I have a Kodak V1003 camera and I went to use it at my daughters birthday party and when I turned it on the LCD Screen was black and all messed up . When you take a picture you can't see it .... So what can I do to fix it ... I spent way to much money for that camera for me not to be able use it anymore .... That camera cost me over $ 200.00 plus dollars and I want to get it fixed ....
Contact your local camera shop, they might be able to get someone to repair it. But don't hope for too much and it will be expensive. You could see if the camera is storing the photos taken but downloading them onto a computer, if it has a memory card take it out and put it into a card reader. If it does store the pictures and you still want to use it then you will just have to point it at the subject and hope the camera catch's the picture.

unfortunately it would appear to be a CCD or main board failure.
If the camera is out of warranty (as this should be covered) my best suggestion is to pick up one off ebay with a broken screen and put your screen in it, broken screens are common on these cameras so they go quite cheaply, far cheaper than kodak would charge for repair and the swap is easy.
There are several searchs to try "parts v1003" "spares v1003" "Faulty v1003" "repair v1003"
If it is simply a crack and other wize still OK 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? If you can find the model you want and if it is in good nick.
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.
