    I have cracked the LCD screen on my OMD E5 :(

    I can source a new screen from USA and have someone who repairs mobile phones etc who says he could fit a new screen if there was a service manual or YouTube video . Has anyone done this yet and can you offer help?

    I have been quoted 4 week lead te to get this fixed through Olympus and Luton camera repair and I need it doing much quicker as in the middle of wedding season!

    Except the E-M5 monitor is an OLED, NOT an LCD! Sounds like you have the wrong part if it's an LCD!

    I dropped my OM-D late last year and broke the EVF. I sent it to Olympus UK for repair (in Portugal) and had it back in less than a week. During the repair they replaced the OLED display since the frame was cracked. Cost overall was £168
