Picture of Replace the LCD on a Nikon Coolpix L22

A few weeks ago my wife turned on her digital camera and discovered the LCD was broken. After ordering a replacement part I tried looking up how to repair this particular model and noticed a distinc lack of how to's. The repair was surprisingly quick and easy, so why not make my first instructable? Hope you enjoy it.

Step 1: Gather Tools and Parts

For this instructable you will need the following:

  • One Nikon Coolpix L22 with broken LCD

  • One replacement LCD

  • One size 10 Phillips-Head Screwdriver

  • One Small Flat-Head Screwdriver (exact size doesn't matter)

  • A place to put all the tiny screws so you don't lose them. I used a red SOLO cup.

Step 2: Remove the Case Screws

First remove the batteries and the memory card.
Start Disassembly with removal of the 7 case screws. Remember to put them in your container so they don't get lost.

Step 3: Pry the case apart

Use the Flat-Head screwdriver to very gently pry apart the case. It should go fairly easily. I found it easiest to start on the bottom where the tripod mount goes and slowly work my way around. The back plate should pop off easily.

Step 4: Remove the broken screen

After the back plate pops off you can lift the broken screen out. It is held in with little friction tabs. At this point the tray holding the screen must be removed. It is held in place with 4 Phillips Screws; some of them are under the little black pads which lift right off. The most difficult part is that the metal plate has to come out to get good access to the Ribbon Connector.
