Nokia 2300 & Variants
When dismantling 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 the screen using a film or similar.
Step 2. Press the release button (1) and remove the back cover in the direction shown by (2).
Step 3. Remove the front fascia starting from the base of the handset.
Step 4. Remove the keymat by simply unclipping it.
Step 5. Remove the six Torx T6 screws in the order shown above.
Step 6. With the screws removed you can lift the screen and keyboard assembly away from the chassis.
Step 7. To remove the light guide, unclip the snaps at the bottom.
Step 8. Next, unclip the snaps next to the screen.
Step 9. Use tweezers to remove the speaker.
Step 10. To remove the main circuit board, simply lift it out of the chassis.
Step 11. The shielding usually just lifts out of the chassis, but may require some leverage to be supplied.
Step 12. The base connector usually requires little force to be lifted out of the chassis.
Step 13. The microphone is usually a tight fit, but can be removed by pushing it out of its housing using your Torx screwdriver.
Step 14. Tweezers can again be used to remove the vibra motor.
Step 15. Reassembly is a simple reversal of the above steps taking extra time to ensure that everything works as it should, and that you have caused no damage whilst inside the handset.
