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?

Re: Damaged LCD Screen

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!

Re: Damaged LCD Screen

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.

My LCD screen has a dark spot

The screen must be replaced. To do it yourself, the screen will cost around $40 from virtualvillage dot com. I just did one. It took about 15 minutes. The ribbon cable is held in by a flip up lock on the main board. Otherwise, it's just remove the screws around the case and pull the bottom edges outward first.

Best way is to go to a photo store and purchase lcd screen protector film or heavy duty transparent repair tape[camping store]

Taking a camera apart is no easy task unless your are used to fine instruments and reassembling them ditto
Buying spares new is a nono usually .Secondhand -well its a gamble isn't it?
