The website name is: Darntoothysam com, then search by "A470" and you will see it.

All devices including digital cameras are protected by a 1 year warranty. The green cracked line indicates a hardware problem, and since the camera is on its 6th month, it is still covered by warranty. You should take it to a Kodak authorized service center (not to the store you purchased the camera) to avail the warranty.You just need to bring the purchase receipt.

Cracked screen cover on Kodak camera


screen protectors are only plastic covers that protects the screen from scratches and such.
It is not possible to buy a new LCD screen.
Since the camera is now Out of Warranty a repair will cost 48 pounds with KODAK.

The touch screen on the back of my samsung st500 camera has a crack down it.


My touch screen didn't last being in my pocket, the LCD is fine but the touch screen layer over it was cracked in multiple places. I've returned it to samsung but I'm not sure whether they will cover it under warranty. For a pocket camera not survive being in your pocket is pretty poor. Would definitely not recommend buying one to anyone.

Our daughters HP photosmart M637 camera's display looks like broken glass. She says she did not drop the camera but was scroling through her photos and all of a sudden the display window went blank and...


As you suspect, this simply does not happen unless the LCD panel has had a physical impact. The LCD units are stress tested when manufactured and the odd ones which crack "all of a sudden" would do so within a few months of manufacture and then get replaced under manufacturer's warranty. The broken glass which you see is the cracked LCD unit and it's behind an outer plastic protective cover.

The only way to fix it is to replace the LCD panel, but it's not a DIY job and repairs will cost more than the camera is worth. The M637 will only be about two years old but it was a budget model to start with so it would be cheaper to buy a fully functional used equivalent camera. There are even brand new models of similar or better specification which will be cheaper than a repair.

If the camera works "as is" then it may be better to put up with the fault until the camera no longer works.

I have a Polaroid t737 and the lcd display has been cracked and now I can't see what it being taken. The camera seems to work fine but the lcd does not. Can it be replaced?


First is it under warranty? If it is make use of it. If you did not buy a extended warranty, you can contact Polaroid and get a quote or you may try going through the vendor you purchased your camera from. What you will find out is the cost is going to exceed half of what your camera is worth. Some places will offer you a refurbished camera in exchange for yours and a modest price of maybe 50% of the new replacement cost.

Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $100.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

My screen is cracked


The camera will still work fine. The screen is only for framing your pictures and reviewing them. It will be hard to take pictures that way. Just get a new camera. It will be cheaper than repairing the screen.
