Question about Cell Phones
Hi, i am trying to dismantle a samsung D840 TO REPLACE FLEX/RIBBON HAVE TAKEN 4 SCREWS OUT, AND 1 IN AMONGST THE COMPONENTS,BUT DONT SEE ANY MORE SCREWS I CAN TAKE OFF TO
GET ACCESS TO FLEX RIBBON,DONT WANT TO FORCE ANYTHING
You have acted correctly up to this point.Now free the button pads on both sides from were they are stuck down they are attached to the main board so be gentle you only need to move them off the plastic boards they are fixed to.Now remove the grey square of tape in the battery compartment and unplug the little black wire from the main board it just lifts off. now lift up the main board from the battery compartment end and as you lift it a plug in flex will detach itself turn the main board up at an angle and you will see the flex attachment underneath.Take the green plastic off and flick the hinge to remove the flex,it is soldered on both sides like a lot of samsungs but if your replacing the flex just tear it and work on it when the board is removed.This next part is where you can go realy wrong ignore all the screws that you can see open the slide of the phone and remove the covers that conceal the 2 screws at the top of the phone remove them now with the slide fully open you will see 2 holes at the bottom of either side of the slide look in and you will see 2 screws that hold the bottom of the screen cover remove them.now the slide section will easily be removed from the screen section you may have to operate the slide slightly to allow the flex to exit then you have easy access to the flex on the screen attachment .Rebuild in reverse taking note on how the flex is bent as its crucial to the slide operating smoothly
