Removing the back to replace the LCD screen

Hi Please can you help me. I have removed all the retaining screws but the back is still attached at the top. Apparently there are 4 screws under the hot shoe plate. How do you remove the hot shoe plate to access the screws?

On top of the shoe is a thin piece of metal. Using a small screwdriver this can be gently levered up at the front edge and slid out. Then access to the 4 screws is possible.

Screen is black when i attempt to take pic


Hi,
Move all the pictures to the camera memory card from your internal memory. Since you have to open the camera, the pictures will be lost otherwise. Save your pictures. If you do not have a memory card, transfer all the pictures to your computer.
Remove batteries from the camera.

Purchase a replacement LCD screen, specific to your camera. These replacement screens can usually be purchased directly from Canon or from a camera resale shop. Auction websites should also carry LCD screens specific for these cameras. Use the mini screwdriver to remove the four screws from the back of the camera. Be careful with this step since the screws are tiny. Take the back cover of the camera off carefully. Inside the camera, there is a piece of foam that supports the LCD screen. Do not remove the foam. Set the bottom portion of the camera to the side.


Turn the top portion of the camera so it is facing upward. Notice how there are clips holding the LCD screen in place. Carefully lift these clips up and remove the broken LCD screen. The screen clips are extremely fragile and break easily if they are lifted too quickly. A gentle touch is key.Place the new screen down gently and replace the clips. Gently dust the screen so fingerprints are removed.Turn the top portion of the camera down so the screen is pointing down. Place this on top of the foam padding. Turn the screws carefully. The best way to screw the back of the camera in place is to first screw in one corner, move to the corner that is diagonally across and turn that screw. Repeat for the other two screws.Replace the batteries. Turn the camera on and see if it is function.

Thank you !!

Tip

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.

Finepix F40fd: Need instructions for changing LCD screen


Remove the battery and leave the door open. The door operates a micro switch to shut power off to the camera.
Once you have a tri-wing screw driver start by removing the three tri-wing screws first. These should be located on the side where the hand strap is attached. Then you can undo the rest of the screws ( 5 on the bottom and 2 on the other side). Now pull the cowl away from the side of the camera with the hand strap. It should just unclip when you pull it. This should reveal the side of the two outer cases. The rear case is still attached on this side by a small screw and two more on the top by the zoom / picture button. Once these are removed lift the rear case up from the other end first so that you can release the ribbon for the keypad or just flip it over so that it lays flat next to the camera but still attached by the ribbon. the screen should now be visible but you may have to flip this over so that you can remove the bracket for the screen (the socket is visible underneath it and you can remove the screen with the bracket inplace but I find it easier to remove the bracket).
Be very careful when you lift the bracket clear as it is close to the flash and while the camera is off (and with the battery removed and the door open) the flash is still charged and can give quite a shock!
Now all you have to do is release the locking tab on the socket for the screen and remove the ribbon and then replace with the new one. Then reassmble the camera

Digital camera won't take pic


HELLO NEWFIE,

YOUR CAMERA HAS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM THAT THE FE-210 HAS. YOU MUST PAINSTAKINGLY TAKE APART YOUR CAMERA PIECE BY PIECE. MAKE SURE TO CAREFULLY REMOVE THE SMALL SCREWS THAT ARE UNDER THE COVER PLATES FOR THE USB, VIDEO OUT AND DC INPUT SLOTS. ON THE RIBBON FOR THE FACE AND THE LCD, YOU MUST "LIFT UP" ON THE RIBBON LOCKS. SOME ARE BLACK AND LOOK LIKE A TAB AND SOME ARE WHITE AND LOOK LIKE A "PUSH IN" TYPE OF LOCK. THEY BOTH SWIVEL "UP", NOT PULL OUT!!! RETAIN THE WHITE LOCK AS IT WILL NEED TO BE PUT BACK IN THE SAME WAY. ONCE THE FRONT COVER IS OFF, REMOVE THE LCD THE SAME WAY. IT WILL HAVE 2 SCREWS IN OPP. CORNERS AND A RIBBON WITH A BLACK LOCK. ONCE THE LCD IS REMOVED, REMOVE THE MAIN BOARD BY REMOVING ALL OF THE SCREWS IN THE CORNERS AND THE ONES THAT HAVE "GOLD" AROUND THEM. THERE IS A SMALL SCREW UNDER THE DOOR FOR YOUR BATTERIES, DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE THIS ONE ALSO. NOW, LIFT THE MAIN BOARD UP SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE SMALL GOLD GEAR NEAR THE SHUTTER OPENING. TAKE A SMALL SCREW DRIVER, SUCH AS THE ONE YOU HAVE BEEN USING AND ROTATE THE GEAR. THIS WILL FIX YOUR PROB. NOW REVERSE THIS PROCESS AND YOU WILL BE UP AND SNAPPING.

Cracked screen


Cracked screens in the r707 is easy replacement. I just tend to swap screens from another r707 that has a lens issue. I have noticed that there is two types of LCDs in the r707 camera. One is easy type to replace because all it has is a serial cable that is attached circuit board. The other is a little harder because it has, besides the serial cable, two additional wires that are soldered to the board. The lcd is actually attached the black half of the camera's case. You will have to remove all of the screws and then remove the front (metallic) half of the camera. There are two cables that attached the camera circuit board. One is the LCD and the other is button/SD flash board; both of which are attached to the back half of the camera's case. Remove the back case and swap out the LCD and reattach everything in the reverse order of dissassembly.

How to replace LCD monitor/screen in an Olympus C5050 camera


Easy, remove the 9 screws that hold the rear case and pull the case apart,.remember there are 4 screws under the hotshoe base and 4 under the memory door and one under the USB cover. You need to pry and slide the hotshoe base back with a slim screwdriver and youll see 4 screws, remove the rear ones. There will be 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear case, the LCD and the buttons. These pull out carefully with gentle pressure. The LCD can be removed with screws and another ribbon cable connector that needs to be unclipped and then removed. replace LCD, Put it back together and make sure the ribbon cables are fully seated. Good to go.
