You can now remove the top of the camera, being careful of the fragile mylar cable that connects it to the main body of the camera.
In some versions, there is a tab that secures the top on the other side from the wrist strap. If yours has this, you won't be able to completely separate the top until you have removed the top screw in step 8.
Taking off the top cover takes a little bit of force. Do this gently. There will be a snapping sound.
The door to the memory card compartment also will be freed and can be removed.
Open the LCD screen and pivot it to its fullest open position (shown).
Remove the rear cover by pulling it straight away from the body of the camera.
When reassembling the camera, remember to replace the screws in the same location from which you removed them. Otherwise you may damage the camera.
Now remove the top screw 3.3 mm long on the side of the camera that hold the side panels and the front cover using the #00 screwdriver.
Gently remove the side panel of the camera by pulling it away form the camera.
The side panel may get stuck on the internal wires, so gently wiggle this panel loose.
