Nokia 3500 Classic disassembly

Nokia 3500 Classic disassembly
Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver

First remove the battery cover, battery and sim card. Next remove the two screws you see

Run your fingernail all the way around the join of the front cover to unclip it.

Your phone will now look like below. Now remove the four screws you can see.

Remove the main board from the housing.

The LCD is held in place by a metal frame which is held to the PCB with clips around its edge. Unclip the frame but be aware that the LCD is still connected by a ribbon in the top right corner. The LCD is held in the frame by one clip on each side. Release these clips.

You should now have the metal frame removed and the LCD will still be attached to the circuit board of the phone.

Turn the circuit board over. A small metal box surrounds the ribbon you need to unplug to release the LCD screen. This box can unclipped with a fingernail.

Your phone should now look like below. The ribbon you need to detach attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.

You should now have the LCD screen removed and you can replace it with your new LCD. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
