Introduction

This guide will demonstrate how to locate and remove the lens assembly.

Begin by removing the 5 screws (located: 2 screws on either side and 1 screw on the bottom) using the PH000 head in the Precision Phillips Screwdriver. These screws were missing in our example. These screws should have been small Phillips PH000 screws 1.5mm in length. These screws are very small. To keep from losing any pieces, place all small metals on a magnetic project mat.

Using your hands or an opening tool, pry off the silver frame, taking special care at the top of the camera where the buttons are as it is a little harder to pry off. If the back casing is loose from the camera body, it may be easier to perform step 4 first, then accomplish this step. Proceed as your unit allows.

The last part of the casing to disconnect is the back that houses the LCD screen. The screen is attached by a connection ribbon. Gently pull the casing and screen away from the camera body to disconnect the casing. The LCD screen is held onto the back casing by a small amount of adhesive. This may come loose during this process. Do not worry if they become separated.

After the casing is removed, use your fingers to carefully lift up on the rubber pad, if it didn't already fall out during step 4. The pad isn't secured to the camera so it will lift up and pull away easily. After the pad is removed, the 2 Phillips head screws holding the control board will be exposed.

With the hinged connectors folded up and out of the way, carefully pull the ribbons out of their connectors. These are the only 2 connectors holding the lens assembly in place. If disconnected the lens assembly will be completely detached from the camera.
