The LCD is cracked internally. Unless you are handy and can pick up a cheap parts camera with good LCD on eBay it isn't worth it. It is actually a pretty good little camera though, the newer ones often have less detail in the images than this model.

Casio ex-z75 I have a casio that has gone to a "scrambled" screen. I saw on a post on FixYa that you suggested that the main board needs replacing. Can you elaborate on the repair and maybe how much that would cost. The camera is not an expensive one, so I want to see if it's worth it to repair.

My HP CA340 10.0 megapixels with 3x optical zoom lens only shows a white screen when I turn it on. I can still take pictures with great quality as I could before, I just can't see what I'm doing. It was working fine yesterday, when I turned it on, it seemed fine, then the screen randomly turned white. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this before I actually have to send it in for some one else to repair.

The image that shows up on the camera when I review them, has black flashing areas. For example if the area I photographed had a lot of white - it shows up as a flashing black section. What is this? Does my camera need repairs? It happens with the lens that came with the camera and with the AF-S DX VR Zoom (55-200 mm) lens as well
Read the manual. The flashing area is overexposed. Use a smaller aperture, faster shutter speed or combination of both. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...

My son has dropped his SP-500UZ which he really likes. The screen now shows white background with a number of blue & black "cracks/flashes" all pointing to a particular point. Presumably the screen is FUBR. Is this repairable or unlikely to be economically repairable. Any thoughts?

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?
From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera. thanks for responding. now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras
