    • Place the blade of the tweezers in between the blue and black surfaces.

    • Using the prying tool, insert the tip of the tool in between the black plastic and the back cover of the device.

    • Pull upward to pry the black plastic away from the device. It will come off in pieces, but this is okay.

    • There will be thin black plastic surrounding four clear pieces where the buttons used to be located. Remove this as well.

    • Now you should be able to see the main board. A small gold connector strip will connect the screen to the main board.

    • Locate a small white rectangular connector found at the top middle of the main board.

    • Using a prying tool or your fingernail, move the black plastic piece located at the bottom of the white connector to an upward position (toward the screen).

    • This should free the gold connector strip and allow you to remove the screen.
