The first set I had to order arrived just fine (goes through customs, since this is a Canadian company) and fit perfectly. I order two sets at a time since this seems to be a recurrent issue with this phone, and to make it worth the $5.00 shipping charge (which is pretty reasonable).

Re: Rubber Parts needed
Actually you can buy the lil rubber stoppers on ebay but there kind of a rip off i think like 5 bucks for 3 or 4 of those lil things. the phone looks alot nicer with them tho so it might be somethign you want to invest in. i can probably send you some in an envelope, what color is it black or gray? you can plop them back in and but a lil crazy glue on the end to keep it in there

To disassemble your phone, please follow the steps below.
Turn your phone over so the battery
cover is facing you. Remove the battery cover and
battery. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers (circled below) and unscrew
Remove the 6 screws (circled below)
Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws
above the main screen (circled below)
Prise the back part away from the rest
of the phone by running your fingernail between where the two parts meet
(as shown below)
Your phone should now look like the
picture below. Unclip the ribbon (circled below)
After removing the ribbon cable (above),
carefully lift the metal part indicated by the arrow above. Another ribbon will be
attached which should be carefully removed. Take the circuit board & keypad out and
you'll be left with what's below. Next remove the top part of the phone
by pushing the housing in whilst pulling the hinge, which the top part
is attached via, away from the phone. This is the hardest part and
you'll need to bend and manipulate the housing the get the hinge out. Be
firm but be careful so you don't snap the housing.
Your phone will now be in two parts. To
open the top half of the phone and get to the screen, run your
fingernail fingernail between where the two parts of the housing meet
(as shown below)
Your phone should now be as pictured
below. The circled areas indicate where you'll need to remove the
speaker and ringer in order to solder them to the new screen. The screen
can be lifted away from the phone easily at this point.
Remove the LCD and replace with new. Reverse the procedure for
disassembly and it's finished.
Take care and good luck
Take note, the pictures are that of lg u8120, it has the same disassemble process as lg u8180
<span>opened torx screws as above, found connector after separation of bezel, careful not to lose screws or rubber plugs (reglue with rubber cement) or the keys (which have a direction to them)...connector for camera is easy (goes to camera, duh!) ...other (white) one is for screen(s) ...pushed it in, screens back ...had to open it again 'cuz it came loose again ...cleaned with RadioShack Control/Contact Cleaner & Lubricant #64-4315 ...pushed it back in very well until I felt it "seated" ...all is fine now...lost 1 of the rubber bumpers ...bought on ebay or from cnn.cn ...all this is for RazrV3 fone... look here for guides: http://incipiotech.com/moto/motorola_v3_housing_guide.PDF and also here: http://www.cellexcompany.com/install/v3_install.pdf ...I had torx drivers and open tool ...cannot be done without torx driver ...can use edge of credit card instead of open tool ...overall VERY EASY to do for even silly me who dropped fone on bathroom floor!!<br />So Thanks</span>
open up the back of your v3.take out the battery.. then remove the 4 little rubber screw plugs on the 4 corners of the screen side of the flip/there are 4 little star type screws in there.remove them remembering what hole each screw came out of.some v3s have different size screws in the holes.then you'll see the flat ribbon cable going from the camera to the pc board of the screen.remove it and gently work the camera out of its holder..be careful.use a flat type screw screw driver to work it out.
hi, the only way you qwill get a replacement is if you go to a small phone shop that sells and repairs phones and then they might have some spares off phones they have taken apart for spares, but as for buying a new piece you just would never find one to be able to buy a new one.
So your best bet would be try a small phone shop and see if they have got any spare parts for your phone as they sometimes keep all the good parts off the phones that they have had come in that are beyond repair, but failing that it would be near impossible to find somewhere that could get you the parts cheap enough to make it financially worth it.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
If you can, perform a master reset on the phone. If the keypad restarts before you are able to get through enough menu's to do that, the phone will need to be replaced. If it's still under warranty (1year usually) this is considered a warranty covered replacement unless it's gotten wet or has any cracked plastic parts.
