While I was driving, the camera was crunched by the shift lever. The LCD display cracked, and no longer works. The camera is functional otherwise--still takes pictures, just can't see them on the LCD.
Does anyone know how to get the camera apart to replace the LCD display?
Does Fuji sell the LCD as a replacement part?
Cousin dropped it and the LCD broke. I can still take pictures with it but I can't view them. It was a Christmas present and I can't tell my parents because they'd either get real mad or sad cuz we are low on $$ so I'm looking for someone who can fix it. Or just an extra screen.

A cracked LCD cannot be repaired, only replaced. Given the age of the camera (yes, I have one of these too) I suspect it will be cheaper and much easier to replace the whole camera rather than trying to get the LCD replaced.
if its the screen (LCD) and if its cracked (may show black spots and colorful lines) then you can do 2 things, 1. get a new camera 2. get a new screen for it and install it (you probaly can get a screen on ebay, but it requires opening up the camera and working on the components on the inside, its not that hard to do, but if you dont have experince with working on electronics, i would have someone replace the screen or simply buy a new camera from the store or even ebay
As you suspect, this simply does not happen unless the LCD panel has had a physical impact. The LCD units are stress tested when manufactured and the odd ones which crack "all of a sudden" would do so within a few months of manufacture and then get replaced under manufacturer's warranty. The broken glass which you see is the cracked LCD unit and it's behind an outer plastic protective cover.
The only way to fix it is to replace the LCD panel, but it's not a DIY job and repairs will cost more than the camera is worth. The M637 will only be about two years old but it was a budget model to start with so it would be cheaper to buy a fully functional used equivalent camera. There are even brand new models of similar or better specification which will be cheaper than a repair.
If the camera works "as is" then it may be better to put up with the fault until the camera no longer works.
Are the images also black when you look at them with your computer? If not your screen is either broken or no longer connected properly. The LCD screen can be replaced by a tech savy user and the part is
available on common auction websites. There are also independent Camera Repair places that carry the part - Camera Repair NYC
You can replace the lcd screen although you do need to be careful. You camera has a flash capacitor that contains 300 volts and if you short it out you can easily fry the camera circuitry. You can check on ebay for an lcd or call fuji usa. I will warn you though their parts department isn't the most helpful.
Explain how broken
Does the Screen display anything?
If it does but is cracked then clear tape will fix it.
If it is 'dead' then nothing will fix it and no repair I would think is possible.
But to be sure check your local web site for repairers or even Canon - but possibly not in Bangla
You should find it easy to pull apart if you take your time and find all the screws. Just don't use brute force or a hammer:-)
Maybe a friend can help you if you feel wary. Once the back is off be carefull there may be cables connected to it so don't get carried away. Often the LCD is lying on top of the remainder of the camera and sometimes it's attached the rear of the camera. You'll know as soon as you get it open.
Find the screws retaining the LCD and remove them. You may find some adhesive tape holding the LCD down too. Carefully remove this and keep it.The LCD will have one, maybe two flat ribbon cables protuding from it. To disconnect these the sockets they are attached to will have either a tiny plastic flap across the top of the cable holding it down and if it's one of these then carefully pry the flap up with a thin blade. If it doesn't have a flap the you'll notice a different coloured piece of plastic rinning under the cable with very small protusions at each end. With a small screwdiver you should be able ease these protusions away from the socket. Do one end and then the other but don't push too far. This will loosen the cable and you can pull it out.
You will probably find two standard type wires coming out of the LCD as well. If you're lucky they terminate in a plug which is easily removable. If not they will be soldered to a PC board. Do a rough drawing of the board and mark where which coloured wire is soldered.
For a replacement you can try Fuji but if you think the cost is over the top take a look at Ebay and see if there's the same type camera as yours which is being sold for parts or repair. If you do find one make sure the LCD is intact and bid away on it. Ebay is a goldmine of spare parts and I've used it many times to get cheaper parts for myself. EG a cmplete camera with broken lens for less than Sony wanted for freight for the part I needed. If you don't find one wait a few weeks and one may turn up.
When you get the replacement use your memory and put it all back together without ending up with a spare screw or two. Good luck.
