  • Insert the plastic opening tool into the seam of the tablet casing and gently pry upwards.

This image seems not to show the correct position where to place the tip of the tool initially. It suggests to pry between the frame and the glass pane from the top of the tablet. That's what I did and broke the glass - one device spoilt. Only the next picture correctly shows where to apply the tool.

  • Slide the tool along all four edges of the tablet, making sure that all the clips are released.

Good instructions and a worthy purpose to the site. Our devices should be more easily repaired. However, in my case the difficulty seems to be with the micro switch that the power button presses on. The micro switch and its circuit board look like they are replaceable. Does anyone know if repair parts are available for this device?

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Use a small amount of epoxy or other adhesive to attach the new button.
