  • There are four 0.1 mm screws holding the front and back of the camera together all along the outside of the camera

  • There should be four screws

4 screws or 5 screws? In the first photo above, there is an empty screw hole to the left of the screw that is circled. Are we to remove this screw? What about the 2 empty screw holes above, on either side of the S/N?

  • Remove the six designated screws sized 0.1 mm from the metal plate using a Phillip's Head screwdriver in size PH00.

Are there 6 screws or 3 screws? There is one that is being unscrewed in photo; there is another above it in the corner, and then there is one along the top underneath a tiny rubber disc. Where are other three screws? The three in a triangle in middle of metal plate don't seem to be connected to plate.

Why is lens assembly lifted up in this photo? Is that a necessary step? Please explain.

  • Carefully remove the LCD screen by pulling it away from the camera. Repeat these steps in reverse order to install the new LCD screen.

How does one attach LCD cable back to circuit board through metal plate? This is extremely difficult. I just spent 30 minutes trying to do this and I think I punched a hole through the LCD trying to force it into slot with screwdriver through tiny slit between metal plate and camera body. WARNNG: do not try this repair until detailed instructions to attach LCD cable onto circuit board. I'm sure there is a trick, but you need to know the trick before starting this repair. Are we to remove lens assembly and circuit board to attach LCD cable? I think there are missing steps in this repair.

Everything about these repair instructions are incomplete. There are more screws than noted here and access to where the wiring harness goes is not at all explained.

Shouldn't the replacement LCD screen be considered a part? It is in fact very difficult to replace it without having the part to replace.
