Hi, everybody!

The glass covering the rear LCD on my F5 has had a hairline crack for over a year, but it doesn't seem to affect the LCD display. I ordered a new Rear LCD from the Nikon Parts Dept. Including Shipping and Handling, it cost me only $19.30. But Nikon estimated the charge for THEM to replace the rear LCD would run around $179-$241...Yikes!
That's about HALF of the camera's current worth!

I was wondering if any of you Nikonians have ever tried replacing it yourself, or is it too complicated for a do-it-yourself to attempt?

I came across this bit of disturbing Nikon news while searching online for Nikon Parts: see...

Thanks in advance for any replies! "LarryHG" (Silver)
