My kodak easyshare c603 has a deffect in lcd where can i get the lcd to be replace ?

Repair cost is too much. Do it yourself.
Buy a used camera (one sold for parts) from You may be able to get it very cheap. Then replace the LCD from the one you bought to your old one. A new LCD screen from shop will be expensive. I wont advice you to get a new one.
The only tool you need a small screwdriver set (buy it for $1 from Dollar store). Remove the camera cover by removing 5-6 screws. Once the cover is removed, LCD is accessible. The LCD cable is connected through a connector to the main board. There is a pressure plate in the connector, simply lift it and pull the cable out and remove your LCD. That simple. Replace in the reverse order.

Digital camera screen broken

A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.

Cracked LCD

Elas, How do you want me to help you. A cracked screen is a cracked screen. And you say that it does not help you take pics. Well. you are already doing the next best thing, ie, using the eyepiece. If you feel that is cumbersom then have the screen replaced. You may not be able to justify the crack, towards warranty.
