Nokia N85 disassembly

Nokia N85 disassembly

Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, torx 5 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the two screws circled below.

The camera cover will now be loose and can be removed. Next remove the four screws circled in the picture below.
Lift the front of the phone up and you'll see that it is connected to the other half of the phone by a ribbon cable. The circled connector needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the two circled screws then move the slider down and remove the two screws at the other end of the phone.

Run something like the edge of a credit card around the join of the front cover to release it.

With the front cover removed your phone will look like below.

Lift the keypad membrane up. It will be stuck down lightly with double sided tape. Slide your plastic tool under to release it. Then unplug the circled connector by levering it away from the keypad membrane.

Now slide your plastic tool under the LCD screen to release it.

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