Question about Fuji FinePix A400 Digital Camera

6 Answers

Broken LCD screen on Fuji digital camera, how to replace by myself?

I just bought it, 4/06, with extended an warranty which does not cover LCD problems. I, of course, did nothing wrong. This was early 7/06. Had it in a fat, quilted carrier, etc. and never dropped, etc. The LCD is much too delicate, as I am reading online at various sites. All whining aside, the camera was $149 and the repairs promise to = $250+ , so, I must repair it myself. Where do I buy a replacement LCD screen for my Fuji FinePix A400? AND, most importantly, where can I find a HOW TO page for replacing it, with photos, if possible. I went to Peter Bagnall's self camera fix site for repairing another kind of camera and it has photos that I might use, but first I need to find a replacement LCD screen. Help, I am an old woman who can do miracles with a cup of tea and some time and patience and tiny screw drivers and some "how to print out". Thanks if you can help and RATS, and gosh darnit, if no one can. The Cavewoman writes and having writ, moves on.

    I think the screen on my FujiFilm Finepix A805 has gone out. The camera was not dropped or banged around, but there is a large bluish/blackish looking splotch with some small colored lines that are showing on the screen. If anyone finds out anything about this or how to fix it, please let me know.



    Thank you,

Buy202.com is a scam. I sent my Casio EX-S600 camera to them to repair the lcd screen and they not only didn't repair it, but lost it. They do not return any calls or emails, and we stopped at their 'advertised address' in Columbus, Ohio and it is boarded up. We have reported their owners, Josh McVey and Reverend David, to the Better Business Bureau.

To avoid paying OEM prices for a replacement screen I purchase appropriate broken cameras off eBay and swap the LCDs. This will require a certain level of repair expertise. I just did this for a F700 (twice) . It did require a special tri wing screwdriver to take it apart.

SOURCE: fuji finepix f50 camera was

Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair

SOURCE: Fuji Finepix S5800

I have just done this very thing. I ordered a new replacement OEM LCD from a seller in the US listed on E-Bay. Even with postage it was a third of the cost of sending the camera to Fujifilm for repair (and Fujifilm wanted a couple of quid less than buying a whole new camera!). To Dismantle the FujiFim S5800 and get the back off the camera you need to remove 5 screws, and dont mix them up as they are different lengths. I used a set of those small jewellers screwdrivers to do this. Make sure you have taken the battery's out and taken the carrying strap off. First remove the screw on the side just above the flap where the memory storage card goes. On the opposite side of the camera where the carrying strap bracket is you will find two screws in the recess, just remove the one screw nearest the back of the camera. Now turn the camera up-side-down. You will find 4 screws around the threaded hole for a Tripod. Remove the two nearest the back of the camera (they are also the widest apart). Now open the battery hatch and remove the screw nearest the outer edge of the camera which is effectively below the memory storage hatch. The back of the camera should now be easy to lift away and reveal the LCD screen. Be careful as there is a small semi transparent printed circuit cable that connects the rotary switch to the main body of the camera. I chose to leave this in place as I was reluctant to remove more parts than necessary - however if you choose to leave it in place be sure support the the back bit of the camera as you do not want to strain rip or excessively twist this cable. The LCD screen rests in place between some guides and had a small piece of black tape holding the end down at the ribbon cable end. Use the blade of one of the screw drivers to lift the corner of the tape away. and you can lift the LCD screen up. The Ribbon Cable looks like a push fit but in fact there is a tiny black hinged section holding it in place. Be very careful and lift this up and the old cable can be released and removed. You will find the same system holding the cable in place for the rotary switch so if you want to give yourself working room you could disconnect that in this manner. Fitting is now a reversal of the removal process. Put the ribbon cable into the socket as far as it will go, No force will be required. Clip the tiny black hinged section down and this will lock the cable in place. Re-assemble the camera and remember to fit the memory storage hatch while doing so. Note: the storage hatch has a small plastic lug that presses a switch. When the hatch is opened it cuts the camera off (personaly I think this is a bit of weak point in this camera's design, if this lug or switch wears or breaks the camera is not going to work - but that is by the by for now). Presumably this is so you don't add or remove memory cards while the camera is powered up. This means it is difficult to test the new screen without putting the camera back together. But all being well you should be back up and running. Just take your time, study all the parts first and you should be ok. Don't come crying to me though if you break it - remember all repairs are carried out at your own risk.

