LG U880 disassembly

If you require a new screen, phone cover and screwdrivers, they can be purchased here: http://www.formymobile.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=u880lcd

Tools required: Phillips size 0 screwdriver
  • Turn your phone over so the back is facing you. Remove the battery. Now remove the 4 screws (circled below)

  • Remove the 2 screws (circled below). These screws may be covered by some plastic covers. These simply peel off.

  • Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen (circled below)

  • Now remove the two screws below the main screen (circled below)

  • Run a fingernail along the join of the housing to unclip it

  • The top of the phone should now be in two pieces, as below

  • Unclip the ribbon circled below. This attaches like a plug and socket

  • Now detach the top of the phone from the bottom. This involves a little force as it is a tight fit

  • Double back the ribbon on itself so it is away from the LCD screen

  • Use the screwdriver to lever the old screen out

  • Replace the old screen with new and reverse the whole procedure for reassembly
