SOURCE: how to disassemble the Samsung brightside cell phone

Don't know if you were able to get this done but I needed to take apart the lcd screen on mine and replace it. in order to get to it you need to start from the back and work your way up to the front.

-preferably a #000 philips screwdriver
-not necessary but I also used a 3/64 flathead screwdriver

1. Take battery cover off.

2. Take out battery

3. Take the #000 phillips screwdriver to take out the six silver screws.

4. Now take out the two black screws that were behind the battery.

5. Slide the phone out now in order to get better leverage to take off the plastic case that protects the circuit board.

6. Now there will be a ribbon cable connected to the circuit board. just pull it off. The cable actually snaps on so all you need to do is pull it off, there is not a locking mechanism for this.

7. you can now take the circuit board off to see the back side of the qwerty board and the slider. remove all of the silver screws on the slider.

8. Now the slider can come off, to make it easier, take off the ribbon cable that is fed through a slot on the slider. The ribbon cable is connected to a square, the square is stuck to the plastic piece by tape and will not hurt anything as you pull it off. Once that is off you can now fee the cable out of the plastic piece that was connected to the slider in order to get it out of the way.

9. Now there are 4 black screws on the back of the lcd cover. take them out.

10. This is stuck on pretty good and I had to use a small flathead screwdriver (I used a 3/64 flathead) and a lot of fandangling to get this piece off.

editor's note: I replaced the lcd so I'll just explain how to do that. I don't know if you needed the window replaced or if it was the lcd.

11. From this point the ribbon cable's port is blocked by a bluish tape. peel that off, and you should be able to see the locking mechanism which is a black bar on the opposite side of the ribbon cable. lift this black plastic bar up and the cable will pull right out. There are two other ribbon cable's on the left side of this port where you will need to do the same thing. These two other ports have the same locking bar so make sure to lift it up before taking the cable out.

12. Last step, the lcd screen is not connected but stuck to the bottom by a tape or some sticky substance. I took my flathead screwdriver and just peeled it off.

13. That was the last step, should be self explanatory from here, just work your way back and make sure all those ribbon cables are snug. I hope this helps, I noticed no one had made a video or made any responses from what I could see toward this subject so after successfully doing this I hoped I'd be able to do someone some good. Peace!

Touchscreen will not work on my Samsung Brightside SCH-U380

Other than a bad digitizer (touchscreen) or connection, sometimes just a tiny bit of gunk/debris gets in that tiny gap that goes around the outside of the screen. That often results in the same problem,, a non-working touchscreen. Take a very thin edged piece if cut plastic as a "tool" to clear out gunk/debris from this gap around the edge of the screen. Some people even have used like the opposite end of a sewing needle (not the pointed end).
Many ppl have fixed a non-working screen simply by cleaning out this tiny edge gunk. Give that a shot as a first step. If you use care, you won't damage anything.

Samsung brightside will not turn on.

If the phone lights up when you plug in the charger it is probably the ribbon cable that flexes every time you open the keyboard. About 25 bucks from Be sure to flip up the little latches on the flex cable ends before attempting to plug or unplug the cable ends.

I want to download pictures that are on the memory card from my old LG Envy phone into my new Samsung Brightside phone. The Brightside won't read the card. Any suggestions?

There are a couple of things that need to be programed in the Brightside if you want to use an SD Memory Card... Go to settings and Memory and choose "save to card". If you have a card that has things on it. Other Samsung phones create folders like "my pix", which Brightside does not recognize. Make sure you use a computer and transfer your photos from "my_pix" folder to the "my_pictures" folder. You should be all set. This goes for any media problem.. videos, music, etc.
