    • Carefully pull the back of the device (the silver portion) apart from the rest of the device.

    • If you pull back too forcefully the power button would move out of place.

    • Unscrew the visible Philips head screws (size: 3.968 mm) on the motherboard located on the top of left and right sides. Use a PH #0 sized screw driver head for removal.

    • Carefully bend the plastic frame to remove the motherboard.

    • Upon doing this make sure your power button on the bottom left side stays attached to the outer frame because it will loosen as the motherboard is moved upwards.

    • The display is attached to a dark yellow, flimsy, plastic material. This material is then attached to the motherboard. Tear off the plastic, successfully detaching the motherboard and display from each other.

    • Once the display is by itself, separate from the rest of the device, you are ready to put in your new display.

Conclusion

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