I recently went to use my s5000 and I can't get my lcd to work. The eye piece evf is fine but I have been spoiled for to long. Is there a way to easily fix this, sucj as a light bulb or something. Or should I just use the eye piece viewfinder. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: LCD Panel doesn't work
It's amazing how a given day concentrates the exact same questions... one ady all the cellphones drop in a cup of coffee, and another everybody is pushed into a pool with their camera, and now everyones camera LCD is gone.
Either the connection to your LCD was cut off, or the backlight went.
Both shouldn't be expensive repairs, but with digital cameras I wouldn't be surprised if you get qouted with the usual 150 $ flat rate. The LCD is auxiliary i think, it's not like the lens mechanism or CCD died, and probably the screen doesn't need replacing, just the backlight.
Get an estimate, if you're asking, then probably you won't be able to do it yourself(unless you find a step by step guide, and a good parts source).

Does the EVF work? The small view finder above the LCD screen. You can switch to it using the EVF/LCD button on the right side above the main display. If it is okay then you'll likely need a replacement LCD.
On the back there should be a small button above and to the right of the LCD screen that says EVF/LCD. You might try pressing it to change it, this is provided you can see through the viewfinder already.
The only thing you can do is take or send the camera to an AUTHORIZED service center for replacement of the LCD screen. If you can live with just using the viewfinder, like in the old days, the LCD being broken should not effect the camera operation. Set the selection to the EVF (electronic view finder) position and this will stop the LCD screen from coming on. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck.

i was told by fuji it is the ccd or cmos sensor effectively the eye of the camera it is faulty and needs replacement fuji said it would cost £90 to replace as the newer model of the fuji is only 145 i opted to buy a new camera so i bought i differant brand and am very happy with my dmc tz3
