You should be able to lift them off with a fingernail or push them off with one of your screwdrivers. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 2 Now remove the two torx 6 screws you have access to. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 3 Now run something thin and flat, like the edge of a screwdriver, along the join of the battery compartment, in order to lever it free. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 4 With the battery compartment removed, your phone should look like below. Now lift the antenna from the point indicated by the arrow.

Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 7 Now lift the circuit board up a little and you'll have access to two ribbon connectors. These attach just like a plug and socket so simply use your plastic tool to lever them from the circuit board. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 8 With the circuit board removed, your phone should look like below. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 9 Now open the flip and look at the top of the screen. You'll see a small recess, circled, which will allow you to lift the lens away. Apply some heat using a hot air gun or hair dryer before you do this. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 10 With the lens removed, your phone should look like below. Four more screws (circled below) need to be removed. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 11 Now run your plastic tool along the join of the front cover in order to release it. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 12 With the front cover removed your phone should look like below. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 13 Circled below is a close up of the ribbon cable which is attached to the outer LCD screen.

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. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 14 Below you can see the zif connector, circled, in the open position. Next, carefully lever the earpiece up (indicated by the arrow at the top of the photo below). Three more ribbon cables, indicated by the arrows at the bottom of the photo, need to be disconnected. Again, these connect like a plug and socket so simply lever each one up, away from the phone. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 15 Lift the ribbon over, as shown below. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 16 Now turn the phone over and you'll be able to remove the screen, threading the connected ribbon cable through the gap in the housing. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 17 Next you should disconnect the camera. Circled is the zif connector for the camera. Flip the brown/pink hinge over, away from the ribbon, then lever the camera unit out with your screwdriver. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 18 You can now remove the large ribbon cable and circuit board, as shown below. Sony Ericsson T707 disassembly stage 19 A pin, circled below, needs to be removed so that you can release the hinge and split the phone in two. Lever the pin up with your screwdriver.
