This camera had a few problems, but I started off by replacing the broken LCD. This is a nice camera to work on; it was a straight forward task to complete.

Step 1 — LCD ¶
Here is the broken LCD. The spider crack in the glass, as well as the discoloration of the screen, is clearly visible.
Remove the battery and the memory card from the device, if so equipped.
Remove the two screws on the left side.
Step 2 ¶
Remove one screw from the bottom
Remove the two screws on the right side.
Use a plastic opening tool, or your fingernails, to split the casing apart. Start from the battery compartment and work your way around the case. The case should split easily.
Step 3 ¶
Once the back of the case is removed, the LCD becomes immediately visible.
Remove the LCD from its holder to gain access to the connector.
Open the connector, and flip the black clip upwards, freeing the LCD. It can now be removed and the new one installed.
