Check and see if the camera still takes good pictures. Verify this by downloading them to your PC. If they look ok, most likely the problem is a defective LCD display.

The V603(6Mb), V803(8Mb) & V1003(10Mb) all use the same LCD display and these cameras have a k**wn problem with the display being delicate and easy to break. This camera should always be stored in a hard shell case. There is ** protective lens over the LCD display.

Sending the camera to Kodak is a gamble. If they they say its your fault, they won't pay and then they also have your camera, backing you into a corner. With LCD displays, they may say it had been dropped or abused. You have a better chance for them fixing it if the display is **t physically cracked.

Please read my article on this camera. You'll get a better sense of how much it really costs to fix it if you wanted to try and do it yourself. I've repaired several of these. It's **t hard to do.

Good luck!

Bad LED Screen


Yes the LCD screen can be repaired but this camera is a low cost camera but it may not be worth getting it repaired.
Take the camera to a digital camera repairer for a quote then you can decide whether to get it repaired or buy a new camera.

How to replace a defective LCD screen in a Kodak V803 Digital Camera


This tip is for Kodak V803 cameras that will take pictures fine but you can 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.

Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white


This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.

Screen problem??


This sounds like a cracked screen.. a leaf you say? is the leaf a graphic, perhaps an icon.. is it centered on the screen at all?

hmm....
I would take it to a certified repair center to see if they can replace the LCD panel.
Sounds like it needs to be replaced.

Fuji f700


I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
