    Do NOT pry until you’ve removed the eye gasket, and the 2 screws behind this! You will break the camera.

    The circled screw on the bottom in the middle isn’t a screw, it’s an alignment nub. The 4th screw is behind the black flex.

This guide is NOT COMPLETE. THere are several missing screws that need to be removed.

2 from the viewfinder,

and 2 from the IO ports....

Do not follow this and force the back open or you will need more repair!

Hi, I followed every step and replaced the LCD screen but when turned on the camera, I only got a yellow horizontal line. Do you know what could have gone wrong? Thank you.

I had problems connected the actual LCD component to the controller card, as seen in step 9. We need more illustrations for actually connecting the ribbon cables (plural!) and for actually mounting the LCD and the controller card.

11romej is correct. There are an additional 4 screws that must be removed not still not shown in the tutorial as of March 29, 2019. Much easier to accomplish this repair with a fine tipped pair of tweezers.

I can’t get the hinged piece to stay closed and keep computer ribbon on back of LCD screen in place. Any suggestions.
