Sounds like a cracked LCD screen. You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.

Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is usually beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.

I dropped my camera and the screen is cracked on the inside. Can still take pictures but cannot view it? Can this be fixed?


No unfortunately not as the screen is broken the only way to fix this problem would be to have the camera fixed and to do so would most likely cost more than the camera itself, but you can still take the photos that your taking off the SD card and load them on your computer to view and this will work just fine

The Monitor screen doesn't work when I want to take a photo, I can only see picture through eye piece.


If your screen works in playback mode, the screen and flexible circuit boards are intact. To shoot an image using the LCD screen you must first activate the "live view" function in the setup menu, and then press the live view (Lv) button to view your image on the LCD.

My Cannon Powershot SD1000 LCD screen does not work. It will take pictures but will not let me change options, view the menu, or view images- past or present. Pressing the DISP button does nothing.


Has the screen been cracked/damaged? Was your camera dropped in any liquid? It's worth it to try having the LCD screen replaced, as it's quite affordable. If there is liquid damage near the LCD input inside the camera that would be another issue that would be solved by replacing those main boards.

In an ideal situation it would be just that the backlight cable wiggled itself out of its input (I'm assuming the screen doesn't light up anymore), which is something you could look at yourself if you're comfortable taking your camera apart. I wish you luck =)

LCD screen black when photo being taken


Hi!
Have you tried pushing the button first under the mode dial? It changes view mode, just above the MENU button?

Viewing photos without time and date


Unfortunately the Nikon Coolpix 7900 does not have a 'display' button to take care of this. So you need to go through Menu to access Setup menu. Here you will get option to customize the display.

This is the problem, when she dropped it, some gears inside it got shoved out of place. If the screen or anything glass you can see is still intact, that's a good sign that it probably didn't break any of the fragile gears but if it isn't intact then you need to get it repaired, although that could cost up to $100 and that's how much this camera costs

This sounds like a broken or cracked LCD screen. The backlite is working, thus you will get the white screen. The LCD could also be disconnected internally, or has other problems. But this is a direct problem with the LCD.
A camera like this can usually take pictures, and you may be able to use it to set the menus by using the video cable to the TV or computer screen (some flat screens have video inputs).
