I'm trying to replace the top door on the handle

Hi well to do this you need a service manual, these have exploded diagrams and circuits and schematics too, for your exact make and model, these can usually be obtained via the 'net or through a direct approach to the manufacturer or agent. I have had a search for one but have been unable to find any for free but there is a buy link below too ...? Also accordingly i give you a link, so you can contact the manufacturers agent, to hopefully obtain one?

well it seems there may indeed be a FREE manual at this link below... good luck.

Lcd screen is damaged (smeary and doesn't clean). Maybe caused by fingers of young children. Looks like simple two screw replacement.Is replacing this feasible? Is so where do I find replacement parts.

Buy a used camera (sold for parts, with good LCD) through If you try to buy the LCD by itself, usually it is expensive. A camera can be bought for under $15. Buy a jewellers screwdriver set for $1 from Dollar store.

Look at the following web sites to get an idea how to replace LCD.
Try your luck.

The lcd screen on my canon xha1 is displaying everything upside down, why is this and how do I fix it?

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective component on the flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to usually be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Computer cannot detect camera. Is there a setting I need to change?

usually there is software installed that you use to run the camera on the PC. Uninstall it. DO NOT have camera connected. Install software AND DRIVER FIRST. Then reboot and connect camera. it should then find new hardware and you can operate as before.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

LCD is not working after connecting the camera to the TV screen

Sounds like maybe the video out socket is stuck, damaged or dirty, without opening the camera you could try inserting the video jack a number of times and give it a gentle wiggle.
Also resetting the camera to default settings may help.. beyond that its in need of repair.

Best of luck
