For Christmas I received a protective glass cover for the LCD on my Canon 7D. It had adhesive strips around the edges to adhere it to the camera. suffice it to say that it did it's job, but now it is pretty well cracked, and I need to get it off so I can replace it. Has anyone done this before? I don't want to start trying to peel it off (it's on pretty solidly) if there is a better way to do it.Thanks for any help.

Jim

You could try fishing line to get behind the adhesive and "saw" through it. I know folks who do this to remove automotive badging without scratching the paint.

If its still stubborn maybe try a hairdrier set on low to warm up the glue and then use the fishing line.

Lastly you could try some sort of adhesive remover, Goo Gone is a good one. I would apply it with a Q tip around the sides of the adhesive strips. Be careful not to drip any in or on the camera.

Hope this helps.

Any kind of solvent or heat will probably soften the adhesive holding the Canon-supplied LCD cover to the body, as well as the LCD protector-protector you attached to it. Every Canon DSLR I've yet seen has a protector over the LCD straight from the factory. And it's generally tougher than anything you could put on it.

Instead of fishing line try unwaxed dental floss.
It has a rougher surface and still won't hurt
the stock LCD.
