Sounds like the camera is a loss unless it has a viewfinder as well. It depends on the camera of course. If it is an expensive camera, you will want to get an estimate on having it repaired. If not, You might want to buy another, unless of course it does have a viewfinder as well as a screen from which you can take photos. So many other functions won't work however, without the screen.

If it looks like a crack, it is a crack. You may not feel it because the internal screen is protected by an outer screen. Pressure of some type is usually the cause of cracked screens. This is an expensive repair.

Unless it has recently been dropped or the screen cracked, the LCD power drive circuit has failed. Your batteries sound OK if it is taking pictures. 2 and a half years is not an unreasonable life for this camera. I would spend my money and time working toward a new one rather than repairs. Sometimes you can find one on Ebay for parts and may be worth a purchase but don't waste anything on a factory repair. Taking them apart and replacing components is not that difficult and procedures can be obtained online from digital camera REPAIR FORUMS.

Cracked screen


I'd stay away from some of the cheaper displays for these cameras. If you want to get the part and have it installed right or even do it yourself, try either www.camerasandparts.com or Canon themselves. They both have the part and both do the service, www.camerasandparts.com deals with the parts and service exclusively on the Canon Powershots, they are about half of what Canon wants for the service on these. Both places do very good work, it's just a little more expensive going directly with Canon.

Cracked LCD


Elas, How do you want me to help you. A cracked screen is a cracked screen. And you say that it does not help you take pics. Well. you are already doing the next best thing, ie, using the eyepiece. If you feel that is cumbersom then have the screen replaced. You may not be able to justify the crack, towards warranty.

It would appear you have a damaged LCD screen. The same problem happened to my daughter's V803. The camera will take pictures fine but you will only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC. A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00. To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector. Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place. Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard. Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

Good Luck!

No, I believe that screens are made of glass or plastic. If its broke, its broke. If you can see half, at least you can kind of frame shots. Then you can put them on your computer, as the screen will not affect this (unless whatever cracked the screen wrecked the photo-taking mechanism).

Broken screen


Sounds like the LCD. Setting anything next to it, bumping it may crack the screen
