Introduction

This replacement guide will show you how to replace the LCD and Digitizer for your Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. Before you do this though, you'll need to remove both the back case of your tablet as well as the motherboard. Both of those guides are listed here. Follow all instructions carefully.

Using a plastic opening tool, wedge in the seam between the screen and the case. Rock the tool by moving it towards and away from the middle of the screen, trying to separate the tape holding the screen and case together. This is a long process, so don't try and rush it. Also, be careful about applying pressure.

I completed this tonight.

One place I would express a little more care is when working around the front button. I tore the back of the button slightly when I was removing the digitizer.

Question: what is best for removing the adhesive around the frame? I was using what was on hand (valve oil for a trumpet). It worked but the adhesive should of come off without so much effort. A lot more scarping. I have used Goo Gone before but it seems very messy.

This was the third android tablet I have replaced a screen and or digitizer before (all Galaxy Tabs).

Thank you for the guide.
