Nokia 6500 Slide disassembly

Nokia 6500 Slide disassembly

Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver

First remove the battery cover & battery. Remove the four screws you see in the battery compartment.

Run your fingernail around the join of each side of the slide and it'll release slightly.

Now use something like a credit card to lift the keypad up.

The front part of the phone will still be connected by a ribbon which attaches like a plug and socket. Use your credit card to lever it off. You'll now be able to lift the top part away from the rest of the phone.

With the two parts separated your phone will look like the picture below.

Turn the top half of the phone over. Pull the keypad part away from the rest of the phone. It's held in place with double sided tape. You'll then have two parts like below. Remove the two screws at the top of the phone

Now push the slider back up and you'll be able to remove two screws at the bottom of the phone.

You can now remove the metal plate, as shown below.

The LCD screen will now only be attached by a ribbon. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Just lift it up to unplug it.

Lift the screen towards you as shown below. The big ribbon on the back of the screen is held on with double sided tape. Just peel it away so the screen is freed.

You have now removed the LCD screen. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
