Hi Howardforums, I am a long time lurker and first time poster here. I got a sh7218u about 2ish months ago, I absolutly love it. Anyways I noticed recently that when I opened the phone there was a gap in the plastic where the henge is. Upon further investigation I noticed there was 2 loose screws inside of it. I was messing with it a little and I think those screws hold down the LCD or something because the bottom part of my screen, digitizer and all, came loose on me a bit. I should of quit while i was ahead and just disassembled the phone, but I kept fiddling with it and cracked my screen some. It isnt to bad, but the main questions I have is,
Is taking apart the sh7218u difficult,
and where can i get a replacment screen, if there are some (dunno if a sh07b screen or another phone would work, prob not)?
Ive done a little searching looking for parts as well as dissasembly with little luck. Ive taken apart some phones, and countless NDS and DSLights so It shouldnt be to hard.
Yea I am, I have been moving all week into a new appartment so i litterally havnt had a chance to mess with the phone. I was going to type up a guide once i started taking it apart since i couldnt find any! haha. Thanks for your response, the crack is getting worse too on the screen, very depressing haha T.T
Sorry to highjack your thread but.. Ahhdillon cant send you msgs because your private message box is full!
Id like to talk to you more directly, maybe when u send me a pm you can pass me an email or something!
lol, misunderstanding here gensitenshin, youd probably know more than i do, i was actually sending this msg to ahhdillon and hoping hed see it because hes been helping me out with questions regarding the sh7218u. Ahhdillon your pm box is full! you need to see this mg and empty it!
ok ok, sorry i never reposted here but i got it all sorted out. if you for some reason have to dissasemble the phone pm me, im going to try and write up a guide but its pretty simple. the top portion with the screen however is very hard to do. and takes alot of care otherwise you will destroy it....haha which i did, luckely it was on the parts i was replacing :P
oh and thank you so much to ahhdillon for your help in this situation!
