I did it!!! Sweat bullets, nearly damaged the LCD ribbon connector (a really difficult task pulling this up, be careful!!) but now camera is back in 1 piece and works. Thank you for your tutorial. I know I will NOT start a career changing these for others. Too nerve racking !!

I have a messed up usb port. I’m sure I could change it out . Where could I find a replacement usb/HDMI assembly?

How can you remove the battery compartment? Mine has battery leakage and the center battery tube is full of electrolyte. I need to get that housing out and the center contact clean. Any ideas?
