Introduction

You will be removing the battery in this guide. If your battery will not charge or the charge does not last for more than a few hours, it is likely your battery needs to be replaced. There are several companies that supply replacement batteries for this tablet. It is necessary to remove the battery before removing any electrical components, and this guide will show you how.

  • Remove the 8 Phillips#00 3-mm screws holding the battery in place.

The photo highlighting the screws is incorrect, the highlight in the upper right side is a plastic tab, whereas the actual 8th screw to remove is on the bottom (but that's fairly easy to identify when performing the fix).

Image 1/1: Do not yank the connector by the wires. If it does not disconnect easily, slide a plastic opening tool between the white connector and the board to lift the connector away from the board.
  • Gently grasp and lift up the white connector located at the bottom right corner of the battery. It is connected to the battery by two blue and two red wires.

There is some sort of safe unit in the upper left corner. It is a connector that opens when you lift off the backside. The safe was not in properly fit when I closed the back. In fact, the most difficult step was to get the safe unit properly in place while closing the backside.

Thanks @henriknaslund for note on the "Safe Unit" I succesfully managed to hold it in pace with a little basic sticky tape. Did the job.

This was a great help! I was able to replace my son's battery in 10 mins. I purchased the battery from eBay for only $8. Saved me a lot of money.

My Note would not turn on at all even though it was fully charged. Did not think it was on/off button so I followed the instructions for the Bios (reboot). Thought about it and had a program that was being fussy about turning off maybe causing an overload. These are very easy instructions to follow and better yet, it worked! My Note turned on and all is good with my world again. Learned that I really need to back up everything I have on my note. I reviewed all the instructions for the replacing of various parts and have to say the parts prices are more than reasonable. Thank you very much for having these instructions available to us novices.

I just wanna say thanks, the instructions were easy to follow. I'm left-handed so I had to turn my tablet in opposite directions to get the job done. I was very nervous messing with computer parts. Thanks again.

Do you have to buy the plastic opening tool or does it come with the tablet? I don't believe I have one. Can I use something else?

Wow, these instructions were great! Lucky I had a tiny enough phillips screwdriver to remove the battery screws, and a tiny flat screwdriver to substitute for the plastic opening tool. Thank you!
