I've had my GL1 since 2000, and haven't had any of the problems I've been reading about over the years (dead pixels, etc) but recently the LCD screen stopped working unless I turned it all the way around until it flips over. I saw another thread where someone had a similar problem.

I'm thinking of opening up the LCD and dinking around, but wanted to know if anyone has opened one up, and what I can expect. Are the ribbon cables that come unplugged easily accessible? (do they come loose in the main camera housing, or in the LCD housing?). Will I need to solder anything?

Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to send the camera off and blow a few hundred dollars on a 7yr old camera.
