Default Easyshare P850 Screen Problems

I purchased a used Easyshare P850. Sometimes, the screen will have lines of red and blue color through it. I have reset the camera's settings and this did not help. I believe that the problem is being caused by a loose connection between the sensor and the screen. Does anyone know how I can take the camera apart to check the connections?

jdmay-

Welcome to the Forum. We're please that you dropped by.

Without a Shop Manual for the camera that would be a fairly difficult operation. I have known it to be done one time before by a very skilled machinist. So I am not saying that it is impossible.

Best of luck to you.

I could be very wrong about this (and I probably am), but the fact that it is just red or blue sounds suspiciously like entire lines of bad pixels. I've never seen an entire line bad...just isolated pixels (you know...a red dot here, a blue dot there). Is this just on the LCD, or does it show up in the image as well?

I thought that too, but if you tap the side of the camera it will fix the problem. That's what makes me think that there is a loose connection.

Get it fixed!
You can go to www.precisioncamera.com and request a repair quote (no charge), fill in the form with a good description of the problem, as you have stated above.
This outfit is very reputable and have been doing fine work for many years. They are in Enfield CT, previously in Chicopee MA.
Cheers
