Disassemble Nokia 1100

When disassemble any phone, great care should be taken to ensure that no damage is caused to any of the parts. Rough handling may result in severe damage of many parts, and if proper anti-static procedures are not followed, electrostatic damage may result in any electronic component.

Before commencing, it is recommended that the correct tools are purchased for the job in hand - at the very least, you will require a Torx T6 screwdriver.

Step 1. Protect display with a film to prevent damage.

Step 2. Press the release button (1) and remove the battery cover in the direction indicated by (2).

Step 3. Remove fascia, starting at the bottom.

Step 4. Remove keymat from fascia.

Step 5. Using a Torx T6, remove the six screws in the order indicated below.

Step 6. With the six Torx screws removed, you can simply lift out the c-cover.

Step 7. Unlock the LCD clips on both sides of the display.

Step 8. You can now remove the LCD screen and light-guide.

Step 9. Use tweezers or similar to remove the speaker.

Step 10. The main circuit board can be simply lifted away from the chassis of the phone.

Step 11. The shielding can be simply levered out by starting at the top of the handset.

Step 12. The main system connector can be tight (but usually isn't), so you may need a thin plastic shim to remove it.

Step 13. To remove the microphone from the system connector, simply push it out of it's housing.

Step 14. The vibra-motor can be simply lifted out of the chassis.

Step 15. Remove the buzzer unit taking extra care not to damage the sprung contacts.

Step 17. And that should be your phone disassembled. Reassembly is a simple reversal of the above steps taking care to fully test the handset to ensure that you have not caused any damage or missed any steps.
