Nokia 7500 Prism disassembly

Nokia 7500 Prism disassembly

Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a credit card or guitar plectrum

First remove the battery cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the two screws you can see.
Run your plastic tool around the join of the front cover to unclip it.

With the front cover removed your phone will now look like below. Remove the four screws you can see.

Lift the circuit board, with the LCD screen still attached, away from the body of the phone, like below. Two clips (circled) hold the metal frame to the circuit board. Release these.

Your phone should now look like below.

Turn the phone over. Circled is a small metal box which covers the connector from the LCD screen. This needs to be removed. A few clips along each side hold it in place. These clips can be easily levered away.

You now have access to a ribbon connector. The connector attaches like a plug and socket. Lift the connector away from the phone to unplug it. The LCD screen will now be free.

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