How to remove circuitboard from 7th gen fire?
I don’t see any teardowns for the 7th gen fire (model SR043KL) and it seems to be significantly different from older models.
My goal is to examine/repair the USB power port (only working now when I apply a lot of force in one direction).
The upper right of the board (upper left in the photo) appears to have a cable that connects to something on the screen side. I don’t know the right way to unplug this connector. How should I remove it?
The black cable runs to the front. I suppose I need to unplug the gold ribbon side and peel up the component. But I don’t see how to release the connector. Which portion moves and in which direction? I’ve tried gently pushing the tan section of the connector up and toward the ribbon, but nothing moved.
Is this a good question?
