I ordered i replacement lcd screen on line threw Ebay for my nikon d5100 and when i opened up the screen the back of it is just a flat piece of metal and the one on the camera has a circuit board on it with 3 wires and a few ribbons . Did i order the wrong screen or am i suppose to pull that circit board off the original and somehow affix it to the new one.

I found the answer to my own question .The circuit board is glued to the back of the lcd screen so i used a vary thin vary sharp knife to slide between the screen and the circuit board .They came apart nicely but i ended up breaking one of the connectors for the ribbon tape on the circuit board . I ended up in the end buying a complete unit for the back for a vary reasonable $40.00 .If you go this root you will need to spit the camera case in half but there is no soldering involved . I wood recommend buying a high end #3 Philips screw driver

because i used a cheep one and stripped 2 or more screws that i had to drill

out. Also in the step buy step guide in the solutions section for spitting the case he forgot the 3 screws around the eye piece . My camera is now working well.
