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!
a #00 phillips screwdriver a prybar (plactic manacure looking stick)
-there are 6 screws on the back housing, -then 2 screws on the motherboard -then 3 silver screws on the slide -then another 6 screws on the back of the front housing -gently slide small tabs on lcd out of front keypad, when reinserting new lcd, insert ribbons to white line -reassemble
you can dig into the two pieces of housing with the pry bar, it will not damage the phone
Take off the back plate that houses the battery, undo the four screws, then look where the bottom of the battery is just below are two cover caps remove and undo the two screws below now separate the cover. There is a circuit board under neath the panel unplug may seem tight but go careful, underneath this there are a futher six screws undo these and the two halves of the phone will separate. Now undo all the screws you can see here including the two that are under the two covers at the top they look like moulding marks separate the halves, undo the screws on the roller switch,lift this and you will find a ribbon connector that appears to be glued it's not, go careful and separate. Congratulations you have now removed the LCD. All you have to do now is remember which screw goes where and reverse the whole process. Good luck.
After a while, the battery becomes slightly loose, so battery connection is intermittent. Simply put a small wedge (small piece of cardboard) at the top of the battery compartment, so that when you renisert the battery, it forces a tight connection on the bottom connector. I have fixed 5 phones this way. Intermittent connection causes the blutooth to drop, and battery to appear to not hold a charge well. THIS IS SO SIMPLE, yet nobody knows about this! It's worked on EVERY VX-8700 I've tried it on.
I found one on ebay for $25, it's really not that bad to replace, just take your time, and take out the phillips head screws, take the battery out first and then remove the 4 screws, then take out the 3 screws securing the pc board, then remove the 4 lower screws, and then the 2 on top near the camera, under the rubber covers
