Very well presented and helpful - thank you.

It sems important to use the correct screwdriver and my impression is that the screws are JIS rather than Philips.

So far I have been unable to locate a replacement screen with back light (I assume the back light is connected by the narrower ribbon cable).

I  Like my Panasonic  DMC-TZ3  , paid 300 way back in 2007  and has flawlessly  perfect, till I Dropped it in the case  …

IT still take pictures,  store on Memory, etc  all functions work , and can down load to computer ..

BUT the Back LCD  I can barely see unless I put a LIGHT to it ….

SO I assume I screwed the Back Light,  … can anybody help ?

Hi…. the backlite cable might have come loose or damaged. I would disassembly the unit and re-insert the backlite cable to see if that does the trick.. Otherwise you would have to invest in a new Display ASSY or backlite. A used backlite or Display assy is not that expensive and easy to replace..
