    Looking for guesstimate on rear screen replacement in Australia, has anyone had one done?
    If so, by whom and at what cost?

    Camera works fine otherwise, just wondering if it's worth repairing...?

    thanks for looking...(-:

    I bought a replacement screen on ebay for $80 and replaced it myself. If you get the kit with the lcd removal tool and screw driver, it isn't that difficult. Take pics as you take it apart so you can remember how things go back together, but you can figure it out anyways. The thin screen bezel is fragile and is easy to crack when tightening the tiny screws (oly cracked it themselves on many when building the camera - which is covered under warranty). The only issue I have is that I didn't have proper double sided tape to reattach lcd. I now need to reapply tape with better tape i got from cell phone repair shop.

    I'd get a quote from olympus: might be reasonable if the screen bezel was cracked already and need replacement under warranty.
