OK I know the techies will be appalled at this question but does anyone know how to disassemble a Sanyo M1? I bought one from Trade Me, works great, but under the LCD screen is some small pieces of dust or dirt which are annoying and I want to get rid of them. I can open up the main part of the phone (I have a mobile hone toolkit with the special tools in it) but I'm not too certain on how to open up the flip part of the phone with the screen in it. Any tips, tricks or general advice? Cheers

Hey

 

Ive never seen that model before but;

 

Sometimes (for example the Motorola v3x) - You need to remove the plastic casing (that protects the LCD) before you can get to the LCD, once that is off, there is a few more screws then your basically done.

Thanks Pradip, you sent me in the right direction. After gently pulling a few pieces of plastic off I found 4 tri-wing screws underneath. Hey presto, with some gentle cleaning and even gentler putting back together I now have a nice almost new looking LCD screen. I always wondered how dust and general crap gets into these phones anyway, they look airtight from the outside. Thanks for your help :)
