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.

There are six screws attaching the back housing to the camera. Remove the screws from the body with a PH000 screw head. Two 1.5x2.5mm screws on the right side. Two 1.5x2.5mm screws on the underside.

Deck the Halls
With tools and Fix Kits
After removing the screws, use a metal spudger or plastic opening tool to push the back cover out. The metal spudger can damage the plastic housing, so use caution when applying any pressure to it. Use a plastic opening tool to reduce the risk of damage to the housing.

  • Remove the back housing of the camera by lifting it directly up.

  • 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.
