Question about LG VX8350 Cellular Phone
I need some help with how to disassemble my VX8350 so I can replace the Inner keypad housing which uncludes the female portion of the hinge. I have removed the 4 screws that I can find inside the battery housing case lid, but it does not seem to release the inner keypad housing from the base.
I was able to take apart a VX8350 I have with a broken screen. I don't see any way to replace just the hinges with replacing the whole top part of the phone including the screen. The ribbon cable from the screen runs through the hinge part into the main assembly of the phone. It appears the cable can't be removed without cutting it.

You can in fact separate the two halves of the phone at the hinge to get the ribbon cable out. You just need some manual dexterity.
The outside of the hinge (on the keypad shell) is hollow on both sides. On the ribbon cable side, the inside is also hollow, and slips inside the outer socket using a hollow pipe-in-pipe joint. The ribbon cable runs through both hollows.
On the other side there is a solid post (usually yellow) extending from the inner hinge (display shell) into the outer socket (keypad shell). The trick is that this post is spring-loaded. There is a tiny port in the keypad shell through which you can push the post inward until it clears the outer hinge socket. You will need a skinny angled tool like a 45° spring hook. Then the two parts of the case will separate and you can remove the ribbon cable and replace the upper electronics if you wish.

The cable running from the earpiece top half of the phone down in the main bottom half can be unplugged. There's a large flat connector on the bottom half of the cable. You can pop it out gently. Then you can feed the cable through the top half of the case. The case is replaceable, just be very careful. To reassemble you need to flex the bottom portion of the case to spread it a bit. This will let you ease the hinge top part into it.
