Introduction

This replacement is a straight forward job. It only requires a few tools, a bit of dexterity, and patience, particularly during the removal of the rear case.

Remove the batteries and the memory card from the camera, if so equipped. The batteries can be located on the bottom of the camera, and the memory card can be located on the left side of the camera. Remove the three screws on the bottom of the camera, where the battery hatch is located. Remove the two screws on the left side; this is one of two short sides and is the same side of the memory card storage.

  • The rear case is snug due to the catches. While using the opening tool, gently pull on the back case so it clears the catches. Do not use too much force, or it may break the plastic of the case.

Separate the rear case from the camera by wiggling the opening tool. You should have a clear view of the LCD in its frame. Lift the LCD out of its frame, but do not fully detach it yet. It is still attached to the camera by two ribbon cables. Lift the LCD out of its frame, but do not fully detach it yet. It is still attached to the camera by two ribbon cables.

Slide the LCD screen down and out of the frame, so that the two ribbon cables underneath are now visible. The main ribbon cable uses a clip to secure the cable to the connector. The smaller ribbon cable uses a compression clip to secure the cable to the connector. Push the compression clip away from the connector with your fingernail or a small tool. Moving the clip a few millimeters will fully detach the LCD from the camera.

ps under the lcd are two screws to take off the lcd mount but first u need to remove buttons ribbon cable. be careful since the ribbon cables are cheap injust watched the gold connecter flake off mine so my repair is foiled litterly. plus i noticed corrosion on the usb/kodak connector and more corrosion at the top at cn0901 and cn0902 maybe thats why the camera was taking bad photos with lines and pinkish colors. i am going to snip some ribbon cable off to try and fix it. The white cable is what give me problems.

fixed the white cable on the left under lcd by snipping off a bit. thankfully the contacts arent stacked like the other cables. by taping the sensor i am taking better photos.

i keep a bottle of 95 percent isopropyl rubbing alcohol with a small short bristle artists brush (1/4 inche wide flat type) to wash aside much of the debris and corrosion when i do electronic camera work.. when moisture gets in (it always does!) from perspiration, temperature changes, or 'left out in the rain", there will eventually be problems. storage conditions must allow for some free air flow to let any accumulated moisture release back into the atmosphere. all those perfectly tight camera cases will only keep moisture in if it is already there. batteries are a nightmare when they start to leak the corrosive chemicals that make them work, remove them!
