Introduction

The Samsung VR is controlled by a motherboard located in a small compartment under the phone holder. A wire harness clips into this motherboard, and if there is a loss of functionality with the headset the user may want to check to see whether this wire harness has come disconnected. This guide will instruct the user how to access the motherboard for repair or replacement.

The motherboard partially sits on the inner mask piece of the headset and must be removed in order to remove the inner mask piece.

Caution is required while working on the headset as a wire harness connects the USB adapter to the motherboard. Care should be taken not to put any strain on the wire and to open the headset from right to left.

Remove the front cover to access a plate that holds the phone in place during use. Remove the four corner screw covers with a metal spudger to reveal four screws. Remove the sticker located at the top center to reveal two additional screws.
