    • Carefully lift the back cover from the camera.

    • Do NOT completely remove the back cover from the camera yet. There is a data transfer ribbon connecting the LCD screen to the motherboard.

    • Press your finger on the top of the latch and pull it down and towards you to open the safety latch and free the ribbon.

    • Be careful when removing the safety latch as it is fragile and may break easily.

    • Slide the ribbon out from its socket.

    • It is now safe to completely remove the back cover from the camera.

Hello Elizabeth,

I have just followed the video’s for replacing a screen on my Coolpix P90.

The procedure was excellent and for an old Australian (born 1931) I never had a problem.

Just one question, is there a special way for reconnecting the data transfer ribbon.

Just cannot reconnect.

Thank you.

Regards, Noman

QLD Australia.
