No need for a repair manual, if you have patients you can replace the screen all by your self? Screen for this camera sells for about 19.00 to 25.00 dollars on Ebay, brand new.
Unfortunately you do have to take the camera apart to get to the broken screen and that takes patients by removing all the tiny screws around the camera. Once you remove the screws you still have to pry open the rear panel carefully, careful not to apply to much pressure along the clips/locks holding the rear panel. The rear panel should begin to pop out as you pry the panel all around. Now you have to carefully see how the screen is held down, might have just some metal frame snapped on around the screen or a few tiny screws? Once you see that the screen is loose be careful not to jerk it out just like that, you have to find the RIBBON that is connected to the mother board and carefully pull it out of its socket, then the whole screen should just slide out. Replace it with the new one the same way you removed the old one, careful when assembling it back together and make sure it the rear panel snaps into place before replacing all the screws you removed.

SOURCE: How to replace LCD monitor/screen in an Olympus C5050 camera

Easy, remove the 9 screws that hold the rear case and pull the case apart,.remember there are 4 screws under the hotshoe base and 4 under the memory door and one under the USB cover. You need to pry and slide the hotshoe base back with a slim screwdriver and youll see 4 screws, remove the rear ones. There will be 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear case, the LCD and the buttons. These pull out carefully with gentle pressure. The LCD can be removed with screws and another ribbon cable connector that needs to be unclipped and then removed. replace LCD, Put it back together and make sure the ribbon cables are fully seated. Good to go.

SOURCE: Olympus FE-270 has a grey LCD screen, with vertical lines.

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $87.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

SOURCE: I accidently dropped my 1050 sw olympus digital

Hi

This has happened due to failure of lcd controller or due to a flex cable misalignment. When your camera was dropped, the cable connecting the lcd with the main board might came off and needs to be reconnected back. However, if you want to be sure its the flex cable and not any lense issue, you'll need to connect your camera with the computer and check whether all pictures you clicked after the camera gone bad are fine?

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

There are some black vertical lines on the left side of the LCD screen of my Canon 1100D/T3 DSLR camera. What could be the reason for this?


The LCD is bad. To verify, take a photo. If there are lines on the photo when viewed on a PC, then it's the image sensor. Otherwise it's the LCD. Only replacement of the LCD or wiring will fix it.

White line on viewing screen


If the line is also on your photos it is a bad censor assembly, if the line is just on the LCD than the LCD is faulty. Either way you are looking at a trip to the repair shop.

My Cannon Powershot SD1000 LCD screen does not work. It will take pictures but will not let me change options, view the menu, or view images- past or present. Pressing the DISP button does nothing.


Has the screen been cracked/damaged? Was your camera dropped in any liquid? It's worth it to try having the LCD screen replaced, as it's quite affordable. If there is liquid damage near the LCD input inside the camera that would be another issue that would be solved by replacing those main boards.

In an ideal situation it would be just that the backlight cable wiggled itself out of its input (I'm assuming the screen doesn't light up anymore), which is something you could look at yourself if you're comfortable taking your camera apart. I wish you luck =)

Your best option is buy a junk one off ebay and replace LCD. LCD replacement is very straight forward, just remove the screws, pry the case apart and the rest will be easy. Use the one you buy off ebay and practice getting it apart.

Black pictures with blue lines running horrizontally through them


If you are able to see the picture in the LCD in black color and if there are no damages to the LCD -the LCD is fine. There is a back light panel attached behind the LCD which may be defective.Check for the loose connections. If you need spare parts contact me.
