The back cover protects and covers all of the inner components of the Samsung tablet. In order to access any of these component, the back cover will need to be removed. Additionally, if the back cover has become damaged, this guide will show you how to remove and replace it.

Parts

No parts required.

Place the plastic opening tool between the face of the display and  rim of the back cover of the device. Move the plastic opening tool in a downward motion until you see separation between the tablet and back cover.

  • Try to separate evenly on all sides until the screen detaches from the device backing completely.

  • If this is the first time removing the back cover, it will be rather difficult to separate it from the tablet.

I did some diy fixing because my tab-s came having issues. All battery connection related. Easy fix about 10 minutes but now the back cover won't sit flush and there's a large gap…idk what to do now it's infuriating there no broken tabs or connections
