Remove the square, clear, rubber protector from the front of the logic board.  This is not necessary to remove, but can easily fall off and get lost during later steps.

Remove the last screw holding the tripod mount to the case. The LCD ribbon threads under the mount, so upon reinstallation, the ribbon will need to be threaded through before the mount is reattached. Take note of the tripod mount orientation.

Pull the back light ribbon from it's socket to remove the LCD completely. There is a little hole you can stick the spudger into to help release the ribbon.

Followed the steps and replaced the broken screen. Now I get only a white screen when turning the camera on. It does take pictures but it won't show anything but a little red dotted arrow on the right hand side over the white screen. Do you have a clue of what is happening?
