Re: lcd screen broken
I don't know what area you live in, but you can usually get a list of authorized service centers in your area from the manufacturer if you call them. You can also bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out to get looked at by an authorized service technician. I will tell you though that digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the product, but it's worth a try.

Unfortunately I would be pretty sure that the warranty wouldnt cover the cost of your screen as it would come under misuse... ie: you broke it dropped it caught it damaged it ?. and not covered under electronic breakdown or fair wear and tear , however dont despair a replacement screen is not that much and fitting it is relatively simple with the right tools and a steady hand and good eyesight ..Cost of a replacement is available on the Olympus website .. however if the screen just stopped working and you didn't break it then yes it would be covered under warranty ..

You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.
Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is usually beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.
Sounds like the LCD screen is damaged or the cable was dislodged. Its hard to say if it's broken or not without seeing it myself.... Can you see the menus or nothing at all?
You can try unplugging the cable for the LCD and then plugging it back in, or see if you can get an LCD and install it yourself.
If you don't want to do the repair yourself I'm sure we can help you, we are an affordable digital camera repair business. Feel free to check our site for your model number and you will find your LCD. If you don't see it then let us know and we will add it if we can get it from our overseas supplier.
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.
wow! good luck...
I would say the manufacturer would be your best bet to order from. i don't know how LCD screens are but i do know that most camera parts are pretty touchy for being with their own counterparts.
I've tried camera repair, man it is intricate!
once again, GOOD LUCK
