Question about Samsung SGH-d807 Cellular Phone
I just ordered one from ebay. The ribbons tapes dries and rips bc of old age... I wonder if covering it in liquid tape would make it last longer.

I just finished disassembly and it wasn't that bad. Take off all four screws around the battery, then carefully but forcefully take the plastic casing off. Then, take the 2 screws on the main circuit board. That will reveal one connection for the ribbon cable, take that off. Under that is the backplate sliding mechanism of the phone. There will be 6 screws on this assembly, one of them under cable the connects to the keyboarb (bottom right). You will have to take off a green tape and also a gold padding to get to this final screw. After that is off, you will see the other half of the ribbon. Take that one off also, just yank it off. Install the new ribbon tape, make sure you don't rip it, and you're set. good luck. EE

Remove battery cover and battery. There are four small screws visible on the rear cover, remove those. Wiggle and distort the back cover a little at the bottom of the phone until it pull partly free from the phone, slide a guitar pick or small flat blade screwdriver between the phone and the rear cover, at the side of the phone, pry this cover off until it snaps free. You will see the main board now. Remove the two screws holding this board on, carefully fold it back towards the battery area. The main ribbon cable is visible now. Remove a green tape on the socket where the ribbon cable joins the board. pull the ribbon away from the board gently and use a screwdriver or something else to cut the adhesive between the board and the cable. The socket has a hinged brown piece closest to where the cable comes in, that flips up to release the cable. The small cable coming from the number pad is removed by gently prying up the rectangular connector from the board. Now with the board free you can remove six screws from the plastic backing plate, and remove that plate from the slider assembly (one of the screws is hidden by a piece of green tape). On the front half of the phone there are six small screws on the rear side (the camera side). Four are visible, two are hidden behind rubber plugs at the top of the phone. Separate the chrome trim from the backing plate by starting at the bottom of the phone, by the key pad, and it may be stuck from a little day-to-day dirt but separate it there, then swing the bottom end out and release the front cover from the two clips that hold the top end together. You now can separate the ribbon cable from the screen assembly in a similar way as you did with the other end of the cable. Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. Be sure to replace the pieces of tape, and the wire mesh shield attached to them, they serve to prevent radio frequency interference between parts of this device, and between this device and others.
Good luck, and happy dreams.
