View screen is broken, can I order and replace my self?

Answers :

There are components in and around the view screen that shift when you open it up that make it very hard to replace the view screen. If you want to try it however, the part itself is expensive compared to the price of getting another camera on eBay for parts. I suggest you do that instead.

This is because the view screen is not normally the part that breaks and a broken camera with a bad lens and a good LCD can be bid on for as low as $3 + shipping costs.

But even a good replacement is fairly cheap compared to the parts and time you would invest to repair.
