If you've been having problems with your Samsung G600 Slide phone, it may be a good idea to open the unit in order to try to diagnose the problem. You don't have to be a tech whizz to perform this disassembly procedure because these phones are designed to be taken apart in a limited amount of time. Even if you've never disassembled a cell phone before, you'll find that doing so on your Slide is pretty straightforward.
Things you need
Small Phillips screwdriver
Turn off your Slide, turn the unit over and slide the back battery cover off of the unit. Remove the battery from the unit.
Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the six screws on the corners and sides of the back of the unit.
Use your fingers to remove the back housing from the unit and set the housing aside. The circuit board will now be visible in the front housing.
Unplug the ribbon cable from its port on the left side of the circuit board.
Lift the circuit board up and unplug the remaining ribbon cable on the underside of the board. Set the board aside.
Remove the grey panel from the bottom half of the phone housing and set it aside.
Remove the four screws from the middle of the phone housing. These hold the top part of the slider mechanism to the phone. Lift the top part of the slider out of the housing and set it aside.
