Nokia 5310 Xpress Music disassembly
Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver

First remove the battery cover, battery and memory card.

Run your fingernail around the edge of the join of the camera surround and back cover to unclip it.
With the camera surround removed your phone will now look like below. Now remove the two screws you can see.
Now run your fingernail around the edge of the front cover to unclip it. You'll now be able to see two more screws. Remove these.

Now lift away the keypad. It'll come away without much force. Again, you'll reveal two more screws you need to remove.

Pull the back of the phone away from the main body of the phone.

  • Your phone will now look like below.
  • Turn the phone over. Unclip the two metal clips (circled in green) and a ribbon (circled in red). The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.

    A ribbon attaches the LCD to the PCB. Unplug this just like the ribbon in the last stage. Now separate the phone into two parts again

    Your phone will now look like below.

    You can now remove the LCD and replace with new. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
