How to Instructions: Replacing Blackberry 9700 Full Housing
I recently purchased a full housing kit on ebay for my 9700. It comes with the front, back and middle pieces. Anyone know how to change this yourself? I have looked on youtube, but they are not very informative. I found a dissasemble one and the others don't show how to replace the middle piece. If anyone can please give me a step by step process, so I don't screw up my phone I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Before you change your housing or even think about taking apart your blackberry...
1. Your manufacturer's warranty will be void.
2. You won't be able to get a replacement unit or send it in for repair without paying the full cost.
Just wait until the warranty is flat out and change the housing from there on.

I have just replaced the full housing of my BBB9700 and my phone is turned on, but I can't see anything on the LCD. What can be wrong? I did everything as it is shown on the tutorial video. I started removing LCD but then realized that I don't have too, so I stoped doing that and moved all the parts to the new housing.
EDIT: I have realized that LCD backlighting isn't working ... that can't be good :/ Is there anything to do except changing the whole LCD (which is really expensive...)?

I would love to see what you posted, but can't see anything.
EDIT: Oh I see this is some kind of bot ...
I went to a repait shop and they say that it's gonna cost me about 70-80€ (90-102$) to repace the LCD on my Bold, which is really a lot of money for a repair. But I'm not sure I want to replace the LCD by myself, because I just wanted to change the housing and f***ed up the LCD.
