Replaced my 20d LCD Window today

I replaced the rear LCD window on my 20d today (long story, but basically I had nicked it).

Did you know that the LCD is a Sony? Directly under the "Canon" on the LCD screen, is the Sony logo.

I used a suction cup as shown in the following picture:

This suction cup was off the Belkin Battery Pak for the iPod but I'm sure any suction cup that is smaller than the window would probably work fine. It took some elbow grease, but I was able pop the old window off with not too much problem.

Here is a picture of the back of the old window:

You can see the sticky gasket around it. The new LCD window comes with the sticky gasket attached and you just push it into place to install it. This is a very good design. Easy to replace if needed, and keeps dust from entering in. Kudos to Canon there.

I used a blower bulb (don't use canned air) to blow off any dust on the LCD screen before pushing the new window into place. I also blowed off the underside of the window.

It was fairly easy, however I take no responsibility, use caution and if you are not comfortable doing something like this, than please send it to Canon.

In all, I don't think you need a screen protector or anything since the Canon plastic window is quite scratch resistant and sturdy. You don't have to worry about it. But should something happen to it, you can just pop in a new one with relative ease.

Re: Replaced my 20d LCD Window today

Thanks for the report. I knew that the LCD screen was inexpensive and easy to replace but don't remember reading such specific information.

So your report is most helpful to everyone!

Thanks again,

Olga

Thanks....

This is good to know in case I ever get a big nasty scratch on the LCD. Interesting that Sony makes the platic window/cover. Did the gasket come off well with the window or was some of it left behind? Sounds like the procedure went fairly smoothly.

Also, just curious why do you recommend not using canned air. I use it a lot to blow off my gear after using it, or after wiping it down just to get the lint off. I always do a quick test on my hand to make sure the compressed air doesn't have any moisture (in a couple years, I've never seen or felt moisture) and then just spray it off with about 1/2 power. I only use full power on the front lens element of my lenses which does great with blowing off the dust after a shoot. Should I not be doing this?

Thanks again for all the good info.

Re: Thanks....

I didn't mean to imply that Sony makes the cover. Sony makes the actual screen. I like to think of it as a Trinitron inside

The gasket comes off with the window totally. It was complete attached to the window after I pulled the window off, but the gasket was off alignment. In other words, it would not be easy to reinstall a window that has already been installed before unless you carefull re-align the gasket around the edge of the window where it is supposed to be.

I don't recommend canned air simply because it can leave a residue. If you do it lightly, it might be ok but for such precision type operations such as this I would tend toward a blower blub.

Re: Thanks....

I've used 3M Dust Remover for a long time and never had a problem. It always stays indoors - perhaps that makes a difference. I keep the can upright but many times I've tilted it a little here and there and again no problems.

Cool..

I have to do mine too, I don't know how it happened but tons of scratches near the top part. It was used by someone else for a day to shoot my won wedding , but it may have been me somehow. I was a bit worried, because the scrateches being so visible obstruct the image quite a bit.

Thanks for the info.

Note

Since you are talking about the LCD cover window, I think it is polycarbonate like the ones on the V1, 717, and 828. If so, you should be able to carefully polish out the scratches using a polycarbonate plastic polish. Might be easier than the remove and replace effort. You cannot do that on the LCD screen itself though (under the removable window). Sony and most mfgrs are now putting polycarbonate (same as football helmets) windows over the LCD screen to prevent damage. Hence, the use of a "scratch protector" as people use on PDAs that don't have the protective window, are required for long term use.

PS. I think Canon and other mfgrs will buy rather than make when it makes cost sense. I seem to remember that Sandisk makes Sony's MSPro for Sony. Sanyo makes camera stuff for Nikon and Olympus also.

For Mediahound, I tried to remove mine with a suction cup

and seem to have trouble getting it off. How hard was it? Did you use any special technique to get it off.

My LCD screen took a hard lick on a trip in S. Africa this summer, but I had put a Radio Shack LCD screen saver on it, and that saved it. The plastic screen saver material was totally ripped through, but the LCD didn't have a scratch on it. The screen saver definitely took the damage. It took a few tries (and wasted materrial ) to get it on smoothly with no (or minimal) bubbles, but it was worth the effort. I replace it when it gets doggy looking.

This is exactly what I used on my Rebel to protect the LCD. It's cheap and worth every penny in preventing any knicks and scratches from occuring.

Re: For Mediahound, I tried to remove mine with a suction cup

i used the needle nose pliers to hold on to the suction cup and just pulled it off. it's pretty tough but it will come off with enough elbow power.

I replaced the rear LCD window on my 20d today (long story, but
basically I had nicked it).

Did you know that the LCD is a Sony? Directly under the "Canon" on
the LCD screen, is the Sony logo.

I used a suction cup as shown in the following picture:

This suction cup was off the Belkin Battery Pak for the iPod but
I'm sure any suction cup that is smaller than the window would
probably work fine. It took some elbow grease, but I was able pop
the old window off with not too much problem.

Here is a picture of the back of the old window:

You can see the sticky gasket around it. The new LCD window comes
with the sticky gasket attached and you just push it into place to
install it. This is a very good design. Easy to replace if needed,
and keeps dust from entering in. Kudos to Canon there.

I used a blower bulb (don't use canned air) to blow off any dust on
the LCD screen before pushing the new window into place. I also
blowed off the underside of the window.

It was fairly easy, however I take no responsibility, use caution
and if you are not comfortable doing something like this, than
please send it to Canon.

In all, I don't think you need a screen protector or anything since
the Canon plastic window is quite scratch resistant and sturdy. You
don't have to worry about it. But should something happen to it,
you can just pop in a new one with relative ease.

The Canon part # for the 20d rear screen window:
CB3-1831-000

Part # for 10d rear screen window:
CB3-0887-000

They are about US$7.00 + shipping and can be ordered from Canon

This is exactly what I used on my Rebel to protect the LCD. It's
cheap and worth every penny in preventing any knicks and scratches

funny, it is exact as expensive as a whole new screen.

But there is enough of the stuff in the package to apply it maybe 6 or 8 times. And it is a lot easier than replacing the screen !

I haven't specifically gotten PC polish but....

did get some general plastic polish at a plastics company. I called around.
You might try here, they specifically mention Polycarbonate Plastic [Lexan (r)]
