Most cameras are not that hard, if you are careful and willing to make notes of where each screw came from. Be sure to get the correct screwdriver to fit the screws correctly and use enough pressure directly to loosen each screw...this is quite important, because if you strip the screw's head, it can be messy. Most LCD screens are directly under the back cover, and can be replaced usually, once the back is off, remove three or four screw which will hold the LCD frame on. Once that is loosened, then you can carefully remove the screen and see if you need to remove anything else before loosening the cable plug. Take care here, because there are a few different ways these cables may be connected. Some are simply pushed into a connector. Some have a socket which has locks which must be loosened to remove the cable. These little sliding plug connectors are delicate, so you must take it slow and not rush the job. Some of these fold up to loosen, some simply slide away a bit to loosen the plug lock. Most anyone who has done any delicate work on anything electronic will understand what I am talking about here. A repair manual may be able to be downloaded for free, but you may have to be a member (usually free) in order to download manuals. Some may charge a small fee for the pdf file. Hope it all works okay.

Mine broke too. Luckily I have another S500 with a different problem so I swapped LCD's and got one working. If you can find a replacement LCD theyr'e not too hard to replace: 2 screws on each side and 2 on the bottom. Gently pry case apart. LCD is held in place by 3 screws but remove the flex circuit connector first by lifting the small black lever(that runs the length of the connector) and gently pull flex connector straight back. I work on small instruments so I'm used to this kind of work. If you feel unsure, have a tech look at it. The problem I'm having is finding parts. Good luck.
