I am seeking instructions for replacing a cracked lcd in my camera, and save myself the $150 that canon wants to do this job. I have successfully, disassembled, repaired and reassembled laptop computers and camcorders which I own. Any ideas where I can find such instructions?

I also cracked my Canon Powershot A630 lcd screen by dropping the camera. I saw a suggestion to buy a new replacement lens and either have it professionally replaced or try it myself. I ended up doing the replacement myself following instructions I found online. Now it works. Total cost US $63.
I would not recommend trying the replacement yourself, however. There are a few very delicate plastic parts in there which I ended up damaging. Luckily the camera and lcd screen are working great now. But it is probably worth having a professional camera repair shop do the whole job or insert the screen you've purchased. Good luck!
Well, there is a Powershot A520 on eBay right now that has a good LCD screen but does not work. It would be a good deal since a new part may be fairly expensive. Item number: 160196261124. You will need a good cross point screwdriver and tweezers to make this repair
I have a "broken" A520 that needs a new LCD. I really don't want to spend another $90 to get it fixed so may be willing to sell it for parts. Let me know. I don't know about any guide for disassembly however.
