Samsung Tocco Ultra S8300 disassembly

Samsung Tocco Ultra S8300 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 below.

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

Your phone should now look like below. The circled connector needs to be disconnected. Just flick the black latch up and pull the ribbon out.

Now remove the circled screw and the one on the opposite side. Both screws will be covered with red stickers.

Lift the circuit board to the side slightly to reveal a ribbon attached to the underside. The connector attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it away from the circuit board to unplug.

Your phone should now look like below. Pull the slider down to access four more screws (circled). Remove these. Now run your fingernail or your plastic tool around the join of the front cover. This will release the clips which hold it in place. The cover will still be attached near the top of the phone so don't try and force it off before reading the next stage of this guide.

The camera cover should now be loose. Remove the two screws you can see. You can now remove the front cover.

With the front cover removed your phone should now look like below. The navigation pad and the part that holds this in place will come away with the cover, as pictured below.

Pull the screen away from the rest of the phone. The circled connectors needs to be released. For each, flick the black latch up where the ribbon enters and pull the ribbon out.

Your phone should now look like below (but without a dotted line around the screen). You now need to separate the LCD and touch screen. To do so you need to slide something flat and thin (the edge of a guitar plectrum would be best) between the LCD and touch screen. Try to follow the dotted line and try not to push your plastic tool too far under the touch screen or you'll get a sticky residue on the underside of it. Applying some heat with a hair dryer may help loosen the touch screen.

You should now have the LCD screen and touch screen separated. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
