Introduction

The following guide will show you how to replace the motherboard in the Digitac Jazz Ultratab C725. This guide requires the use of a soldering iron multiple times. If you are unfamiliar with soldering, we recommend that you check out this soldering guide.

Locate the four 3.5 mm Phillips head screws holding the silver back plate and the screen together. There are 2 screws on the top and another 2 screws on the bottom. Using the Phillips #00 Screwdriver, remove all 4 screws. Remove the screws with the least amount of force possible to avoid any damage to the threads. If thread damage occurs, screw removal will be much more difficult or may even become impossible.
