Turn the camera so that the lens is facing you. Do not pull the front panel off without removing the ribbon cable first. Slowly lift the front panel from the camera.

Thank you for this guide. I managed to strip one of the screws holding down the control dial and had to drill it out -- don't send a software engineer to do a hardware job :-) . I also found re-inserting the cables into the sockets pretty painful.

Overall it was a pretty easy fix. Your guide and $9 on eBay (http://r.ebay.com/jbyswX) saved me a $150 repair from Canon.

Thanks again.

No wonder step 6 - the part that says 'gently lift the flap' is written in red. The 'flap' is glued onto the camera, and 'lifting' it simply breaks it off the camera, never to be returned. It was all going so well until this point; now I have to take/send it to an engineer and hope it can be fixed. I would ignore this part!

Thank you for this excellent guide. I had a pressure popped LCD screen rendering the camera useless! However, your guide and £14.99 for an Amazon spare part, plus about 20 minutes following your guide and I have a fully working camera. Those ribbon cable are tricky though!
