Re: screen appears faulty

With switched on try pressing the camera casing around the edges of the screen. This may be a loose connector and squeezing the camera casing may rectify it - then may perhaps it will not. Try the menu button If it comes up look for the Reset function. Carefully look in the manual in case there is an error correction method. Failing all that Get onto the Samsung web site Technical Help.

White line on viewing screen

If the line is also on your photos it is a bad censor assembly, if the line is just on the LCD than the LCD is faulty. Either way you are looking at a trip to the repair shop.

Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white

This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.

White Sreen

unfortunately it would appear to be a CCD or main board failure.
If the camera is out of warranty (as this should be covered) my best suggestion is to pick up one off ebay with a broken screen and put your screen in it, broken screens are common on these cameras so they go quite cheaply, far cheaper than kodak would charge for repair and the swap is easy.
There are several searchs to try "parts v1003" "spares v1003" "Faulty v1003" "repair v1003"

Best of luck

My camera screen is broken!!!

It sounds very much like it, press the ask me button and send me a message and if you can send me a clear picture of the screen I can tell you.

Usually returning a camera for a new screen is a bit expensive, you may be able to get the part from the manufacture but its often cheaper to get a faulty camera off ebay and swap the screen yourself or find someone who can..

As to weather its worth it it depends on what the camera is....

Broken screen

Sounds like the LCD. Setting anything next to it, bumping it may crack the screen

Black LCD Screen

Faulty main or secondary board. Could also be faulty light sensor or iris. Not a user fixable problem unless you can get another f601 with a broken lens etc with good boards (to replace boards). Or a dead camera with good lens assembly (contains iris).
Very fiddly if you have the parts!!!!!!

Best advise is to sell it as faulty on ebay.
