I have to change the LCD of my new Nikon COOLPIX S6000

hello,

I've broken the screen of my camera,

I would like to know how to change it and where I can find the new one, even I think this will be a problem because I'm in Laos right now, not planning to return home.

the other problem could be that the camera is really new, I've bought it in Tokyo 3 months ago and maybe is still not available in the other country.

thank you.

You;re actually in the right part of the world...Coolpix is made in China, not far away! Nikon also employs about 4000 people just north of Bangkok, making SLR's in a huge factory.

What you have to do is call Nikon Thailand, or go there when you are in Bangkok. They will have a parts department that will sell you the LCD for about $20 to $40 USD. Then you just take out the screws on the case and replace the LCD- no soldering. You might be able to get Nikon to email you a service manual as well. The only tool required is a #00 screwdriver. There's also a huge electronics mall in downtown Bangkok with computer and camera stores, where they have a lot of little repair shops that will replace the LCD on the spot. Having been to Laos, I would say the chances of doing any of this there are slim to none...

good luck

I have to say that the huge electric store have been burned down from the red skirt 3 weeks ago.

anyway I'll call the Nikon hoping to find a place where to buy the new LCD near to me.

thank you for the answer.
