Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer


Hey, I bought a faceplate for my kyocera slider remix and I have followed the installation tips the site I bought my phone from gave me. Which are as follows:
Easy Installation Tip:
1. Remove 2 small screws that are covered by small sticky pads with a T3 Driver.
2. Remove faceplate with a Pry tool
3. Replace new faceplate onto your Kyocera KX5
4. Screw in the 2 small screws back into the designated place.

and when I called for help wouldn't assist me so don't order from and expect help. Anyway I assume the two screws are the ones on the back of the panel that slides but there are two screws down below behind the slide I cannot get to. It says to pry it open but those screws look like they are in the faceplate currently on there and will break the slide off. please help.

I had the same problem and I was lookin on a forum/blog on how to do this,but not many helped.I'm about to attempt to change my faceplate and I noticed when you take the battery cover off,there are 4 screws under the cover,and one near the antenna.You probably have to take apart the back part of the phone to get to the screws that are attatched to the sliding part of the phone.Its probably a little risky and tricky,but Im guessing thats how you get to the 2 hidden screws.

Found this on Howard Forums. Sorry no photos.


Take off your battery, unscrew the screws on the back of the phone with a T6 screw driver.

Pry off the back plate,lift up circuit board gently(be mindful of flex cable) remove the flex cable from mail board by lifting brown part by the connector,

Unscrew then next 2 set of screws(be careful of flex cable!) remove the LCD board from the faceplate.

Now put the LCD Panel into the new faceplate. Find the new back slide and put your sliding rails on.(you may also put the slide magnets on from the old housing) carefully thread your flex cable through the opening.

Snap the Back slider on and then screw in the screws, then take the keypad housing and screw it into the slide rails.

Reconnect the flex cable by putting the brown hatch up(gently with finger nail) gently feeding the cable into the connector until the white line is about to the end of the connector.

Then put the brown thing down and apply little pressure.

Put the mail circuit board back into the phone with the headset jack going in first.

Then snap it back into place.

Transfer your speaker over the the new back housing with the prongs facing up.

Then screw on the back housing.

Replace battery and your DONE!!!

Best of Luck.
