Sony Ericsson C702 disassembly

Sony Ericsson C702 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver

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

Use a thin plastic tool, such as a credit card, to remove the camera cover. Slide your tool all the way around the edge of the join to release this part.

The camera cover should now be removed, like below. Now remove the two screws you can see at the top of the phone.

Run your plastic tool all the way around the join of the front and back of the phone so you can separate these two parts.

You should now have the phone in two parts like below.

Wedge your plastic tool down the side of the aerial, as shown in the picture below, and lever this side out. Do the same on the other side

Lift the circuit board from the top to remove it.

Your phone should now look like below.

Release the two clips holding the aerial in place. Lift this part from right to left. It will still be connected on the left side by a ribbon.

You now need to disconnect the ribbon. The ribbon connector, circled, attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug.

Disconnect the next ribbon, circled, in the same way as the one in the last stage. Disconnect the clips (a few of them are indicated by the arrows below) that go all the way round the edge of the phone. These are holding the LCD frame and circuit board together.

Lift the circuit board away from the frame from right to left. It'll still be connected on the left hand side by another ribbon. Disconnect this like the previous connectors.

Your phone should now look like below.

Four metal clips hold the LCD in place. Bend these back.

  • Two clips on the left side of the keypad membrane need to be released allowing you to lift this part from left to right.
  • Carefully slide you plastic tool under the LCD and it'll pop out.

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