Might be easier to swap hard disks rather than screens. Usually, Connect to PC indicates a faulty hard disk.

This can be checked as follows:

Connect HDD player to mains adaptor and plug in.

Connect to PC.

As player starts up, press and hold "Power On" and "Vol +" at the same time until screen goes blank.

Quickly press and hold "Vol -" until PC recognises player as a removable drive.

If the player shows up and allows access as a removable drive (E: F: G: H:.... etc) then the drive is ok, and the unit probably has a corrupt firmware, which can be corrected.

If the player shows as a removable drive but you get an error when trying to access it via "My Computer" , then the hard disk is probably faulty.

Back cover removal:

You need to make sure the two black screws either side of the connector have been taken out.

The back panel has clips on both sides.

Volume side - 1 at the bottom, and 1 next to the volume control

Opposite side - 1 at the top and 1 at the bottom.

Try sliding a metal strip ( about 5mm wide) in at these points.

If the strip doesn't slide in, gently lever the casing apart at the corner with a flat blade screwdriver.
Hard Disk Removal: Undo the four screws in the corners of the metal plate, and gently remove the plate and the connector surround. Gently lift out the hard disk by pulling the blue rubber protector upwards on the opposite end to the hard disk connection. Gently pull the hard disk away from the connection by pulling slightly one side at a time. Swap drives and re-assemble.

no available replacement part in market but you might find a knowledgable electronics technician who may have kept a faulty/defective similar player but with a good working may ask him to swap it with your broken screen for a price.

Hello, The screen of my landtop samsung N150 has been broken just this morning, there is a mark black in the midel of it. I need repair it o change it as soon as posible. I bought it in spain 5 months...

I cannot advise you on your repair options except to contact a Samsung dealer or website. Screens however are expensive so you may decide a new PC is a better option. Or you can order a screen from the likes of ebay and attach it yourself or with the help of a tech genius if any! It can be done but is not an easy task.

Meanwhile you can connect your computer to an external monitor. Then press the Fn key in combination with one of the F keys at the top row it should bring the image to the monitor bypassing the broken screen. That way you can access your files and use the software.

Another thing you can do is take out the hard disc from your broken PC and use it as an external hard disc from inside a case connected by USB. But this way you can only access files not run Windows or programs. Good luck.

Broken Screen of my laptop Levono

There are a lot of screens on eBay. Type in "T61 screen" in the eBay search, and a whole list of them will pop up. eBay is normally cheapest. Screens can be easily swapped out with a small Phillips screw driver, and normally takes about 10 minutes.

I have a Jornada 680. My screen is blank even after changing the back up battery and performing both a soft reboot and a hard reboot.

It could possbily be a loose connector or more likely its a broken flexi PCA. You could try swapping the screens with another Jornada, by buying a faulty one off of ebay that doesn't have a faulty screen.

LG shine broken lcd screen


I have seen lots of LCD Screens cracked or broken on an LG Shine. A replacement screen can be bought for around $20 from Ebay. And the process of replacing it yourself if rather simple. All you need are a small philips screwdriver and a plastic tab (guitar pick) or a fingernail.

Here are two links that will help you out. The first is a guide that will show you step by step how it's done. And the second is a good link for buying replacement LCD Screens to replace your broken one.

unfortunately it would appear to be a CCD or main board failure.
If the camera is out of warranty (as this should be covered) my best suggestion is to pick up one off ebay with a broken screen and put your screen in it, broken screens are common on these cameras so they go quite cheaply, far cheaper than kodak would charge for repair and the swap is easy.
There are several searchs to try "parts v1003" "spares v1003" "Faulty v1003" "repair v1003"

Best of luck
