  37. Nokia G22 Screen Assembly Replacement, Only the screen assembly remains: step 37, image 1 of 1
    • Only the screen assembly remains.

    • During reassembly, compare your new replacement assembly to the original part:

    • If your part has no battery adhesive, remove the clear liner on the pre-cut battery adhesive and apply the sticky section to the battery well. Remove the opaque liner before continuing to the previous step.

    • If you're reusing your original battery, carefully inspect it for any signs of physical damage. If it's bent, creased, dented or scratched, replace it with a new battery. Installing a damaged battery is a safety hazard.

Vous marquez "Il est possible de remplacer uniquement l'écran, mais cela nécessite une procédure différente". Pouvez-vous svp me donner le lien pour changer juste l'écran ?

Merci !

Bonjour Emilie,

Nous ne proposons malheureusement pas de guide pour le changement d'écran seul. La procédure est plus complexe et potentiellement plus risquée car la séparation du châssis et de l'écran nécessite une certaine dextérité. Il y a toujours plusieurs possibilités de réparation mais nous recommandons plutôt d'opter pour cet écran complet fournit par Nokia, et donc de suivre les instructions du tuto ci-dessus.

Bonne journée,

Sandra

Bonjour,

Les étapes 30 et 31 ne sont pas nécessaire, l'écran neuf est livré avec la connectique neuve.

Les étapes 33 et 34 ne sont pas nécessaire, le support caméra et la mousse sont fournis neuf avec le kit et l'autocollant neuf.

Idem étape 38, le film plastique est fournis dans le kit, il faut mettre le film neuf sur l'écran avant de replacer la batterie.

Sinon, super tutoriel, le remplacement se fait sans soucis avec le kit d'outillage.

Bonjour Antoine,

Merci de votre remarque ! Même si ces étapes ne sont effectivement pas indispensables comme vous l'avez souligné, nous avons préféré les conserver afin d'être le plus précis possible et pour que les utilisateurs n'oublient pas d'installer ces pièces lors du remontage !

À bientôt,

Sandra

As someone who has never replaced a screen for a mobile phone before, this guide was incredibly helpful.

I would recommend a pen and some paper to mark down what steps you have taken so far and an organised as well as a labelled area for screws as they are very tiny and easy to lose.

19/10 I'd be confident to follow this guide again!
