If necessary, peel the EMI gasket off the camera cable connector.
Disconnect the camera cable by pulling the male end straight away from its socket toward the optical drive opening.
Do not try to lift this connector straight up off the board. Pull the connector parallel to the face of the logic board.
Deroute the camera data cable from the channel in the optical drive.
Grab the plastic pull tab secured to the LVDS cable lock and rotate it toward the DC-in side of the computer.
Pull the LVDS connector straight away from its socket.
When disconnecting the LVDS cable, do not pull on the black tab secured to the LVDS cable lock. We recommend wiggling the cable while applying tension to slowly "walk" the connector out of its socket.
