Question about Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera

Damaged LCD Screen

While in a "protective case", my Kodak V1003 fell to the floor and damaged it's screen. The LCD resembles a cracked windshield with vertical colorful lines and random black blots of ink on it. Would it cost more to have it repaired opposed to buying another camera?

    The lcd screen on my v1003 is also cracked. Does anyone know where I could get just the lcd screen for the camera?

    I purchased a new lcd screen but received no instructions on replacing my cracked screen. How can I find out how to get the camera apart to replace the cracked screen.

    The screen broke while my daughter was carrying the camera in her bag. The camera is out of warranty.

    my lcd screen cracked too, i think my camera was thrown, or dropped. but im not very thrilled about it. how can i fix it??

    Very interesting. I bought the camera for my son in July 2007. Three weeks later he had it in his pocket, sat down, and found the screen cracked internally. Seems to be a common problem, maybe a defect in the camera?
    Hello Kodak?

    My son was carrying my camera in his pocket, sat down and the screen broke. My daughter, who has the same camera, has the problem of the lens not retracting and now there is a piece of something rattling around inside. I was thinking I could use her LCD display to replace my broken one but didn't know how. It would be better than junking both of our cameras. I believe both problems are probably a design defect :(

    I had my phone next to me on the bed while i was sitting on it for a second turned off, the next time I turned it on low and behold the screen had done the same as the other guys here! Really really annoyed!

    I have a samsung l700 and I have a similiar problem. I forgot my camera in my back pocket and although it was in a "protective case" the screen cracked internally. Is it worth it buying a new screen or would it be cheaper to buy a new camera? If so, where can i get a replacement screen for my camera?

  • melissarynn Jan 07, 2009

    I earlier wrote my phone but I did mean my camera, who knows why I put phone!

    I went and asked in a camera shop what would be cheaper; a new screen or a new camera. I was told that despite it being a good camera, it was much cheaper and probably amuch better idea to get a new camera rather than a new screen. I now have a big panasonic lumix camera and it is amazing, no problems of yet with that!

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

It would appear you have a damaged LCD screen. The same problem happened to my daughter's V803. The camera will take pictures fine but you will 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.

Good Luck!
- Jim

Beware, is a scam! I ordered a screen for my Kodak and never received it. I ended up getting the charges reversed through my credit card. I checked today and their web site is no longer up, so maybe they got shut down. Here's another interesting comment about the scam:

You're much better off ordering directly through Kodak. Here is a thread that contains that contact info. I ordered my screen here and got it within days. Good luck.

I broke my LCD screen for a kodak camera that cost $150 and got it repared for $70 but i recently bought a new v1003 kodak camera for $200. If your camera is in good shape exteriorly and you like it i would go with just replacing the lcd screen ...
