Introduction

You will be removing many pieces of hardware during this process. Store all of these pieces in a safe location so as not to lose them. Also, save all the pieces of tape and/or plastic that will be removed as they are very important in securing wires internally.

    • Do not fully open the back cover or you risk damaging the speaker wire.

    • Use a spudger to disconnect the speaker connection from the motherboard.

    • There will be two 5mm Phillips #00 screws that need to be removed from the motherboard.

    • Some devices may have a piece of tape or plastic over the ribbon cable latch. If your device has this, remove it before continuing.

    • Carefully lift the black ribbon cable latch upwards with a spudger or other similar tool.

    • Once the ribbon cable latch is opened, insert the pointed end of the spudger, or other similar tool, underneath the ribbon cable.

    • Slowly pull out the ribbon cable in a straight, flat motion with respect to the latch.

    • Be careful not to touch any of the electrical components on the motherboard as damage may ensue.

    • Carefully lift the motherboard out of the plastic housing by the edges while guiding the ribbon cable through the slot.

    • Store the motherboard on a safe non-conductive surface, preferably an anti-static mat.

Conclusion

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