Samsung M8800 Pixon disassembly

Samsung M8800 Pixon disassembly
Tools required: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your stylus, back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Two screws need to be removed, circled below.

Run something like a credit card around the join of the bottom of the battery compartment to release this part.

Your phone should look like below. Remove the two circled screws.

Run your plastic tool all the way around the join of the housing in order to separate it into two parts.

You should now be able to remove the back of the phone, as shown below. Two ribbon connectors (circled) need to be disconnected. To release the top connector, just flick the white latch up and pull the ribbon away from the phone. The other connector attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this up to unplug.

Now lift the circuit board from left to right. Note that it is still attached by a ribbon cable and connector. Again, this attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this away from the circuit board to unplug.

  • You should now have the circuit board separated from the rest of the phone. Circled at the bottom of the phone are two clips which need to be pulled back to release the board for the buttons. Then run your plastic tool between the grey metal part and the front cover. This will release the screen. The screen is stuck in place with double sided tape and removing the screen may be a little easier if you heat it up first with a hair dryer.
  • Your phone should now look like below. To remove the screen from its frame, slide your credit card under the LCD.

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