Unplug these 5 plugs. These plugs are stiff but there are no clips or catches to release. I used a combination of pliers and miniature side cutters to grip the two edges of each plug and work it loose.

Remove this plug by pressing down the back of the plug to release the catch

Gently remove this thin ribbon cable by pulling back the plastic plug then pulling out the cable. Untape the ribbon cable from the board.

Later models have an extra wire here that needs to be unplugged.

Remove this larger plug by squeezing the two ends to release the clips. On later models, this plug is underneath the board, so you will need to release it while you are removing the circuit board

Hint: With so many small plugs it is easy to leave a plug under the board during re-assembly. Clipping a long wire to each plug makes them more obvious.

Hint: Take a picture showing how the small plugs are connected on the main circuit board to help re-assembly because the plug arrangements vary slightly between projectors.
