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 eleven screws you can see, circled below. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 1 Now run something thin and flat, like the edge of a credit card, all the way around the join of the battery compartment in order to release it from the rest of the phone. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed, your phone should look like below. A number of ribbon cables, circled below, need to be disconnected. Each of these ribbon cables has a plug and socket type connection so can be levered up, away from the circuit board. The connectors circled in purple are slightly different to those circled in red, but the basic "plug and socket" idea is the same. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 3 With the ribbon cables disconnected in the previous stage, your phone should look like below. Next disconnect the two ribbon cables circled below. Again, each has a plug and socket type connection, so lever them up, away from the circuit board. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 4 You can now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone, but when doing so make sure the power switch, indicated by the arrow below, comes away with the circuit board. It may be stuck down lightly with adhesive tape, so carefully lift it away. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 5 With the circuit board removed, your phone will look like below. The volume rocker switch will also be loose and can be simply lifted free. Now peel back the ribbon cable indicated by the arrow below. It's held down lightly with adhesive tape. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 6 Now run something thin and flat, like the edge of an old credit card, around the join of the front cover in order to remove it.  LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 7 The front cover/touch screen and LCD screen are now free from the frame. The camera, indicated top left, earpiece/jack socket/proximity sensor/volume switch, indicated top right and the ribbon cable for the keypad and micro USB socket, indicated bottom left, are held in place lightly with adhesive tape and can be carefully peeled away from the frame if required. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 8 The camera, earpiece/jack socket/proximity sensor/volume switch and the ribbon cable for the keypad and micro USB socket have now been removed. LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 9 To separate the LCD screen and touch screen, first use a hot air gun or hair dryer to heat the screen around its edge for around 30 seconds. This will soften the adhesive tape which holds the LCD screen in place and allow you to pull the screen away (carefully pull the ribbon cable towards you). LG Optimus L5 E610 disassembly stage 10 The LCD screen and touch screen have now been separated. The home button will also be loose. Disassembly is now complete. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly. If you've found this disassembly guide useful, please support formymobile.co.uk and order the tools and parts you need from our site. We ship worldwide!
