Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Kodak Easyshare Z1275 which my son forced into my wife's handbag breaking the screen. I have heard the screens are relatively inexpensive to buy for self repair. Could you tell me where to purchase a screen and some instruction on how to fit the sreen. Thanks...

I don't know about kodak, but the screens I have checked on are really expensive, like in the range of $65.00 and up. I would contact Kodak support at their web site, they have it available.

SOURCE: INFO ON REPLACEMENT DIGITAL CAMERA SCREEN

Screens for the Z1275 can be found on Ebay for as little as $20 w/shipping. The rear case of the camera is held in place with 5 screws, one of which is under the left side panel (looking from the rear). Make sure the battery and SD card are removed before starting. Remove the right side panel by removing the two black screws and by opening the battery door it will help give you access to lift it away. Remove one chrome screw on the bottom back and one black screw the bottom left holding the left side panel in place. Slide the left side panel downward and remove the last screw underneath. The rear case is now held in place by several snap-fit points around the edge. Using a small nylon pry tool, strong fingernail, or a small flat screwdriver, work your way around the case and carefully pry the sides and bottom enough to release the rear case. Once the back is removed you can release the LCD from its frame by gently prying the frame around the LCD and lifting it up to gain access to the ribbon cables attaching it to the circuit board. The larger cable is held in place by a locking bar on the socket that has to be lifted to release it. Using care not to break it, pry the bar up so that it pivots 90 degrees. The smaller cable uses a slider that can be released by pushing the two tabs on either side of the socket toward the cable until it stops (only a millimeter or two). At this point the cables should slide out quite easily. Reverse the procedure to install the replacement LCD.

The back screen on my kodak C743 is malfunctioning


You are correct. The LCD screen is broken. This is super common with the C743. It is unprotected and unlike most LCD's, there is no hard plastic or glass screen over the LCD. My wife broke my son's 1st 743 when she left it in her bag. My son broke the second one by packing it in his duffle bag for a summer camp trip.

You can spend about $40 for a replacement that will probably break again, move on to another camera or use this as a "green mode only" point and shoot camera just like the old days where you don't know what you got until you get home. You can still hook it up to your TV set to change the settings and review your pics, but that's all you are left with.

BROKEN LCD KODAK Z1275- NEED INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPLACE


The LCD is pretty east to replace once you remove the case screws the case will separate with a little force make sure you mark down the screw "possion". This can be crucial now once the case is off. be careful the LCD can have 2 wires and a ribbon cable or 2 ribbon cables or just 1 ribbon cable. their will be a latch at the end of the ribbon cable lift it up and remove the ribbon cable if their are 2 do the same to both. if their are soldiered wires make sure you remember witch potion they were in. and put the new LCD in the same way you took the other one out. OH YEAH WATCH OUT FOR THE FLASH COMPOSITOR. It can bit like a starving dog on a steak bone. 300 volts is enough bite to make you through the camera across the room LOL take it from me I know LOL. Well just reverse the steps and you should be ok. Hope this helps.
