Sony Ericsson W880i disassembly

Sony Ericsson W880i disassembly

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

Remove your back cover, battery, sim, memory card etc. Remove the two rubber stoppers, circled. Now remove the two screws you can see.

Remove the sticker, shown below, and the two screws you can now see.

To release the front cover, run something like a credit card all the way around the join.

You should now have the front cover removed. Next release the two clips, circled below. Then lift the keypad part from left to right. It'll still be attached by a ribbon on the right side. The ribbon connecter attaches like a plug and socket. To unplug simply lift it up.

Your phone should now look like below. Circled is the ribbon connector from the LCD. The connector has a black hinge which you flick back to release the ribbon from the LCD screen.

Now lift the LCD away from the phone. It should come away easily. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
