Camera dropped all writing on lcd screen is reversed

I was bumped and my kodak C315 was dropped. When I turned it on all the writing on the LCD screen was reversed. And when you got to take a picture if you think you need to go right you have to go left etc. I went on Kodak's website and it will cost $69.00 + shipping the camera only cost $80.00 plus it still takes pictures fine. Can I fix this myslf?? yes I dropped my Kodak Easy ShareC875 and it is blurry and it turns off very quickly.

Re: Camera dropped all writing on lcd screen is reversed

These camera break very easy. If it was dropped, you are lucky it still takes pictures. I have dropped a few myself. I will cost you more to have it fixed and still there won't be any guarentees of operation. If it is new, take it back to the store and exchange it. Don't wait long. Some stores will only take it back up to 30 days. The company will replace it up to 90 days. It should say on the warrenty. It is best just to replace it if these other options are not available to you.

If this helps, please rate me. Thanks, Patty

Camera still takes pictures but LCD suddenly went dark. Battery works, camera turns on, camera was not dropped or damaged. LCD screen is intact. Time for new camera?

KODAK can repair this fault. However if OoW it will cost about 88 pounds. However KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic

It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!

Screen i broken

Yes it can be fixed.  Depending on where you live will depend on what you do next.  you can go to any phot repair shop and they will either have the part and can fix it there or they will need to send it out.

Either way, it'll be cheaper than buying a new camera.

Damaged LCD Screen

The following procedure works on the V1003. It uses the same LCD screen as the V803.

It would appear you have a damaged LCD screen. The same problem happened to my daughter's V803. The camera will take pictures fine but you will only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC. A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00. To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector. Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place. Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard. Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

Good Luck!

Camera dropped all writing on lcd screen is reversed

Wow, this is one that I've never come across before. To fix it you'll have to bite the bullet and using great care and light fingers dismantle the case of the camera. Look for the flat piece of plastic with small lines in it which enters the LCD (this is the wiring) make sure the other end is correctly connected to the board. These flat ribbon cables connect to small blocks of plastic and are retained by either another piece of plastic which you carefully lever off both ends and this leaves the cable easy to remove. Whatever you do don't force that plastic keeper too far or it'll just snap one end. The other way they can be retained is by a small plastic flap which locks over the top of the cable. To release it you'll need a small fine bladed screwdriver or blade. Just slip it under the edge of the flap and pry upwards. When it clicks upright you can just remove the cable. Take a look at the cable and make sure it's not fractured anywhere and then reinsert in it's holder and close the retainer. Just check there aren't two flat ribbon cables connected to the LCD. If there is, check them both. The shock may have knocked one of these cables loose so check them carefully. You may find another one which looks out of center, remove and replace it the same way. It doesn'[t sound as if you've damaged anything too bad as you'd get nothing at all. But it's still a weird fault. I wish I had it on the bench. I'd love to know what caused it. Whatever you do treat everything with kid gloves. The innards are very fragile. And if you can get it all back together without ending up with a spare screw or two you've done very well. BMW
