Introduction

This replacement is rather simple aside from any soldering you will need to do when putting in the new speaker and the only tool needed will be the metal or plastic spudger.

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.

Slowly get under the top part of the speaker with your pry tool once this is done slowly move it down the speaker to detach it from the device (there is just a small amount of adheasive).

Remove the black strip of tape. Once this is done disconnect the wires (red on top black on bottom). The wires are soldered on.
