Remove the two ribbon cables holding the LCD screen in place. Pull them directly out of the port they are plugged into. Take care not to tear these ribbons as they are the communication network that your screen uses to operate. Now that your LCD screen is detached you can pull it apart from the rest of the camera.

I'm also finding where was the white parts located. It seems that without this part, wx80 works well. If you found its location, please give me hint. Thanks.
