Question about Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

A cracked or ripped screen?

I accidentally left the flip screen facing out and put it in my purse. When I took it out to use, it looked like part of the screen was ripped or cracked from the inside, and the outside surface seems fine. There's nothing on the screen when I turn it on except for white, the black area with the crack/rip, and sometimes some random lines. When I put the pictures on my computer, they are normal

Is there a way to get just the screen fixed? If so, where, and approximately how much would it cost?

You have to contact Nikon to know where their service center is. They can replace the screen for you. I have no idea for the cost for the model of camera you have.

From what I have seen, for the average digital camera the part alone would be about $70 US to $90 US. There would be about 1 hour of labour.

start computer, right click on empty spot on desktop, choose screen resolution, left click and choose landscape on resulting screen, then click on flipped screen. Should go back to normal. This usually happens when you accidentally press alt ctrl arrow key.

This tip is for Kodak V803 cameras that will take pictures fine but you can only be able to see them if you download them onto a PC.

A replacement screen can be easily ordered and replaced. Call Eastman Kodak. Their parts department can be reached at (800) 431-7278 ext 3. Tell them the model number of your camera and tell them you want to order a LCD screen for it. The cost of the new screen is $31.00 + $15.00 shipping. Don't let them talk you into sending it back for repair. You are looking at a repair bill over $80.00.

To replace the screen, remove all of the small philips head screws that are in the chrome band that runs around the center ridge of the camera. After removing the screws, you will be able to separate the rear half of the camera from the front half. The LCD screen is pressed into a rubber gasket in the rear half of the camera. You will see that there is a small, flat orange ribbon cable that connects the old LCD screen to a black connector on the camera's motherboard. Using a VERY small flat blade screw driver, pry up the top tab on black connector. This will unlock the connector and allow you to remove the flat ribbon cable from the black connector.

Remember the orientation of the old screen and its cable as you will want to replaced the new screen and cable exactly the way the original was installed. Using the same small flat blade screw driver, pry out the old display. Install the new display into the rubber gasket into the back half of the camera. Insert the ribbon cable into the mother board's black connector and press down on the panel to lock the cable into place.

Lay the rear half of the camera face down on the table (rear buttons facing down) and place the front half of the camera over top of the rear half. This will allow you to put the camera back together and help prevent the new LCD screen from falling back out. The LCD screen has pads attached to the surface behind it. When you reinstall the front half of the camera, those pads help hold the LCD screen in place with pressure from the motherboard.

Replace all of the screws. If you did it correctly, the camera will operate like new. Last word of advice. Buy a padded hard shell case for this camera. These cameras are well known for LCD screen failures due to shocks and drops.

Cracked screen


Hi

The warranty covers manufacturing defects and such, camera stops working completely etc, cracked screen is not one of those things.

You must have dropped your purse or something must have pressed on the screen and caused it to crack.

I think they will charge you for a new screen.

When I flip the phone, the screen stays on the vertical view


My daughters phone had the same problem. It turned out that my very magnetic purse (which I had put her phone in) messed it up. I took the phone and reran it over the battery vertically and horizontally and it started to work instantly. I guess the phones are very sensitive to magnets (purses, money clips, phone cases/holster holders) so be careful. Hope this helps!!!

You accidentally flipped the cap over backwards when you were putting the male plug on. If you are using 568B standard that starts with orange/white and ends it brown...make sure that if the orange white is on the left, then the clip on the plug is facing away from you.
