Well, as you can imagine, dropping the camera will almost always have bad results. Besides your cracked LCD, i think you might have a circuit problem.
In this case, it will be much cheaper to rather buy a new camera, rather than trying to repair the circuit. I need to mention that the if the LCD is broken, the camera will actually still function, so this informs us that the problem is not limited to the LCD.
Hope this can be of help.
Feel free to contact me if you need any further assistance.
I didn't find any information on the FAQ's about replacing the screen on the camera (lcd).
It's probably something that is done at their site, but it may turn out to be too expensive to do compared to buying a new camera. Technology keeps changing and getting better and better for a lower cost.
If ECONOMY is set to off in that case monitor (LCD) would be brightest, it should not be dark, it would be at lowest if you set it to LEVEL2. Monitor sub-menu in the setup menu gives you option to increase or decrease brightness of the monitor (LCD).
There is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of used parts for all the Panasonic Cameras at reasonable prices. I bought the LCD for mine and it works like new. I think his email is firstname.lastname@example.org
The Fx's have a common problem of internally cracking(even when you don't actually sit on them ;] ) which pana still won't recognize, so I've seen a few posts that sum up the following - nothing qouted less 200 $ by panasonic(repair), and the FX9 NEW today sells for 199$.
You could try and get a used FX8 from ebay thats all dead but the screen, but better check around first to see if you can find anyone to do the replacement for you. A talented all around computer tech, especially one thats good with laptops might get lucky with it.
It is a nice camera, I hope you work it out.
