Nokia 5000 disassembly

Nokia 5000 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver

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

Use something like a guitar plectrum or the edge of a credit card to unclip the front cover.

You should now have the cover and keypad removed, like below. Remove the four screws you can see.

Lift the main body of the phone away from the back cover. Lift from right to left, like below.

Your phone you now look like below. The LCD screen is attached to the circuit board by a ribbon. This connects like a plug and socket. Simply lift the connector (circled) up, away from the phone to unplug it.

Two metal clips on either side now hold the LCD frame to the circuit board. Unclip these and lift the frame from left to right.

Your phone should now look like below. You'll notice another ribbon (circled) is still attached. To disconnect this ribbon, gently pull the metal frame in the direction of the arrow and it'll slide out.

Your phone should now look like below. The LCD screen is now easily removed from the frame.

You can now replace the LCD. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
