Top LCD replacement on *istD

Hi there,

Yesterday i discovered that top LCD on my Pentax *istD L2 is cracked don't know if it's possible to find replacement. as i see almost all Pentax DSLRs have the same screens on top. is there any place where i can order replacement?

thank you.

Does the lcd still work ok ?

There is a perspex cover over the screen that sits into the camera top cover (this is what I see in the service manual). If you can get one from Pentax, you should be able to carefully lever the broken one out to replace it. The new one prob has a peel and stick around the edge or would come with a thin sticky gasket.

Otherwise you might have to cut one out of a piece of clear plastic the same thickness.

Caution : Confirm this with Pentax before you start digging the old one out !!!

For the benefit of others, please let us know how you get on.

Good luck !

Chromo.

Yeah, upper line of the LCD works fine, only Battery level and SD info is not shown.
I've shown camera to the master here, and he can replace it if i get the LCD.
Is there any online shop where i can order the LCD?

If your camera shop can't get it you'll have to go to Pentax.
