    • Split the camera from the battery compartment down. You can use an opening tools, or just your fingernails, if so equipped.

    • This will remove the front part of the case.

    • Remove this screw on the right side of the camera. Keep it separate from the 4 screws previously removed. The are of different length

    • Remove the screw on the bottom of the battery compartment. Keep this screw with the one removed on the previous step. These two screws have a different length than all the other screws. They are the shortest ones in the camera

    • With those two screws removed, you can not separate the back part of the case.

    • Flip the LCD to the right and out of the frame. Do NOT try to remove it yet.

    • Remove the screw screws that hold the LCD frame to the logic board. Keep the 3 screws separated from the rest of the screws, due to different length.

    • With the frame removed, the connector and LCD cable are now fully accessible. Note the to tabs on the cable and their position on the logic board.

    • Flip the tab on the connector carefully up and remove the LCD.

    • Hopefully this is what you will get after replacing the LCD and reassembling the camera in reverse order. Total replacement cost was $15 and 30 minutes of my time.
