  • spaa Sep 30, 2010

    again, many thanks Midwest-Tek, it works.
    but, probably during the reassembling did I something wrong because the memory card does'nt stay in place.
    No way to lock it, it jumps out of the card location.
    I don't see anything abnormal.
    Please help.
    thank you

I dont have an exact guide but there should be 5 screws to remove to take the camera apart. There is either 4 screws holding the lcd in place or 3 plastic clips. gently remove the ribbon cable that is attached to the lcd from the main board. Its actually pretty easy to to do. just becareful on not hitting any sensors. If you get stuck anywhere or cant find a screw let me know and ill try taking mine apart again and we can go from there. Thanks, Midwest-tek

    many thanks for your answer, Midwest-tek, but today i'm not so far
    I removed 6 ( 5 1 under the usb cap) screws but the right side ( battery side ) of the case remains locked.
    I'm afraid to break something if I force....!
    Is it something special to do to open it ??

    ok i dismantled mine its 7 screws 2 left 3 bottom and 2 on the right. I assume it will be the same for yours i dont know what generation mine is. But its a L15. then i had to pry open the case from the bottom left side. There was a little resistance. I just used a butter knife at the bottom left screen edge to pry it. then the screen is held by looks like 1 screw maybe 2. And the ribbon cable is on the bottom side it pops out pretty easy.

    also i forgot to add the risk of SEVERE flash capacitor electrical shock there is a capacitor in there and if you cross the terminals or mishandle it you can severely be electricuted. Like a powerful stun gun. So please be careful.

  • spaa Aug 31, 2010

    hurrah, I succeed to open the case, they are definitly only 6 screws, and as you said, a butter knife has been very helpfull....the conclusion is : we do have 2 differents generations of the L15. (by the way I'm belgian and that the reason for my poor english....)
    I also succeed to remove the screen from the support plate,no screws at all, but pieces of dubbel side glue-tape all around; not very easy to deal with, because each time you release your effort on one place for another it glues again !
    The support plate itself is fixed with 3 screws, but I suppose I don't have to remove it. As I din't red your last remark about the flash capacitor, I unfortunately experienced some electricals shocks, but I'm still alive.
    Now, if they are several generations of the same model L15, how can I be sure that the screen I should order will be the good one....?
    Do you have any suggestion about where to order it ?
    Many thanks again

  • schellens paul Sep 29, 2010

    dear Midwest-Tek, it seems that my last message to thank you has not arrived...
    Futhermore, my telephone line has been broken during a forthnight due to works in my street...
    Anyway, in the meantime I succeed to order a new screen on internet and I received it yesterday.
    Unfortunatelly, the flex ribbon cable of my broken lcd screen has a "S" shape, and the one I got
    has a "I" shape.
    So when i try to install it, a small portion of the cable remains visible and close to the left button of the navigator.
    If I switch the camera on whithout the backcover it works properly : the screen light on and the
    objective came out.
    But once the backcover is in place, nothing happen when I push on the main button.
    Do you have any suggestion to solve that problem ?
    Many thanks in advance
    best regards

    I've send 3 times the same message to thank you midvest-tek, but nione of them has arrived !
    It seems to go better now...
    The piece of tape has been very helpful, many thanks for the suggestion.
    But now that the camera is reassembled and works perfectly, I'm in trouble with the memory card : it don't stay locked !
    Do you know what it could be, and what do I have to do to solve it ?

Coolpix L15 broken inner screen ?


GENERAL, REPAIRS TO THESE TYPE CAMERAS ARE NOT COST FRIENDLY. THEY USUALLY HAVE TO BE MAILED TO A REPAIR CENTER, THE TIME FACTOR IS LONG AND THE COST IS USUALLY STEEP. REPAIRS ARE USUALLY NOT VERY EFFECTIVE, UNLESS THEY ARE FACTORY REFURB. UNITS. THESE ARE EXCELLENT. I WOULD SAY THAT YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE MONEY AHEAD TO JUST REPLACE THE CAMERA. SORRY, BUT MY RESEARCH HAS NOT POINTED TO REPAIR JOBS ON THINGS LIKE THIS. JUST NOT COST EFFECTIVE. HOPE THIS GIVES YOU SOME IDEAS.

LCD Screen Broken


In general yes, LCD components are replaceable. Your best bet is to contact a local Nikon repair service center: http://www.nikonlinks.com/resources_repair.html . The same goes for laptop screens, etc, etc. Yes they are replaceable. It's just not an easy task for the end user (you).

Good luck. Hope the info helps.
