    • Slide the orange latch outward towards the corner of the camera.

    • The battery should pop out.

    • Remove the battery and reattach the cover.

    • After removing the battery, unscrew the four 3.10mm screws on the side opposite the buttons.

    • Unscrew the three 4.05mm screws on the bottom of the camera below the lens.

    • Unscrew the two 4.05mm screws on the side next to the buttons.

    • Gently wedge the flat end of the spudger between the back case and the wrist-strap mount.

    • The wrist-strap mount is the thin metal piece on the side of the camera. Your camera may have the wrist-strap attached, but you will not need to remove it to continue.

    • Carefully pry the back case away from the camera and then gently lift it off.

    • Having removed the back case, the LCD screen should be sitting loosely on the camera, attached only by a wide ribbon and a narrow ribbon.

    • The ribbons are connected to and held in place by small plastic latches.

    • To remove the wide ribbon, gently pry the spudger underneath the black plastic latch where the ribbon connects and lift up. The ribbon should slide out easily.

    • Repeat the same process with the smaller ribbon, this time looking for a light blue latch.

    • Gently remove the LCD screen.

    • After removing the LCD screen, unscrew the four 3.8mm screws that hold down the metal plate

    • Unscrew the 2.5mm screw next to the wrist-strap mount.

    • Position the camera with the lens facing down and the shutter button facing you.

    • Lift the metal plate away from the camera without removing it fully. There is a ribbon attaching the edge of the plate to the camera.

    • The ribbon is being held in place by a black latch.

    • Carefully pry the spudger under the black latch and lift gently upward. The ribbon will slide out easily.

    • With the ribbon unlatched, the entire metal plate should now be detached.

    • Desolder the marked areas. For desoldering instructions go -here-

    • Place the spudger underneath the small black tape as shown. Gently lift the spudger up to remove the tape.
