Inleiding

If you need to remove or replace the sensor in your Olympus C-765 camera, this guide may help.

Instead of film, digital cameras use image sensors to capture images. The sensor works by converting the light captured by the camera into a digital image. If the image sensor is damaged or has stopped working, it may need to be replaced.

The image sensor is located deep inside the camera and requires multiple specialized steps to remove.

Step 4 of this guide requires disconnecting ribbon cables.

Steps 6 and 7 of this guide require removing the motherboard from the camera. Removing the motherboard from the camera involves desoldering components from the camera's motherboard.

Before beginning, make sure to power off your camera and disconnect any external power source.
