  • Now that all of the exterior screws have been removed, grip the camera firmly on both sides.

  • Gently pry the back panel from the main body of the camera.

    • There are two ribbon cables that need to be removed in order for the back panel to come free from the camera body, as indicated.

    • This back panel contains various control components of the camera as well as the LCD screen.

Do NOT pry until you’ve removed the eye gasket, and the 2 screws behind this! You will break the camera.

  • Remove the four silver 4mm Phillips #000 screws connecting the LCD screen to the back of the camera.

  • Be sure to lift the ribbon cable to remove the remaining hidden black 4mm Phillips #000 screw.

The circled screw on the bottom in the middle isn’t a screw, it’s an alignment nub. The 4th screw is behind the black flex.

  • The LCD screen can now be lifted from the right side to be replaced.

New LCD pressure fits into metal carrier tray. Assemble back together upside down, or LCD will fall out of tray.

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

2 from the viewfinder,

and 2 from the IO ports....

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.
