    • The parts are very small and fragile and can break easily.

    • With the back off, spin the LCD screen back around.

    • Using the plastic opening tool, gently lift up the holder that keeps the ribbon in place.

    • Gently slip the ribbon from its housing.

    • When this step is completed the camera will separate from the LCD screen. From here on you will only be working with the camera itself.

    • For the next step make sure to be careful so as to not break any of the clips that hold the camera's two halves together.

    • With the bottom of the camera facing you grasp each half of the camera and gently pull the halves apart.

    • There will be some slight popping sounds as the clips release.
