Nokia 6600 Fold disassembly

Nokia 6600 Fold disassembly

Tools required: Torx 2 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the two screws you can see.

The camera cover will now be loose and can be lifted away from the phone, as shown below. The circled connector needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug.

The image below shows the connector after it has been disconnected.

Slide your plastic tool around the join of the front cover. Start on one corner, as shown below, then do the same on the opposite corner.

Your phone should now look like below.

Now open the flip and the phone will separate into two halves, as shown below. Pull the metal bar in the direction shown.

Your phone should now look like below.

(Have a look at the image in the next stage before proceeding in order to understand what you're trying to achieve in this stage). Turn the top half of the phone over and it'll look like below. There is a gap at the top of the phone (circled top left) that the ribbon needs to be slid through. Lever the ringer (circled bottom right) away from the phone. It'll be stuck down with double sided tape. Then pull the ribbon in the direction shown by the arrow. A connector will release. This connector slides in and out of its socket, unlike the previous connector.

Your phone should now look like below.

Now slide your plastic tool under the edge of the display window to release it This part is stuck down lightly with double sided tape.

Your phone should now look like below.

Now lever the part shown below. Hold your finger over it as you do so to stop it shooting off somewhere and getting lost.

You can now replace the LCD screen (the screen cannot be removed from the housing so you need to replace the whole part. This can be bought from the link at the top of this page). Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
