The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon connector between the LCD and the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Toshiba u845-s400 screen will not come on


Dave, Were you doing an upgrade when this happened ? For some reason the Video has gone down, can't tell if LCD went out or video card quit. Try hooking up external monitor and see what you get.

I dropped my z885 - now I have black screen and static. Fix or junk?


They are retailing for mid $200's. Even with either a LCD replacement (~$130) or Lens Assembly replacement ($110), it would be cheaper to repair than replace. Tough call though.

Regards,
Jacob

Your best option is buy a junk one off ebay and replace LCD. LCD replacement is very straight forward, just remove the screws, pry the case apart and the rest will be easy. Use the one you buy off ebay and practice getting it apart.

Broken lcd on camera model kodak z1285


Have you thought about buying a "junk" one just to have parts for? Maybe place an add in the paper for one with a busted zoom lense for the screen? Or maybe search for a company that deals in "salvage", kind of like a junk yard for camera's.

Screen is Blank..


A sudden jolt like that can damage the working parts of the lens, and or the internal connections. What can happen is that the small connectors can become unhooked and lose conductivity. If that happens, then you various controls or all controls will quit.
Because the screen is blank or black, it could also mean that the LCD is broken.

DSC-S500 LCD Screen needed


Hi guys, got some info for replacemnet LCD screen for Sony Cybershot. Why go used when you can buy new fairly cheap? First make sure that it is the screen that you need and **t the rear cover (is it scratched? if so you don't need a screen, you need the rear cover). This number is for Canada (but there must be a US one too).
1-877-779-9929. This is the parts warehouse for Sony (also k**wn as MTC), the part numbers and costs follow:
LCD Screen part **: A-1209-107-A about $70.00 Can.
Rear Cover Assembly part **: X-2149-431-1 about $40.00 Can.
Be extra careful when popping the dial off of the top, there is a small spring underneath. You will have to remove this in order to gain access to the 2 screws to remove the trim (about 4 screws hold the back cover together) then to the inside of the camera, then it's straight forward. I intend to keep my extra screen for a replacement as it seems there could be a potential problem with these, good luck on your finds.

"Oily" spots burnt into LCD


Sounds like a cracked LCD. That happened to my S400, and it was pretty evident the glass screen had broken. I bought a new one and installed it myself at a cost of under $40. Having a shop do the repair will cost quite a bit more. If you think this is the problem, do a Google search on "canon s400 lcd screen repair" and you'll find some resources to walk you through the ordering and replacement process.
