If you do a Google search for 'digital camera parts' the first listing is a website that can help you. The LCD is $70 with shipping.

The website name is: Darntoothysam com, then search by "S3 IS" and you will see it.

Sorry to say your LCD screen is cracked, it happens a lot with the Sony DSLR-A300 and A350. The solution is to remove the cracked LCD and replace it with a new one. The repair isn't that difficult, but you have to be careful removing the LCD or you will break a latch holds two FPC cables together and then will have to replace yet another part that takes MUCH more labor.

I did a Google search for "sony a300 lcd repair" and at #2 I saw an online digital camera repair shop that has done tons of this repair over the last few years.

Hope this helps!

I purchased a samsung ES70 compact digital camera last year and lately a black line has appeared across the bottom of the screen, could I get rid of it or would i have to purchase a new camera?


Hi,

If the line is only on the display and not also on the photos when you download them to the pc, then you only need to have the LCD display replaced. The screen should cost like ~$20 as you can see here: http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/307874294-Replacement-Camera-LCD-Screen-display-for-Samsung-Digimax-S630-S730-S750-D75-NEW-Free-Shipping-wholesalers.html

Digital camera screen broken


A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.

Help! Cracked LCD display on Canon Rebel xti


Had the same problem myself, I purchased a new lcd from ebay (user name: ProphotoSD). He has tons of factory LCD's, cost around 90$. Please note that if you cracked the clear cover above the lcd that is a separate piece however it wont effect the lcd working (this piece is also replaceable). Then I found a simple tutorial for disassembling the camera body on google. Took me like 25 min, very simple job, just need a very small phillips head screw driver. Hope this helps!

I crushed the screen of my Canon Powershot SD450 camera. Pls. estimate cost of screen repair. Is it on the screen thats cracked cozi can still take photos but cant see them.


Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean

I have a kodak c613


Well, when it comes to quality electronics, I would not recommend WalMart. They have a terrible likeness to "toss" stuff around. What is sounds like to me is that your LCD screen is either cracked or not connected to the circut board correctly or at all possibly. If there is a across your LCD display your LCD needs to be replaced. I've bought them before on Ebay for about $50. Don't try to replace this yourself. Most camera shops will replace the LCD for you for a few hours of labor. Before purchasing a new LCD make sure that the lense is not covered. It could be that your LCD is working, but the view finder is covered. With Black Shapes on your LCD mean that someone or something has put too much pressure on the screen itself. Doing so will almost imobalize the coponents needs to display a full photo. Sadly, this also means the LCD needs to be replaced.
Hope I helped.

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!

LCD display cracked


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.
