LG Chocolate KG800 disassembly

LG Chocolate KG800 disassembly
Tools required: Phillips screwdriver

Remove the battery and four black screws you can see

Next run a fingernail along the edge of the housing to separate the phone into two parts

Your phone will now be in two parts. Remove the four silver screws you see and keep these aside as they are shorter than the other screws you'll encounter and need to go back in the right place or the slide will not work

Unclip the two ribbon cables (they connect like a plug and socket) and remove the circuit board which they were attached to

Your phone will now look like below

The top part of the circuit board you see is attached to the main part of the phone by another two plug and socket type connectors on the opposite side. Unclip these and put the loose part to one side

You can now see two more silver screws. Remove these and keep them with the other four silver screws

They grey part will now be loose and can be removed, as pictured below. Remove the four silver screws you see. Keep these separate from the six smaller silver screws you removed earlier

The next two screws you need to remove are hidden under two small sticky plastic pads (indicated below). Lift these up and remove the two screws

Run your fingernail along the edge of the housing to separate this section of the phone into two parts

Twist part of the housing to the side slightly until another connector can be seen (indicated below). Unclip this connector

To remove the screen you first need to detach the ringer from the back of the screen. It is attached with double sided tape. Be very carefully when detaching the ringer from the screen as it is attached to the phone by two wires which can break very easily

The screen will be attached at the other end by a ribbon. Note how the ribbon attaches (so you can see how to attach the new screen) then firmly pull the screen away from the circuit board

Replace the old screen with new and you're finished. Reverse the procedure above for reassembly
