    • Your camera should now look like the camera in the photo.

    • Flip the camera over and pry the back shell of the camera off with the plastic opening tool (or credit card or guitar pick). The screen-side of your camera should now resemble the camera in the second photo.

    • Note: removing the back shell does not require removing anymore screws, it should just snap off.

    • Remove the metal casing by lifting up the old screen and unscrewing the 5 screws circled in the first photo.

    • The LCD screen has a ribbon going to the main circuit board, as shown in the second photo, that needs to be detached.

    • Your camera should now resemble the third photo.

    • The new screen is now ready to be attached. Plug the replacement screen into the main circuit board in the spot outlined in the first photo.

    • Then re-attach the metal casing by aligning it with the screw holes and replacing the screws removed in step 5.

    • The screen can now be placed in its original position.

    • Repeat steps 2-5 in reverse order to reassemble the camera.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow steps 1-5 in reverse order.
