Tools required for disassembly: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

First remove your battery, sim card and memory card. Then remove the six screws you can see, circled below.

LG Optimus L3 E400 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed, your phone should look like below. Two ribbon cables, circled below, need to be disconnected. Both ribbon cables have a plug and socket type connection so can be levered up, away from the circuit board. The circuit board will now be free and can be lifted away from the rest of the phone.

Again, this has a plug and socket type connection, so lever it up, away from the circuit board. LG Optimus L3 E400 disassembly stage 4 The camera has now been removed. To remove the earpiece/speaker box (the back plastic part at the top of the circuit board), first apply some heat to the ringer, indicated by the arrow, using a hot air gun or hair dryer.

Then lift the screen from the point indicated by the arrow below. Do not force the screen, just keep applying heat until it is free. LG Optimus L3 E400 disassembly stage 8 With the LCD screen removed, your phone should look like below. The power switch and volume switch are indicated below by the red arrows. You can lever these out with your screwdriver. The ribbon cable from the touch screen is indicated by the green arrow. This is stuck down with adhesive tape and should be lifted up. The home button is indicated by the white arrow. This can be simply lifted free from the front cover. LG Optimus L3 E400 disassembly stage 9 The power switch, volume switch and home button have now been removed and the ribbon cable from the touch screen is no longer stuck down.
