Jeez! You posted this in January! I wonder if this is even still an issue for you.

Well, what you DON'T do is take out absolutely every screw you can see and then pull the damn thing apart, nearly rendering it useless -- like someone I know nearly did....

I can only help you as far as getting the LCD off/exposed. I dropped my camera the other day and discovered my cracked LCD screen.

You say you've taken all 6 screws out. That's good. There are two MAIN (sort of hidden) screws on the bottom of the LCD screen itself -- these hold the frame of the LCD to the shell into which the frame fits. If you look closely at the LCD screen, you'll see there's a plastic frame around it. This is actually sunken into an outer shell which encases it.

Turn the LCD screen around so that the glass faces outward and fold it flat against the camera -- LCD facing outward instead of inward (the silver Panasonic logo should be against the camera body). Now you have a flat surface to work with.

The whole LCD screen mechanism is sandwiched around the pivot point. I took two flat blade eyeglass screwdrivers (you know, the real small kind) and started prying at the pivot point. As you work one bigger flat blade into the pivot point and pry up, use the other screw driver to keep the plastic frame still pryed up in place while you reposition the other screwdriver, continuing to "walk" the screwdrivers carefully around the perimeter of the frame. It won't be too long before you'll see that just off of each corner of this plastic frame there are small tabs which should easily pry away from the plastic "Panasonic logo" shell.

The LCD then sort of pops out of the shell and dangles by a ribbon connector.

I don't have any clue where to go from there, tho. I haven't purchased a replacement screen yet.

May I ask: Where did you buy your replacement LCD from? Do you know how to reattach a new one?

I hope this helped.

Thanks in advance!

I have a canon zr85 I bougt in 2004, after about a year the camera didnt have any video. I bought a new battery but that didnt help.The camera comes on but no picture

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and will require disassembling the camera to repair. The lens assembly will need to be removed, the old CCD de-soldered from the circuit board and a new one installed in its place. This can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on .

Hey, all.

I also have this problem, but have a little more to add:

Here is a website that carries the lcd screen:

I think that its the following part number:

$87.56 sucks, but it could be worse. Problem is now, I'm not sure how to replace it without taking the entire camera apart.

Let me know if someone does this successfully.

DXG-506V LCD comes on Blank White Screen

I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.

It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
