Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I need info on the steps to removing (and replacing) the LCD screen on my LG VX8800. I just purchased a replacement LCD screen. There is a little slot at the top of the screen into which the tool fits appears to get under the screen. However, before I just pry it off and potentially do damage, I wanted to know if this was the correct approach to removing the LCD screen or must I first remove screws from the back, or the metal edge or something else? Any info you can share would be appreciated. Lynn

    Because this is a slider phone, the guts of the phone are not immediately accessible. I can not the the last 10% of the shell (casing) around the LCD screen to come loose from the phone and don't want to force it and risk snapping it.

I need the steps to replace the lcd screen.


Many cell phone users wrongly sell, or give away their cell phones when the LCD screen cracks, breaks or goes bad. Removing and replacing the LCD screen yourself is much cheaper than buying a new phone. Most cell phone parts or components can be purchased online at cell phone repair website such as CellularDr.com or Cellphonesshop.net. Replacing the LCD screen yourself, however, may void your warranty agreement.


Switch off phone,
Get a screw driver and unscrew the top where the screen is located,
(screw is located when flip is open).
Carefully remove screen from hook(when it is Pinned too),
Fix the replacement screen and screw back necessary screws on the phone.

And your Dawn.

Good luck.

Lg kp500 touchscreen not responding


Hi,the fault of the phone is from the outer LCD screen,its bad and the only solution is to replace the LCD screen,

You can carefully follow the steps provided in the solution below to assist you in disassembling your LG cookie;

STEP 1.
Remove your back cover, battery, sim, memory card and stylus. Four screws need to be removed,which are at the edge of the battery slot.

STEP 2.
Run something like a credit card around the join of the back cover to release it from the rest of the phone.

STEP 3.
With the back cover removed,you will see five ribbon connectors,they need to be disconnected. Each one attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever them up to unplug.

STEP 4.
With the ribbons disconnected you should be able to pull the circuit board away. Another connector needs to be detached in the same way as the others.


STEP 5.
Remove the two screws which hold the antenna in place. The camera at the edge, is stuck down with double sided tape and will come away with a little force. The antenna will also come away with a little force.

STEP 6.

Run your plastic tool or redit card around the join of the front cover and lever it off.

STEP 7.

Lever the LCD screen out with your plastic tool. It should come away easily.

STEP 8.
You should now have the small LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.


The LCD screeen costs 45.00 USD.


Good luck,and take care

Shatterd phone screen!!!!


Hi,i think the inner touch pad of the LCD screen is bad and it needs to be replaced,here is a detailed guide to help you disassemble your LG arena;
Tools required: Phillips screwdriver, mobile phone opening tool, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card, double sided tape.
STEP 1 Remove your back cover, battery, sim, memory card etc. Remove the four circled screws.
STEP 2 Run your mobile phone opening tool around the join of the front and back of the phone. Start at the top and then pull the phone apart when you can get enough of a grip.
STEP 3 A ribbon connector (circled) needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this up to unplug. Next, peel the blue sticker off.
STEP 4 The circled ribbon connector needs to be disconnected. Just flick the black latch up and pull the orange ribbon away from the circuit board.
STEP 5 Pull the circuit board towards you. A little force is required but be careful as a cable is still connected to the board and you don't want to damage it.
STEP 6 on the left is a connector that disconnected when you pulled the circuit board towards you. Remove the screw, in the upper right corner. Disconnect the two ribbons beside the camera. Each attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever each one up to unplug. Lever up the white wire above the battery slot . Remove the blue sticky tape above the white wire.
STEP 7 Lift away the part above the camera. The ribbon connector needs to be disconnected. Just flick the black latch up and pull the orange ribbon away from the circuit board.
STEP 8 Pull the circuit board away from the phone. Note that the connectors,disconnect when you remove the circuit board. Lever up the wire at the base of the phone. Remove the 2 screws at the edges of the base . Peel back the silver sticker
STEP 9 Use your mobile phone opening tool to lever up the metal part bounding the screen . It's stuck down with double sided tape so using a hairdryer to heat the part may make it easier to remove
STEP 10 Slide something like the edge of a credit card or guitar plectrum under the right edge of the touch screen. Again, this part is held down with double sided tape which may be easier to remove if you heat it up a little first. You should replace the double sided tape when you put the phone back together.
STEP 11 Lift the touch screen from right to left.
STEP 12 Lever the two long stoppers out and then use the recesses as levering points to lift the screen out.
STEP 13 You should now have the LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
The screen costs only 39USD.
Thanks and take care

Lens scratched on lg shine , how do i replace


Visit this web page for a picture guide to repair your screen. http://tiny.cc/YaTay

Directions to repair the screen on an LG Shine:

Step 1. Take off back cover and remove battery and SIM card.
.
Step 2. Remove the six screws holding on the back cover.
.
Step 3. Get a thin piece of metal and pry off back piece of the main phone unit.
.
Step 4. Once you get the back piece off you can see a green unit at the top of phone. This is the camera, all you do is pull on it and it should un-clip.
.
Step 5. Once the camera is removed you can see 4 more screws, unscrew these.
.
Step 6. Now that the screws are out you can pull off the main board. The first thing you need to do is un-clip the black ribbon that is at the top. Then you have to un-clip the clip on all four corners, after you do this the main board will come out.
.
Step 7. Now That you have that off there are 2 screws on the back that you must unscrew.
.
Step 8. With the screws gone you can now pull the slider away from the piece that has the number pad on it.
.
Step 9. On the back of the slider there are 6 screw you must unscrew. The Two screws at the top have small black circles glued on-top of them. Just wedge something under the black peices and they will come off.
.
Step 10. Now that the screws are out you can pry off the plastic LCD screen cover from the metal slider piece.
.
Step 11. After the LCD screen cover is gone you must unscrew 2 screws to the left and right of the joystick. After you remove the screws the joystick cover comes off.
.
Step 12. Now that you have the cover off you need to turn the plate where the joystick is on over and pull out of the LCD screen clip.

Step 13. After you do this you can now put in the replacement and put the phone back together.

If this information was helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rate my answer. Thank you.

My screen is broken on my phone


Hello,

Your phone needs to be sent for repair or if you want you may purchase LCD screen and replace it by yourself.
You may check this link to buy LCD screen:

http://www.bizrate.com/electronics-under-60/sony-ericsson-w810-w810i-lcd-replacement-screen-us/

here are the steps to replace the LCD screen.

1.Remove the aluminium-panel on the backside of the display-slider (when slider is opened and you look at the mobile from backside)! This part is fixed with adhesive and so you can remove it carefully.

2.lift an edge of it with a thin slotted screwdriver (for instance)
3.insert something like a credit card in this lifted edge an remove the whole panel with it.
4.you'll see two little screws you also have to remove before you can take off the front-cover of your mobile. Now there is only one screw left to remove. It's on the front-side beneath the display.

5.When you're done removing all this screws, you have to be very careful. The old display can be removed by disconnecting it's flex-cable from the circuit board (this little board you just removed the mounting screw from, the cable-connector is on the backside of it).

6.Insert the new display, connect it to the circuit board an do all steps in reverse to assemble it again.

Thanks.

LG shine broken lcd screen

I have seen lots of LCD Screens cracked or broken on an LG Shine. A replacement screen can be bought for around $20 from Ebay. And the process of replacing it yourself if rather simple. All you need are a small philips screwdriver and a plastic tab (guitar pick) or a fingernail.

Here are two links that will help you out. The first is a guide that will show you step by step how it's done. And the second is a good link for buying replacement LCD Screens to replace your broken one.
