Project Description add commentupload similar

I had some trouble with my Leica VLux 1 camera so I took it apart.  Lots of little screws so I made a paper template of the camera, poked holes where the screw would go, and put them in the holes as I took out the screw.  I would highly recommend following this same procedure.  Once I got inside, there were so many wires in a such a small space connected to the main circuit board, that I decided to stop there.  Common mistake: don't yank!  If it doesn't move easily keep looking for screws.  There are 2 behind the LCD screen and 1 in the battery compartment.  Make sure you get them all!
