How to open or dismantle Sony Ericsson W700i casing

It looks easy but it requires the right tool and a little of trick to open the Sony Ericsson W700i phone casing. So let's do it!

Tools you need:

1. Torque Screwdriver: T3 size
2. Flat/Philips head screwdriver: 1.5mm size

Get this special screwdriver set only for $5, good for small electronic device repairing. It consist of Torque (T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T10, T15, T20), Pozidrive (PZ0, PZ1), Philips (1.5, 2.0), Flat (1.0, 1.5, 2.0), TP2.3, M2.6, Y

Step 1: Open the battery cover and use Flat/Philips head 1.5mm screwdriver to remove the back casing screws. Then use the Torque screwdriver (T3 size) to open the front casing screws.

Step 2: This part require a little trick. Insert your thumb nail in between the gap of the back casing and the body. While doing that go around it 360 degree to lift off the casing clip-lock, make sure you have hard nails to do it. Or alternatively you can use sharp edge object like flat head screwdriver. To open the front casings do the same step.

Step 3: Now everything should be open up like this.

How to remove the outer screen protector: Some people may not realize that the outer screen is removable as it looks like it is one unit with the casing frame. Actually it is attach by glue or thin layer of double tape adhesive. Just push it from down under to get the screen protector out.

If the camera is not functioning, there is high possibility that the camera shutter is spoiled/faulty or broken. If this is the case then very difficult to fix it because there are no replacement parts, unless someone willing to sell the part from their faulty Sony Ericsson W700i.
