    My brother-in-law dropped our D-Snap and now the screen is cracked. I can't remotely see what the camera is looking at. Is there a replacement screen available? I hate to pay for 'evaluation' and then be told repair costs are not worth it. Help! thanks, Adam

@jkm77: I don't agree with your statement "Just get a new camera. It will be cheaper than repairing the screen."

I own a Canon Ixus 400 whose screen cracked some time ago. Googling in internet led me to a page where a step-by-step instruction to replace the display was shown.

Cost for a new lcd: 18€ plus shipping cost.
Time needed to fix the problem: 30 minutes!

The camera will still work fine. The screen is only for framing your pictures and reviewing them. It will be hard to take pictures that way. Just get a new camera. It will be cheaper than repairing the screen.

When i take a picture, my picture comes out black the camera turns on fine, batteries are charged and everything. but the screen is black. it acts as if it was going to take a picture but the screen does...


Your camera may be manifesting shutter not opening problem. It needs to get to a camera service/repair shop.

However, it's good you physically check whether the lens isn't blocked or covered with anything

Hi There, If your screen still lights up, sounds like the LCD Panel is cracked.

Wont take pictures when i press the button


Ours is doing the same thing except we aren't in warranty. Had the camera 6 months and Sanyo wants $85 to fix it. I'll never buy Sanyo again. Take it back while you still can.

Cracked Camera


No easy fix. Pressure or impact is the usual cause of a cracked LCD. Try not to get the black stuff on anything....it's pretty toxic! The screen needs to be replaced (assuming there's no other, internal damage). They are usually in the range of $75 US.
