[Guide] K-01 disassembly/LCD Screen replacement.
Posted By: nixcamic, 11-25-2014, 09:53 AM

A while back I smashed the LCD screen on my K-01 (Well actually, American Airlines did, but anywho).

I found an LCD screen but couldn't figure out how to get the dang camera apart. Apparently Pentax hired some Chinese puzzle box designers to do the engineering on it

Anywho, after giving up on finding instructions anyhow I figured "Heck, it can't get any more broken" and just took it apart. I figured I'd write it up so that other people don't have to go through the trouble I did, so here it is:
