Please state the make and model. But if it is any Vivitar model then like all budget tripods spares simply aren't available.

You either make a claim under the manufacturer's one year warranty or you chuck away your tripod and buy either another budget model or invest in a quality brand which does have spares support.

The only other option is to see if a friend or relative has an engineering workshop and can fabricate spare parts for you from scratch. It's likely to be a straightforward job, but not one which is worth paying for.

I'm looking for an elevator crank handle for a slik master classic tripod 6857u


By elevator crank handle I presume you mean the centre column adjuster. May be available from the manufacturer or importer, otherwise try Ebay or your local friendly camera service centre.

Not sure if this one works with your model exactly(doesn't have the "se" in the model number) but worth a try.

Replacing LDC screen on Fuji Z10FD camera


Probably, yes.
Remove the 2 screws on the side,
Remove the 3 screws in the buttom. (2 of which are tri-wing)
Remove the 2 screws in the battery compartment.
Flip out the chrome side (from the front backwards)
Remove the 2 screws underneath the chrome side.
Turn the camera upside down. You can now flip the backcover down (gently lift the cover, both on the mid by the tripd hole and on the side, where the crome plate was) Watch out for the USB connector.
Gently lift the broken LCD out. You need to release (flip up) the tiny white lock on the connector to release the ribbon.
Assembly same procedure, but backwards.
Beware of the flash components. The can give a nasty electrical chock.
