Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera

My lcd screen is cracked !

My LCD screen is cracked, i do believe. the screen is mostly black and white with crack lines. I can only see a small part out of the bottom left side of the screen. Since I can't see, I haven't used it and I'm not sure if that is the only thing broken. Thanks for the concern !

    My Optio M20 has the same problem, it seems that the "protective" carry case that was a £20 extra isnt as "protective" as it should be and the warranty doesnt cover that kind of damage.
    it actually quite annoying. im wondering is it worth it getting the thing repaired or just buy a new one?

In most cases the LCD is slightly different on most models of cameras. If there are only slight differences between models in the same line such as the megapixel rating or the internal memory the part may cross over. Models of the same camera from different production years also usually cross. I would say that VERY rarely does an LCD part cross over between model lines. Search online for a camera repair facility, you may be able to find one who would be willing to sell you the part. Be forewarned that replaceing the LCD is not always a straight forward process and there is always a chance of harming the camera in other ways while you try to fix it.

Ok here it is open the camera and re insert the fine lcd ribbon into is holder problem solved. Your camera must have had a sharp knock to dislodge the lcd screen and pulling out the ribbon. Worked for me.

Hi!
This is a feature and not a defect of the K100D. You can turn this off by going to the menu and going into the second tab (playback menu). Once there, go to preview display, where you will have 3 options - off, histogram and brighten areas. Set this to off (your camera is set to brighten areas, that is why the white parts of your photos appear to be blinking).
Hope this helps!

My Sanyo camera has 2 black dots (like polka dots) on the screen and a black line at the bottom. They don't affect the picture but is a problem when trying to focus the camera.


Hello Kitomari4

OK, the fact that you only notice the the lines and spots on the lcd itself, means that the lcd itself is damaged. This is most likely due to an internal crack on the lcd. I would suggest you get the screen replaced at your nearest camera repair centre.

Please feel free to let me know if you need ant further assistance.

Kind regards

The lcd is cracked.need to know where to get it fixed.it is on the inside.it looks black and white and cracked


My screen is not "cracked" although it does look like its cracked in lower right corner. It's black on that side about 1/2" from edge althe way to the top an the other side is very shaded. This makes seeing the picture impossible to see with any clarity.

Canon ixus i7. LCD screen is cracked, and thus does not sdisplay any image, however the camera still zooms, takes pictures, etc Obviously now viewfinder so only way to see what your taking pic of is...


I know some canon LCDs can be replaced by the user. Canon will sell you the specific part or you can find them on ebay. The LCD ribbon cable can be easily pulled out and with a little fiddling a new one can be put in. I have not personally done it with at ixus i7. When I did it it cost like $45. Goodluck!

here are some photos of the process for a canon SD. I know the i7 might be a little different.

Hey iheartcheer,
If you intend on paying someone to replace your lcd screen the repair will most likely cost more than the value of the camera, but you could have an estimate done at an authorized service center.

Sincerely,

Coolpix nikon digital camera


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).

Screen in toast!


That is definately a cracked lcd your describing! I doubt there is an easy solution but maybe... If you are able to get into the menu and disable the LCD that might help. However! The fact that the LCD is broken shouldn't keep the camera from running (though its remotely possible) If you can't shut it off or work without it the odds are you've got an expensive paperweight. At least thats what I gather based on your description.
