    • Make sure to pull the connector straight down as pulling up may cause harm to the connector.

    • Unplug the button circuit board from the motherboard by unlocking the ZIF connector (gently lift the brown lock that keeps the cable in place).

    • Pull the connector downwards with the tweezers.

    This is not completely correct. In order to pull the connector down without force, the little grey tap on the top of the connectorbox has to be flipped up.

    This particular step cost me the connection to the button curcuit board. I would be grateful for an indication of where I can buy a replacement. Thanks.

    Martin Salamon - Contestar

    You saved my connection. Thank you. iFixit... I'm somewhat disappointed these steps haven't been corrected.

    It's worth noting that I had no luck with tweezers when attempting to remove the ribbon cable. The correct procedure would be to carefully lift the plastic clip with an iFixit spudger and then continue to step 12. The ribbon cable will pull out gently without any other coercion.

    Phil Howard - Contestar

    The clip is a red/terracotta colour, this should be lifted like a lid (the hinge is mounted in the grey housing). The connector should be pulled downward as described. This should definitely be corrected. Thanks for the comments to assist. I added this for extra clarity on the colours only.

    Be careful with this step. I broke the black connector off the motherboard for the small ribbon cable. It is very fragile. You might want to push down on the black connector to hold it in place while gently pulling the ribbon to the right to extract it from the connector. Don’t let the black connect pull up or twist.

1) Step 11 needs to be updated

2) Add Tweezers to the "tools needed" part at the beginning

Otherwise nice instruction

Martin Salamon - Contestar

Nice set of instructions, although I had a real problem at step 11, and I recommend it be updated.

The instructions for step 14 should be copied-and-pasted into step 11.

Looking at the instructions for step 11, it was not at all clear that the brown lock-flap needed to be lifted first, and that the connector would then come out quite easily. Applying tweezers to the connector without first knowing about the brown lock-flap could easily lead to damaging the ribbon cable, as almost happened in my case.

So, for anyone reading this (in case the instruction set is not updated by the author), use the instructions for step 14 when you are at step 11. The connector will come out easily after the brown lock-flap is lifted, and the "connector" is NOT the grey plastic part that you see; it is in fact simply the end of the ribbon cable.

Thank You to the author. This instruction set saved me a bunch of money.

Also about step 11: Twezers may harm the cable. After opening the brown lock you can just carefully let the cable get out on step 13 while lifting the button circuit board away from the camera. On the reverse order,after replacement, twezers are needed to push the cable gently in.

Great instructions and comments, a real help however any ideas where I can get a good quality LCD please?

Jon Mayers - Contestar

Ebay has some cheap options.

emmbee - Contestar

Just amazed myself by carefully following the instructions and changing out the screen. The onIy real concern it that I pushed the large ribbon in far enough so it locked in when I locked the connector back down. I didn’t want to force it too much, and just hope I got it inserted all the way. Dave T
