There are plenty of good videos that show how to sony w880i lcd screen replacement.

Here are two of the better ones.

An important comment from theses videos:

The only thing I'd add is that when the LCD connector goes into the phone, there is a tiny little black strip that has to be locked back into place that this chap obviously does very quickly but I didn't notice. After taking out the old LCD, just feel for the black locking device in the connector area push it back and forward to get used to it locking/unlocking

This is an important note.  If you do not lock the connector in, you will get either a white screen or a garbled screen.  Maybe not right away but the first time your w880i gets jostled the connector will come loose.

I hope the information provided helps you repair your Sony W880i LCD screen.
