Ive been looking all over but have been unable to find how to take my U740 apart to replace the broken inner lcd screen with a new one. Anyone know how? Ive got the tools to do it, I just cant figure out how to get to it. Thanks.

    Thanks for the help but Im actually trying to do this myself. At work everyone calls me the phone doctor since I know how to flash phones and fix any problems they might be having with their phones so I think if Im going to keep that nickname I might as well start operating on a few of these suckers and it kind of frustrating that I can flash a phone and and unbrick one yet I cant take one apart. Oh well back to the subject. Well I found 4 screws under the battery, 2 under the little grey dots on the top corners of the back and one on under a black dot on the half of the top that does not flip open. I took them all out but Im unable to take it apart. Did I miss one somewhere or am I just not pulling hard enough as I am scared of breaking something or do I need something to pry it open or what? Thanks again for the help.

What I did is when you flip the phone open sideways you see 3 rectangles on the left hand edge. Pry off the smallest one and there is a screw under it. Then you can pry off the front faceplate.

If you take all the 7 screws off, you'll need to stick your nail in from the bottom, and slide it up. Just work with it, and you will gradually get it off. One side, then the next. I pushed a little harder than I would have liked, but it did come off. And careful, the side buttons will fall off. You'll need to put them back on when you put the phone back together. --Laurie

The replacement LCD will cost you about 45$ you could just go pay $50 to get it fixed from the store even if you do not have insurance. there are probably some little black/grey dots covering the screws/hex once you get those off you should be able to get the cover off after that its pretty easy.

    Try to carefully slide something between the "line" and pry at it just a bit to see where it may still be connected at then you at least know where you could possibly have a screw.

LCD Sanyo screen looks shattered

The inner glass plate inside the screen is broken. The glass inside of these is very thin. I think it is only a few millimeters thick at the most.

The complete screen must be replaced to fix the fault. It will probably be cheaper for you to buy a new monitor rather than replace the screen!

Flip open the phone and look for (4) rubber plugs at each corner of the inner LCD screen.

Using a very small flat-blade screwdriver, pry these rubber plugs out and you'll see the screws beneath them.

Remove the screw and you should then be able to take the flip part apart. Be sure to put the plugs and screws in a secure place so that you don't lose them.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
