How to replace lcd screen in Canon 20d

Hello, i recently dropped my camera and the lcd screen was broken. the camera works fine, it just won't display, all i see is a cracked screen partly white partly dark. so i ordered the lcd screen from canon parts for $75. now that i have it. what is the best way to install it. i have a photoshoot soon and can't afford to have it sent away for 3-4 weeks. i have not been able to find much information about the process online. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rear lcd screen black in shooting mode but works fine in playback


Solved the problem by going to the Canon product support site. It seems that there is no problem at all. The way the camera is designed is the problem. To be able to use the rear display lcd as a view finder, the camera needs to be able to lift the mirror to allow the sensors to pick up the image and display it on the screen. The 20D does not have this abilitiy. Apparently some later models do allow you to raise the mirror. It was this feature on those models that led me to believe that the 20D should do this too.

Buy and replace broken lcd screen


You may be able to fix it yourself if you can find a replacement screen, and you have some basic experience and are comfortable with electronics. Usually there's no soldering involved, with replacement merely requiring unplugging and reinserting the screens ribbon cable in it's connector. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement:

Canon EOS 20D shutter error


Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed


Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:

Hope this helps!

Canun digital camera powershot A630 lcd screen blank


I also cracked my Canon Powershot A630 lcd screen by dropping the camera. I saw a suggestion to buy a new replacement lens and either have it professionally replaced or try it myself. I ended up doing the replacement myself following instructions I found online. Now it works. Total cost US $63.

I would not recommend trying the replacement yourself, however. There are a few very delicate plastic parts in there which I ended up damaging. Luckily the camera and lcd screen are working great now. But it is probably worth having a professional camera repair shop do the whole job or insert the screen you've purchased. Good luck!

If you can get a replacement screen (ebay from a broken camera with working LCD screen?), it's not too hard:

EOS 20D - LCD dead??


So far this year we have repaired 4 Canon 20D's with this problem and it always is either the Main PCB ( the interface IC which controls the main display and which sits on the main board shuts down ) or the LCD monitor that have to be replaced so your camera has to go to Canon I am afraid ( ask for a quote as this is a relatively expensive repair ). The fault BTW cannot be caused by using non Canon lenses.

Connection Problem


I too have a Canon 20D and receive the same message. Zoombrowser works fine with my Canon G3, so the way I get around this problem is by using the other software that came with the 20D called EOS Viewer. This software will download your images every time. You might try sending a note to Canon's support team on the Canon website. They are very quick to respond to all questions and they can probably respond to this question too. Good luck!
