I have an inside contact with the leading digital camera mfr - and NO it's not Sony, as I buy NOTHING with that name on it because of their POOR Customer Srv Dept rapport. Sony is all but TOO proprietary with everything they make. You buy their products - you have no choice but to have them service it is how it pretty much works out. Not only that - you have to pay up front a SERVICE FEE just for them to TOUCH it. Just the way they are!

I will check on MON with my contact if getting a full service repair manual is even possibly with them. If it is I know for fact it will be expensive no doubt.

I almost hate to say it but I don't think one is going to be available to an end user DIY like you possibly are. A camera service center YES. Comes from my prior career days working inside a major hospital as a BMET repair Tech. Medical equipment was very complex and the service manuals for said equipment had to be the same as to detail & calibration of whatever we worked on.

I will post my results on MON.

If you have the camera mfr name and model # it would help out.

Regards,

Frank

    A MONDAY followup:



    Just as I thought - you are not going to be able to purchase a factory
    repair/service manual for your camera (brand name still unknown).



    I contacted my inside source at my camera's Corp offices and spoke to
    the Tech support service dept VP of operations there, and just as I
    suspected in my initial post reply - a full on service manual is not
    available to the public end user. To a factory repair facility or to an
    authorized repair center YES. So that was the end of that subject, as
    related to customer warranty and mfr LIABILITY issues.



    Your only option at this point is to take the camera into a proper
    camera service/repair center, or else the mfr's factory service center
    itself.



    Check in your owners manual for repair/service centers near your city in which you live.



    Trying to fix any camera without proper training or proper repair tools will only destroy the camera worse.



    I once tore apart 2 older broken Olympus C-2500 & C-3030 digital cameras and it was NO small task let me tell you.



    At one point on the trashed C-2500 I just decided the time I was
    wasting just to open up the camera for damage inspection wasn't worth
    it.



    I'm very good at opening and closing stuff - if for no other reason only for the purpose of looking inside for whatever reason.



    Cameras are like fine watches and need to be repaired by factory
    trained experts - which I am not. There are limits to what anyone can
    do fixing stuff, and I know better when to take my cameras into the
    repair shop/facility.



    I hope these guidelines help you make a wise decision.



    Best regards,



    Frank

My Nikon N50's LCD panel does not work. Everything else works fine; theflash, shutter everything. Help Me Please?


Possible failure of the display unit of the camera is the picture taken is sowing good image after downloading on the PC.
If so the panel must be taken out and checked for voltage on the pad, the flexible strip that connects the display also can be faulty.
You will need to have some experience to open and probe into the display unit.

Sony DSC-T70 still takes pictures but screen off


Since you've already swapped the screen, it looks like there is an issue with your logic board. However many times ebay vendors send you a screen that will fit but is incompatible, so I wouldn't exclude that possibility. I work for Sony Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

Nikon Coolpix S210 lcd broken - need step by step instructions


Most cameras are not that hard, if you are careful and willing to make notes of where each screw came from.
Be sure to get the correct screwdriver to fit the screws correctly and use enough pressure directly to loosen each screw...this is quite important, because if you strip the screw's head, it can be messy.
Most LCD screens are directly under the back cover, and can be replaced usually, once the back is off, remove three or four screw which will hold the LCD frame on. Once that is loosened, then you can carefully remove the screen and see if you need to remove anything else before loosening the cable plug. Take care here, because there are a few different ways these cables may be connected. Some are simply pushed into a connector. Some have a socket which has locks which must be loosened to remove the cable. These little sliding plug connectors are delicate, so you must take it slow and not rush the job. Some of these fold up to loosen, some simply slide away a bit to loosen the plug lock.
Most anyone who has done any delicate work on anything electronic will understand what I am talking about here.
A repair manual may be able to be downloaded for free, but you may have to be a member (usually free) in order to download manuals. Some may charge a small fee for the pdf file.
Hope it all works okay.

Sony DSC-W70 LCD Problem


You will need to describe what you see on the LCD in more detail in order for me to tell you what the problem is. There are two different issues that can cause things like what you are seeing. 1: Cracked LCD. You will see lines which resemble cracked glass. You will see bright vivid colors with specks of black or stark white all over. The image problems may be only in one portion of the screen. The LCD is made of glass, so if you look closely and see patterns that look like broken glass - this is your issue. Replace the LCD. 2: Bad LCD connection. You will see distorted colors, the screen may blank out and flicker when you shake the camera or press on the housing near the screen. If neither of these describe what you are seeing, post back and give more details and I will respond further. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
