Nokia 5200 disassembly

Nokia 5200 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver

Run your fingernail around the edge of the front cover to release the clips which hold the cover in place.

You can now remove the front cover and your phone will look like below. Remove the four screws you can see.

Once you've removed the four screws you can lift away the metal frame which sits on top of the LCD. It will be held in place with clips. Unclip simply by levering the edge of the frame away with your fingernail. Two little pieces of plastic will probably fall out of the frame (shown in the image below). These hold the LCD screen in place and will go back in the frame later.

The LCD screen is attached to the circuit board by a ribbon, indicated below, which attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift this up to unplug the screen.

You can now remove the LCD screen.

Now place the new LCD screen into the frame. Two plastic parts will hold the screen in the frame. The image below shows the plastic part the correct way round. It won't fit in properly any other way.

Below shows the black part slotted in the frame and the white part held the correct way round to go back in the frame properly. Now simply flip the frame over, with the LCD held firmly in place, and reattach to the phone. The best way to do this is to lightly screw the frame back in place then push down on the top of the metal frame where the ribbon attaches and the ribbon will plug back in to its socket. Now simply tighten the screws, push the front cover back on and the job is complete.
