Broken LCD screen

Panasonic PV-GS59
Camera works fine. Can see through the eye piece, also the playback.
The screen is broken.
Can I replace the LCD screen? Where do I get the part and how much would it cost?
Is this something that I could do myself?

It's probably not worth fixing. Camcorders are so cheap these days and it's high time you upgraded to a good miniDV camera or even a hard drive model.

You could try resetting the camera. See if there's a firmware update for it that may address the issue. Go into the menu to see if you accidentally muted it.

But if a repair is in order, rule of thumb is that if you get an estimate that is north of 50% what you paid for it, you're better off taking that money and buying a newer, more updated model.

It is only one item that you are talking about above right?

Anyway to replace the screen (All brands are similar, the one I am most familiar with is Kodak which is what I am basing these directions off of), 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 to help prevent future screen cracking from accidental dropping.

Please Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck!

Hey, all.

I also have this problem, but have a little more to add:

Here is a website that carries the lcd screen: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/Epartr/PartsList.asp

I think that its the following part number:

L5BDDYH00022 LCD DISPLAY (MONITOR) 87.56
$87.56 sucks, but it could be worse. Problem is now, I'm not sure how to replace it without taking the entire camera apart.

Let me know if someone does this successfully.

Thanks!

Your flat-wire connection between LCD monitor and the monitor PWB inside the camera is broken. can't fix it by yourself. Look for a Panasonic authorized service only!
