Spencer Cockayne: Are you familiar with replacing the top LCD screen on a Nikon D300
nuevoarte graphics: many thanks! you save my nikon d-90 thanks thanks thanks i repaired in 20
nitrous dude: Does anyone know which PCB (MCU or Imaging Power PCB) is replaced for LCD
failure, typically with vertical grey bars and no actual information, that
doesn't fix with simple LCD replacement?
nitrous dude: You're lucky. There are D90's with LCD problems that don't respond to
replacing the LCD. The camera works fine in all respects BUT the LCD on
the back has grey vertical bars. No information, no menu options. It
appears to be due to a PCB failure but the question remains: which one.
The MCU is easily available on eBay. The other one, not so easily
obtained, is called the Imaging Power PCB. Any thoughts?
Alex Bourquin: Thanks! Be careful not to turn the screw too much inside. I broke (a little
) the screen.
nitrous dude: Just a follow up guys. Replacing the MCU PCB (easily done with part
available from eBay) solved the failed LCD problem that wasn't fixed
through LCD replacement. Just thought someone might benefit from this.
A Farrow: I used this to fix my D40X. There are six screw holding the ali plate down
around the screen and the screen is stick down with tough tape. Use a small
screwdriver to prise the tape without bending the ali plate. The little
cable clamps are tricky too. But a $17 repair and all is good! Thanks.
FreestylerFrisbee: excellent - thanks so much. just to make sure i had the appropriate size of
phillips, i bought a $14 set of "precision" tools at officedepot. and a
note for those who view this in the future - it is critical that the 3
cables be inserted/installed fully and properly before you clamp them down.
Justice Diven: Thanks for posting this! I had a bit of a struggle assuring that the
ribbons were pushed in far enough to get a good connection, but otherwise
everything worked great and you saved me over $200 dollars!
Jens Børresen: I tried this but 4 of the screws are impossible to get out. I use the right
screwdriver ofc. Any tips on how to get it out? Please answer.
lomeli134: my screen does not turn on after installation....can you make a video
showing the best way to install the ribbon cable back, and also the steps
backwards. All my buttons seem to be working fine just no display.Any help
will be greatly appreciated.
Peter Arnold Riche: You were lucky to have srews which were not seemingly glued in; I managed
to get four out but the others would not budge despite pitting all my
strength against them...Nikon unfixed, shame :(
Antoine H: My d90 is repaired through your video! Tkanks :)
J Spazz: Thanks, 10 min and done
drzsta: about $20 (USD)
drzsta: Did you use Use Phillips-type screwdriver size '0' or '00'? If so, were the
screws too tight? All of these screws came out as normal for me - just make
sure you press firmly so the screwdriver doesn't slip and round the screw
RICHARD PHILLIPS: Excellent video worked a treat. I used this way to get in and replace the
glass screen.Once the LCD screen is out the way,gentle pressure on the
front screen will push it out and a replacement can be put in with no
damage to the outside of the camera. As stated further up you must ensure
the ribbons are back in correctly or you will have a blank display screen.
Thanks again for this video
Ken Mac: Fixed my D90 thanks to your video. Stripped one screw head but managed to
make it work. Thanks very much!
Σταύρος Νικηφόρος: how much did the part cost?
FolkMarcCNY: Thank you for showing us the way to get this done!
Ken Mac: Forgot to say - I took the D90 to Nikon in Toronto and they said $400 to
repair and suggested I scrap it. $35 for the screen and after watching this
video my son has a very good camera. As we were about to leave on vacation
when I dropped it I had to buy a D7000 :-)
