The end has come for me to change mobile phone. But, as always, faithful to the line… faithful to Europe, faithful to Nokia.
I replaced my old E51 hoping to find something new and better from every point of view. Actually the best viewpoints there are, but not as many as I expected. Despite the speed, key quality and materials, the new symbian sometimes think I would return back to dear old Nokia 6230 I stole three years ago…
But that's another story…
Let's move on now to the Guide on how to disassemble the newcomer Nokia E52.
1. Removing front cover
First you must remove the two cross-head screws are accessible after removing the battery
|ATTENTION: to remove the cover after removing all the joints need to enlarge gently the sides of the frame around the keyboard.|
In the gallery below you can see the entire procedure that I followed. In the last picture are visible all the joints of the frame of the cover.
(Alternatively, You can remove cover and keyboard simultaneously… you see after)
2. Keyboard removal
Using a flat-tip screwdriver you will need to insert into the small inlet (always visible from the back of the phone) to remove the keyboard. (Actually there are two catches but, Once you have removed the first, remove the other will be much easier)
The keyboard, at the bottom of the phone, It is also holding firm to a simple sticker.
3. Removing the Display Bezel with Flat keypad and Speakerphone
Now serves the torx screwdriver for the four screws.
Helping you with the pick or screwdriver remove the plastic frame joint.
|Careful not to pull too hard or you risk breaking the ribbon cable….|
At this point we need to disconnect the cables from their connectors. Just gently pull, before that of the display, then the keyboard.
Same thing goes for the third connector (the board of the slot for the SIM card and Memory Card)
At this point can be removed the motherboard from the back cover.
Here's what it looks like.
The Display is glued to the card, you have to pull a little’ and pry sides to remove it.
The Microphone I circled, is what is used for noise reduction. Here Nokia I believe has made a big mistake to place it so close to the main…. That's why noise reduction isn't as efficient as it should, Indeed, sometimes affects call quality.
5. Back Cover, Speaker and Sim slots
At the top we see the speaker, the power button (at the Center), and an antenna bianca (Maybe the bluetooth).
In the lower part, Instead, There is the card with the Sim slots, Micro SDHC, and the battery for the clock. (in the photo has already been removed)
Here's all the parts to the complete. :-)
