Question about Nikon COOLPIX L5 Digital Camera
Have a Nikon Coolpix L5. Monotor is broken I believe. Can I repair this myself by ordering a new LCD monotor and replacing it?

I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.
Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.

i had someone with the same camera have a problem like yours but it wouldnt turn off and the only way to power the camera on was pressing the power and blue play button. i called nicon and they said try a reset all in the setup menu but this didnt work. i then played for a little longer with it and found if i gentally twisted the body of the camera it would turn on and off as per it should. so i removed the back of the camera ( coution very small screws) and found that the blur control ribbon cable for the top control board had come loose.take something non conductive and not sharp and carfully push the ribbon cable back into is socket. once i had done this everything worked ok.
a few other words of caution while doing this keep track of where the screws come from as they are different lenghts.do not have the batterys in the camera as the flash caps will be charged and if you touch the wrong thing ZAP you could get a nice supprise. and finally when repacing the back of the camera make sure the selector switch for movie , scene and camera is connected right otherwise you will have to remove the back again and fix this issue
i hope this works for you

Most cameras are not that hard, if you are careful and willing to make notes of where each screw came from.
Be sure to get the correct screwdriver to fit the screws correctly and use enough pressure directly to loosen each screw...this is quite important, because if you strip the screw's head, it can be messy.
Most LCD screens are directly under the back cover, and can be replaced usually, once the back is off, remove three or four screw which will hold the LCD frame on. Once that is loosened, then you can carefully remove the screen and see if you need to remove anything else before loosening the cable plug. Take care here, because there are a few different ways these cables may be connected. Some are simply pushed into a connector. Some have a socket which has locks which must be loosened to remove the cable. These little sliding plug connectors are delicate, so you must take it slow and not rush the job. Some of these fold up to loosen, some simply slide away a bit to loosen the plug lock.
Most anyone who has done any delicate work on anything electronic will understand what I am talking about here.
A repair manual may be able to be downloaded for free, but you may have to be a member (usually free) in order to download manuals. Some may charge a small fee for the pdf file.
Hope it all works okay.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the suggestions and help. It worked."
There are a few different things it could be though most likely the lens itself is out of alignment. There are methods you can try to "click" it back into place. First off how long have you owned the camera?
