Introduction

In this repair guide, we will be replacing the LCD screen. This will need to be replaced if the screen is cracked or unresponsive when the device is powered on. For this fix you will need a Philips #1 screwdriver and a small plastic tool to remove the ribbon cable and pry the plastic covering open. It is imperative to carefully remove the ribbon cable because it is connected to the circuit board that powers the system. This guide is fairly simple and requires a minimal amount of time.

Good Luck!

First, you will need to remove all four M2x1-7 screws  (7mm length) located on the back of the device. This should be done using a Phillips #1 screw driver.
