Sony Ericsson W380i disassembly

Sony Ericsson W380i disassembly

Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver, a plastic tool such as a credit card.

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

Release the bezel shown below. You should be able to remove it by levering it out with your thumb nail. Some force is required.

Now remove the sticker which surrounds the screen. It'll peel off pretty easily. Remove the four screws you can see.

Next remove the display window that covers the LCD screen. A little force is required to remove this. It's held in place with some tacky glue.

Run your plastic tool around the join of the cover to separate it into two parts.

Your phone should now look like below.

Remove the two circled screws. You now need to detach three ribbons, indicated by the arrows. The black part of each connector is a hinge. Lift this up and you'll be able to slide the ribbon out.

You can now remove the circuit board.

Carefully lever the screen out from the point indicated by the arrow.

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