Question about Fuji FinePix A400 Digital Camera
I just bought it, 4/06, with extended an warranty which does not cover LCD problems. I, of course, did nothing wrong. This was early 7/06. Had it in a fat, quilted carrier, etc. and never dropped, etc. The LCD is much too delicate, as I am reading online at various sites. All whining aside, the camera was $149 and the repairs promise to = $250+ , so, I must repair it myself. Where do I buy a replacement LCD screen for my Fuji FinePix A400? AND, most importantly, where can I find a HOW TO page for replacing it, with photos, if possible. I went to Peter Bagnall's self camera fix site for repairing another kind of camera and it has photos that I might use, but first I need to find a replacement LCD screen. Help, I am an old woman who can do miracles with a cup of tea and some time and patience and tiny screw drivers and some "how to print out". Thanks if you can help and RATS, and gosh darnit, if no one can. The Cavewoman writes and having writ, moves on.
Buy202.com is a scam. I sent my Casio EX-S600 camera to them to repair the lcd screen and they not only didn't repair it, but lost it. They do not return any calls or emails, and we stopped at their 'advertised address' in Columbus, Ohio and it is boarded up. We have reported their owners, Josh McVey and Reverend David, to the Better Business Bureau.

I just went on ebay and there are guys that will fix it and send it back to you for 90 bucks. Not bad.

To avoid paying OEM prices for a replacement screen I purchase appropriate broken cameras off eBay and swap the LCDs. This will require a certain level of repair expertise. I just did this for a F700 (twice) . It did require a special tri wing screwdriver to take it apart.

Hi everyone, I know many posts on blogs when i was looking to replace my casio lcd and every site i looked at for the replacement lcd was so high priced, and there was no way i would pay how much they wanted so i was going to buy a new camera.

Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair

I have just done this very thing. I ordered a new replacement OEM LCD from a seller in the US listed on E-Bay. Even with postage it was a third of the cost of sending the camera to Fujifilm for repair (and Fujifilm wanted a couple of quid less than buying a whole new camera!). To Dismantle the FujiFim S5800 and get the back off the camera you need to remove 5 screws, and dont mix them up as they are different lengths. I used a set of those small jewellers screwdrivers to do this. Make sure you have taken the battery's out and taken the carrying strap off. First remove the screw on the side just above the flap where the memory storage card goes. On the opposite side of the camera where the carrying strap bracket is you will find two screws in the recess, just remove the one screw nearest the back of the camera. Now turn the camera up-side-down. You will find 4 screws around the threaded hole for a Tripod. Remove the two nearest the back of the camera (they are also the widest apart). Now open the battery hatch and remove the screw nearest the outer edge of the camera which is effectively below the memory storage hatch. The back of the camera should now be easy to lift away and reveal the LCD screen. Be careful as there is a small semi transparent printed circuit cable that connects the rotary switch to the main body of the camera. I chose to leave this in place as I was reluctant to remove more parts than necessary - however if you choose to leave it in place be sure support the the back bit of the camera as you do not want to strain rip or excessively twist this cable. The LCD screen rests in place between some guides and had a small piece of black tape holding the end down at the ribbon cable end. Use the blade of one of the screw drivers to lift the corner of the tape away. and you can lift the LCD screen up. The Ribbon Cable looks like a push fit but in fact there is a tiny black hinged section holding it in place. Be very careful and lift this up and the old cable can be released and removed. You will find the same system holding the cable in place for the rotary switch so if you want to give yourself working room you could disconnect that in this manner. Fitting is now a reversal of the removal process. Put the ribbon cable into the socket as far as it will go, No force will be required. Clip the tiny black hinged section down and this will lock the cable in place. Re-assemble the camera and remember to fit the memory storage hatch while doing so. Note: the storage hatch has a small plastic lug that presses a switch. When the hatch is opened it cuts the camera off (personaly I think this is a bit of weak point in this camera's design, if this lug or switch wears or breaks the camera is not going to work - but that is by the by for now). Presumably this is so you don't add or remove memory cards while the camera is powered up. This means it is difficult to test the new screen without putting the camera back together. But all being well you should be back up and running. Just take your time, study all the parts first and you should be ok. Don't come crying to me though if you break it - remember all repairs are carried out at your own risk.

Remove the 2 screws on the side,
Remove the 3 screws in the buttom. (2 of which are tri-wing)
Remove the 2 screws in the battery compartment.
Flip out the chrome side (from the front backwards)
Remove the 2 screws underneath the chrome side.
Turn the camera upside down. You can now flip the backcover down (gently lift the cover, both on the mid by the tripd hole and on the side, where the crome plate was) Watch out for the USB connector.
Gently lift the broken LCD out. You need to release (flip up) the tiny white lock on the connector to release the ribbon.
Assembly same procedure, but backwards.
Beware of the flash components. The can give a nasty electrical chock.
