    • Use a plastic credit card, or other thin object, to separate the battery from the screen.

    • Be sure to work the card carefully and slowly around in order to not damage, break, or deform the battery.

    • Carefully set the battery aside.

    • Place the plastic opening tool on the base of the black ribbon clip and pull up, like a lever, to release the mount. This should release the clip holding the ribbon to the mount.

    • Pull the ribbon out of the mount.

    • There should be masking tape on the yellow ribbon. Pull the tape off of the motherboard and wrap it around the yellow ribbon.

    • Do not pull the tape completely off the motherboard, as it is used to protect components on the ribbon.

    • To remove the ribbon from the mount, follow the same steps in Step 3.

  9. Kurio 7 Screen Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 1
    • Pull back the ribbons and put the battery near the bottom of the Kurio.

    • The motherboard is now removed so that other components can be worked on.

    • This is tricky, and an extra pair of hands may help. Use the opening tool to pry the screen out from underneath the tabs holding it in place.

    • Once you have created some space between the screen and the cover, slide the opening tool under the screen.

    • Slide the opening tool around the outside of the screen, releasing the tabs as you go along.

    • Be careful not to pull too hard on the motherboard while doing this, as there are still many wires attached to the body of the device.
