    I actually purchased 2 fixer-upper A520s since my wife has one she really likes. One had a broken LCD - looks splintered but backlight works. The other had a problem with taking a photo consistently...poor connection on shutter release or whatever it is called today on a digital.

    What I really want is a good description of how to change out the LCD on this model Canon camera. Can anyone help me on this?

I bought a cobra camera at a yard sale and it has the cobra digital insignia in the view window and says it is busy. What is going on? Anything I can do to fix?


If you can get to the camera's menu do a factory default reset. Otherwise, if the memory card can be removed try another one and format it in the camera.

Hi i dropped my camera and now the screen does not come on and also it has a little white line on the screen..looks like a little crack in the corner


Hello

OK, firstly you will need to determine weather the camera itself is still taking photos. If so, then the problem is most likely a an internally cracked LCD. If the lens extends once you turn on the camera, we know the lens still works. If you can see any power indication, we know that the circuit is still working, hence the only fault can be with the screen.

So, follow the steps above to determine if the other components is still working, if it is, you will be able to replace the LCD screen at your nearest camera repair store for less than $40 labour included.

Please feel free to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

CRACKED SCREEN


You cannot repair the broken LCD screen; the white you are seeing is the backlight for it. LCDs have extremely thin gold deposits along one edge that is contacted by a silicone rubber strip that has fine wires molded into it vertically and one edge is pressed against the LCD panel for contact. It is a fussy arrangement when new and it sure doesn't get any better when dropped.
I wouldn't delay too long looking for parts or repair; Polaroid filed for bankruptcy last week although I doubt if the parent had anything to do with the manufacture of your camera; as with many companies with limited manufacturing means, the camera was surely built by others.

Cracked Camera


No easy fix. Pressure or impact is the usual cause of a cracked LCD. Try not to get the black stuff on anything....it's pretty toxic! The screen needs to be replaced (assuming there's no other, internal damage). They are usually in the range of $75 US.

Sony DSC-P200 Broken Screen


Your lcd is broken. If you can find a parts camera on ebay, you can follow the disassembly guide I am providing the link for, and replace the screen. I have followed the guide and completely disassembled mine, so I can tell you the guide is so good even a screwup like me can accomplish it. Shoot, I'd consider buying your camera for parts if you just want to be rid of it.
