Introduction

This guide will teach you how to replace the charging port in your Samsung Galaxy 10.1 2014 edition.

  • Using the nylon spudger or plastic opening tool along the edges of the screen, separate the back case off of the device.

  • If possible, consider using the black nylon spudger for a gentler separation.

Remove stylus before you remove. There’s a nubbin on the main board that may dislodge it stylus is in place. it is easily reinserted, but easy hassle to avoid.

It’s worth mentioning that there is a part of the device casing, accessible from the back, that can be removed but has very fragile retaining clips. Although the picture does show that the prying tool is lifting the screen, it is hard to see. You will not be able to access the charge port by removing a portion of the casing. You must remove the case from the screen side.

Place your finger on the thin black bar at the end of the ribbon tape and flip each one up.

  • Gently pull the ribbon tape on the battery away from the bar. Repeat this process for the second ribbon tape.

I would recommend disconnecting the battery at this stage in the process, as the connector can be lifted without disconnecting the cables. It’s generally best practice to disconnect the battery before disconnecting any other cables.

Remove the six 3mm screws around the battery with the Phillips PH000 screwdriver.

This step seems unnecessary, as the battery connector can be disconnected without lifting the battery. If you struggle to lift the connector, you could follow this step to get better leverage.

  • Lift up the battery from the bottom and situate the black nylon spudger underneath the battery.

  • Use the black nylon spudger to disconnect the multi-colored wires from the rest of the device.

After disconnecting the two blue electronic connectors, unhinge the metal part of the charging port with the black nylon spudger. Make sure to also disconnect the other end of the ribbon as well by pushing back the thin black metal bar.

Great guide. It helped me find the right component to order and gave me confidence to fix it myself. Actually the steps can be shortened. The battery does not need to be removed. So you need to do step 1 (remove the cover), first part of step 2 (remove the flat cable of the charge plug), step 5 and 6. Step 7 should be to replace the old part with the new part. And then of course the reversal of reconnecting via steps 6, 5, 2 and 1.
