Screen Broken


Hi

We can get you the LCD or do the repair for you if you prefer... though if the pictures are blurry that has to do with the lens not the LCD.

When you take a picture with the LCD are you allowing the camera to focus before pressing the button all the way down to snap the photo? If the LCD was cracked due to pressure there shouldn't have been any damage to the lens, it should be working fine.

One option is to purchase a defective camera online and see if you can repair one of the two from the parts.

If we can help, please let us know, we are an AFFORDABLE digital camera repair business.

Kodak V803


It would appear you have a damaged LCD screen. The same problem happened to my daughter's V803. The camera will take pictures fine but you will only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC. A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00. To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector. Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place. Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard. Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

Good Luck!

Shutter speed


You need to let the camera auto-focus time to do its job. Press and hold the shutter button half way until the white square in the LCD display (or LED light next to the view finder) turns green, then press the button all the way down for the camera to take the picture.

The following procedure works on the V1003. It uses the same LCD screen as the V803.
