LG Shine KE970 disassembly

LG Shine KE970 disassembly

Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver

Remove the back cover, battery and four screws you can see

Next remove the two rubber caps at the other end of the phone. Underneath are two more screws which you need to remove

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

Your phone will now be in two parts, like below

Lift the camera assembly from right to left, as shown below. This part is held on by a ribbon which connects like a plug and socket. Unplug the ribbon by pulling it away from the camera assembly

With the ribbon unplugged you now have access to six more screws. Remove these. Note the wire below. It is soldered on so be careful with this as it is very difficult to replace if damaged

After you've removed the six screws from the previous stage you can again separate the phone into two parts. The two parts are held together by another ribbon which you can see disconnected below. Remove the 4 screws you can see

There are two more screws to be removed, which are covered by sticky pads, shown below

You can now remove the front cover and access the LCD. Run your fingernail along the edge of the housing to separate the two parts

Lift away the keypad part giving you access to two more black screws which you should now remove

Now flip the LCD over to access the ribbon. The connection is covered by a green sticky label. Remove this and you can then remove the LCD by gently pulling it out

You have now removed the LCD. Replace with new and reverse the whole procedure for reassembly
