Ensure that the device is completely powered down before beginning to take it apart
  • Ensure that the device is completely powered down before beginning to take it apart

  • Use a heat gun to melt the adhesive that holds the screen to the device

  • Move the heat gun around the edge of the screen for approximately 1 minute, or until the screen can be lifted off in the next step.

  • Make sure not to heat the screen for too long because too much can damage other components inside the tablet.

Use a suction cup to assist in lifting the screen while prying around its edges with a plastic spudger. If necessary use a metal spudger to pry the screen up, taking care not to scratch the device.

  • Be careful not to pull the screen too far off. It will still be attached to the device by a cable for the front facing camera and the wide display data cable.

  • Reattaching the screen will require adhesive to ensure that it stays in place.

This is not very useful if there is no way of getting the parts.

Ganz ehrlich, diese Anleitung hat mir persönlich nur teilweise weitergeholfen. Die Schritte sind ausführlich erklärt, jedoch fehlen einige wichtige Details wie z.B. die benötigte Temperaturstärke für den Air Heater um den Industriekleber schmelzen zu lassen, um das Display zu entfernen.

Dafür hätte ich mir gerne mehr Informationen gewünscht anstatt ‘stundenlang’ selbst zu experimentieren. 250°C und mindestens 2 1/2 Minuten einmal ringsherum föhnen hat den gewünschten Erfolg gebracht.

Honestly, this guide only provided partial help. The steps are explained in detail, but some important details, e.g. the required temperature for the Air Heater to melt the industrial adhesive to remove the display were lacking. For that I would like to have more information instead of 'experimenting for hours' myself. 250 ° C and at least 2 1/2 minutes of guiding the heat around the frame has brought the desired success.
