You should find it easy to pull apart if you take your time and find all the screws. Just don't use brute force or a hammer:-) Maybe a friend can help you if you feel wary. Once the back is off be carefull there may be cables connected to it so don't get carried away. Often the LCD is lying on top of the remainder of the camera and sometimes it's attached the rear of the camera. You'll know as soon as you get it open. Find the screws retaining the LCD and remove them. You may find some adhesive tape holding the LCD down too. Carefully remove this and keep it.The LCD will have one, maybe two flat ribbon cables protuding from it. To disconnect these the sockets they are attached to will have either a tiny plastic flap across the top of the cable holding it down and if it's one of these then carefully pry the flap up with a thin blade. If it doesn't have a flap the you'll notice a different coloured piece of plastic rinning under the cable with very small protusions at each end. With a small screwdiver you should be able ease these protusions away from the socket. Do one end and then the other but don't push too far. This will loosen the cable and you can pull it out. You will probably find two standard type wires coming out of the LCD as well. If you're lucky they terminate in a plug which is easily removable. If not they will be soldered to a PC board. Do a rough drawing of the board and mark where which coloured wire is soldered. For a replacement you can try Fuji but if you think the cost is over the top take a look at Ebay and see if there's the same type camera as yours which is being sold for parts or repair. If you do find one make sure the LCD is intact and bid away on it. Ebay is a goldmine of spare parts and I've used it many times to get cheaper parts for myself. EG a cmplete camera with broken lens for less than Sony wanted for freight for the part I needed. If you don't find one wait a few weeks and one may turn up. When you get the replacement use your memory and put it all back together without ending up with a spare screw or two. Good luck. BMW

Dropped Nikon Camera Sadness

Hi Al
not sure if i can help here but will try.
Ive not owned the D50 but i have the feeling the highlights function is similar to other cameras in the Nikon range.

On your cursor when viewing an image, just press down on the cursor maybe once or twice to remove the highlights .This is just a pointer for you like the histogram.

Now it seems like you may have damaged the sensor and will not collect enough light.

Try setting the camera to A = aperture priority and take a shot in bright flash.

Are the images still dark ?

If so raise your iso to 800 and shutter speed to 1/250 at F5.6 aperture in mode S =shutter priority and take the shot in bright conditions.

Are the shots still dark ?

Fuji Finepix F450 broken LCD

Possibly search ebay for broken cameras of the same make or replacement parts. Fuji's contact center may sell parts or possibly fix your camera for free.

Nikon D50 lcd problem

I'm sure that the auction/sale has ended for this, but I'll go ahead and answer it. Yes, it could be a simple loose/broken cable. But when it comes to cameras, is that a good thing? Something had to jar that cable. Nikon builds are strong, possibly the strongest. The guy who owns that camera was probably very rough with it, and therefore MUCH more could possibly be wrong it (fractures, scratches, etc.)

I bought my d50 used, but the guy I bought it from was smart enough to take SEVERAL pictures, including that of the glass, the mirror, display, everything. I had the option of buying a d50 for $150, and all it had wrong with it was a crack going along the outside of the analog lcd and down part of the camera. Problem was, how hard did he drop it? He might have even knocked the internals around!

Save yourself headaches, and most probably expensive future investments, and be sure what you're buying is in mint condition (body scratches and general wear on rubber grips, etc. aside). Most people who own SLRs (with exceptions to some professionals) cradle their cameras like it's their baby.

Lcd monitor/display broken

Call the manufacture of the camera to see if they will sell you spare parts. Most, and including their authorized service reps will not sell directly to an end user. They have some lagitimate policies about why they will not. It is more than simply making money fixing their products.

It would be best to let the manufacture service rep do the repair.


A simplified point of view from the manufacture and service rep side:

Many times people will buy specialized parts to try their own repairs, and damage the parts. This is especialy with CMOS and very delicate parts. Then they go back and have an argument with the manufacture that the parts were defective when they were really originaly not defective. I have seen this many times myself when I was doing service.

The other aspect is that when the customer repairs his own equipment, he will not have the training and skills, and proper test equipment and tools to properly do the service. He ends up with a high end product that cannot perform well, and this can work against the repution of the manfucture.

With TV sets, microwave ovens, and other high power devices, there are safety conserns where manufactures are very nervous about having customers venture inside. Selling a part to a non qualified or approved person can pass on legal safety responsibility from the manufacture.


Some of these display panel modules require special heat seal connectors and ribbon cables to be changed. This depends on their particular design. Some models require IR surface silver soldering to replace. You may replace the display yourself and find that the new one does not work because there are other parts that were also damaged along with it, or you may accidently damage the display from static or some other means.
