    I bought a GS39 miniDV on ebay and the LCD was completely cracked.. it looks like it is splattering from every corner. I want to buy a replacement, but I don't know where I can go to obtain it. I have looked online and found nothing. Please share some sources!

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!

USB Ports require replacement

Unless your good with a soldering iron. Take it to a repair shop. If you are good then you have to take it apart down to the point that you can get at the motherboard. De-solder the broken usb and replace it with the new one you bought. Up to you.

My santos de cartier band got broken; I spoke to Cartier and they told me if I return the broken band they will supply me with a new one within 2 months but I am horified by the price. It will cost me $au...

Cartier is not the only company playing this game. Rolex invented the trade in game and now other high end Swiss brands are jumping on board.

Because you need or want the genuine band you have to put up with their game.

Sorry this isn't better news.

Do i have to flash a new dvd rom drive if i replace it with an old brioken 1 on the xbox 360?

Not if you have the same model. Meaning if it's a Samsung, you replace it with a Samsung. Or a Liteon with a LiteOn.

All you have to do is take apart the drives and swap the circuit boards. They are on the bottom of the drive and it's not difficult.

If you need to buy a drive, I recommend They are about $30 there.

I repair them, so I'm sure about this.
