Question about Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

A cracked or ripped screen?

I accidentally left the flip screen facing out and put it in my purse. When I took it out to use, it looked like part of the screen was ripped or cracked from the inside, and the outside surface seems fine. There's nothing on the screen when I turn it on except for white, the black area with the crack/rip, and sometimes some random lines. When I put the pictures on my computer, they are normal

Is there a way to get just the screen fixed? If so, where, and approximately how much would it cost?

Re: A cracked or ripped screen?

You have to contact Nikon to know where their service center is. They can replace the screen for you. I have no idea for the cost for the model of camera you have.

From what I have seen, for the average digital camera the part alone would be about $70 US to $90 US. There would be about 1 hour of labour.

Spilled soda on a digital camera and now it won't take pictures. What can I do?

Most likely the some of the camera's electronics has been damaged.
The cost of repair may be a little less than a new camera. You can ask for a quote but they may charge for a quote unless you go ahead with the repair.
I recommend you put your money towards a new camera which most likely be better and may have more features that your old camers.
If the SD memory card is OK then you can use it as an addition memory card in the new camers.

This tip is for Kodak V803 cameras that will take pictures fine but you can 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.

I had my camera in my purse and when i took it out and turn it on. my camera turns on white screen but with a black liquid spot on it. is it fixable? please help my camera is brand new.

Your purse would have happened to be black and the camera on the outside pocket would it?

If so and it was in heat then the LCD screen has super heated, it might come back after a few hours to cool. There is operating temperature ranges listed in the manual extreme heat and cold will just kill most digital point and shoot type cameras, sometimes they come back sometimes not.

I would also take the battery out of it and let it sit for a few hours to cool DON'T put it in a cold place let it come up to room temperature gradually.

Cracked screen


The warranty covers manufacturing defects and such, camera stops working completely etc, cracked screen is not one of those things.

You must have dropped your purse or something must have pressed on the screen and caused it to crack.

I think they will charge you for a new screen.

Cracked Camera

This depends on your warranty, if it covers cracks and the product being dropped I'm sure they will give you a new one to replace it, or find parts to repair it.

Samsung l200 digital camera screen broken

Actually, it's super easy to replace the screen. You'll need to order a new one (around 35$, or so). You'll also need a small screwdriver and a small pair of tweezers (actually, eyebrow removing ones will work just fine).

Before you do anything, TAKE OUT THE BATTERY.

Unscrew the screws, remove the front and back casing. Flip the broken screen out of the holder. Follow the orange conductive ribbon round to the other side of the camera, and using the tweezers, gently tug it out of the printed circuit board.

Carefully remove the broken screen.

Take the new one, thread the orange strip back through, and insert it in the PCB slot. Put the lcd screen in it's case, and then put the front and back on, and screw it together.

Watch out for them screws, their small and tricky. don't let them get away from you!

There's a number clips on youtube of someone doing this to a similar camera, but not this model.

This really isn't hard to do, so, yknow, I'd recommend it to anyone.

Ready to cry

same thing happened to me, i carried mine in my pocket. the glass itself doesnt crack but the lcd inside it does. you can still take pictures and videos with it but you have to hook it up to a computer to see them. ive been looking everywhere for the menus to it since i cant see them but i cant find them. everytime i put batteries in it the date resets so it always says 2006 since i cant change it. also, you can look on ebay for a similar model that has a working lcd for like 20 to 30 dollars. its fairly simple to do, but it has to be the same model.
