I can hear camera take multiple pictures in burst mode.I think it is still working. But the screen shows nothing and there is noview finder on this camera.

The screen is fully damaged. You will have to get it replaced. Prior to that click a few snaps and transfer them to yous PC and check whether all the images are sharp and do not show any problem. Cause the service centre might try to get more money from you saying a different problem was found. If the images are fine. dont forget to mention the same to the service centre people.

The screen on my zeepad jellybean 7.0 cracked how do i know if i need a new lcd display. I already purchased the digitized touch screen replacement


tha't an easy task to handle
See the pictures below
if your whole screen shows an image and the cracks are in front of it then its just a cracked digitiser
if you dont see the whole image and tyou see horizontal and vertical line or an image like spilled liquid then your Lcd is also cracked too


92dabd2f-7f4a-4795-976d-d97d7e32fa0e.jpgthis is a broken Lcd (the screen is distorted by the lines or no picture at all)


83952950-d5b2-47e3-b228-81f41d0190af.jpgthis is just a broken digitiser (the screen below the broken glass works fine )

hope that was helpful

The lcd has vertical green lines on it and horizontal black lines at the bottom of the screen . i haven't dropped it or spilled anything on it. i charged the battery but needed the camera before it was...


Hundreds of lines on the lcd screen invariably means a crack. Panasonic charges $192+ and then they don't really fix it...they give you a refurbished camera from someone else.

Blue vertical line on LCD screen


Thus meaning what display on the LCD is exactly what "enters" through the lens. Is this a hairline or thick line appearing on the LCD and does the same happen on the photos/pictures when they are downloaded on a PC? If so "something" could have infiltrated into/onto the camera lens....

Olympus FE-270 has a grey LCD screen, with vertical lines.


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.
http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $87.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Vertical lines obscuring image


The matrix is dead. Probably because of an intensive light got into the lense while the camera was in night mode. It's dead. Nothing can be done.

Lines across the LCD screen


Two things can cause lines across the LCD either horizontal or vertically. The first (and most likely) is a small crack in the display wafer. LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. They are very fragile and can be easily damaged if dropped. I broke one in my pants pocket.

The second would be if a pin on the ribbon cable (to the LDC wafer) was not making good contact. If you disassemble the camera it is possible to clean the contacts using contact cleaner (or alcohol). Only attempt this is you are willing to replace the camera if you don’t put it back together properly.

DX6440 LCD screen is Black


As I suspected, the flexible circuit board which connects the fluorescent back light to the power source was severed. Although it didn't appear broken at first, the LCD came on as I poked the flex board. I removed a small amount of insulation and reconnected the two copper leads. Problem solved.
The flex board I speak of is an amber colored ribbon; it can withstand high temperatures and is quite durable. There are two copper leads embedded in the ribbon. One end of the ribbon is sealed within the LCD, the other end terminates in a locking surface mount connector. You can unlock the connector by pulling back on the little brown latch. If you have a severed flex board, be extremely careful in repairing the connection. Once you begin removing the amber coating, it becomes fragile.
