LCD Monitor Problems, Flipout Screen Cracked, Screen Dead

Canon HF-G30 LCD Screen Problems:

The flip out LCD Monitor touch screen is dead, not powering up, black, does not light up, or is not displaying the picture properly. The LCD Screen may be cracked or shattered. There may be issues with the “touch” function of the monitor. The LCD can become damaged if the camcorder is dropped or suffers impact but this is not always the case. Sometimes the LCD screen can malfunction for no apparent reason.

Solution:

Your LCD screen will need to be replaced. We use original Canon parts, and will only use an original Canon replacement screen. We never use substandard generic replacement LCD screens.

The reason that we don’t use generic LCD screens are that the picture quality and performance is nowhere near that of the original Canon LCD screen.
