LG KF700 Virgo disassembly

LG KF700 Virgo disassembly

Tools required: Phillips screwdriver

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. At the top of the phone you'll see two little plastic plugs. Lift these out two reveal two screws. Remove these two screws plus the other four you can see.

Starting near the bottom of the phone, run your fingernail, or something like a guitar plectrum, all the way around the join of the battery compartment to unclip it.

Your phone should now look like below.

You now need to detach a ribbon connector, indicated by the screwdriver below. It attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it. There is also a small connector circled in pink. Be careful with this as the wire it's attached to is quite delicate. Lift the gold, metal part up to disconnect it.

Pull the printed circuit board back to reveal another ribbon. It attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the three screws you see and detach the connector, which is circled in pink.

Lift the printed circuit board from the bottom of the phone. It's still attached near to top by a silver metal sticker on each side. Carefully peel these stickers back.

Your phone should now look like below. You now have access to two more screws. Remove these.

Lift the part shown below away from the phone. You now have access to four more screws. Remove these.

Starting at the bottom (where the silver screws were), separate the two parts of the phone. A little force is required near the other end.

Your phone should look like below. Unplug the ribbon connector you can see (circled).

As you now try to lift the LCD away you'll notice the the ribbons behind it are glued down. Carefully peel them all away from the LCD.

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