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.
