Could you direct me as to where to find a new replacement screen? I bought one from eBay, but for some reason it does not have the small brown ribbon cable removed in step 9. I can't find one that does?

Same thing happened to me. Avoid purchasing DHcamera replacements, either the small ribbon is missing or the large ribbon is too short. In addition, the model missing the small ribbon is the glass only, and does not have the metal housing.

BTW, your instructs are perfect!!! Good work. Now, if I only knew where to find the right part.

Hello,

is it possible to remove the backlight from the broken lcd and then mount it over the new lcd screen?? If so, how? Thanks...

I have the same problem. Bought a LCD screen in Ebay and sent from China. The backlight is missing.

It seems like complete assembly screen is very hard to find. Searched in Google but nothing. The problem with my camera's screen is that borders and corners had been becoming dark progressively, perhaps to backlight problem.
