Easy, remove the 9 screws that hold the rear case and pull the case apart,.remember there are 4 screws under the hotshoe base and 4 under the memory door and one under the USB cover. You need to pry and slide the hotshoe base back with a slim screwdriver and youll see 4 screws, remove the rear ones. There will be 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear case, the LCD and the buttons. These pull out carefully with gentle pressure. The LCD can be removed with screws and another ribbon cable connector that needs to be unclipped and then removed. replace LCD, Put it back together and make sure the ribbon cables are fully seated. Good to go.

Can I update firmware on an olympus camedia C5050z camera ?


There has never been an update for the firmware of the C5050 zoom. On Olympus they only offer some updates for Mac and Windows, to improve connection (driver) and a RAW plugin.

Same lens error


The 4 megapixel Nikon CP4500

Nikon CP990.

The Canon G3 or G5

The Olympus C5050

Sony F717. Imo a g3, G5, C5050 or f717 would be a much better choice.

Broken LCD - Need cost or can I avil Warranty as in Warranty period.


Unfortunately I would be pretty sure that the warranty wouldnt cover the cost of your screen as it would come under misuse... ie: you broke it dropped it caught it damaged it ?. and not covered under electronic breakdown or fair wear and tear , however dont despair a replacement screen is not that much and fitting it is relatively simple with the right tools and a steady hand and good eyesight ..Cost of a replacement is available on the Olympus website .. however if the screen just stopped working and you didn't break it then yes it would be covered under warranty ..

Olympus C5050


That's a crying shame.  I believe that spares are no longer available for this unit (which is, IMHO, one of the very best prosumer digitals ever built).
Your best bets would be to take it to a local camera service center, or, to look on eBay for a used C5050 or C8080 (8MP with most of the same capabilities and some improvements, but, not quite as good an aperture) for a very reasonable price in good condition.
I know that's less than ideal, but, after a great deal of research on a similar problem with my C5050, that's where I ended up.

Battery cover


I'd suggest cardboard and duct tape. The same happened to me. You can also try gluing small pieces of Velcro to fasten closed that way. To the best of my knowledge, that clip can't be replaced.

LCD Screen Black/Blank. ? ? ?


Perhaps you have quick view turned off in the setup menus. There's no way the CCD is the problem as the camera takes pictures.

Manual Focus Problem


Yup, the Oly C5050 MF leaves a lot to be desired... What I did was to use the AF to get a focus lock then while still holding the shutter half way I would change focusing mode to MF - it will keep the distance value of the AF... Hope this helps...

Memory card compatibility


Can't be much help on this one I'm afraid. I too have a C5050 and have numerous cards the largest of which is 512MB. I wouldn't like to use anything bigger than this just in case the card fails. I don't like having all my eggs in one basket. I quite often change cards on a shoot well before they are full also for the same reason. . Not so expensive to replace as well when they do go wrong. I also have an XD card loaded at the same time and swap between the two frequently That said to date I haven't had a CF or XD card fail on me as yet, but theres always a first time. I've also never had any problems with the C5050 recognising any CF cards of any type up to 512MB in size and cannot see any reason why they would fail to use a 1GB or above.
