Hi all,

Thank you very much for this usefull photo guide.

I succesfully disassembled my i8000 to replace a broken LCD and, most important, reassembled everything back!

The problem is that I now have a really poor quality of the image. colours are faded and several and an horizontal pattern light-dark makes me unhappy.

New display is original Samsung, and was produced the same day of the original one (!)

Do anyone know if there is a specific tool to fix what seems a calibration problem?

I tried lcdtest.exe found under windows but there are no option to modify settings.

Thanks in advance for any help will come!

I'd also like to know if there is an easier way to remove the faceplate / cover for dust removal. My screen is fine e I'd hate to not be able to re-assemble this puppy :D .

My I8000 has dust under the screen. Is there a better way to remove this without disassemble all the phone?

No, You must disassembly the entire phone. Few minutes ago I ended cleaning screen. I put soft glue in the slit so no more dust, no more disassembling.

Hello guys, i am new to this site, found out about it through Google when i searched for Samsung Omnia 2 disassembly. Had to register to see the images.

This post is really great, because i desperately want to disassemble mine in order to get rid of the dust under my screen. Getting quite annoying recently, since it is gathered in the bottom corners refracting the light and making the images blurry.

English subtitles would be nice indeed, but the images tell a lot already. Thanks for the post!

Mine doesnt have the gps antenna... (i8000L)

Maybe this is the reason for the slow gps lock...

And yours?

I've just managed to clean the dust under my display with this tutorial, thanks! It is a little bit more complicated than it looks, there is some sticky tape under the main board and it gives you an impression like it's just about to crash. Tricky part is the cleaning itself too, to remove all the dust and not to leave some small hairs or leftovers of the cloth.

Anyway, following the pictures from the first post seems to be a better idea than using "disassembly/assembly" part of service manual. I was trying to use it before but I just got stuck at some step and wasn't able to continue.
