Tools required for disassembly: Phillips screwdriver

Before starting, note that the HTC Touch Diamond has quite a lot of screws holding it together which vary in length, so it would be a good idea to make a diagram or write down which screws go where. First remove the battery cover, battery, sim, and stylus. Remove any screws which are accessible. You will probably be able to see other screws but not access them at this point. HTC Touch Diamond disassembly stage 1 Remove the charger port/sim slot cover and any more screws you subsequently have access to. Two ribbon cables need disconnecting (circled). One has a piece of white tape covering it which needs to be removed. Then flick the latch up to release the ribbon. The other cable is a thin wire with a small round connector on the end. This attaches like a plug and socket and can be gently lever up with the edge of your fingernail. Now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone. HTC Touch Diamond disassembly stage 2 With the circuit board removed you'll notice that two ribbons (circled), which were attached to the other side of the circuit board, will have disconnected. They simply push in like a plug and socket. Have a look at the other side of the circuit board to familiarise yourself with how they reattach. Remove any screws you now have access to. HTC Touch Diamond disassembly stage 3 Lever off the camera surround using a plastic tool such as the edge of a credit card. Remove the thin metal plate with the barcode on. Remove any screws you now have access to. HTC Touch Diamond disassembly stage 4 Your phone should now look like below. Note that the two plastic parts shown below hold two wires in place on either side of the phone. Remove any more screws you now have access to. HTC Touch Diamond disassembly stage 5 Lever the metal plate away, as shown below. Note that this part is still connected by a cable. Remove the silver tape which covers the back of the LCD screen and a number of cables. Disconnect the circled connector (lever it off with a fingernail) HTC Touch Diamond disassembly stage 6 You can now push the keypad out and your phone should look like below. The LCD is held in place with a tacky glue and needs to be levered out. Use a hair dryer to heat the screen in order to loosen the glue holding it in place, then access the screen from the back, as per the above picture. Slide something like a credit card in between the front cover and the LCD to remove it. I didn't remove the LCD screen for this guide as this was a fully working phone and the LCD could have been damaged doing so. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
