    Our camera fell off a table and the screen cracked. How did it go with the $59 part and fixing it yourself?

    i got the same problem this is the second camera that it has happened to and they are both nikon coolpix. The newer one just cracked its a L18 3" screen. I am so mad because now my parents said they are not buying me a new one or any new electronics and my mom said that she was thinking of getting me a wii, but not anymore... >:(

    Same thing with me, was safely packed in suitcase but cracked on arrival after flight. Maybe air pressure? Nikon and the store I brought it from refuse to fix it which is rubbish of them. I'll be sure to tell everyone not to buy Nikon or from Currys.

    Anyhow, I'd be interested if you managed to fit that screen yourself? Nikon told me it's not something I could do as it has to be calibrated but I'm not sure if they were lying!

I just spent a whopping 10 minutes removing 6 small screws. I had to wrestle it a littl to seperate the case, but once open the screen lifts out. Attached to a ribbon cord. Carefully unlock the cord, replace LCD, reassemble. I'm seeing about $55 bucks for this screen. You can do it yourself.....Good luck.

The same thing happened to my 2 week old L18. I called the Nikon parts department and they want $59 for a replacement screen. I'll take the camera apart tonight and see if it is easy to replace.

In a word - you can't it is broken and it is likely the only way is to replace the camera - check out the makers website - customer support.

Is it worth fixing a broken LCD Screen on a Nikon Coolpix L18

That's up to you, of course. You can get a new screen here, but the cost is about the same as a used L18, and not that much less than a new L22 or L24. If it was me, I'd replace the L18 instead of repairing it.

Seems like a cracked screen on black blobs

When you were done downloading, did you use the "safely remove hardware" action or did you just yank out the cord?

My daughter has a Coolpix L18. She took it to the Mermaid Parade at Coney Island on a rainy day. Apparently, the camera got wet. Now when you turn it on, the screen is white. No image whatsoever. Does this...

Digital cameras as with any digital equipment is very sensitive to moisture and needs to be kept dry. If this happened recently (within the last 2 days) there could still be hope, remove the batteries and flashmemory card, with a hairdryer on GENTLE heat and from a distance of one foot direct the slightly heated air into the battery compartment for a few minutes, alternate by blowing air gently around the whole casing of the camera. Do not use very hot air as this WILL misform the plastics of the camera. Do this a few times , then charge the batteries again put in memory card and try again.

Camera will not turn back on

Some cameras require special higher voltage lithium batteries to operate. Try lithium batteries before you assume your camera is broken.
