⚠️ Before disassembling, do not forget to turn your phone off.
Disassembly of the mobile device Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact (Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact G8441) with each step description and the required set of tools.
Step 2. Open the trays
Open the hatch hiding the trays of the SIM and Memory cards (Micro SD), and remove them.
ℹ️️ Remember the location for the SIM and Memory card (Micro SD) trays so that nothing is mixed up when reassembling.
Step 3. Open the display module
⚠️ Pay attention! Disassembly has a maximum 3rd difficulty because the process begins with the disassembly of the display module. If you have no experience or are not sure of your skills, we strongly recommend that you contact a specialized service center.
We recommend using a special heating device such as a separator machine, heat gun, or heating mat. It will simplify the process. You can use a home hairdryer, but you will have to make a nozzle by hand or have a suitable one in the kit to gently heat and concentrate the heat flow in the right place.
ℹ️️ The surface of the display module must be heated to soften the adhesive underneath. The approximate heating temperature is 50° C / 125° F.
Use a thin plastic film or pick for separation. To facilitate the process, you can use isopropyl alcohol. It is often most difficult to pass the tool between the parts to be divided. Choose the far edge from the FFC cables or buttons.
Do not use a lever or any force for separation that could damage the elements inside.
The process can be seen in our video entirely so as well as in detail, at the end of the instructions.
⚠️ It is important not to get a film between the touchscreen/glass and the display module, this will damage the module.
⚠️ Look in advance at the picture of the places where the touchscreen and display cables pass under the display module to avoid accidental damage.
Step 5. Disconnect the connector
Disconnect the connector and remove the display module with an earpiece speaker.
Step 7. Unscrew the screws
Using a screwdriver (Phillips 1.5 mm PH000), unscrew the 9 black screws.
ℹ️️ Be sure to note the location of the screws before disassembling. When assembling the device, screwing the screw in the wrong place may damage the device or its part. To avoid damage, the removed screws and individual pieces (as gaskets or brackets) must be laid out in the appropriate order, or the screws and their holes in the phone must be marked with colored markers.
Step 9. Disconnect the battery connector
Disconnect the battery connector as soon as possible.
ℹ️️ The Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact model has a battery LIP1648ERPC with 2700 mAh capacity (aka rechargeable battery).
⚠️ It is highly recommended to disconnect the connector to avoid possible short circuits during disassembly.
Also, try not to use a metal tool to disconnect the rechargeable battery connector or do it carefully.
Step 15. Disconnect the connectors
Pry up the connectors of the power and volume buttons cable, headphone jack socket, charging port.
Step 16. Remove the PCB
Carefully remove the printed circuit board. There is no need to use a lever or try to reach the board by force. Make sure that nothing is getting in the way or holding the board.
⚠️ Do not bend the circuit board when removing it or push tools under it. Unbeknownst to yourself, you can damage components or cables from the inside.
