    • The battery door has been removed in these photos, but this step is not necessary.

    • Flip out the screen. There are four Philips #00 screws securing the black plastic case.

    • The screws are located symmetrically: one on the left side, one on the right side, and two on the bottom (on either side of the hinge).

      • Detail of a 2x2.5mm side screw.

      • Detail of the two 3x4mm bottom screws.

  2. The back of the case is held on by four snaps.
    • The back of the case is held on by four snaps.

    • Using plastic opening tools, pop the back cover off. Start from the bottom of the case, by the hinge.

    • The locking tab and its spring (at the top of the screen; marked in red) are loose and may fall out. Keep the screen horizontal when removing the cover.

    • Replace the tab and spring during reassembly, if removed.

    • Pull straight up to remove the front panel.

      • This gives access to both the screen and the underside of the screen protector, allowing either or both to be cleaned.

    • Slide the screen assembly forward and off of the hinge mount.

    • With a spudger, opening tool, or fingernail, pop up the clip on the wide ribbon cable.

    • Using tweezers, slide the dark brown portion of the connector down. This will release the lower ribbon cable.

    • Slide both cables out of their connectors.

    • Pry the circuit board off of the adhesive on the back of the screen. Use a spudger or opening tool.

      • The metal frame is loose at this point. You may want to flip it up and out of the way for this step.

    • The circuit board is flexible, but be careful not to permanently bend or break it!

    • Remove the LCD screen.

      • If the adhesive makes it too difficult to remove the circuit board, try heating the screen slightly. Be careful not to let the circuit board or screen overheat.

When I open my D5000 i found out that the Blue and Orange wire on the board was disconnected and had no Idea where it goes (until i saw in the picture then I figured it out). But Overall I managed to assesmble the LCD and was feeling great. Although everytime I change the LCD view upsidedown, it doesnt respond to it unlike putting the view left or right (that works..i wonder why?). Thanks for the guide

Hi, I also have the blue wire disconnected. Despite this, my screen appears fully functional. Anyone knows what this wire is supposed to do..?

Thanks, the guide is perfect!
