  • This cable is a long piece that runs across the top of the camera.

  • The flash assembly is connected to this cable.

  • Once removed gently lift out of the camera

  • Replace the ribbon cable with the attached flash assembly.

The display at the back needs also to be removed, because underneath is a long tiny black screw that keeps the flash assembly in place. After this is removed, the flash assembly can be carefully jiggled, and finally gets out. Again it requires some patience and jiggling to get the new unit in place.
