The only way to fix it is to replace the LCD panel, but it's not a DIY job and repairs will cost more than the camera is worth. The M637 will only be about two years old but it was a budget model to start with so it would be cheaper to buy a fully functional used equivalent camera. There are even brand new models of similar or better specification which will be cheaper than a repair.

If the camera works "as is" then it may be better to put up with the fault until the camera no longer works.

Are the images also black when you look at them with your computer? If not your screen is either broken or no longer connected properly. The LCD screen can be replaced by a tech savy user and the part is available on common auction websites. There are also independent Camera Repair places that carry the part - Camera Repair NYC

If the LCD was physically cracked or broken, then yes you should be able to swap it for an undamaged one.

The cheapest option for you is to advertise or look on Ebay for an identical model - also with faults, but with an undamaged display. (maybe dropped - sold as not working)

See HERE - this is just like yours - but also has the cracked LCD. You need to search for one with a good display.

Take this "donor" apart first to see how it's assembled, then just swap the parts.

This method of repair is common for consumer electronics.

Thanks for using Fixya!. If this has provided a solution, plrease rate as such. Thanks.

Nothing Display in Canon Ixus 750

Explain how broken Does the Screen display anything? If it does but is cracked then clear tape will fix it. If it is 'dead' then nothing will fix it and no repair I would think is possible. But to be sure check your local web site for repairers or even Canon - but possibly not in Bangla
