You first should get the valance out of the way, look up inside there are about 4 Phillips screws you will need to remove, then you will see all the remaining screws to remove the blind.
Now for the blinds if you have the patience anyone can restring their own blinds, BUT if you want look on the bottom of the blind and you will see the company who makes them with a phone # and you can mail back as many as you need redone and the company will do it for a nominal fee, Just saying.
As for WHY you had such a issue with what seems a large number of shades is the fault of FR, they pull the strings WAY to tight in the factory and it wears out the strings VERY FAST. When you reinstall them you only need a small amount of tension under the mounting screw, instead the factory pulls them very tight (thinking them will not fall during transit) I found this out myself after getting a few sets of my own back from the blind company and they sent with them instructions to "reinstall" the tension on the strings and i have not had any problem with the falling or wearing out anymore.
Good luck and i hope this helps and Happy Camping
