@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!

Re: my screen is cracked

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.

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'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.

I have the same problem since yesterday! When I switched on the camera it shows only black screen with all the settings on it. I can change the settings and I can take a picture,but it will be only a absolutely black picture! :(
