Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Digital Camera
I had an issue with my LCD display going out on the camera and have since ordered a replacement part, but my problem is this I can't figure out how to open the case. I have removed all the visible screws and the bottom portion of the case opens, but seems to be stuck on or in the top portion of the case. Has anyone taken apart one of these cameras before? Is there a latch or hook or something I am missing?
There is a lock tab at the top next to power switch. Gently pry bottom of back away from body and look at crack along the top. As bottom is rotated up and out tabs should disengage. If needed a slight lift of back opposite switch should do the trick.

Most electronic packages today use a combination closure of screws and tabs that interlock at mating points. It appears that you have found the latter method and are "stuck". No, I have not opened one of these, but I would try to determine where the mating tabs are located. Sometimes you can "feel" these tab locations by slight bending of the plastic body. Where it is stiffest to bend, that is usually where a tab is located. Also, sometimes mating parts use an additional "slide-locking" method where the mating parts must first slide laterally to unlock. In worst case if a tab breaks after repeated attempts, you can re-attach the tab using super glue and then (after drying) use a solder iron to make a few "spot" welds to mate the plastic tab by melting it to the shell body.
