⚠️ Before disassembling, do not forget to turn your phone off.
Disassembly of the mobile device Sony Xperia XZ1 (Sony Xperia XZ1 G8342, G8341) with each step description and the required set of tools.
Step 2. Remove the tray
Open the hatch hiding the trays of the SIM and Memory cards (Micro SD), and remove them.
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.
Step 9. Disconnect the battery connector
Disconnect the battery connector as soon as possible.
ℹ️️ The Sony Xperia XZ1 G8342/G8341 model has a battery LIP1645ERPC 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 13. Disconnect the connectors
Disconnect the coaxial cable connector, inter-board sub-screen cable connector, headphone jack socket cable connector, charging port cable connector.
⚠️ Do not pull on the cable or pry it with a sharp tool, the connectors are pretty weak and break easily, or the cable falls out of the end (lug).
Step 14. 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.
Step 17. Remove the cameras
Disconnect the connectors and remove the front (selfie) and rear cameras.
