Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Powershot A85

My LCD screen is cracked. I have a warranty but am told that it doesn't cover "damage caused by the owner". So either I trash my camera or replace the screen myself. I was hoping someone could guide me as to where to purchase an LCD screen and how to replace it. They told me it would cause $25 to send it out and $260 to replace.

Problem is, that nobody that i know of makes a replacement screen for that camera. This means it is an OEM part (original equipment manufacturer) and so Canon is the only place to go for it. If that's the price they charge to fix it, then thats your only option. (as of now, sometimes people start making aftermarket parts for electronics, but digital cameras are usually easier to replace than repair.)

Is a cracked screen covered by the warranty?


Only if one of the following applies: 1. It was cracked when you took it out of the box. 2. You bought an extended warranty that specifically covers cracks in the screen caused by the owner.

The screen looks cracked and multi colored but the actual glass isnt broken or cracked


Your LCD/monitor is cracked from the inside. There are several things that can cause a screen to crack from the inside. The two most common are pressure on the screen or dropping the machine. Sorry, but it is irreparable. You need to buy a replacement.

LG 42" tv LCD pannels inside tv have a cracked


The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.

If you do a Google search for 'digital camera parts' the first listing is a website that can help you. The LCD is $45 with shipping.

The website name is: Darntoothysam com, then search by "A470" and you will see it.

Crack in the screen


Hey Petfrnd,

Typically manufacturers may consider problems such as cracked screens accidental or incidental damage, which is not generally covered under a manufacturer's warranty. The warranty itself may not always cite specific examples or explanations of each of the exclusions, and it may often be left to a repair technician to make the final determination on how damages may have occurred.

If you have lost your original owner's manual and documentation, you may always obtain a replacement copy by visiting Dynex's website, or by following this link:

http://www.dynexproducts.com/p-518-dynex-7-169-widescreen-portable-dvd-player.aspx

Remember that if you are unsure of what is covered and what is not, you can always contact Dynex directly for more information or speak with a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Lcd scrren blank on 4 month old nikon s200 coolpix


Sounds like Nikon are just trying to get out of fixing it.
Have you read the terms of the warranty. If the screen is not working then it is more than likely an electronic fault and they are covered by the warranty. The only way the screen would not be covered is if it was damaged by the owner. The screen is part of the camera and therefore comes under the warranty, unless it specifically states that it is not covered in the warranty. Ask a consumer rights department. Don't take no for an answer.
