Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

3 Answers

LCD repair question.

Hi,
I recently bought an 'as-is' Samsung Digimax i5 camera off of e-bay, and am looking fruitlessly for the same brand of LCD screens. Mine is 2.5", and I know that OTHER camers have the same size LCD.

My question is, can I aquire a different brand camera, that has a working 2.5" LCD screen and pop it into my Samsung, or will it not be compatible because they come from two different companies?

    I've switched LCD screens on cameras before, so the actual switching isn't a problem for me. I just have never tried putting a different brand LCD into another one.

    It's not that I'd buy a whole new camera. There are auctions for broken cameras with intact LCD screens that range from .99 cents to a couple bucks. It would really save me a hell of a lot of money to fix this camera like that, instead of getting a whole new one.

    I understand your concern over ruining my camera by switching the LCD's myself, however.. That wasn't really my question.

    My question was, and I need a for sure or 99% positive answer, is can I switch LCD's with a different brand camera, or would it not work because they came from different companies?

The companies most of the time have different types of boards or cables.. and by trying to get the LCD screen you might accidently chip or cut the circuit then the whole camera is gone.. and if you buy a new comera why not use it... just continue using the new one.....

There might be a compatibility issue there, like on the position of the lcd matrix wirings... usually on the bottom left. its very hard to say that if you buy another cam with the same size of lcd, i myself would recommend it though, youll just be spending more if you do that. why not buy a replacement and try to install it yourself. that would save you a sum of money. but be careful as you might further damage your cam. just be careful.

    usually those wirings of the lcd are short not more than an inch, if you buy a diffent cam with same size lcd but from different brand, chances are it would be different internally.

    you see. even aother experts dont agree with that. dont waste your money and find a replacement or brand new camera instead.

Samsung i5 LCD screen is showing blank.


If you expose the camara to dampness, the screen will go blank. It may work eventually after it dries out. Check to make sure the batteries are good and installed properly.
