Samsung G600 disassembly

Samsung G600 disassembly
Tools required: 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 six screws circled (two at the bottom are covered by rubber stoppers which are easily removed). You can now remove the battery compartment.

Below you can see the battery cover removed. You now need to disconnect the circled ribbon connector. It attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the connector up to unplug it.

Below you can see the unplugged connector and the camera and volume buttons, which have been removed.

Lift the circuit board up to reveal another connector, indicated by the arrow. It attaches like the last one. Unplug this.

  • You can now remove the circuit board. Note that the ribbon running along the right of the circuit board, with the volume buttons at the end, is lightly stuck down with a tacky glue or double sided tape.
  • Remove the grey part shown below. Note that the ribbon with the camera button at the end is stuck down lightly. Next remove the four circled screws.

    Part of the slider can now be removed, as shown below. Next remove the two rubber stoppers at the top of the phone to reveal two more screws. Remove the four circled screws.

  • Remove the ribbon which is stuck to the black rectangle, indicated below. It'll just peel back.
  • Run your plastic tool all the way around the join of the front cover to unclip it.

    Your phone should now look like below

    Lift the screen away from the phone at the point indicated by the screwdriver and on the opposite side. The screen is stuck down lightly with double sided tape.

    You should now have the LCD removed.

    Turn the LCD screen over and remove all the green tape you see. You now need to detach a number or ribbons. The ribbon circled attaches like a plug and socket. All the other ribbons have a hinge which you need to flick up to release.

    Your LCD should now look like below. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
