    Thanks, where could I locate a part? Panasonic want $116 for a new LCD screen. Thats 1/2 the cost of the camera, I would like to repair rather than replace, smaller carbon footprint!



    Any low cost parts sources?

    I have the same problem. About a year ago my girlfriend dropped the camera in the bar and now 2/3 of the screen has white lines going through it. Everything else works fine.

    Tonight I took the back off the camera and checked it out. The LCD screen could be easily replaced, it is only attached with two ribbon cables.

    The problem is finding a low cost replacement screen. I checked ebay since parts usually go pretty cheap on there. Hoping to find something for around $10-20. But alas nothing.The problem is you can buy this camera used these days for around $50-100, so spending that much or more for just the LCD screen is not an option. My only other suggestion is to keep a look out on ebay or craigslist for a broken (for parts only) model where the LCD is still working. Otherwise, just buy a new camera.

I can tell you that the lcd backlight is working but the lcd is definetly damaged. if you can find it in you to purchase the lcd and fit it yourself then you could fit it yourself. if it becomes difficult then get a technician to fit it.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get...


FREE INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR CAMERA FIRST
The Stylus Tough-3000 can be submerged up to 10 feet underwater and incorporates four preset underwater scene modes as well as the ability to capture HD movies underwater. It can also withstand a five-foot drop and can still perform when the temperature dips well below freezing (14 degrees Fahrenheit; -10 degrees Celsius)
SOLUTION
1. Remove the SIM card , battery, and ensure that your camera is dry 2. reinstall the sim, battery, and if the battery has not been charged or is known to be used, please replace for a new one. 3. Start up your Camera and attempt to take a photo now without using any of the video features. If your still not registering your photos, return for continued assistance.

I dropped my FZ28 (about 3 feet onto a wood floor) but it seems fine (despite it totally stressing me out!). Is there anything particularly I should look out for? Any suggestions? I'm sincerely hoping that...


Hi,

The main thing would be to check if your lens is alright(no crack) if your picture quality is still the same and if all the buttons are working (zoom, menu etc). If all these are alright keep snapping those photos.

Cheers

Dropped the Camera, Lens is stuck open


I already tried posting this but I think it falied. Just in case, here it is again!

I just now fixed my own Nikon S220 (very similar to 210) which suffered the same fate as yours. However, I laid my camera down on a cushioned foot-rest (you could use a couch cushion or pillow on a table) with the lens facing UP, pressed down on both sides of lens front gently yet firmly, and BAM, the lens went back in all the way. I turned the power back on and the camera is good as new (except for the small dent from the fall of course).

I suggest you try this before spending $100 on repairs and/or buying a new camera!

Canon PowerShot Dropped: Blank Screen


For Ravi, this definitely sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/canon-digital-cameras-showing-black.html
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110
By the way, don't tell Canon that you dropped the camera. Sounds like the CCD imager was about to go bad anyway, and the drop just accelerated this.

Lines on screen


Hi, I have the same problem with my sony DSC-S700. I think someone drop it, and it took pictures with horizontal line specially outdoor. I noticed that the lens shutter does'nt open and close. All I did was to tap on the lens several times and everythings back to normal. I so happy my camera is working again. Thanks to your idea. Brenton
