Dropped my Kodak EasyShare 4530 - no LCD preview/review

    Can still take still photos and video (without preview) - any ideas on
    how to fix the LCD display? Probably not worth getting it serviced?

    Hi.

    Find a local Camera Repairer (not Kodak) and ask for an estimate. It would
    be worthwhile finding the definitive answer, even if the Estimate does cost
    a few bucks or quid.

    However a Dropped Camera is always the perfect excuse for an upgrade.

    Hello, Adrian:

    I own a DX4530, with precisely the same issue. (It was an eBay
    purchase; the seller explicitly stated the defect in question.)

    In a later repair attempt, I bought a used LCD panel ($39.95 +
    shipping), from an online entity, calling himself "DarnToothySam."

    Sadly, the problem remained, even after the "new" component was
    installed. I was able to send it back, for a full refund (minus
    return shipping costs, of course).

    DarnToothySam not only sells/auctions secondhand digital cameras
    (and their individual parts), he also fixes them, and his prices
    seem quite reasonable. Here are his Web sites:

    DarnToothySam.com
    http://www.darntoothysam.com

    DarnToothySam - eBay Store
    http://stores.ebay.com/DarnToothySam

    Good luck!


    Cordially,
