Can I replace broken viewfinder on Sony A6000
Viewfinder glass is smashed
A 16.1 MP Sony Mirrorless Camera with 16-50mm Lens released in September, 2012 and discontinued by the manufacturer.
I recently got a broken electronic viewfinder (evf) facing glass a6000 off ebay and I will soon replace it with a viewfinder vf unit assembly from water damaged camera. I found this View Finder VF Unit Assembly from ebay which has changed my mind about replacing the whole evf since it seems that the focusing glass is a separate part than having to replace the evf completely. Found a VF Viewfinder block with display screen Assy that I could also use but since I have the water damaged silver a6000 body I plan to disassemble it and replace it’s vf unit instead. I have the service manual if it helps but I do find the Sony α6000 Motherboard Replacement ifixit more helpful to disassemble the camera.
yep, unscrew the screws holding the screen in,
(There were 2 at the bottom edge and a couple on the back when you tilt it out... )
Then remove the loose(ish) plastic pieces below the back metal plate...
After which, two orange circuit straps..?(not sure what to call them) which connect the screen to the camera body will be revealed.
Remove with tweezers.
Then use said tweezers to insert circuit straps from the replacement screen & proceed to replace the plastic pieces, metal plate & screws.
