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.

My screen is crack


Unless it is a camera worth more than $1,000, throw it in electronic recycle and get a new one. Sorry, but this one is clearly dead.

I have a cracked screen. What do I do to fix it?


If you take or send it in for service, the cost will be over $100. Is it worth it to you? If you're handy with electronic equipment and soldering, you could buy a similar model on Ebay and swap out the screens.

The LCD screen is cracked. Is it worth replacing.


If you can source a replacement screen then it's usually a straightforward repair, but it's completely uneconomical to do even on a DIY basis.

Your camera sold new for £70 in the UK in 2007, a replacement screen including shipping is going to cost more than you could buy a complete, pristine, working, used L10 for.

Cracked viewing screen - no warranty I don't think. Is it worth fixing?


fixing this would would probably cost you almost as much as a new camera...i suggest you save a little and just buy a new one.

It can be fixed . But it will cost around 100-200 dollars .

If you are comfortable with your camera then you go with replacement of the screen .

If you feel your not satisfied with the features then go with new camera

Thanks for using Fixya

My screen cracked


Yes, the screen can be replaced. Can you still take pictures? Can you download the pictures to your PC to see them?

I am just trying to determine whether there is more damage to the camera than just the screen.

I have replaced several of these screens on Kodak cameras. They are not too difficult to replace. I wrote an article on how to do it on the Kodak V603/V803/V1003 series cameras.

You can either contact Sanyo to fix your camera or purchase the new screen from them.

Since you just purchased it in December, it may still be under warranty. Try giving them a call and see if they will fix it for you under the warranty.

They may not be willing to do so if they suspect the camara was dropped or abused in any way. Still, its worth a try.

The other solution is to replace the screen yourself.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
