I recently tripped and...

I recently tripped and fell while holding my COOLPIX L830. The LCD viewing screen was damaged such that only on one quarter of the screen can the subject be seen.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your CoolPix?

About 4 years old. Should I bother trying to have the viewing screen replaced? If so, where? Or should I just buy a new camera?

Technician's Assistant: The Camera Technician will be able to walk you through that. What have you tried so far with your CoolPix?

Nothing yet. I'm not sure where to go since I live in a small city.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I think that's all. Thanks!

Is that possible with out having a new LCD screen?

I'm afraid no, broken LCD screen has to be replaced in camera, it needs to take apart the LCD screen section to get it replaced if you're a handy person then I can provide you all needed info to proceed

Is that possible with out having a new LCD screen?Generally speaking, what would a repair of this sort usually cost. Is it worth repairing or should I just buy a new camera?

If you take the camera in a repair shop for screen replacement, it would cost around $200

If you try to replace the screen yourself, the screen costs around $11
