How torReplace LCD display on Canon A640

Hi, last week I walked on my camera and since then the LCD screen doesn't work anymore. Precisely, there is an area of the screen that is black while the rest is white with some colourful lines. The camera is one year old. I enquired a shop in London and they asked for GBP 120 to carry out the replacement. The price to me sounds obscene, especially if you consider that you can buy the camera for less than £200. Do you think I can find someone which would do the repair for less? Do you think I can try to do it myself? Where can I buy a LCD screen?
thanks a lot

Hi there, you could buy the lcd panel from canon for about $50.00 but it is a little tricky to replace. If you do open the unit, discharge the flash capacitor first other wise you may be in for the shock of your life if you accidently touch it!

Lcd doesnt show any view


Hi there, Canon is having a problem with there ccd units on some models including this one. You could send it to canon or take it to a canon warranty depot and they could confirm that fault and repair it under warranty. As long as there is no impact damage, you should be ok.

LCD Screen not working, but camera still takes pictures


Looks like the contacts of the LCD of your camera are loose. Be advised that this repair would require you to take it apart and may vvoid your warranty. If there are no faulty contacts then you will have to replace the LCD screen. Should cost you around 100-150$

I have had my LCD screen go out in my small point and shoot as well, though i did not even bother with my company for the warranty was far expired.
You could do a couple things. You could buy an LCD screen off ebay, or anywhere you can find it relatively cheap. I have heard that these are fairly easy to replace yourself, though it is still a risk. If you do this, you must make sure it fits your camera exactly. And online "walk me through's" are everywhere about this kind of thing.
The other is to invest in a new camera. I mean, if this kind of thing happens again, you could almost buy a new camera.
Pressure is not the only thing that can damage an LCD screen, so always take care of it, and keep it in a case.

Black screen on my Canon PowerShot A640


I had this problem too. Try the "DISP" button (bottom left on the display side of the camera. It allows you several viewing options, and is easy to accidentally hit and turn the LCD screen "off."
