But doing so is non-trivial insofar as, from what I have read, I would need to use a strong suction cup to forcibly yank off the plastic LCD screen cover and then hope the 2-sided tape used to hold it in place is still strong enough to hold it back in place when I put it back on.

Beside that, are there any other serious caveats to opening the 50g myself?


UPDATE: A kind individual sent me a PM to say that removing the clear LCD cover on his 49G broke a "dust seal" that is in place by the 2-sided tape to keep the dust out. So I must assume that removing the cover on the 50g would be the same, and knowing how 2-sided tape usually works, it probably would not be as precise a seal going back on as it was prior to removal.
