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

My n73 back camera not working in new body


this is normally a flex/ribbon problem. theese nokias suffer from this. it will require dismantling the handset. it may just be a loose connection or it may need a new ribbon. good news is they are not expensive to buy.

Buttons on the slide of j700 donot work while opening slide


hello,
the problem seem to be from the flex that connects the keypad to the screen. it is repairable, first you flash the phone to see if it would work then if it doesnt then you replace the slide of the phone then it would work perfectly. the process is complicated so i'll advice you take it to an expert and if you insist on fixing it yourself.

then you'll have to get a complete set of screw driver, and a replacement flex, then you'll carefully unscrew the phone, then you locate the flex after carefully dismantling both sides of the phone then you replace the flex and recouple it back carefully. the try to turn it on and test the keys.
