Re: Scratched LCD Screen

If you put a screen protector on it, it will diminish the look of the scratch.

Not really. You're pretty much screwed ;[ You'll have to bite the bullet and get a replacement screen, or scavange ebay for a dead camera with a good screen. Good luck

My touchscreen on my new sony tx7 camera got scratched in my handbag, and the indent is interfering with anything i try to there anything i can do? is it possible to replace the screen?


I'm sorry to hear that the new DSC-TX7 Camera screen got scratched. You can get the screen replaced with the help of a service technician. Changing the LCD screen of the Camera is bit expensive. Contact the Service Technician to check if the screen requires a replacement or the entire LCD screen. I suggest you to use a screen protector (scratch guard) which is available with the SonyStore. This will help you in avaoiding scratches on the screen.

My screen is all white


First verify that you didn't just accidentally turn off the LCD. To check, turn the camera on and press the "DISPLAY" or "DISP" button once. One other thing to check is that faded pictures can sometimes be caused by a stuck shutter. Potential symptoms may also include purple scratchy lines showing up on the LCD monitor and the camera's pictures. Other reported symptoms may be extremely distorted images (one reader likened them to the movie "Grudge"). Or blank or black pictures or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. You may suspect that the camera's shutter is not opening, but this is not the case. Note that the camera's menu functions should show up without any problem. Please note that your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. Note that they're going to look for dings and dents. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Casio support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost.

Thank you!!

Displayscreen scratched on ge e850

Most likely you cannot. I recommend calling support. If you have warrenty on the product, they may give you a new screen, but since it's accidental damage, they may not.

No replacement available.
protective cover is the most likely option

Lines across the LCD screen

Two things can cause lines across the LCD either horizontal or vertically. The first (and most likely) is a small crack in the display wafer. LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. They are very fragile and can be easily damaged if dropped. I broke one in my pants pocket.

The second would be if a pin on the ribbon cable (to the LDC wafer) was not making good contact. If you disassemble the camera it is possible to clean the contacts using contact cleaner (or alcohol). Only attempt this is you are willing to replace the camera if you don’t put it back together properly.

No LCD view

Can you play back ok ? ( i.e. no distortion in playback mode ) if you can but have no image in capture mode then your camera's CCD sensor is faulty and must be replaced. If camera is not more then 2 years old, you should try to have it done free of charge since the sensor should last 10 years +.
