Screen appears just white on my pentax optio a20 camera

Hello,
Admittedly I have recently dropped this camera, and now when I turn it on the screen just appears blank/white. Can this be fixed? Or is just a case of getting a new screen/camera?
Thank you!
Becky

You need a new LCD display.
I can replace the screen for $40, or you can buy the parts on eBay for about $25 and do it yourself if you are very handy, and very skilled with small delicate parts. You could send it to Pentax in Arizona, but they charge about $90 for an LCD replacement. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras.

It sounds like you may have a broken display. It is possible that it is the main board, but much more likely that it is the LCD display. I can fix this for $40, not matter if it is the display, or the main board. Or you can send it to Pentax in Arizona, and they will fix it for about $90. If you just want to get rid of this camera, I also buy all Pentax Option a10, a20, a30, a40 cameras. Contact me at: mrfixitmark at comcast dot net

If you are handy with very small parts, you can replace the display yourself, and you can buy them on eBay for about $25.

I have pentaxA20 digital camera , i have facing very major problem that it is showing white display while capturing pics?


I am assuming that the screen is always white, meaning yuo can't see the menu, and also can't see pictures you have taken. If this is true, then you need a new LCD screen.

your screen is not connected inside your camera it is easy to reconnect as there is a cellophane tab carrying copper connectors that are held in with a plastic clip which has probably unclipped itselfyou need a watch makers screwdriver (small possidriver a eye glass and a pair of small strong tweezers) work on a clean table so if you drop the small screws they can be easily found 6small screws in allI replaced my own screenthat I got fromASAHI PHOTO LTD MDDX on ebaycost was £39 .95 and a genuine replacement screen a doddle to do as it requires no soldering just a bit fiddly hope this helps
