I just dropped Fujifilm Finepix S4600 and everything works fine except for the screen?

Could be a driver board or the screen itself. Possibly no worth repairing. Ask in a camera repair shop.

Was dropped. Now will do everything EXCEPT take photos. Lens, display, flash, etc. etc. all work fine. Just no screen image or photo when in "shoot" mode.

Sounds like the CCD or a stuck shutter blade. Try this place: They only service Canons and they are the only place we recommend for the Canons. It's all they work on and they are about half the price of most shops, plus the work is just excellent through them.

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

I dropped my camera 2 feet & now the screen just has lines on a black background. the menu & such still show up perfectly fine. So does the pictures already on the camera

See your photo on computer. you may not get lines. On primary instance it seems that due that **** your LCD screen has been stop working properly, I such case your photo will not be affected at all. Changing the LCD screen will solve your problem..
If your photo has line.. then sorry you have to get it serviced and this will cost you a lot....
Hope this has helped you. Please rate the answer.. Thanks....
