    • Remove the tape holding down the wires, and carefully pry the battery off of the base of the device.

    • Pry carefully to avoid damaging the battery. The battery may start to bend slightly, this is normal and not a cause for concern.

    • It is best to use a plastic card or nylon spudger to remove the battery. Metal tools can puncture a battery, potentially causing a fire.

    • Once the pins are removed the screen should be loose from the frame and only connected by the brown film pictured.
