Where can I found the camera's microphone?

Hi dude. I did all the steps and disassembled the camera and I removed the IR filter from the sensor. All is good until that point. And then I assembled the camera in reverse order but now there is no display on screen. In my first attempt I got the menu working but I got no live view display or photo. Then I re-opened and assembled again. This time there is just nothing. Camera turns on but no display, no messages. the zoom button, on/off and even the video record button works all well but no display.. Any thoughts on this pls?

PS: This is an excellent tutorial by the way. I must have done smth. wrong, otherwise I had no issues on disassembly.

Thanks for the perfect instructions!

I was able to fix “random mode switching” glitch.

Went up to step 16 (skipping steps 12 and 14). Then removed the top panel.

Extracted the scheme and put it into a cup filled with 91% alcohol for 10 minutes. Meantime opened up the plastic part of the mode switcher and applied 2 drops of universal oil. Then took the scheme out of the cup and carefully cleaned it with cotton swabs and alcohol. Sprayed it with cleaning duster. Assembled everything back and so far the glitch is fixed.
