Introduction

In this guide, the goal is to show how to take apart a Bell and Howell DNV16HDZ camcorder in order to replace parts such as the front LED. This would be helpful in the case of a damaged or malfunctioning LED in the camcorder. In this repair guide every screw was taken out using the Philips head #0 driver which is quite small. Also every screw taken out is the same uniform size (2mm) which is quite convenient.
