I cannot open a SL056ZE.

I mean I opened it up to all around it, it lifts but there seems to be part of ‘blue’ plastic cover - internally - that is kind of locked into right side of PCB [looking at it with battery below !

Any ideas?

Probably amazon locking it because of their stupid repair practices, Is it possible to rip it off or unscrew it somehow and reattach it? Get back to me if that is a possibility

Two problems I have found so far. The first one is that the cover has some clips on the inside so you have to play with the cover until you can get them to release. Be careful as too much pressure will crack the screen. The second problem is that the battery is glued to the metal frame that you just removed the 4mm T4 Torx screws. Something that should take a few minutes has taken me a few days just to make sure I don't destroy the screen.

An addition to my previous post: I had to use a plastic kitchen spatula in order to separated the battery from the metal tray. It has two glue strips that were reused to hold the new battery pack in place. The old battery pack was totally destroyed and will be properly recycled. Now it's a struggle to get the case to mate with the screen and lock in place. so far only one side has mated properly. will keep trying until its done correctly.

I was thinking my battery may need changing as slow charging, but after reading all these comments, I may just buy a new tablet! May be cheaper than going to a shop to ask them to do it and they need it up.
