Power-shot S400 LCD replacement
Dear Forum, Please Help!
I am posting the message that I have sent to afroenginer looking for help with a couple problems I had with my LCD replacement for my S400. Please post or reply to me if you have any suggestions. Thanks.
Hello, I thank you for your information on getting and replacing the LCD for my Powershot S400. I ran into a couple problems and was wondering if you could help me out??
There were a number of small rectangular clear plastic sheets that came out with the old LCD. I was not sure where they came from, or how to put them back in. There did not appear to be any on the new LCD.
Anyway, I put most of them behind the new LCD in the metalic plate that holds the LCD. I left out the one plastic sheet that was not flimsy (like the rest) because I couldn't fit them all.
After I put the camera back together, as I was tightening the bottom screw, my LCD cracked (in a V from bottom to top) again! I thought this may have been due to either 1) improper placement of the small clear protector things, or 2) the twisting of the metal LCD holder and/or camera frame from the drop that resulted in the first LCD breakage.
Do you have any suggestions?? I have a new LCD on the way.
Also, now my computer will not detect my camera when I plug the USB into the the computer?? It seems possible that the USB cord is not plugging into the camera as far as it did before I replaced the LCD screen.
Please help me with any suggestions you may have, and thanks again for the information. Replacing the LCD was not that difficut, hopefully this time I will not break the new one and will be able to rectify the situation with my USB port.
