Nokia 6500 Classic disassembly

Nokia 6500 Classic disassembly

Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver & small flat head screwdriver or some kind of metal lever

First remove the battery cover, battery and memory card.

Run your fingernail around the edge of the join of the top cover to unclip it then remove this part.

Now remove the camera surround. It'll be stuck down with double sided tape so just peel it away. Also remove the clear camera window, indicated by the arrow. Your phone should now look like below

Push the front cover up the remove it. It'll just slide off.

Your phone will now look like below.

Use a metal lever like a flat head screwdriver to pop the LCD frame out. Use the lever on both sides of the phone.

Pull the LCD frame towards you. You'll now be able to access five screws which hold a metal plate in place. Unscrew these and lift away the metal plate to access the connector from the LCD. The LCD will still be attached to the phone at the bottom by a ribbon which attaches like a plug and socket. Just lift this up to unplug it.

You'll now have the LCD frame (and LCD) removed.

The LCD will easily pop out of the frame and allow you to replace it. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
