Samsung J600 disassembly

Samsung J600 disassembly
Tools required: Phillips size 0 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a credit card or guitar plectrum

Remove your back cover, battery, sim etc. Remove the four screws you can see.

Remove the Samsung sticker, as shown below. Now remove the screw you can see.

You can now remove the battery compartment, as shown below. You may need to run your plastic tool around the join of the housing to release it. Next you need to disconnect the ribbon, circled. This attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the connector up, away from the circuit board to unplug it. Two ribbons also run along each side of the phone. These are stuck down lightly with double sided tape and simply peel away.

Lift the green circuit board back, as shown below, to reveal another ribbon connector (circled). Again, this attaches like a plug and socket. Simply pull the connector away from the circuit board to unplug it.

You can now remove the circuit board, as shown below.

Remove the identification sticker to reveal six black screws. Remove these and you can then remove the next layer of the phone, sliding the ribbon through the gap as you do so.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the two silver screws that hold the black slide mechanism in place. There are also two black stoppers below the screws which need to be removed. They can be levered out.

Move the slide mechanism to the top to reveal two more black screws which need to be removed. You also need to remove two rubber stoppers at the top of the phone (circled) and then the two screws underneath.

Now run your plastic tool around the join of the housing to separate the phone into two parts, as shown below. The three circled parts need to be peeled back carefully (they're stuck down with double sided tape).

Pull the LCD screen away from the front cover. Now released the circled ribbon. To do so, flick the black latch up and then pull the ribbon away.

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