MyTouch 3G Slide Written Screen Repair Guide:

  • The first step to disassembling the MyTouch 3G slide is to remove the antenna cover. This can easily be achieved by popping it off to the side as shown in the illustration above.
  • Using a small Phillips screwdriver you then proceed with removing the six screws that hold the housing in place. Two screws each on both sides (top and bottom) of the phone and two near the battery as shown in the illustration. Once these screws are removed you should be able to remove the battery and the SIM card fairly easily.
  • The next step is to take the housing / casing off so that you can get to the board. You have already achieved 50% of this by taking off the six screws so you just need to use a safe pry tool to pry the top off slightly so that it gets unhinged. Pry open one end and then slowly lift the entire housing off.
  • At this point there are two more hidden screws you will have to deal with. These screws are easily revealed by pulling the two connectors on both sides of the phone. These two screws hold the board in place.

  • Now in order to safely remove the board you will have to carefully remove the 4 connector ribbon attached to the board as shown in the illustration. In order to release the ribbon you will have to left the black holder upwards prior to pulling the ribbon out, this can easily be achieved by using the safe pry tool that we include with your replacement part.

  • There are eight screws used to hold the housing to the slide mechanism. These screws are easily removed using a Philips screwdriver. However once they are removed the sliver tape will need to be pulled off before the slide can be completely disassembled.

  • In order to remove the LCD screen housing the four screws holding the housing in place will need to be removed. The screws can easily be revealed by removing the tape like covering slightly by lifting it off on the sides as shown in the illustration. There should be two screws on the top and two at the bottom.
  • To remove the glass touch screen digitizer from the frame use a pry tool and gently pry off.

In order to reassemble the phone just reverse the instructions i.e. go from the bottom to the top.
