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.
