Such a simple yet effective and informative thread.

I'm surprised nobody had actually made this tutorial already :) well done for posting.

Ive done exactly the same for the top LCD on the 7D after I scratched it, since its so cheap and easy to do.

However I do remember reading the rear LCD on the 7D is not a simple replacement as it is glass vs plastic and has special sealing, maybe someone can comment.

Thanks for the tutorial! I wouldn't have thought of the low heat hairdryer thing...

Also, props to Canon for making it so easily replaceable...in a world where few things are intended to be user serviceable, it's nice to see that we can still tinker with stuff and cheaply fix things that look like they may be big money repairs!

Great post! Thinking of doing my T1i.

I somehow got water inbetween the lcd panel and window while on holiday back in May this year. There was a water bottle in my back pack with the camera. It's been dry for a while now but there's small water marks on the screen and plastic, annoying when reviewing photos.

The camera still works perfectly so who needs weather sealing on a Rebel / xxxd :lol:. Seriously though, I think the seal around the window was just a bit bad, can't see how water could've gotten in any where else.

If you have a screen in good condition, the adhesive will set you back £2 only, incl postage. Colchester Camera Repair Service, licensed by Canon UK.


Wish I had more time for this photography thing....

Anyone know whats the best place to get the stuff from?

I live in Sweden and my only option is to pay about 100 euros for a repair. If I can save 70 by doing it myself it might be worth it. Question is where to get the parts from.

As you're in Europe you might have luck calling the UK. I asked about the adhesive for a 500D and that was only £2 incl. postage. It obviously will be a little dearer to include the window.

Try H Lehman +44 1 782 413611, they're cheaper than Camera Repair Service +44 1 206 843322. These are licensed Canon parts stockists and repairers given to me by Canon UK.

Good luck

Just completed the replacement of rear window on a 1D MkII. Didn't use a hair dryer & couldn't use a suction cup (the crack in the plastic extended across most of the window & a suction cup wouldn't stick).

Ended up using a thin, flexible putty knife about 1-1/2" wide. Placed it in the seam between the body & the window & very gently pried sideways, up it came. Two smaller pieces remained, easy enough to remove with the putty knife. Also worked for removing the old gasket but be very careful not to slip & scratch the LCD's.

Rest of the procedure was pretty much the same.

Parts came from US Cameraexternal link

Hi, I just finished repairing the LCD cover on my 40D after reading this fix. I bought the parts from Canon. The actual fix took about 15 minutes and I used a pocket knife with a thin blade as I couldn't get the suction cup to work but I did heat it up to loosen the tape. A really easy fix if you're careful and think things through before you do them. Thanks so much for the tutorial. Good shooting, Mike:)

Fixed my t1i screen using the suction cup method! Took 10-15 minutes. Very easy :)

OMG THANK YOU FOR posting this! Great to have for reference for everyone here, but also I will reference people to this everytime I hear the "oh but nikons come with an LCD screen protector that you snap on over your screen!".
