Broken ribbon cable cause key pad not functioning, you may need contact and order a key unit from fujifilm spare parts and replace it to solve the problem.

You can find a replacement LCD on eBay right now. The item number is: 220270433760 Alternately, you could purchase a broken one with a good LCD.

Apart from taking it to a qualified technician and paying the big bucks (ha,ha), there are a number of vendors online who will sell you a 'new' screen ranging in price from about US $27 up to US $75. I ordered a lower end version which just arrived from Hong Kong. Unfortunately I discovered I need a micro tri-point (as in three wings) screwdriver to open it up. That's available also for about US $13. With time and perseverance I can probably get the camera apart & replace the LCD, but of course there's no guarantee it will work... I'll be optimistic and say it will. All said, I expect to have it fixed at a cost of about US $50, saving myself maybe US $30 for all my time and trouble. Hmmm... a new Z10 (which is now out of production) would cost me a little over US $100, which begs the question is it worth it? I hate to waste so I'll say yes (if it works), otherwise just get the pros to fix it and save yourself a lot of grief.

I have just done this very thing. I ordered a new replacement OEM LCD from a seller in the US listed on E-Bay. Even with postage it was a third of the cost of sending the camera to Fujifilm for repair (and Fujifilm wanted a couple of quid less than buying a whole new camera!). To Dismantle the FujiFim S5800 and get the back off the camera you need to remove 5 screws, and dont mix them up as they are different lengths. I used a set of those small jewellers screwdrivers to do this. Make sure you have taken the battery's out and taken the carrying strap off. First remove the screw on the side just above the flap where the memory storage card goes. On the opposite side of the camera where the carrying strap bracket is you will find two screws in the recess, just remove the one screw nearest the back of the camera. Now turn the camera up-side-down. You will find 4 screws around the threaded hole for a Tripod. Remove the two nearest the back of the camera (they are also the widest apart). Now open the battery hatch and remove the screw nearest the outer edge of the camera which is effectively below the memory storage hatch. The back of the camera should now be easy to lift away and reveal the LCD screen. Be careful as there is a small semi transparent printed circuit cable that connects the rotary switch to the main body of the camera. I chose to leave this in place as I was reluctant to remove more parts than necessary - however if you choose to leave it in place be sure support the the back bit of the camera as you do not want to strain rip or excessively twist this cable. The LCD screen rests in place between some guides and had a small piece of black tape holding the end down at the ribbon cable end. Use the blade of one of the screw drivers to lift the corner of the tape away. and you can lift the LCD screen up. The Ribbon Cable looks like a push fit but in fact there is a tiny black hinged section holding it in place. Be very careful and lift this up and the old cable can be released and removed. You will find the same system holding the cable in place for the rotary switch so if you want to give yourself working room you could disconnect that in this manner. Fitting is now a reversal of the removal process. Put the ribbon cable into the socket as far as it will go, No force will be required. Clip the tiny black hinged section down and this will lock the cable in place. Re-assemble the camera and remember to fit the memory storage hatch while doing so. Note: the storage hatch has a small plastic lug that presses a switch. When the hatch is opened it cuts the camera off (personaly I think this is a bit of weak point in this camera's design, if this lug or switch wears or breaks the camera is not going to work - but that is by the by for now). Presumably this is so you don't add or remove memory cards while the camera is powered up. This means it is difficult to test the new screen without putting the camera back together. But all being well you should be back up and running. Just take your time, study all the parts first and you should be ok. Don't come crying to me though if you break it - remember all repairs are carried out at your own risk.

The You-Tube video is useful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dP0Yr4YXM9Y
Care must be taken when removing the ribbon-cable connector from its mating half on the camera ribbon-cable.
The black strip on the mating connector has to be flipped back, away from the display ribbon, to release the display ribbon.
Then after locating the new ribbon fully home, the same black strip has to be flipped forward in the direction of the display ribbon and pressed down to clamp this connector in place. All this is shown, but quickly in the video.
Do not touch the bare surface of the new display or the inside surface of the removed display protective surface which has an optical coating which easly shows fingerprints.
