White LCD Screen disolay.


Sadly it sounds like the screen has been broken, often times any white on an lcd screen mean that the liquid crystals have been damaged, most likely from dropping the camera or bumping it into something. I had the same thing happen to an old camera of mine. Sorry for the bad news, but it is probably just as or more expensive to fix the screen than it is to just buy a new camera unless it is a very expensive professional camera.

I dropped my slr camera and now the lens wont attach back on


Most likely. If the lens is from a major camera manufacturer, take it to an authorized repair shop and they can replace the mount. If it's a third-party lens then it may be more difficult.

If you want to do the replacement yourself, you may be able to find the appropriate part here. Since you declined to specify the make and model of the lens I'm afraid I can't tell you whether they have it or not, so you'll have to look yourself.

Camara wont turn on, led goes on for a few sconds and tuns off


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full charge. This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Ihave the same problem. Its annoying. When you turn it on does it make a buzzing noise? Cause that's what mine does. Except I never dropped my camera. It just goes to the Polaroid screen and then turns off. I'm wishing I wouldve bought a different camera :( Sorry I can't help..

Broken screen


First if you have a broke LCD " Cracked" than ok its bad.
but if the back-light is not working and you cannot see a image easily it most likely is something else.
  1. remove the case screws
  2. remove both sides of the case
  3. on the lens side their is a shinny black piece of tape VERY carefully remove it
  4. release the ribbon cables
  5. take off the battery door
  6. de-solider the red and black wires closes to the battery door REMEMBER how they go
  7. turn the camera over
  8. on the right hand side there it you control board or cable
  9. VERY VERY carefully pry up the control board it can rip very easily
  10. now you can remove your LCD you might have to pry it up CAREFULLY because it might be taped down.
Hope this helps It is not that easy to repair digital cameras if you feel unsure about the repair leave it to the experts it would only cost you around 85.00 + Shipping to have the camera fixed. I repair these all the time and Know it is not that easy to fix.

Wont turn on properly


Ive looked all over the internet for a solution to this very common problem. This is the only one that worked for me. When you turn on the camera the green led light comes on. Hold the camera in your right hand while you turn it on and as the lense comes out, bang the camera (lens facing down)against your left palm repeatedly until you notice the led light briefly turn red then green again. You need to do this every time you turn it on.I think shaking it loosens the jarred lens. This was the only solution I could find and although I was tentative about doing more damage this way, I tried it and it works.
