The screen is now connected only by a small cable that runs to the rear board of the camera. Using tweezers, slowly pull the cable out of the connector. For best results, grip the cable as close to the connector as possible. The screen should now be separate from the camera body. Be careful not to harm the connectors on the lens so it will reconnect successfully.
