Introduction

Screen replacement (without frame)

Image 1/1: I removed the battery, but I think it's not mandatory. If you do, be careful, it's very well glued, and there is some wires behind.
  • Remove the back panel, and unscrew everything to remove the second back panel. Some screw are longer than other. But I mixed them without issue. Here I saw the solution for the network issue: the little contacts between motherboard and screen were bended.

  • Unplug all the connectors to the motherboard, included the two antennas The small flat ribbon in the corner is a little tricky, you have to switch the black part of the connector, not the white one like some other similar I saw before.
