HI PS technicians I have an older Lumix digi cam - DMC-TZ6

HI PS technicians
I have an older Lumix digi cam - DMC-TZ6 which on a trip I cracked the monitor. The camera is perfectly handy and would like to replace the monitor.
The only replacement I can find (amazon or ebay) is model LUMIX DMC-TZ6 ZS1. However checking the box and the manual there is not mention of ZS1 so am wondering if this screen will fit my model before ordering? Also, I see that some models require soldering which I won't have the facility to do - do you know if this model requires this?
Thanks for your help - I would love to fix this camera soon
Kindest regards XXXXX XXXXX

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for using Just Answer my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help with your question.

carlday1 :

The screen you require is the same for the DMC-TZ6 as the DMC-ZS1. I think the DMC-ZS1 is the upgraded model number

carlday1 :

I cannot see as to why you would need to solder the screen, it should be a matter of unclipping a connector.

The only reason you might need to solder is sometimes a blob of solder is put across a connector on the screen to prevent damage from static electricity before installation.
