Broken screen I have a cracked screen, how I don't know - everything else works fine! What are my options for replacing as I expect sending it back to Nikon would be too expensive. Many thanks

I bought another camera on ebay - a Canon Ixus 400 for less than it would probably cost me to have repaired!

Canon SX30: The zoom function that used to work. Now it has become unpredictable. Sometimes pushing the zoom lever gets no response. Other times after it has zoomed out it immediately goes back. ...


I was initially going to say this sounded rather like a switch error but I'm thinking this is a motherboard problem inside the camera.

A switch will either work or not. When they break they tend to stay in the on or off mode or in this case zoom or not. The fact that the camera is unzooming itself suggests to me that there is a signal or command if you will coming from the main board. I'm curious if the camera will even take pictures as this almost sounds like behaviour I would expect to see when turning the camera on.

Unfortunately I do not see any other option other than sending it in to Canon for repair. If you have warranty they will of course repair or replace the boards inside or even the switch. If you don't have warranty you need to be cautious about any repair costs. The camera is selling for about $450 and depending on what needs to be done and if Canon is offering a flat repair fee for this now then you can get them to fix or replace it. I've not had to replace a board in this model so I don;t know what the cost would be. It can be more than the camera is worth which is why you need to be cautious.

I've used Canons all my life and Canon support has always been fantastic. So I would call the store you purchased and see if you have any warranty either extended store warranty or just Canons. They will probably know if Canon has any repair deals but I wouldn't hesitate to contact Canon support. They may ask you to try a few things over the phone before sending it in. Make sure you ask about any fixed repair fee if it is available. If not keep in mind the repair verses replacement cost before spending any money. I don't work for Canon but have used their cameras for years and anytime I have had problems they have always done more than I expected. A couple of examples was asking about a driver for a used camera and they sending a new driver cd at no charge. They even repaired a camera that was just out of warranty at no charge. Canon will treat you right so don't hesitate to call them.

I CANT SEE MY SCREEN ON MY PHONE


What kind of phone?
It will help to put your model here.
With out the model, we are somewhat lost.
General ideas....
Make sure the battery is charged.
Go to the menu options and make sure the LCD is on, if there is an option to shut off the lcd.
The screen LCD may be broken or cracked.
One way to test for a cracked or broken screen is to put it in the sunlight with the power off. Slowly turn the phone from side to side and up and down looking at the screen. If it is broken or cracked you may see a difference in coloring of the surface under the glass or plastic cover.

If the phone works at all, and if you have a camera on it. take a picture, then down load it to your computer to view it. If the picture takes okay, then your lcd is either broken or cracked or disconnected within the phone, or some cable could be loose as well.
Anyway, hope it works.

The LCD got cracked every thing else works fine when linked to aTV.The screen is easy to replace,but I can't get a spare one


Sorry, but Kodak is the only source for new parts for their cameras, and they do their best to also be the only repair location. You can send it into Kodak for expensive repairs, or you can check sources such as eBay for a cheap, broken camera with an intact screen.

Cracked screen


send it for service to samsung. try to do this:

-go to samsungcamerausa.com
-click on customer service
on the upper right portion of website
-provide product code and e-mail address
-provide all other necessary information
in registration process
-take note of service center address
-read all shipping reminders
-send camera to service center address provided

they will be the one to replace the scren for your camera and if your camera is unrepairable, they will be sending you a new camera for replacemnt, but that is if your camera is still under their warranty. had tried that option and my camera is now working perfectly fine.
