Introduction

The Canon PowerShot D20 is waterproof and shockproof, so it won't suffer from a cracked LCD screen. However, if the camera is improperly sealed, water damage may prevent the screen from working. In this case, make sure the camera still works by taking a few pictures and uploading them to your computer, then replace the screen.
