The screen on the camera is white with a black shape that looks like a cracked windshield. It won't take pictures or progress past that screen. Any suggestions?

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.

If it looks like a crack, it is a crack. You may not feel it because the internal screen is protected by an outer screen. Pressure of some type is usually the cause of cracked screens. This is an expensive repair.

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(

Outdoor pictures give white display on screen


Go to the menus and reset to default or factory settings. Make sure that the white setting in the picture adjustments in the menus are set to zero or you may have to adjust + or - to get the normal effect again.
Test the camera by taking pictures and saving to a sd card. Then put the card in a card reader/writer which is connected to the computer. Copy the pictures or files to the computer and view them to see if they are in good shape or if there is some problem with exposure or the way it looks.
If the computer pictures show that they are good, and they are not showing good on the camera LCD, then the LCD has a problem, and is possibly either cracked or has some other display problem.
These LCD screens are not that hard to change if you are good at working with small items and screws. If you do this, make sure you have a way to remember where you got each screw, as they can vary in size and kind.

Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white


This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.

Screen problem??


This sounds like a cracked screen.. a leaf you say? is the leaf a graphic, perhaps an icon.. is it centered on the screen at all?

hmm....
I would take it to a certified repair center to see if they can replace the LCD panel.
Sounds like it needs to be replaced.

The lcd is cracked.need to know where to get it fixed.it is on the inside.it looks black and white and cracked


My screen is not "cracked" although it does look like its cracked in lower right corner. It's black on that side about 1/2" from edge althe way to the top an the other side is very shaded. This makes seeing the picture impossible to see with any clarity.
