Introduction

Use this guide to replace a scratched or damaged back plate.

This guide requires removing the back housing of the camera. When replacing the housing, use a PH000 screwdriver. The cover is well secured, so some force may be needed to remove the screws as well as the cover.

  • The back cover may be slightly tight, therefore more force may be needed to lift it up.

Note:

There are 3 locking cam-lugs along the top edge of the back plate. These slot over the top of matching very delicate moulded catches. Carefully lift and lever this top edge first.
