Having problems with your HP Photosmart R927 Digital Camera ?

The screen was bumped and now looks like cracked glass covering the entire screen. Repair or replace the camera?


Answers :

I bought a NEW screen for mine off eBay. Cost $35.00. All you have to do is take out some screws(very small), lift the old screen out, align the 2 plastic/electrial connectors, snap them back into place, and put it all back together. I bought the camera for $5. So $40 into the camera, now its practically NEW.
Repair may be more expensive than the camera is worth. In my experience, this camera has poor battery life and a poor lens. It's also heavy compared to $200 cameras these days.

But, if you're a tinkerer, you may be able to repurpose the camera, perhaps as a webcam or security cam, if the HP software allows control by the PC connected through the camera's dock interface.

Try taking more pictures with the camera. You'll have to remove the memory card from the camera to see if it worked.

Here's the link to the software, from HP's site.

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen. Is the screen repairable or is it best to purchase a new digital camera?

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.

White Screen: I turned on my camera shortly after replacing the batteries, but when I looked at my screen, it was completely white. I turned it off, then turned it on again, and the same thing happened. Later, I tried to see if it'll work after I connected it to my computer, but the screen was still white. The camera has been dropped a couple of times, but it wasn't anything severe - just a couple of centimeters from the ground, and I'm pretty sure the screen isn't cracked (I didn't see an
