Question about Nikon COOLPIX L28 Digital Camera Red
Re-installed chip. Installed different chip, no change.
Every time something strange happens to a camera, switch it of and on again. Of one step up. Remover the battery and reinsert it. Next step is to remove both the battery and the memory card. And when you are there, please check if nothing is wrong with the memory card and its contacts. Only a spec of dust in the camera, on one of the contacts, could split the fun.
Check is all contacts (Memory card and battery, and also the ones in the camera) are clean and shiny. Special the contacts on the memory card should be not bent or have a dent.
Try to rescue the pictures on the card to your computer, and when it is in the memory card reader, format the card, with FAT32.
If the card has any defect, your computer will tell you.
If after trying everything here, does not change the situation, please visit your dealer or a certified repair centre. (or start saving for a new camera.
CLEANING of contacts only use a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.

Just responding to your last comment as I could not get back in to the other one after you accepted. To be honest the screen alone will cost you around £45 ($70) delivered from the internet if you can get one. Nikon have a general policy of issuing supply parts to authorised dealers only and this makes it a bit more awkward to get these screens. They can be got but it might take a while to source one.
If you can source a supplier you could certainly try fitting it yourself. There are several videos on YouTube that would give you a good idea of how to do this. However $70 for a camera like this is a lot considering how much value can be had in the market for a new camera with similar spec.
Guess it will come down to how attached you are to that particular camera! Sometimes Ebay throws up a camera with a good screen that is otherwise for parts but again its a chance to take but you could be lucky and pick something up there for as little as $5 - $10.
Wish you luck anyway and thanks for using FixYa!
