The LCD is easily replaced, but the part is expensive. Most independent shops could replace it for around $120 parts and labor. Olympus factory price is between $134 and $174 depending on any other damage.

Recently I discovered a long fine crack in the soundboard of my 5'7" grand piano. Is there a way to repair the crack?

If it truly a crack any repair needs to be done professionally. The board may be joined or glued from two pieces and the glue line MAY show. If the crack is very straight this may be the case. How is the sound? If it is normal then just watch it for any degradation.

Hello Laura

Well, as you can imagine, dropping the camera will almost always have bad results. Besides your cracked LCD, i think you might have a circuit problem.

In this case, it will be much cheaper to rather buy a new camera, rather than trying to repair the circuit. I need to mention that the if the LCD is broken, the camera will actually still function, so this informs us that the problem is not limited to the LCD.

Hope this can be of help.

Feel free to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

Cracked LCD on Canon PowerShot A510. A few weeks back, I noticed that my LCD view screen was cracked on my camera. The camera still functions since I use the other view finder anyway. However, I obviously...

Your best option is buy a junk one off ebay and replace LCD. LCD replacement is very straight forward, just remove the screws, pry the case apart and the rest will be easy. Use the one you buy off ebay and practice getting it apart.

Camera got caught in a car door when it was closed

If the camera is not that new, repairing it will not be cost effective. My Mom had a shutter release issue with her Canonand they wanted at least $100 to fix it. She paid $180 for the camera... It's in the math...!

Cracked screen

Cracked screens in the r707 is easy replacement. I just tend to swap screens from another r707 that has a lens issue. I have noticed that there is two types of LCDs in the r707 camera. One is easy type to replace because all it has is a serial cable that is attached circuit board. The other is a little harder because it has, besides the serial cable, two additional wires that are soldered to the board. The lcd is actually attached the black half of the camera's case. You will have to remove all of the screws and then remove the front (metallic) half of the camera. There are two cables that attached the camera circuit board. One is the LCD and the other is button/SD flash board; both of which are attached to the back half of the camera's case. Remove the back case and swap out the LCD and reattach everything in the reverse order of dissassembly.

Screen Broken


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.

Broken screen

First if you have a broke LCD " Cracked" than ok its bad.
but if the back-light is not working and you cannot see a image easily it most likely is something else.
  1. remove the case screws
  2. remove both sides of the case
  3. on the lens side their is a shinny black piece of tape VERY carefully remove it
  4. release the ribbon cables
  5. take off the battery door
  6. de-solider the red and black wires closes to the battery door REMEMBER how they go
  7. turn the camera over
  8. on the right hand side there it you control board or cable
  9. VERY VERY carefully pry up the control board it can rip very easily
  10. now you can remove your LCD you might have to pry it up CAREFULLY because it might be taped down.
Hope this helps It is not that easy to repair digital cameras if you feel unsure about the repair leave it to the experts it would only cost you around 85.00 + Shipping to have the camera fixed. I repair these all the time and Know it is not that easy to fix.

Edge of battery door was broken

Yea I did same to my Kodak digital camera. You may find someone who can fix it - its just a small little part to replace. But in my case, I went a camera repair place where they gave me the "i dunno" look & said it could take weeks cost this much or that much. Anyway, I discovered that by wrapping electrical tape around the lithium battery I could wedge the battery in so that I could use the camera, yippee. And that worked great until the entire camera had a heart attack & died.

"Oily" spots burnt into LCD

Sounds like a cracked LCD. That happened to my S400, and it was pretty evident the glass screen had broken. I bought a new one and installed it myself at a cost of under $40. Having a shop do the repair will cost quite a bit more. If you think this is the problem, do a Google search on "canon s400 lcd screen repair" and you'll find some resources to walk you through the ordering and replacement process.
