Kodak V803 replacement of LCD screen

Took your advise and got an lcd replacement. Any suggestion or advise on how to get the screws to come out/dislodge from this unit? I'm using a standard (tiny) phillips head screwdriver, but they just keep turning and turning without rising from the unit.

    Since the screws were soooo small, I put a little nail polish on the tip of the phillips head - - placed the screw on the driver and let the whole thing dry - - walla - out they came. Then I continued to follow "sharcnet's" instructions for LCD replacement and my daugthers camera works as good as new.

    NEW ADD - a covered a piece of hard plastic with a packing material and put in in the carrying case to try to avoid this in the future. THX for your help.

SOURCE: LCD screen is black-cannot take photos

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

Could be a slight misalignment of the ribbon connector- I'd try to reseat it first. Otherwise, you'd have to try it in another known, good camera to know for sure. Not sure if a camera shop could test it, you might call one as a last resort. Good luck!

How to replace a defective LCD screen in a Kodak V803 Digital Camera


I just replaced the LCD screen and have a couple of notes. The screwdriver you need is a #00 Phillips tip. There are two lengths screws in the band, keep track of them to reinstall correctly. A magnifying glass is handy so you can actually see what you are taking apart. I had trouble keeping the cable/strap folded correctly while reinstalling, so I used a piece of dental floss to lightly pull on the cable while reassembling and then slid it out as the cases just started to fit together. All relatively painless and the camera now works. I ordered the screen from Kodak for about $51.00 total with delivery and taxes.

Tip

How to replace a defective LCD screen in a Kodak V803 Digital Camera


This tip is for Kodak V803 cameras that will take pictures fine but you can only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC.

A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00.

To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector.

Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place.

Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard.

Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

Damaged LCD Screen


The following procedure works on the V1003. It uses the same LCD screen as the V803.
