BlackBerry 8800 disassembly

BlackBerry 8800 disassembly

Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a credit card or guitar plectrum

First remove the battery cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the four screws you can see.

Run something like the edge of a credit card along the join of the bezels on each side of the phone. A little force is required.

Your phone should now look like below.

Starting at the bottom of the phone, separate the battery compartment from the rest of the phone. It may need to be levered off near the top of the phone. Just slide your credit card underneath to release the battery compartment.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the two screws you can see (circled).

A connector (circled) attaches the LCD screen to the circuit board of the phone. This attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the ribbon connector up, away from the phone to detach it. Lever the LCD from the point shown by the arrow to remove it.

The LCD should now be loose and can be removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
