Samsung Omnia i900 disassembly

Samsung Omnia i900 disassembly
Tools required: Phillips size 0 screwdriver

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the four screws you can see.

Use a thin plastic tool, such as a credit card, to separate the front and back cover. Slide your tool all the way around the edge of the join to release them.

  • The back cover should now be removed, like below. You now need to detach three connectors (circled). The small gold connector on the left with the thin wire leading from it needs carefully levering off. The connector far right has a black hinge which needs flicking up and the other connector attaches like a plug and socket so simply lift this up to unplug it. Now unscrew the two screws you see.
  • The picture below shows the phone after the connectors have been released and the two screws have been removed.
  • Flip the circuit board over. There are two more connectors, circled, which need to be released. Again, one has a hinge and the other attaches like a plug and socket.

    You should now have the circuit board removed, like below.

    Peel back the sticker, as shown below.

    Your phone should now look like below.

    Lift the camera assembly from right to left. Be careful not to damage the thin wire on the left when you remove it.

  • Your phone should now look like below. Now remove the two screws you can see.
  • The front bezel will now be loose. Lift it away starting at the bottom of the phone.

    Your phone should now look like below.

    Lift the keypad away.

    Now remove the keypad membrane. It will be stuck down with double sided tape at each end.

    Slide your credit card around the edge of the screen to release it. It'll be stuck down with double sided tape.

    Your phone should now look like below. Now slide your credit card between the touch screen (digitizer) and LCD screen.

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