Customer Question
My Nikon CoolPix L20...

My Nikon CoolPix L20 screen seems to have died. I only see colors like a collage. How can I get this repaired as I love this camera and really don't want to buy a new one. Roberta

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is COOLPIX L 20 2.4/3.0V, 0.6/0.4 A, SERIAL NUMBER 32881126, WITH 10 MEGAPIXELS, 3.6 X ZOOM. 3 INCH LCD AND HAS MOTION DETECTION. ON THE BLACK LABEL THERE IS ALSO A NUMBER N16184.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I WAS VIEWING RECENT PHOTOS I HAD TAKEN, AND TOOK A PHONE CALL, AND WHEN I WENT BACK TO IT, I COULD NO LONGER SEE MY PHOTOS ON THE LCD SCREEN, ONLY COLORS. I CHANGED THE BATTERIES THINKING THAT MAY HAVE BEE THE PROBLEM, BUT TO NO AVAIL. I DID NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE TO TROUBLE SHOOT.
