Pry case open with a metal spludger by slipping the spludger between the back and front case of the camera and wiggling the spludger forwards and backwards.

  • Be careful not to damage the inner components of the camera when slipping the spludger into the camera.

Painful to see the damage to the upper housing here done by the spudger. Don't do it this way! There is a hidden ninth screw that you can only access when the flash is opened and you look straight into the flash housing. That ninth screw is what's causing the damage in the picture. You MUST unscrew it to be able to remove the back housing without damage!

Carefully unhook the silver strip with tweezers. Get a grasp of the sides of the silver strip with the tweezers, and pull upwards and out. The strip may also be identified by its blue tip, which becomes more visible once pulled out.
