Remove the existing LCD Screen
LD-002R originally comes with black tape and some times it may be hard to remove. Follow this youtube link to learn how to get the screen out from the machine. If your screen too tightly glue to the machine, you may use Hot Gun or Hair Dryer to heat up and slowly take the screen off the machine.
Install the Screen Riser & LD-002H Screen
After removed the screen, install the Riser on top of it, then put the double sided tape at the side of the screen.
put the screen on top of the riser and tape it with black tape at the side to prevent resin leak. Screen protector is recommended to covers the bezel and the screen as the screen is much expensive and you wouldn’t want spoil by resin leak.
Install the limit switch adapter mod
Since the screen has been raised around 2mm, the limit switch must change so it will detect early otherwise it will crush on to the screen. the adapter mod must be printed in black otherwise the optical limit switch will not detect the trigger.
