Could you direct me as to where to find a new replacement screen? I bought one from eBay, but for some reason it does not have the small brown ribbon cable removed in step 9. I can't find one that does?

Same thing happened to me. Avoid purchasing DHcamera replacements, either the small ribbon is missing or the large ribbon is too short. In addition, the model missing the small ribbon is the glass only, and does not have the metal housing.

BTW, your instructs are perfect!!! Good work. Now, if I only knew where to find the right part.

Hello,

is it possible to remove the backlight from the broken lcd and then mount it over the new lcd screen?? If so, how? Thanks...

I have the same problem. Bought a LCD screen in Ebay and sent from China. The backlight is missing.

It seems like complete assembly screen is very hard to find. Searched in Google but nothing. The problem with my camera's screen is that borders and corners had been becoming dark progressively, perhaps to backlight problem.

Perfect instructions/guide! Only bit that may be missing is highlighted by the questions above - most replacement screens that you can buy online come without the silver metal casing and backlight.

The additional step therefore is to gently pull the top of the silver frame apart - perhaps a thin chisel screwdriver or blade will help ease it out. Then gently prise the old LCD screen from the white coloured backlight. I used a blade to start the seperation. Then I just laid the new screen on and pushed the silver flame back together
