Sony Ericsson P990i disassembly

Sony Ericsson P990i disassembly

Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a credit card

Remove your back cover, battery, sim, stylus, memory card etc. Remove the six screws you can see. The screws are all different lengths so need to go back in the correct holes. To make it easy, the screws circled in red are a red colour, the screws circled in silver are silver and the screws circled in gold are gold.

Pull the flip in the direction shown by the arrows to remove it.

You should now have the flip removed.

Wedge your credit card or plastic tool in the join at the top of the phone, as shown below.

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

You should now be able to remove the back of the phone with very little force.

Your phone should now look like below. Next pull the front cover away from the main body of the phone. It should come away with ease.

Your phone should now look like below.

Now disconnect two ribbons (circled). The ribbon connectors attach like a plug and socket. Simply lift up to unplug. The circuit board is held in 4 clips around the edge of the phone (indicated by the arrows). Bend these back a little to release the circuit board. You'll now be able to lift away the LCD screen and frame.

Your phone should now look like below.

Pull the LCD away from the frame, like below. Turn the frame over and guide the ribbon from the LCD through the gap in the frame.

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