Sony Ericsson W960i disassembly

Sony Ericsson W960i disassembly

Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver

Remove the battery, back cover, stylus and your memory card. Remove the two torx screws and one cross head screw.

You can now remove the camera surround by running your fingernail around the join.

With the camera surround removed you now have access to two more torx screws. Remove these.

You can now remove the front cover by running your fingernail around the join then lift from right to left as the front cover is still connected by a ribbon on the left side. If this disconnects it simply pushed back in like a plug and socket.

With the front cover detached you can now see the ribbon refered to in the above step (indicated by the screwdriver in the photo below).

Pull the LCD screen towards you and you'll see the ribbon connector which attaches the screen to the circuit board. It attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.

You should now have the LCD screen removed and you can replace with new. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
