  • NEW: Steps 8–11 (Removing the LCD Assembly) are unnecessary and can be skipped!!! Instead of the step shown here, you may access the Flash Assembly from the side of the camera—unscrewing it from the metal bracket that is attached to the inner frame. (The bracket will be clearly visible after removing the back and front covers—sorry, no photo!) Note that the Flash Assembly is also held to the bracket by 2 small posts along its plastic body; after unscrewing, pull the assembly gently away from the bracket to unseat the posts.
