To remove the motherboard assembly from the camera casing, use the plastic opening tool on the lens side of the camera to pry the motherboard assembly out of the camera housing.

To avoid breaking the plastic on the lens side of the camera (see photo), pry along the edges near the corners.

Try using the plastic opening tool before switching to the metal spudger. We tried using the plastic opening tool to pry the motherboard assembly open, but found that it did not give us enough leverage.

Do not try to pry near the power button side of the camera. This will break important cables inside.
