(everything strictly second hand
unless stated otherwise)
The screen case is the top of the clamshell of the LX. A known problem
is that the right hinge may develop a hairline crack which, if not
treated, continues to grow until the hinge fully breaks. Repair is
possible as long as the hinge is not fully broken by glueing the hinge
with special dual component epoxy glues or with super glue.
Another problem is a broken latch.The latch is kept closed by
torsion of very thin plastic springs. The springs are very thin pieces
of plastic which wear out and break. This problem is easily repaired
with a bit of rubber or a drop of silicone kit.
Examples: Daniel Hertrichs examples.
We do not have sufficient intact latches available, but if your latch
is really ugly we will send a nicer one (still without springs though).
Replacement of the screen case is possible. For this you need to take
the 200LX fully apart to remove the screen case and to move the screen
into the replacement case. See Daniel
All screen cases come with an unbroken hinge - that is exactly what
this page is about. However, we do not have sufficient latches for
repair. So we do NOT guarantee a non-broken latch. A latch may have
been repaired with a rubber spring.
