Once every part of the screen is separated from the back cover, you should be able to fully remove it with your hands. Once every part of the screen is separated from the back cover, you should be able to fully remove it with your hands.

Yikes. I began carefully prizing off the screen - but when it finally came away the connector (near the top of the screen, about 1” from the right side) got ripped, so the unit is damaged beyond repair. I think it would have been helpful if your guide had warned us about this possibility and given some advice about how to make sure it doesn’t happen. I now have a broken tablet and a brand new battery, likewise of no use to me. Pretty heartbroken - the unit had been working fine, mainstay of daily use.

After the battery is disconnected you may use your hands to pull out the battery. It may be a little difficult because there is adhesive on the backside of the battery.

You don't have to, just be careful with battery connector.

You have to be very careful with the battery connector. On mine, the plug was difficult to remove from the base and I ended up breaking the connections between the base and the circuit board. Maybe use the pry tool to hold the base down while easing out the plug.

No need to remove the battery. You don't even need to unplug it, but be sure if you don't unplug it that the battery doesn't have a charge left.

My tablet had a plastic frame around the sides and bottom under the back which was impossible to get around. I had to cut off the section covering the battery charging port in order to get the old one out and put the new one in. but it seems fine and charges well and I'm really pleased I could fix my son's tablet without spending a lot of money.

Very easy repair. Thanks very much!

Hey Danyf, Lithium Ion Batteries should never go fully dead. Your tablet is going to shut down before the battery goes fully dead. I would at-least unplug it to make sure you don't short out the battery, or fry the motherboard.

Hi All, just wanted ask a few questions regarding charging of Samsung galaxy 10.1 note.

I have recently changed a battery. In the start it was charging but now it's not? Do we have to reinstall drivers in android OS?
