Now that the camera's outer casing has been removed, we are ready to begin disassembling the camera's inner workings.

Using a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the single small black Phillips screw just to the right of the mode selection dial.

Once the screw has been removed, the entire LCD and control board assembly will hinge up to the right. Be careful as it is still connected to the main logic board by two ribbon connectors.

Using your finger or a plastic spudger, carefully lift the black tabs on the two ribbon connectors shown in green. The ribbon cables can then be removed from the logic board and the entire LCD and control board assembly can be lifted free of the camera.

The proprietary Sony I/O port connector is attached to the main logic board by a single ribbon cable. Using a spudger, gently lift the black tab on the connector and remove the ribbon cable. The I/O port can now be removed.

If you are replacing a cracked LCD panel, you can easily do so at this point. This is also one of the most common things besides the lens that is broken on a camera.
