Locate the connector which holds the flat cable to the main circuit board. Unlock the connector by gently pulling  up its black piece from the side the flat cable comes into it. Pull the flat cable from the connector and you'll have completely removed the back casing from the camera. Note I taped each of the screws to their original places on the removed back casing, so I don't loose or mix any of them.
