old post, but perhaps the answer is usefull for other people. It's not that hard but you have to have some amount of skills. If you order a new screen, realise that you have to solder the old backlight cable on the screen cable. That is the hardest part. I have made pictures of the steps for disassembly and filmed the assembly
Repair cost is too much. Do it yourself. Buy a used camera (one sold for parts) from EBAY.com. 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. Two sites to give you step by step directions:
You may purchase LCD screen for your camera at www.uscamera.com.
Try the steps below on replacing the LCD screen.
1.take all screws out. 2. unsnap the case carefully. 3. slide black clips on both sides of LCD leads, both have them. 4. slide new screen into place, slide black clips back up, latch down screen. 5. replace case then screws. Done Deal. If camera worked before it will be better now.
But if your camera still In warranty, you may call Kodak at 1.800.235.6325.
LCD are very easy to change out once the back of the case is off then all you have to do is carefully lift up the hold down and pull the cable out the LCD can be obtained off of ebay or i think I might have one in stock. once you have the new LCD reverse the steps.
take off the back you are going to need a soldiering iron. once the back is off gently lift the lcd out of the holder. fallow the ribbon cable to the plastic hold down. with a very small flat head screw driver. pop up the tab. take off the front case cover on the bottom of the main board you will see the lcd red and black wire de-solider them remember how the go. fallow these steps on the other camera tfering the good lcd to the other unit. and reverse the steps. if you fell this is something you do not want to attack I will replace your lcd with you other units lcd for. 30.00 goto digitalcamrepair.com for more help.
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.
