Introduction

In this replacement guide, you will be tasked with removing the screen. If your screen is cracked, make sure to handle the part with care, as some pieces of glass could fall off. To prevent this, put clear packing tape over the screen to keep it intact. Always remember to remove the battery before you take the camera apart.

I need to replace the screen and keep the. White around it. How do I do that

nicole deltondo - Reply

You have to use a hair dryer on high on the screen until you can get it loose from the white frame. Carefully pry under the screen with a small screwdriver or a plastic tool to get it loose and then run the plastic tool around the edges until it is loose. It is held in by some type of double sided tape.
