Just wondered if anyone had done this yet... Trying to figure out if this is the route to go - fix it, or put the money towards a K20D....

How much did it cost to fix it?

Personally I would sell the camera for "spares or repair" and let someone else have the hassle. Someone may buy it who is prepared to "DIY".

When you think about it 50 for the screen plus fitting and a new one costing what less the 180 body only, as iceblinker said sell it for spares and what you make put against a new one.

Shame about it so what happened ??

It also surprises me today how much spare parts are as the 18-55 mm lens hood I had to replace as a statue fell over and thus broke of the camera good think it was only the damage but it was over CD$40.xx to replace lucky the ART GALLERY owner covered it.

Good luck in what ever you decide.

As to how it happened?

Apparently, as good as the Lowepro Slingshot 200 is, either I had way too much packed in it, or the padding doesn't do as much as I'd like. Don't get me wrong, I'm not really blaming the bag, but hey, I didn't do it...

The bag, packed and zipped, fell a couple feet from a chair to the floor, and landed just right (or wrong I guess ) Maybe something was packed behind the LCD screen or something, I didn't notice...

Anyway, the next time I turned it on, there it was...

Oh well, I've picked up a K20D, and though I didn't need them, the body alone was the same price as the body with both kit lenses... They'll probably be for sale very soon...

Now I just gotta figure out the lens focus adjustment thing - not sure I need it, but I wanna know how to do it anyway...

Broke but happy,
Jamie

You wouldn't happen to be selling the k10d now you have the k20d would you?

Wellll.......

Actually, I was considering sourcing a new screen and attempting to fix it and use it as a backup....

Ask me again in a couple weeks
