    • Remove these screws.

    • There are also 2 screws that hold the small metal piece at the bottom of the image on - remove those as well (not circled in picture). In the middle of the orange ribbon there is another screw that needs removing (below the top-right screw that is circled in the image). Remove that as well for a total of 7 screws.

    • Remove these tabs.

    I never had to disconnect any ribbon. With the screws out I was able to lift the panel enough to get my fingers behind the panel to push the Plexiglass protector screen off of the camera. note: On my T2i the screen is mounted on the outside of the camera. I guess if you are really, really ,really careful, you don't even need to take the camera apart at all (although I don't recommend this because you could damage the LCD screen underneath inadvertantly), you could just pry the broken screen off the camera body & replace. Of course I didn't know this until I got the camera apart. $7.00 for the part & $7.49 for the screwdriver set and this 56yr old mom has a camera good as new!

    • Lift the broken screen and remove it. Then replace the new screen and attach the tabs that were removed in step 5. Replace the battery and turn on the camera to make sure it works.

On step 5, there is a screw in the bottom left that you haven't shown in the photo.

On step 6, there are 2 ribbons that you have to take out. The 1st ribbon on the RIGHT just pulls out of its white connector.

The 2nd ribbon on the LEFT is a bit trickier, but not hard. There is a grey slot that is locking the larger ribbon in place. You need to pry that grey slot/level open so that you can take out the ribbon. Important detail!

There also should be instructions regarding how to replace the screen. For example, if you have just an LCD (and not a backlight to go with it), then you need to remove the LCD from the backlight.

If your order came with a backlight, then you need to take the little silver case that all the screws screw into, and remove it from the backlight, and install it onto your new LCD/Backlight. Should have pictures for that.

Also, the battery cover (that you take off at the beginning) and the SD card cover need to be ON and CLOSED, otherwise the camera will not power up. I was trying to test it to make sure it powered on before I put all the screws on, but left that out, so it wouldn't power on! Good ol' Dad says to me: "Should you put the battery case on?"

Saved me from a big headache! Repaired a very very broken screen for only $30. I thought that the camera was toast!

Couple of steps are missing, but all the essential ones are there. Nice guide, I would rate it “easy“.

Some comments, in addition to Andrew’s:

- for the people who see those small connectors for the first time, it would be nice to explain that the part of the connector has to be pried open before disconnecting the cable.

- the top right screw from the step 6 was not there. Insead, I had to remove the screw that is seen on the image under the ribbon cable n the right side.
