Introduction

This guide will show you how to open the back panel. This will allow the user to gain access to the device components and is necessary for most replacements and repairs for the Apex Tablet 7.

Image 1/1:
  • Unscrew the two 2.70 mm Phillips #00 screws on the side of the tablet that has the buttons and the headphone jack (bottom side when holding upright).

My unit does not have screws. How do I open it? Do I pry it opened between the front and back panels?

  • CAUTION: When removing the back panel of the tablet, take caution around the speaker. This is located in the lower right corner when looking at the back of the tablet. There are two wires inside connecting the tablet back panel to the device itself and this connection may be severed if the back is pulled off without care.

  • This connection is shown circled in the pictures.
