BlackBerry 8700 disassembly

BlackBerry 8700 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the three screws you can see.

Run your plastic tool around the join of the battery compartment to release it.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the four screws you can see.

You can now remove the front cover, as shown below.

Lift the circuit board away from the rest of the housing.

Two clips on each side of the screen hold it to the circuit board. Lever these back a little to release the screen. The circled connector also needs to be released. To do so, flick the black latch up where the ribbon enters and then pull the LCD screen down, away from the circuit board.

You should now have the LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
