Once all screws are removed, gently pry open the front casing with your hands or plastic opening tools carefully. Do note that there will be a spring that attaches the front casing and the main circuit board, so refrain from allowing excess tension on the spring.

Locate the IR blaster, remove the connecting wire ribbon by prying the connector latch open on the motherboard, then sliding it out. Once the wire ribbon is disconnected, the IR blaster can be lifted away from the motherboard.

Where can I find the replacements (ir blaster)? What is the function of this part. I dropped my camera and the flash won’t turn on and films develop completely black even in broad daylight.