Probably, yes.
Remove the 2 screws on the side,
Remove the 3 screws in the buttom. (2 of which are tri-wing)
Remove the 2 screws in the battery compartment.
Flip out the chrome side (from the front backwards)
Remove the 2 screws underneath the chrome side.
Turn the camera upside down. You can now flip the backcover down (gently lift the cover, both on the mid by the tripd hole and on the side, where the crome plate was) Watch out for the USB connector.
Gently lift the broken LCD out. You need to release (flip up) the tiny white lock on the connector to release the ribbon.
Assembly same procedure, but backwards.
Beware of the flash components. The can give a nasty electrical chock.

It's a short in the instrument cluster.
I had the same problem with my 2004 XUV.
It started in early December of 2007.
Intermittent manifestations, than more persistent.
Took it to the GMC Dealer --
Of course, the Truck wouldn't do it's tricks for the Tech.
They replaced the ignition switch and sent me home.
It got progressively worse.
I waited until I was sure it would do it for the tech.
Took it back in to GMC Dealer--
It's a short in the instrument cluster.
They needed to replace the entire cluster.
I bought an extended warranty when I bought the truck.
The warranty is still in effect --
So I only had to pay the $100 deductible.
No Idea what it might cost otherwise.

Hello I want to file a claim I have warranty I cant get a hold of anyone


Hi

To file a claim it looks like you need to send an email with the details using their contact form here:

Support Android Tablets at an Economical Value Ematic

Below is a link to their Shipping and Warranty Policy, although your extended warranty may alter these depending upon what is covered.

Shipping Policy Warranty

It also mentioned a tel number - 1-888-968-1985 - which I presume is the one you tried, but worth trying if not.

I don\'t where you are situated but in the UK, the contract for a sale is between Purchaser and Vendor, it may be the same where you are so it may be worth going back to where you bought it (unless of course you bought it direct !!) as they may be able to help with more and different contact numbers. Also if they sold you the extended warranty, that warranty may be with an insurance company rather than the manufacturer, so you would need to contact them.

Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Cheers

The Powertrain Warranty should be good for 60k or 5yrs. This is a common problem. Fix it and get rid of it before you have to shell out $6k on a new engine.

I have a vertical red line on 46 inch lcd it is 2 weeks out of warranty model no TOSHIBA 46 XF355DB what is best course of action thanks


I also have this problem on a set that is a year and a half old. The repair man was here yesterday with some parts that didn't fix the problem...he said the screen needs to be replaced! Luckily I bought from Costco, who extends the warranty by a year, so we won't be out any money. They will be getting back to me with what they are going to do...repair or replace...depending upon what is most cost effective for them. I will be trying to purchase extended warranty for this TV, if repaired, or new TV, if replaced. Too many horror stories out there on all brands not to.

Crack beneath screen


I hate to bring bad news but it's better cruel truth than sweet lie.
You got so-called "physical damage" of your LCD panel. Surface that you can touch and one that looks intact is just a protective layer. Behind it is fragile class of LCD panel. Sometimes kids tap toy into the screen and parents later guessing what's wrong with TV.
No manufacturer (that covers first 12 months) or extended warranty will cover this repair. Technician will show up for free of charge, take a pictures of the screen and leave you with this problem. Whole LCD panel have to be replaced and part alone could cost up to 80% of cost of new TV.
Unless you can prove that this is shipping damage (I doubt it because it is not that you calling retailer very next day after purchase) - there is nothing that you can do to get out of this situation cheaply.
Still you need to call manufacturer customer service and have technician from authorized service center to show up and inspect it. Maybe we both wrong and you have a case of defective panel. Really hard to determine without seeing pictures of how your LCD looks like.
Sorry again and good luck!
Russ.

Take it back to where you bought it if it's still under warranty, they are obliged to fix it!

under warranty if it is a defect from manufacture or if you bought extended warranty from retailer, some policy's cover damage. Only covered if policy is still within time of purchase.

If it is not covered it will be cheaper to replace computer than repair.

You can search here for warranty from manufacture.

Hi TUXI,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: bought d/w in 2005. used it about once a week. worked great. one day, nothing happened. No lights on panel come on! power to it is good, of course you didn't buy the extended warranty! Would like your help/advise.

First recheck the electrical connection in the junction box under the d/w. It could be you have a loose or broken connection. If all is well there you probly have a bad control board. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!

Flat panel tv repair


I have the same problem with a 52" inch XBR. Went to sony and have a extended warranty. Warranty doesn't cover physical or accidental damage. To replace the panel costs more than buying a new TV. This is not fair to consumer. The warranty I paid for is useless and I can't even get it repaired. There should be some kind of group action to resolve this issue.
