The back panel can now fall off easily by turning the device upside down. Be sure to catch it so the data ribbons do not tear or tug.

Remove each data ribbon cable from the motherboard by applying pressure down towards the motherboard and gently sliding your thumb upwards on the slot where the cable meets the motherboard. This will raise a very small clip that locks the cable in place.

Big thank you! This walkthrough really helped ;) fortunatelly only one of the connecting cables slided out of the socket that caused the lcd dead. Cam is back in business in 15 minutes ;)

Also....the last step should mention unclipping the ribbon cables in the same manner as before from the small circuit board that resides on the rear of the LCD, and the LCD has a metal frame that will need to be removed and installed on the replacement LCD before installing it. It is held in place via strong double sided tape. A little heat may need to be applied to separate it.
