Drop in water, can't get case open

(Quote:
Did you find the two screws located under the two round rubber dics located at the back top of the cell phone? If you remove the two round rubber discs you will find screws under them. Once you remove those screws you will be able to remove the one plastic frame.)
Found and removed screws, still can't get case off. Seems to be a fastener close to the camera lens.

If your phone ever gets wet best thing to do is take the battery out as quick possible put the phone in a brown paper sack with rice and seal it up leave in a warm place for a day at least to get out all the moisture always works for me

Bought a SGH-C417 off ebay. The flash cards are compatible. (I'm using my wife's now.)

I never got the back off the darn thing, but it's dry. No condensation on screens. When I put the battery back in, the light behind the keys light up and the ******** goes off. This continues until I hit the power button, Phone will the go dark and be unresponsive.
Call me redneck suspicious, but I suspect this is planned obsolesce. I know there is a moisture detecting strip in the phone to indicate if it has ever been wet. I just wouldn't be surprised to find a planed fail point built in also. I've use way to many electronics after a good dunking to believe that EVERY phone that ever gets moist dies.

LG VX8350 got wet


This just happened to me when my son dropped it in a glass of water this morning. You have to remove the battery and the 2 screws behind that plate and the 2 toward the bottom of the phone, then remove the small red plastic piece at the top back. There's another screw behind that. Then you can carefully pry the plate off. For the front plate you have to open the phone and remove ( I used a pin) the 2 little rubber nubs at the bottom of the screen. Then remove those 2 screws. Then, starting at the top front, carefully pry the front plate off. The front plate didn't come off as easily as the back one for me, but I was eventually able to get it with a flathead screwdriver without anything getting damaged.

Tip

Samsung SGH-X150 disassembly, take apart.


How to take apart Samsung SGH-X150 Black Cell phone:

16d4a0e.jpg


Time Required: 10 to 15 minutes.
Tools needed: Precision tools, Small philips screwdriver, Case opening tool or a plastic stick, or your fingernails.
Difficulty: Easy

Step 1. Remove the back cover, battery and sim card.

Step 2. Are you replacing the screen? Or are you looking into the keys or the mainboard?

If you wish to get to the display Go to step 3.

If you wish to get to the keys and the mainboard Go to step 4.


Getting to the display.

Step 3.
To replace the display, unscrew two Philips screws from the bottom of the display, they are under two soft tabs that you have to remove from on top of them.

Step 3.1. Use your fingernails or case opening tool to open the display cover.

Begin from the back and work towards the top, open the back and the sides, do not force open the front its held in place from there and you need to pull the plastic cover off looking at the picture below to the left

Step 3.2. After the cover is off, you get to the back of the display, on the top you have a few speakers etc.

Step 3.3. From the bottom release the connector by carefully pulling the board upwards.

Step 3.4. From the top, use a flat screwdriver to get the speakers out of their slots so the circuit board with the display comes off.

Step 3.5. The display is now free from the cover, you can remove it from the case.

Getting to the mainboard and keys.
Step 4. With the back cover, battery and sim card out. On the back of the phone, there 4 Philips screws. Marked with red dots.

Step 4.1. With the 4 small screws out, start using the case opener tool or your fingernails to release the plastic casing from the back of the phone. It is held in place similarly as the top of the phone in step 3. Begin from the sides and the bottom of the phone, the top is held in place and won't open until the sides and the bottom are lose, then you can disconnect the top part.

Step 4.2. As you release the back cover, on the side the up and down plastic key drops out remember to replace it properly when you assemble the phone.

Step 4.3. Disconnect the display cable, the mainboard is held in place by plastic clips on the top, carefully release the mainboard, you may break off a clip or two from the case, if that happens, no worries. The screws will still hold the casing together. the area is again marked in red.

By now you should have the phone completely disassembled / taken apart.

We are done.

Assemble in reverse order. Total 6 screws in this phone, 2 on display 4 on case. Held in place mostly by plastic clips.

Thank you for reading, I hope this has helped you.

The little square silver magnet is located next to one of the black torx screws in the cover. If you are looking at your phone with the cover open and the keys right side up, it is the black screw under the rubber plug on the right hand side. The edge of the magnet fits into a pocket that is molded next to the screw hole in the inside half of the cover. Since you have already opened your case you probably know to use a #T7 torx screwdriver for these screws. I hope this helps. --Mike.

Samsung sgh-a707 repair


Did you find the two screws located under the two round rubber dics located at the back top of the cell phone? If you remove the two round rubber discs you will find screws under them. Once you remove those screws you will be able to remove the one plastic frame. Be careful, there are two places that you will need to disconnect in order to completely remove the insides from the frame. If they are not disconnected you will not be able to remove the main brain of the phone. The 1st one is easy to see but the 2nd one is not as easy. You must be careful anytime your working with these components.

Keys won't work on sanyo mm 8300 phone


I used a very small eyeglasses-repair flat-bladed screw-driver that was the same width as one side of the tri-angle screw head to remove the screws on half of a sanyo scp-8300 phone that I found on the road. I do advise caution when releasing the hidden plastic clips around the edge of the phone where the seam between top and bottom is. Once open, you will find a ribbon-cable that leads to the top half of the phone, a rubber pad that has all the keys on it, and the phone's circuit-board, where there is a white plastic sheet overlaying the actual physical buttons mounted on the circuit-board. My advice would be to gently clean the rubber key-pad with warm water and dish-soap. Also, check for sticky gunk around the edges of the key-holes in the plastic case of the phone, if you find some- carefully wash it off with a wet tissue or a cotton swab, use rubbing alchohol if it won't clean off. But, be aware that some plastic can melt or turn gooey when cleaned with alchohol, or it might just remove the color from it. Hope this helps, TechnoWolfy.

How to disassemble a pantech c300


I used a micro screw driver set that can be purchased at Home Depot. There are two hidden screws: one on the top piece where the display is and one on the bottom piece where the keyboard is. The hidden screw on the top piece is under a silver rubber circle at center bottom of piece. The hidden screw on the bottom piece is under a silver rubber water drop shape located by the antena. These rubber covers can be removed by wedging them out with a mirco flat screw driver or pin.


Good luck...
