Samsung U900 Soul disassembly

Samsung U900 Soul disassembly
Tools required: Phillips size 0 screwdriver

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card.

Remove the plastic sticker shown below. It should peel away easily. Now remove the five screws you can see.

The battery compartment should now be loose and can be removed.

Now detach the circled ribbon connector. It attaches like a plug and socket so simply lift it up, away from the phone, to unplug. The part indicated by the arrow will be lightly stuck down. Lift this up carefully.

Lift the circuit board from the bottom, as shown below. You'll notice it is still attached by another ribbon. This detaches like the previous ribbon.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the six black screws you see then pull the slide in the direction shown by the arrows in order to remove it.

Your phone should now look like below.

Push the slide up to reveal four more screws. Unscrew these.

Lift the metal part away from the body of the phone, like below. Slide the ribbon through the gap then completely detach the metal part you just unscrewed. It will be held in place quite tight at the top, where the camera is, so just wiggle it around until it releases.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the black tape indicated by the arrow.

You now need to disconnect the two circled ribbons. These are not connected in the same way as the others. The brown plastic part is a hinge and you need to flick this back to release the ribbon.

Your phone should now look like below, having disconnected the ribbons in the last stage. Lift the green circuit board in the direction of the arrow to release it.

Now use something like the edge of a credit card to lever the screen out. The LCD screen is lightly held in place around the edges by a tacky glue. Be careful when you do this so that you don't damage the LCD.

You should now have the LCD removed. If you are replacing the LCD screen, remove the ribbons attached to the back of the old LCD and reattach them to the new one. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
