    Doesn't help. The screen in the SAmsing SGH a777 is in the sliding part. I would think I need to pry off the slide but it really doesn't want to come off. With the slide on, I can only access two of the screws holding the screen. I can, of course, get to four screws in the battery compartment. ???

Hello.


Well to get a good idea of how to take a phone apart, I'd suggest that you take a look at these three take apart tutorials that I've written.

Taking apart a cell phone is very much same from model to model, brand to brand, pretty much the same basic things.


1. Remove all screws, check under soft objects, labels etc for hidden screws.
2. then casing is most likely held in place with plastic clips only.

and go from there.


I have alot of samsung service manuals but unfortunately they expect the mechanic to be able to take apart the phone without instructions, so they don't have any take apart instructions.

    I think I had the same exact problem when I was taking apart a nokia 26xx Sliding phone apart, I'll have to check how I did that and get back to you soon.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    sorry it took me so long to get back to you, I finaly found the nokia phone with the sliding screen. I remember it had 2 screws and then it was somehow difficult to remove. I'll take it apart and let you know what I did in this case.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    Okay I figured it out.

    On the top part, Remove the two srews from the top, then you see plastic clips that hold the display on place in the bottom so we can't just pull it up from there.

    You have to carefully go to the top where the two screws where and pull the screen up from the edges. it is held in place with plastic clips, unlike the once in the bottom these will release the screen and won't break.

    So stick your fingernail or a flat screw driver at the top corners of the back metal where the screws where and push up, go around the metal and push it up, eventually the display is free.

    I can record this to a video for you if needed.

How can the starter cord be repaired/replaced on a DR Trimmer/Mower with a 6.5 OHV Briggs-Stratton engine.


Replacement cord kits are available in home improvement stores. If the screen cover is pop riveted on you'll need to get replacement pop rivets and a tool to install them. Otherwise, remove the bolts holding it in place and remove the screen. Unwind the broken cord, paying attention as to the direction of the wind. Replace the cord and attach it to the one-way clutch. Don't forget to put the new cord thru the hole in the screen before attaching it to the clutch. Now wind the clutch so the spring starts to pull the cord into the clutch. Pull on the cord to see if it's operating correctly. Once you're satisfied, go ahead and reinstall the screen on the engine.

How do you get to the starter spring on a Craftsman 358.797770


If the cover where the rope winds up has pop rivets, then get a pop rivet tool and some replacement pop rivets of the correct diameter before you drill out the rivets in the cover. If the cover has bolts holding it on, then just remove the bolts to uncover the the whole mechanism.

Replacing the pull cord on a scott bonnar sx4000


Home Depot and other home improvement stores sell universal replacement pull cords for less that 4 dollars. Instructions are on the bag. Look at the screen covering the pull cord to see if it is bolted on or pop riveted. If it's pop riveted you'll have to drill out the rivets to get at the cord. Have a pop rivet tool and the proper sized rivets ready to re install the cover

Repair lawn mower pull cord


Home Depot sells a replacement pull cord kit that has great instructions. My mower, however, had pop rivets holding the cover on the engine, so if yours does too, get a pop rivet tool with the correct size pop rivets before you start drilling out the old pop rivets.

I have a CU515 LG phone. I have had it about a month now. Today I removed it from the Factory Charger. The inside screen went haywire when I turned it on. Now all I have is a blank white screen. I can make...


Richard it sounds like your LCD screen went bad. If you bought your phone from your service provider, it will be under warranty. Call them!! They will replace it.

If the phone is not under warranty, you will need to replace the LCD screen. You can find a replacement LCD on ebay, I have provided a link directly to the screens on ebay for your convenience:

Here is a good tutorial on how to replace the screen. As you read it, you will find that it is very detailed and cost effective.

Please leave us 4 thumbs up :)

I found the lcd screen on a very popular web site and it cost me 15.00 that included two small tools to help with the repair. A screwdriver and a Pry tool. And shipping was included. I figured that was worth a chance of fixing the phone. I may just have had "dumb beginner's luck" but I was able to do the repair and my phone now works like a charm. The phone itself has two small screws under the decorative plastic cover at the top of the opened flip phone. (just above the chrome piece above the LG logo. Just gently pry that loose and you will see the small screws.
At the bottom of that same area you will see 2 round dots one in each corner. Once again gently pry them up with a very small tipped tool. Mine popped off very easily. That is the four screws that hold the cover over the lcd screen. You will once again have to gently pry the cover off after the screws are removed. It sort of snaps into place to secure the cover over the lcd screen. After you pop the cover off you are ready to remove the screen. The speaker is attached via two small wires at the top of the lcd screen. I took my soldering gun and removed the two wires (my phone were red and blue wires) but that is the only soldered wires to deal with. At the bottom right hand side of the lcd was a connection, I guess one might even call it a plug. Just lift up on it a little and remove the broken screen. then slip the new screen into place. Make sure you reseat the small plug at the bottom and very gently without applying to much heat attache the speaker to the two small wires we talked about earlier at the top of the screen. Oh yeah, the screen comes shipped with protective plastic covering over both screens the plast needs to be removed prior to inserting into place as you begin working with the new screen. Anyway then all you have to do is put the cover back on, gently snap in in place, then put the four screws back in and replace the decorative covers. and you should now be back in business. It took me about 10 minutes and like I said earlier cost me 15.00. I hope this helps someone. I'm not a great writer but I did find this task very easy and extremely cost effective.

I have an LG CU515 LCD screen/disasemble


I to had that exact same problem. Somehow I had managed to crack my lcd screen. I almost pitched it out to begin with because I saw some repair places that wanted 99.00 for a replacement screen. I don't think I paid that much for the phone when it was new. Anyway I found the lcd screen on a very popular web site and it cost me 15.00 that included two small tools to help with the repair.

How do i turn on my computer?


Hi - The power button is on the left side. Locate the speaker. Then there is a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Next is your power button. You may not see it because there is a little cover over it. I believe you just have to skide this cover to get to your power button. This is an older machine so just in case you don't have a manual I've included a link for one. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to help. Thanks and have a nice day.
