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

First remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Next remove the nine screws you can see, circled below. The screw circled in white is different to the others, so make sure it goes back in the right place. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 1 Now pull the bottom cover towards you, in the direction shown by the arrows. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 2 With the bottom cover removed, your phone should look like below. Now remove the screw, circled below. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 3 Now run something, like the edge of a credit card, around the join of the battery compartment in order to remove this part. Avoid the buttons and ports as you move your tool around the cover. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 4 With the battery compartment removed, your phone should look like below. On the left and top of the phone are the volume switches and power switches, indicated by the arrows. These are permanently connected to the circuit board but are stuck to the side of the housing with double sided tape. Carefully peel them away from the side of the housing, leaving them connected to the circuit board. Also circled below are a number of ribbon cables. Each of these attaches like a plug and socket, so just lever each one up, away from the circuit board, to unplug. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 5 Below you can see the coaxial cable, now loose, and the disconnected ribbon cables. The memory card reader/SIM reader, indicated by the arrow below, now needs to be removed. To do so, apply some heat using a hot air gun or hair dryer for around 60 seconds to soften the adhesive tape holding this part in place. Then slide your plastic tool under the part and it will come free. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 6 With the memory card reader/SIM reader removed, your phone should look like below. You now have access to two more ribbon cables. Again, these attach like a plug and socket, so just lever each one up, away from the circuit board, to unplug. You can now lift the circuit board free.  LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 7 Your phone should now look like below. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 8 Now run your plastic tool around the join of the front cover in order to separate it from the phone's chassis. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 9 The chassis and front cover are shown separated in the image below. If you wish to remove the two cameras, simply lever from the point indicated by the arrow. The headphone jack socket can be removed by disconnecting the circled ribbon. Again, this attaches like a plug and socket, so lever up to unplug. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 10 The cameras and headphone jack socket have now been removed. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 11 The earpiece, front facing camera and long ribbon cable can be carefully peeled away from the chassis and are shown below, having been removed. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 12 Below you can see the back of the LCD screen. To remove the LCD screen, first apply some heat using a hot air gun or hair dryer then carefully lift from the points indicated by the arrows. If the screen is well held, apply more heat and try not to force the screen. LG Optimus 3D P920 disassembly stage 13 With the LCD screen removed, your phone should look like below.
