Question about Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

Open Question

On My Canon PowerShot SD870 IS I Have a Silver Circle On My Screen After Dropping It At The Skatepark, Should I Replace The Entire Screen Or Can I Fix It On My Own Somehow?

I love this camera to death and there is a silver moon looking thing on my LCD screen. It's not on the pictures when I upload them on my computer but it is aggravating trying to show a friend a picture and you have a "black hole" in your screen. So please if anyone can help out and tell me if I need to buy a replacement screen or if I can just do something on my own in my own house simple and quick. Or if the camera is kinda just screwed and is going to have to stay that way and I need to buy another one. Thank you so much for reading and hopefully thank you for answering! (: Have a wonderful day :D

How hard is it to replace lens unit?


If you have the right tools and the skills it can be done. Look at ifixit dot com, because the have video tutorials of how to repair a camera (or laptop or any electronic thing)
But first you have to be sure it is the lens and not just a setting or a switch, broken flat cable or corrosion. My guess is, you can buy a new camera that makes better quality pictures than your SD870, for less then a new lens unit will cost. But I can be wrong??

SD870 encountered water. Screen is now white. Does the screen need to be replaced or electronic components?


I know that when you take the ribbon cable off the LCD screen, and power the camera up, the screen is just white. It's probably that cable that came lose, or is not properly connecting. A good cleaning on the cable (behind the LCD screen) would fix it.

White display screen


Sounds like the Backlight is working but the LCD is not. The first thing I would try is opening up the camera(if this is the sort of thing you are comfortable doing) and pulling out and then pushing in the LCD ribbon.

See this image for where the ribbon for the lcd connects (at least on a SD600).
