    • Remove the back casing from the screen by sliding a credit card or a similarly thin but firm object in between the casing and the screen.

    • You may need to use a spudger to initially create separation between the screen and the casing.

    • Run this object around the perimeter of the tablet until there is separation between the casing and the screen.

    • Remove the back casing and set aside.

    • Peel tape off of ribbon connectors. Starting at the power button, work clockwise around the tablet.

    • To remove the camera ribbon cable, lift the flap using a spudger.

    • Pull the ribbon directly back to release it.

    • Remove the second ribbon cable by prying up the black flap using a spudger.

    • Pull the ribbon cable horizontally directly away from the battery.

    • Remove the final ribbon cable by pulling back the two black tabs on either side of the ribbon cable.

    • Pull the ribbon horizontally directly away from the battery.

    • Unscrew the thirteen 4.75mm screws around the perimeter of the tablet using a PH 00 screwdriver.

    • Unscrew the four 3.75mm screws and plastic washers using a PH 00 screwdriver.

    • Lift up the circuit board.

    • Unscrew the final two screws that were underneath the circuit board.

    • These screws are near the charging port and USB adapter.

    • These screws are also 3.75mm and can be interchanged with the second set of screws only.

    • Lift the circuit board and black internal mounting piece away from the screen.

    • Set the circuit board aside.

    • Be careful of the soldered antenna as you separate the pieces.

    • Be careful of the soldered ribbon that is connected to the power source. This ribbon is fragile.

    • Remove the L shaped ribbon cable from screen.

    • The camera is attached to the end of this cable.

Conclusion

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