Samsung P520 Armani disassembly

Samsung P520 Armani 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 four screws (circled) and then two screws on each side, indicated by the arrows.

Run your plastic tool around the join of the battery compartment to release it.

Your phone should now look like below. Note that when you remove the battery compartment two of the buttons on the side will also fall out (shown in the picture below). The circled connector needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug. Also remove the two circled screws.

Now pull the circuit board towards you. It'll still be connected by a ribbon (circled). Remove the green tape then flick the black latch up and pull the ribbon away.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the two screws you can see.

Now, starting at the bottom of the phone, pull the chrome bezel away from the main body at the phone.

Your phone should now look like below. Lift the keypad away from the phone (it'll be loose).

Another ribbon (circled) needs to be disconnected. Remove the green tape then flick the black latch up and pull the ribbon back.

Turn your phone over the slide your plastic tool in-between the grey part at the screen in order to separate them.

Your phone should now look like below.

Now slide your plastic tool in-between the front of the phone and the LCD screen. The LCD screen will be held in place with double sided tape and a little force is required. Please note: at this stage that the front of the phone has two visible layers. There's the display window, which is the top layer, then the touch screen underneath. These layers are stuck together and should not be separated. You are only trying to separate the LCD screen from the front of the phone.

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