The title says this is a lens replacement, but isn't it in fact an LCD replacement?

This is truly a terrible guide. There are numerous steps missing, steps in the wrong order and little or no description of where and how to apply any pressure to separate or remove parts. I’m glad I didn’t follow this guide as I quite likely would have ruined my camera, or at the very least caused more and quite possibly expensive-to-repair damage. I strongly urge ifixit staff to investigate this guide and remove it, or to at least strongly warn anyone who is contemplating following it.

Hallo David,

mit dieser Anleitung habe ich schon mehr als 20 Displays gewechselt und es ist mir noch nie etwas kaputt gegangen. Es fehlt auch nichts was man hätte noch schreiben können. Wenn Du Angst hast etwas kaputt zu machen lass die Finger davon.

Hier rumkritisieren ist schon ein bisschen unverschämt, diese Übersetzung schreibe ich in meiner Freizeit! Du kannst ja eine neue bessere Anleitung schreiben aber vermutlich bist Du jemand der die Finger von solche Reparaturen lassen soll. So eine Reparatur erfordert Sachverstand, wenn es Dir mit dieser Anleitung nicht gelingt, fehlt Dir dieser.

Gruß Detlef

Entschuldigung,

nach dieser Anleitung habe ich schon 20Displays gewechselt ohne das etwas kaputt gegangen ist.

Wenn man sich dieses nicht zutraut oder 2 linke Daumen hat, Finger weg!
