Introduction

If your screen becomes damaged or broken it may need replacement. Removing the screen is an easy task involving the removal of a few screws and two cables. It is also necessary to remove the screen in order to access several parts beneath, such as the flash battery and lens assembly. Be careful not to tear the ribbon cables when the first screw on the screen is removed.
