jackmorin, I'm just curious; why did you feel it was necessary, to make that your comment of choice, knowing exactly what pollytintop meant; rather than, thank you for the time you put into posting this very helpful information. I would like to say, thank you pollytintop, this was very helpful & I appreciate this detailed information.

I would like to thank the author for putting this info together. I was able to find a video screen for the back of this cam2017era very reasonably on Ebay, and with the help of these instructions, replace the broken screen that had plagued this camera for years. It was with a gre/24/at sense of satisfaction that I can now use the camera with its full features. Thanks again!
