Introduction

The Nabi DreamTab HD8 contains two small internal front-facing speakers which can be sensitive to acute physical damage or overuse. The speakers themselves contain small magnets, so when removing the screws, you'll encounter some magnetic repulsion. We suggest using a non-magnetized screwdriver for this replacement. It uses 800 watts. The tablet is MP3, AAC and WMA compatible. Speakers can at times be one of the leading problems with tablets which is why they are located on the top of the open device to locate easier.

In addition to the four 2.5 mm screws, the speakers are physically connected to the motherboard via cables. Using the plastic opening tool, disconnect the connectors at this location to completely free the speakers. These components fit very snugly together, so make sure to use firm pressure to disengage the connectors. Avoid fingers from slipping to prevent injury on other sharp components of the object.
