Right to Repair



Original post by: Tom Chai ,


Since you've managed to keep the parts, just install them back. A heat gun should do the job. The only problem is to get the orientation right

Q3 is a 3 pin part, impossible to install backwards

U3 is a 6 pin part, the pin 1 faces 8 o'clock, the inscription faces right way up

the orientation of DZ101RF is not specified, but the inscription faces right way up




This is why I'm against prying the battery. puncturing the battery is dangerous, and you can easily scrape off tiny components. Avoid touching the battery. If you have to, just use the pull tab. If the tab breaks, remove all the expensive/delicate parts first, then pry the battery second
