Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 2 Lift the battery compartment from the bottom and then lift it over the corner indicated by the arrow. A little force is required. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 3 With the battery compartment removed, your phone should look like below. A ribbon connector, circled below, needs to be disconnected. This attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug. On the left and right side of the phone are the power and volume switches. 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. The mic, indicated by the arrow at the bottom of the phone, is attached in the same way and also needs to be lifted away from the housing. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 4 With the ribbon disconnected and the power, volume button and mic lifted away from the housing, your phone should look like below. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 5 Lift the circuit board from right to left and you'll see it's still attached to the phone by another ribbon, circled in the photo below. Again, this attaches like a plug and socket and can be levered away from the circuit board. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 6 The circuit board should now be free, as shown below. The ribbon connectors for the camera and jack socket are circled below. Again, these attach like a plug and socket and can be levered away from the circuit board.  Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 7 Below you can see the camera and jack socket once they have been removed. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 8 The next stage is to disconnect the ribbon which comes from the touch screen/digitizer. See the next stage for details. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 9 Circled below is a close up of the ribbon cable which is attached to the touch screen/digitizer. This ribbon connects in a different way to the last few and is called a zif connector. The black part is a latch that opens and closes on a hinge. Carefully lift it up, towards the ribbon and the ribbon will be free. Refer to the next stage to see the latch in the open position. The auto rotate sensor and earpiece are indicated by the arrow. Lever this from the point shown to remove it. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 10 Below you can see the connector in the open position and the ribbon is now free. The auto rotate sensor and earpiece have now also been removed.

Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 12 To remove the touch screen you first need to heat all the way around the edge of the screen with a hot air gun or hair dryer. Do this for about 60 seconds and the adhesive holding the screen in place will loosen. Next, run something like the edge of a credit card around the very edge (the black part) of the screen. Carefully go all the way around the edge of the screen until it is released. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disassembly stage 13 With the touch screen/digitizer removed, your phone should look like below.
