Re: G1 X II (tilt) screen goes black when unhinged

Hi, I own a G1X mark ii and I have the EXACT same problem.

I took the screen apart to find a slight tear in the orange cable which connects the screen to the camera body. On eBay a replacement cable can be found for £19 and repairing the camera is a moderate difficulty however I would 100% recommend doing it yourself as you will save a lot of money.

Just be very careful when the camera parts are exposed and remember how it goes back after you have replaced it. This would 100% fix the camera and make the screen work again and considering that this has happened to other people it seems like a badly designed screen so I will be repairing it and selling it immediately.

I will try to add some photos
