Sony Ericsson K700i disassembly

If you require a new screen, phone cover and screwdrivers, they can be purchased here: http://www.formymobile.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=k700ilcd


Tools required: plastic shim such as a bic pen lid, small flat head screwdriver (or something which can be used as a lever) and T6 screwdriver
  • Remove the battery cover, battery and sim card. Use something like a pen lid to push to clips (circled) out of the chassis to allow removal of the front cover.

  • Below is how the phone will look once you have removed the front cover. Now unscrew the 4 screws, circled below.

  • Next, remove metal assembly which surrounds the screen. To do so, lever the assembly away from the chassis with something like a flat head screwdriver.

  • Your phone should now look like the image below. The screen attaches to the circuit board via a ribbon (circled). To remove the screen, slowly and carefully pull the ribbon away from the phone. As you pull the ribbon away, note how it attaches to the circuit board. This is important as it'll help you re-attach the new screen's ribbon

  • If you are replacing the housing, note the image below. We have gone back a few stages here to remove the aerial cover at the top back of the phone (it's not necessary to remove this part if you are changing the screen only). Again, this is held in place by clips, circled below. Push the clips out and you can remove the aerial cover.
  • Reverse the procedure for disassembly and it's finished.
