Rear viewing inner screen cracked - Praktica Digital Cameras


Answers :

Thanks for the additional information.

Your camera is a generic model made by a Chinese factory and then sold on with different exterior trim and badging details under quite a few different brand names, such as the Polaroid i1032. Unlike with major brands like Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax and Olympus, obtaining spare parts is more difficult as the brand owner (in this case Praktica) would not have any major spare parts available. If the camera failed under warranty then the company would have simply exchanged your camera for another and disposed of yours, although cracked LCD panels are usually due to non-warranty causes anyway so would not be covered.

There are some suppliers who claim to be able to supply and fit replacement LCD panels for many products, such as FotoGeeks so it might be worth checking around, but in reality it probably will not be worth it. Your camera is likely to be nearly four years old now and has only been designed to last about five years, and when it gets to that age other major parts will typically start to fail. A replacement 2.4" LCD screen will typically cost around US$40-$50 or if in the UK £40-£50 (we pay more on our side of the pond, as usual!). Fitting can be tricky and there are no repair manuals for your model in the public domain but there are various YouTube guides to show you how it's done on other models to give you an idea. You'll also need to buy a set of reasonably good quality jewellers' screwdrivers which will be another US$20 investment if you don't already own them and a mobile phone case opening tool may be required US$2/$3. DIY repair is not guaranteed to work, and if you've been sent the wrong LCD panel there are usually no refunds unless the supplier has clearly got things totally wrong like sending out completely the wrong size of panel. In short, the DIY repair option is a judgement call for you to make but personally I think it's a waste of good money. Professional fitting will bring the total bill up to about US$100 and at that price you're definitely better off diverting the repair funds towards the cost of another camera. You can easily buy a brand new camera of similar or superior specification with a full manufacturer's warranty for around the same price.

Sorry, but in this instance the age of the camera, the lack of official spare parts, and the costs of repair vs. replacement all conspire (in my opinion) to make a repair a completely unrealistic option.

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.
