Introduction

The replacement for the speaker is rather simple. However, soldering is necessary when attaching the new speaker.

Use an opening tool to push in and release 16 small plastic clips around the edge of the case. As the clips are released, gradually pry the case apart. It is easiest to start on the corners.

I'm not sure what's wrong with ours. The color started fading and the picture looked strange. If I pressed the cubby firmly together it would work for a little while. Now I can't get that to work either. Could it just be a loose connection?

Check the connection for the LCD at the motherboard. Lift up the latch to release the cable, remove and reinstall the cable, and then close the latch again.

Where do I find the LCD connector? My screen is very dim but works.

While using the opening tools, slowly get under the top part of the speaker. Then slowly move down the speaker to detach it from the device (there is a small amount of adhesive).

Jasen, where can I purchase the replacement speaker for the Sprout?

There is no way that I would want to take apart a new tablet to replaceor repair the speakers. Why not install it correctly the first time? Appears to be an ongoing issue.
