Hi I have the Av700.
one day I turned it one and I found a crack in the LCD (not a scrach but an internal crack). It might happned from a shock or somthing the dvice might sufferd.
The problem is that I bought it in the US and I don't live in the US. So when I contacted Archos they said that I can fix it only through the place I bought it. So...
Since I don't travel alot to the US (and using fedex is I've decided to open the device and fix it by myself (I'm an enginner). After tons of screws I got to the LCD and I found the part number of it. (Toshiba LTA070B34AA). Now the problem is how to buy one of those LCD.
Toshiba sais they can't sell single unit (only mass quantities). Archos don't wan't to sell replacement parts also (they are not nice at all..).
So if anyone has an idea how to get this LCD this will be more then helpful!

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.
Hi, most screen problems usually happen after a fall or a knock against a solid object. There are two things that might have happened here. One might be, the screen got a hairline crack and the connection to the lcd is broken. The other is that the lcd did not crack, but the connector flex cable is disconnected. The first requires a replacement lcd. The second requires an inspection to see if the flex is disconnected or broken. (You will have to open the phone). If you cannot DIY, then take it to a repair shop. Replacement lcd can be found on ebay.
The glass of the lcd screen is not cracked, but internally the display is'nt working perfect, few lines are not displayed on the screen which makes us to assume that the screen is cracked which is not the case, you need to replace the display, it its one or two lines you can use the same display screen, their won't be any damage to your phone due to non display of few lines.
It would physically be in the LCD screen of your computer. If the monitor is working fine therefore there is nothing wrong with the video processing output or the drivers in the operating system. It would be in internal crack on the LCD or a loose connection with the LCD screen and the motherboard.
Its best to have your laptop checked by a service technician and dont just disassemble it by yourself to prevent accidents. Worst case is that the LCD needs to be replaced if really found cracked/defective.
Hope this helps.
the crack that you see is an internal crack. this may solve your problem. turn camera off, take out battery and memory card then after 10 secs replace battery with a fully charged one. do not insert memory card. turn cam on and check if you still have the internal crack, if it is not resolved, send cam in for repair
LCD screens are monolithic (one piece) components. They cannot be repaired, they can be replaced. One site I found for replacement info is http://www.screentekinc.com, they even have DIY info if you are so inclined. There are many other sites; do a search on "lcd repair"
