Replacing LCD screen - How hard is it to do this/how to do it?

\015 My viewfinder works, and the pictures turn out, but cannot use the LCD screen to view while taking a picture. Problems started after dropping it. Is it difficult to replace the LCD screen, and how do you do it, i.e. snaps in place after removing screws, cables/etc. replaced, or?\015

Answers :

Well, it all depends on the camera. if you have a 2000 dollar camera, might be better to take it to a place where then can order and put it in. If you have a 200 dollar camera, it's probably better to buy on, as your 200 dollar camera is now selling for $140... that said, let's go upstream a bit-- putting it in assume you can get the part. Why not look for the part first. If you find it somewhere, there will probably be instructions as to how to put it in. And THAT said, I dont know of a massive market for camera parts. Camera accessories, yes. Replacement parts for broken pieces? Hmm, probably just the manufacturer itself, and ebay. I dont trust most ebay sellers, and so a call to your manufacturer's 800 line you be helpful. You can find out your 1) warranty status, 2) the replacement part number and 3) the prospect of putting it in/instruction/if you can do it at all. 4) possible cost to replace by sending it in.

by the way, regarding your warranty, if you purchased with a platinum credit card, you could be holding a two year warranty, not just one.

lastly, specifics on your question really rest on your exact make and model....

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.
