    Taking Apart the T809

    Of course do this at your own risk
    -Turn off your phone & take battery, SIM, TFlash, side covers off
    -With the battery out of place locate the 3 screws. Top side screw is for the bracket which holds down the side up and down cover.

    -There are several clips that hold the bottom cover. What I used was a small flathead and went along the line. Do this soft or you can damage the clips.

    -When you get the bottom panel exposed. Locate the screws(look at picture, it is in orange). Unscrew them.
    -There is some more clips holding the bottom panel. Again I used a flathead and pushed against the frame. Play with it until you can get the panel out.

    -I flipped the panel and it should expose the keypad cover. Take it out of the way

    -Slide the phone upward until the bottom screws for the face is visible. Unscrew that.
    -Slide the phone all the way out and get the 4 screws on the backside off. Top screws you have to pulled those covers off.

    -Face plate came off by pulling it down gently. There are clips holding it as well.
    -Get the cover for the LCD's keys.
    -From there you should be able to clean and air out the dust. I used 150PSI air.

    -I circled in where I think the dust is coming in from.
    -Be careful when sealing back up with the camera's ribbon cable. Make sure you loop it.

    -I put RTV silicone where I thought the dust was coming from. Hopefully this will solve the dust problem. I will let you guys know the outcome in weeks to come.

    There you go. I was pretty nervous but outcome was worth it for me.
    Good Luck!!!

    I was hoping there would be another way also but there isn't. It's easy if you have the proper tools and very handy. I was terrified it wouldn't work afterwards but when I saw the light come on....sigh of relief. If you do try and get stuck shoot me a PM.

    Yup, these are exactly the processes. I was planning on putting it up on my website, but my tech friend said don't do it (I guess he's told people how to disassemble their iPods and PDAs and when they break them they scream at him).

    It is TOO complicated, but if people have dust in the future I know a guy who will clean the device (insured) for around $15 plus shipping.

    Awesome pictures!

    It's basically the same as the D415's instructions to replace the faceplate posted on DayDeal.com.

    Samsung D415 D418 D410 Faceplate Installation Instructions

    It takes a lot of patience to do it and not mess up. I've taken apart my S307, X427, E715, D415, someone else's E105 and taken the faceplate off of my V206 so I know how nervous it can make you if you've never taken anything like this apart.
    If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.

    I already got a PHD (Plain High School Diploma) so ignore my style of writing and I'll ignore your ignorance.

    When asked if I see the glass half empty or half full, I responded I see just a glass of water.

    It was worth the time and effort. I wished someone would have did it first besides myself. Then I would know what to look for. But it's okay also, it was a boring day at work anyhow. I hope the info here is clear enough to follow and understand. Thanks guys.

    i do not believe it is right to buy a phone that is $250+ that requires you taking it apart (voiding the warrenty) to solve a problem that should never have come aobut

    Tell that to all the Motorola SEEM Editors as they void their phones doing that as well and they don't care. Yes the manufacturer should have tested and found this flaw in the design, but not everything can be found out until it actually goes to the consumer and into real world use.

    Sounds like Microsoft and their half-baked OS realeases and their Service Packs follow-ups.

    By checking this site for starters?

    Nice pictures BTW. Can't see myself being brave enough to open up any phone but considering my current one has now been reduced to paperweight status , perhaps I'll give it a whirl one day.
