Introduction

Screen replacement (without frame)

Parts

No parts specified.

  1. 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.

    • 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.

  2. 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.

  5. Put some adhesive (or some glue?) I used thin double-sided tape I had cut the right shape. the side of the screen are less than 1mm wide, it's hard to do here...
