This guide is NOT COMPLETE. THere are several missing screws that need to be removed.

2 from the viewfinder,

Do not follow this and force the back open or you will need more repair!

Hi, I followed every step and replaced the LCD screen but when turned on the camera, I only got a yellow horizontal line. Do you know what could have gone wrong? Thank you.
