  • Gently, lift the screen using the plastic opening tool as shawn in the picture.

The screen replacement I purchased does not have the black tape at the end of the ribbon cable. Will this make a difference in whether the screen will work?

- Of the two 2.60 mm screws on the bottom of the camera, only the one closest to the back needs to be removed.

- The correct screwdriver is JIS Type S #00. A Phillips driver can ruin the screws.

- The screen shown in step 5 consists of two parts: the LCD and a frame. The replacement LCD that I ordered came without the frame, so a little more disassembly was required, including a bit of delicate soldering: the narrow ribbon cable is really two cables, soldered together. The solder joints are hidden under the piece of black electric tape at the end.
