  • 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.

I just did the same thing Hugh...does that mean my tablet is trashed? Can it be repaired?

This doesn't seem to address the digitizer directly... is it self evident how to replace it once the back cover is removed?

Marc Stuart - Reply

NOTE!

you will not be able to replace just the touch screen. You will need a digitizer/LCD assembly. At this moment in time it is cheaper to buy a working pre-owned tab than buying and fitting a new assembly. Beware of ebay and other seller that supply the digitizer only you will not be able to fit it you need a complete assembly.

This guide is seriously lacking detail, especially the very first step. All it says is to do is pry it open. Wrong. First of all don't even touch the screen until you have pried the rear plastic cover off first. That can be achieved by using a very thin plastic tool or metal tool if you are careful. There are snaps holding it in place so you will have to twist the tool to pop the tabs. Very tricky. The top glass has several cables that you will slice through if you don't know where they are when prying the top off. The audio jack at the top being one and the buttons on the bottom being the others. Take off the rear first disconnect audio jack cable and battery first!!!

I have to remplace the digitizer for this tab but 7.0 - the digitizer works fine when the tab is out the rear plastic cover. When i put the plastic cover, i have a line who doesnt work on the digitizer, any idea ?

I have seen videos and know the digitizer doesn't require all the steps mentioned here. You only remove the back, unplug the battery and digitizer cables the heat the edges of the screen to loosen the adhesive then pry it off and replace with new digitizer then just put it back togather. All the stuff he has you doing only half of what needs to be done if your replacing the screen itself. Which I have to do now my daughter broke mine.
