Re: change of front casing

When dismantling any phone, great care should be taken to ensure that no damage is caused to any of the parts. Rough handling may result in severe damage of many parts, and if proper anti-static procedures are not followed, electrostatic damage may result in any electronic component.
Before commencing, it is recommended that the correct tools are purchased for the job in hand - at the very least, you will require a Torx T6 screwdriver.

Step 1. Release the battery cover.
Step 2. Remove the battery cover and the battery.

at the top of the phone.

Step 6. Now slide your shim along the sides of the A cover to release all the remaining clips.
Step 7. Now lift up the A cover.
Step 8. Use your shim to release the keypad.
Step 10. Carefully lift the PWB unit - bear in mind that this is glued in place.
Step 11. Remove the PWB unit and screen.
Step 12. Release the flex at one side,
Step 13. and then at the opposite side.
Step 14. Now lift away the PWB assembly.
Step 15. Release the LCD connector.
Step 16. Separate the screen from the metal shield.
Step 17. Release the camera guide assembly.
Step 18. To remove the camera you should use a specific tool which is not publicly available. This step is included here purely for the sake of completeness.
Step 19. If you have removed the camera unit, please take note of the correct positioning of the unit for reassembly
Step 20. Half close the phone and release the main flex assembly connector.
Step 21. Carefully slot the flex connector through the C cover.
Step 22. The power switch is glued in place and can be levered out using your shim.

Step 1. Release the battery cover.
Step 2. Remove the battery cover and battery.
Step 3. Remove the four Torx T6 screws in the order shown below and keep them safe.
Step 4. The screws are supposed to be replaced on reassembly, but in practice you can reuse them.
Step 5. Using a thin shim release the clips on the D cover.
Step 6. Remove the D cover now that all the clips have been released.Step 7. A specific tool is supposed to be used to remove the camera assembly which is not available to the general public. This step and the following one are included purely for the sake of completeness.
Step 8. Take note of the correct orientation of the camera for reassembly.
Step 9. Lift up the main PCB.
Step 10. Use your shim to carefully release the flex connector

Step 11. Lever up the keypad using your shim - bear in mind that it is glued in place.
Step 12. If you have been careful removing the keypad you may be able to reuse the glue gasket otherwise it will need to be replaced.

Keypad 5130c

i expect that some of the digit in that particular cellphone is not working. if you want to clean your key pad then you need to open it. removed the battery cover, the battery, back cover, untill you see the 6 screws that holds the front cover. Removing the screw will automatically remove the front cover and will show you the key pad. if you want to check the digit which is not working then you fix the battery and holding it firmly press the power On button. assuming that you already know what digit is not working then you can proceed by removing the plastic cover of the keypad and by using pencil eraser you can clean it.. from 0 - 9....

      Turn off your tablet and turn the unit over. Use the tip of your small Phillips screwdriver to pop the rubber pads off of the screws on each corner of the rear of the unit.

    • 2
      Remove the four screws from the corners of the back of the tablet.

    • 3
      Insert the tip of your case opener tool in the seam where the front and back halves of the unit meet. Work your way around the sides, popping the internal locking clips as you go. Continue until the two halves separate.

    • 4
      Unplug the screen ribbon which runs from the back of the screen in the front half of the unit to the motherboard located in the back half of the unit. Set the back half of the unit aside and you will see the back of the LCD screen in the front half of the unit.

      Remove the LCD screen from the housing and fit a new one in its place. Reverse the steps for reassembly.

I was using net by my phone and now it does not boot only vibrate while booting

Hi there,

Is there any incidents that you dropped the phone? In this case you may probably damaged the phone esp.. the unit LCD screen.

But FIRST try to remove the unit battery for a while. This will soft reset the unit and restore and restart the unit to previous setting that is working. Power ON the unit, if the issue was still there and the phone screen has no display, there was a problem on your phone, you need to ask for someone for professional help you open and fix the unit, or iut better to bring the unit to authorized service center. The LCD may need to be replaced or it only need to clean and re-aligned it again to it electronic contact.

Let me know if the above information helps and for further more assistance.

Thank you for using fixya.

LCD screen broken, have parts, want to know how to change them

THIS is what everybody else leaves out!!! first open ur phone and there are four sticker pads in the corner, use something with a sharp point to remove. Then use a phillips screw driver to remove the screws. the top with now come off, next there is a ribbon cable from the touch screen to the screen itself, On the connector there is a small plastic lever u will need to flip up in order to release the cable. Use a solder iron to remove the wires and it helps to write down on a paper where they go! do NOT LEAVE THE IRON ON THE WIRES TOO LONG!!!!! just enough to melt the solder and remove the wire, same for putting the new ones on! Next carefully remove the screen, it is held in place by sticky tape, be careful not to crack the cover, just be patience and do it slow! and put the new screen in in reverse order!!!! hope this helps!
