Re: Cracked lcd

Well, there is a Powershot A520 on eBay right now that has a good LCD screen but does not work. It would be a good deal since a new part may be fairly expensive. Item number: 160196261124. You will need a good cross point screwdriver and tweezers to make this repair

My fiancee's a650is lcd is cracked and cam wont work

If you do a Google search for 'digital camera parts' the first listing is a website that can help you. The LCD repair package is $72 with return shipping of the camera to you.

The website name is: Darntoothysam com, then search by "A650" and you will see it.

How do I know this? I own the business, that's how. We specialize in LCD and lens repair for affordable prices. If we can help please let us know.

Help! Cracked LCD display on Canon Rebel xti

Had the same problem myself, I purchased a new lcd from ebay (user name: ProphotoSD). He has tons of factory LCD's, cost around 90$. Please note that if you cracked the clear cover above the lcd that is a separate piece however it wont effect the lcd working (this piece is also replaceable). Then I found a simple tutorial for disassembling the camera body on google. Took me like 25 min, very simple job, just need a very small phillips head screw driver. Hope this helps!

My screen is cracked

The camera will still work fine. The screen is only for framing your pictures and reviewing them. It will be hard to take pictures that way. Just get a new camera. It will be cheaper than repairing the screen.

Cracked LCD screen.

Well yes, you can. If you are comfortable with working with small circuits etc. You will need to contact Canon to get an LCD from them. I don't know the part number off hand. Simply ask for an LCD for your model. The price will be in the neighbourhood of $80.00. An easier way is to find a Canon authorized repair shop in your area and take it to them. They of course will charge you for their time as well as their time. But you will bet a guarantee, usually six months.

Canon A75 LCD Panel cracked

If you're willing to take the risk of tearing thin flexible circuits and are familiar with electronics, you can do it yourself. A new LCD is $55 and labor for us to install is $45.

"Oily" spots burnt into LCD

Sounds like a cracked LCD. That happened to my S400, and it was pretty evident the glass screen had broken. I bought a new one and installed it myself at a cost of under $40. Having a shop do the repair will cost quite a bit more. If you think this is the problem, do a Google search on "canon s400 lcd screen repair" and you'll find some resources to walk you through the ordering and replacement process.
