Re: its not a camera its a electronic dictionary

The cracked LCD itself can not be fixed, however a replacement LCD is always an option.
They are fairly cheap, running around 40-50 dollars.
Here is a link to one on eBay -
Hope that helps!

Bad LED Screen

Yes the LCD screen can be repaired but this camera is a low cost camera but it may not be worth getting it repaired.
Take the camera to a digital camera repairer for a quote then you can decide whether to get it repaired or buy a new camera.

Can the LED screen be replaced?

This LCD screen has been hit by a hard object, that is why there is a black spot. You need the screen to be replaced, a digital camera repairer can fix the camera for you.

I have had my camera for about 4 years ( I think) It has suddenly gone weird. When I look thru the lens on any setting ,it is pink and purple and the images are disjointed,melting. Very psychedelic. It...

Is the LCD cracked anywhere?. If you send it to Panasonic, they will charge about $200 and not repair it. Instead, they will send you a refurbished replacement which may not be the same model as yours and gave someone else problems (which could still crop up at a later date.)...Your call. If the screen is indeed cracked, you can Google "how to replace the screen on a Lumix DMC-TZ3" and you will find instructions and places you can purchase a new screen for under $50.

I have a sanyo VPC-S120 Camera Problem, I took my camera out of my case and turned it on and the screen had a black spot and alot of small lines in the LCD anyone know where I can get it fixed or something

This is most probably as a result of a crack that might have happened while it was still packaged. In some cases, the crack is most likely to be on the main internal screen that displays and not just on the outer protective layer of glass which most people see to be the screen.
As rightly guessed by you, the LCD needs a quick replacement. You can fix it by visiting any nearby electronics shop or by sending it back to the factory for a swap or a repair.
If you happen to have any local electronics dealer, you should contact him and he should be able to help.
Also, if you can write down your residence area, i can provide you with a list of nearby service stores.
In summary, if you know any nearby electronics store, you can ask them to help you fix it or you can meet a nearby repairer of electronics or better still, write your area of residence so i can assist you with a complete list of certified service centers.
Hope this was helpful?

Purple spots appearing on all pictures

I think your lens are dirty. Buy lens cleaner from your nearest electronic store. Or do what I do, breath a mist on the lens and rub with a clean cloth. It always does a trick. Don't use glass cleaners.

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.

i cant suggest that you attempt to fix it yourself, is it possible the lcd screen is damaged? take it to a local camera or electronics shop and price check repair costs, you could also check ebay for a do-it-yourself repair setup.

Cracked screen

Didn't someone already take photos of San Diego? I swear I've seen it.

It depends on who has to fix it and how fast! Lindsey Lohan is fast, but charges a $1200 bench fee. You can check out HP Authorized Camera Repair for warrantee service but it's about as much as the camera price, from a $50 bench fee (pretty standard if it wasn't the Bay Area) to a part at an Official Price....

If you wanted to not fix it (and it works otherwise,) maybe you can get Gorilla Glue in there to passivate it so the black area doesn't spread quickly; put your subjects in the top/bottom/left/right third instead of dead on, so you can verify they weren't blinking etc. when you took the shot.

You might just be able to replace it with a workalike scrap unit or part off eBay or such; of course many people around you have disassembled a few digicams in their day and you can check out the MAKE community for hints on safe disassembly, if you can't just hang around in a camera repair shop 20min....
