Bonjour ! Es-tu bien sûr d'avoir déplacé les deux languettes bleues vers l'intérieur pour libérer l'écran ? Si oui, n'hésite pas à appliquer une certaine force sur l'écran (appuyer et déplacer vers toi).

Keine chance das Display zu bewegen. Nach 1h versuchen und allen FP2 Tutorials Videos bin ich immer noch gleichweit. Definitiv Verbesserung würdig. Für weitere Tipps bin ich dankbar, wird es sonst wieder zurück senden :-(
