Answers :

Persenaly I would not attempt this repair my self, I learned that lesson the hard way, with an laptop. Specialy if the camera is still under warrenty as you will void it. However if not I would look on the net to see if I could get instructions on how to take the camera appart, and put the camera back togther again.
