My husband borrowed my camera and accidentally dropped it on the floor. It hit tile flooring and the sliding cover that turns the camera on and off snapped off. The camera still works however, there is now a black line in the upper left and lower bottom corner. If I zoom in the line goes across the entire screen. What should I do to fix this or is it beyond repair now?

Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an
external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor,
friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be
any kind of monitor even the
old big fat
crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's
port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy
background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is
your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans
snowy background it means your video card inside the
computer has the issue.
The video will show
on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems
will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down
the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru
F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have
the icon of a display.
yes. this is a common fault with any phone that falls on the tile floor, especially if it lands using the screen(even if it doesnt, the screen might still be affected). the only solution is to send it to a repairer because it would require the attention of an expert due to the crack or damage done to the main display screen which in most cases would have to be replaced with a brand new one
