The problem with cracked LCDs is that it is often too expensive to have fixed by anyone, including the manufacturer.
As suggested, you can look on Ebay for instance and see what the camera is going for with the stuff you have for it. You can then set a price and sell it for parts, as is, or repair.
I have fixed quite a few cameras with a broken LCD screen when I could find another which is in the price range I am willing to pay, which had a good LCD. So setting a price may take some research. The LCDs I have found for replacement costs about $80.00 to over $100.00. That may suggest that you sell it for parts, and buy another one.
On Ebay this camera sells in new shape for about $200.00.

Nothing much for me to suggest except have screen fixed or if it's too expensive sell it to someone who might be able to use it for parts or whatever purpose. As Ihelpya suggested send it to Nikon. I think you should check your bag. I have had cameras packed in different types of bags. I have never had that problem. Basically because the cameras are always in their individual cases well protected. If you put your camera in a bag without protection, that is the probable cause of the screen getting busted. If you put it in a camera bag then take a look at what's on the side as there must be something that was touching the screen to cause the crack.

You would have to call Nikon and see what the manufactorer warranty is. Most likely you can send it to them for repair or replacement. Most likely it might cost you some $. You might want to research what the cost is and then make a decision on if its worth it to keep the camera or buy a different one.

My new nikon coolpix S8000 camera won't turn on. (did some 20 photos with it) Has tried another battery, another usbkabel, nohting helps, the green light doesnt work. USB via computer also dont work.


Make sure to shut the battery door! I had the same problem. The only way to access the a/v out is to open the battery door but you must shut the battery door or it won't charge

Cracked screen


Hi

The warranty covers manufacturing defects and such, camera stops working completely etc, cracked screen is not one of those things.

You must have dropped your purse or something must have pressed on the screen and caused it to crack.

I think they will charge you for a new screen.

Broken LCD screen on the inside


They will repair it for $50 if you send it in to them, otherwise you can probably get a screen on ebay.

My Camera Wont Turn On..


Will the camera lens come out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

Chances are the LCD screen has failed and would have to be replaced. (ive seen this screen problem when it goes to white or when cracked)

you basically would have 3 options,

1: send it out for repairs to Nikon? ( may cost close to what you paid)
2: Buy a used or new LCD on an auction site (if your gadget savvy and you can replace yourself or have someone do it for you) avg price $50-75?
3: sell your camera on an auction site to use funds to purchase another camera.

good luck

Lens Error


I have the same problem with my nikon coolpix s200. After 2 months the lens of my camera won't go inside. On the lcd screen stood lens error. I went to a shop with this problem. He took the battery out of my camera and press the off and on button for a while. Then he put the battery back in the camera and press the on button. The lens of the camera was now going inside en outside and inside and outside with a strange noise. And also on the screen stood lens error. Okey, the lens is inside the camera. But how can I fix this camera? What is the problem? What have you done? Please let know..!!

A cracked or ripped screen?


You have to contact Nikon to know where their service center is. They can replace the screen for you. I have no idea for the cost for the model of camera you have.

From what I have seen, for the average digital camera the part alone would be about $70 US to $90 US. There would be about 1 hour of labour.
