Remove dust inside a Sony Z7 LCD screen

Since Sony’s HVR-Z series camcorder, i have noticed a weakness on the preview screen design. The screen is between two plastic covers and it’s easy to have dust or even water getting inside it, between the lcd and the back-light. It happened first with my FX1 with one rain drop and i was pissed to see something on my brand new Z7. Shanghai is a dusty city!

Flip over the screen and unscrew the 2 small screw. That will unlock the two cover part.
