The auto rotate sensor is going bad. Look in your camera's menus for a selection to turn autorotate off. Actually going inside the camera and fixing the sensor is possible for those with some electronics background, but really not worth the risk of further damaging your camera. This feature is not necessary as most image processing software has this same feature if needed.

Replacing LDC screen on Fuji Z10FD camera


Probably, yes.
Remove the 2 screws on the side,
Remove the 3 screws in the buttom. (2 of which are tri-wing)
Remove the 2 screws in the battery compartment.
Flip out the chrome side (from the front backwards)
Remove the 2 screws underneath the chrome side.
Turn the camera upside down. You can now flip the backcover down (gently lift the cover, both on the mid by the tripd hole and on the side, where the crome plate was) Watch out for the USB connector.
Gently lift the broken LCD out. You need to release (flip up) the tiny white lock on the connector to release the ribbon.
Assembly same procedure, but backwards.
Beware of the flash components. The can give a nasty electrical chock.

It sounds to me that there is moisture in the camera. Send it to a repair centre.

LCD screen turns off when back in body


We had a similar problem. If you remove the cover to the place where the LCD hinges, you will find two little wires broken off. These attach to a black touch sensor resting in the lcd screen. It comes out easily and without issue. WIth the two wires torn, the camera does not recognize that the LCD display has been turned around. It turns the screen off because it believes you have the LCD screen pointed inward towards the body of the camera. A small extension for the wires and a soldering iron solved that set of problems.

look for a small pinhole somewhere on the camera body. then insert a pin to reset the camera. if no pinhole, remove batteries for a long time (about 24 hours) then try again.

My Screen is upside down and the words are backwards


The first thing I would do is a reset. Read your manual about this process, which often requires pressing two buttons at the same time or take your batteries out, wait a minute and put them back. See if resetting helps. Not being familiar with your camera, speciffically, Ithis sounds like the firmware in the camera is reading the info back to you backwards when it processes the image (from memory) for you to view. That means it is the firmware in the camera that is defective and sometimes you can update or reinstall that. I would check the manufacturer's site for updates or recalls and if it is under warranty, send it back to be fixed.
