LG KS360 disassembly

LG KS360 disassembly
Tools required: Phillips size 0 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

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

Slide something like a credit card in-between the housing and battery compartment, as shown below. This will release the back part of the phone.

With the back of the housing removed, your phone should look like below.

Lift the circuit board up at the bottom, then flip it over from left to right.

  • The circled connector needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it away from the circuit board to unplug.
  • You can now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone, as shown below. Remove the four screws you now have access to and you'll be able to lift another layer of the housing away.

  • Your phone should now look like below. Six screws need to be removed. Three of these screws will be covered with small blue stickers. Just lift them off with your screwdriver. They're not needed so don't worry about damaging them.
  • Now slide your plastic tool all the way around the join of the front cover to release it.

  • Your phone should now look like below. Two connectors need to be disconnected. Again, these attach like a plug and socket. Just lever each one up to unplug.
  • Flip the keypad membrane up and then slide your plastic tool under the LCD screen. It will be stuck down lightly.
  • You should now have the LCD screen removed. Peel off the green sticker, indicated by the arrow. Another ribbon needs to be disconnected. Release this by flicking the brown latch back and then pull the screen away from the green circuit board.

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