Great job guys! Was successfully able to install the lens and put the camera back together to working order. Thanks for saving me $250

Thanks for not telling me to push on the display. When I pried off the front cover I broke the disply ribbon as the display was stuck to the front cover.

Please people for future check that the display is not stuck to the cover. The ribbon is so thin you dont even feel it tear.

Now i no display on me hero ...3. in tears...
