Re: HP407 screen cracked

You need a replacement screen.
You can find a broken M407 with a good LCD on Ebay for pretty cheap. (I picked up one for $20 shipped).
From there, it's a matter of taking out the 6 screws (very small Phillips screwdriver) that hold the camera housing on, the 2 screws that secure the LCD retaining ring on, pulling the LCD out of its mount, and gently pulling the LCD ribbon down and out of the white connector (mounted on the camera's board).
Reverse to reassemble.
Gentleness and patience is key, you're dealing with sensitive electronics here.
Even someone with little mechanical aptitude can do it, I'd say 30 mins tops to swap screens out of 2 cameras.
Before you buy an Ebay camera, try taking yours apart first to make sure you can do it, or find a family member or friend who's up to the task.
These cameras are not worth that much now. It's not worth paying a shop to do it. If you don't get a deal on an Ebay parts camera and do it yourself, you should invest in a new camera.

My Nikon coolpix touch screen is nearly new, it was a gift and worked for only 2 days. Now when I turn it on, and there is what looks to be a crack against a white screen. There however is no crack on the...

If it looks like a crack, it is a crack. You may not feel it because the internal screen is protected by an outer screen. Pressure of some type is usually the cause of cracked screens. This is an expensive repair.

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.

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.

Digital camera screen broken

A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.

Cracked LCD

Elas, How do you want me to help you. A cracked screen is a cracked screen. And you say that it does not help you take pics. Well. you are already doing the next best thing, ie, using the eyepiece. If you feel that is cumbersom then have the screen replaced. You may not be able to justify the crack, towards warranty.

Card is unformatted

If you have the HP M407, the maximum capacity sd card it can use is a 1gb. I had the same problem and a 1gb card solved the problem. Hope this helps.

Cracked screen

Hello Mari,
The products standard guarranty doesn't cover cracked screens. You have to replace it. Otherwise the black spot will grow and cover all the screen.
You can find a replacement screen for Casio Exilim Z80 in this link:

It is not difficult to install. Just make sure that the battery is removed and the flash capacitor discharged before opening the screen.
