    • Notice the two connections attaching the back of the camera to the motherboard.

    • To disconnect the white wire, pinch the wire casing and pull directly out from the camera. It will take a very small amount of elbow grease. However, do not force or pry it.

    • To disconnect the ribbon connector, softly pull the back away from the motherboard. It should come undone with little force.

    • Once removed, set the back in a safe place.

    • Now is a good time to remove the small backup battery from the motherboard.

    • Disconnect the small plastic connections on the top left corner of the motherboard by gripping the small plastic portion of the wire and gently pulling out of the connection.
