Question about General Electric A950 Digital Camera
For sure, the LCD screen is damaged and will have to be replaced. Chances are that this will restore you camera's operation. You can change the LCD screen yourself, or have a shop do it. There are videos on YouTube that describe the process, and here is a video that explains the process, after you take the camera apart (usually 5 or 6 small phillips screws): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Mj3Qp3xYU&feature=fvw
One thing you have to be careful about is not coming into contact with the leads on the flash capacitor. It is a barrel shaped device, and will store a charge that won't really hurt you, but will startle you, possibly causing you to drop the camera. I discharge them with a screwdriver (placing it across the two leads of the capacitor, but you can tape them with electrical tape also, if you're unsure of how to do it, or aren't sure where they're at. The capacitor is connected hear the flash lens.
You can try to contact GE for a replacement screen (I couldn't find on on the net), but here's what I did with one camera I fixed. I bought an "as-is" same model camera with a good lcd, on ebay, and replaced my broken screen. The camera shop I called for a repair estimate quoted $125, and the camera for parts cost me $13. Otherwise, I would have just bought a new camera instead of having my old one repaired. If you do elect to have it repaired, get the estimate first, since you might opt to just buy a new one. Good luck, and hope this helps get your camera back into working condition.
