Introduction

Follow these guides to properly remove and install a new earpiece on the Sanyo SCP-8100. If you cannot hear anything during calls or the sound quality is not clear, then you may need to replace the earpiece.

  • Note: You will need to use a push pin to pull out the stickers. Using a spudger or an opening tool will not be sufficient enough. They are too thick to use and will make it difficult to use.
