  • Since Samsung applied the design that the USB board come with soft keys together, DIY replace USB board and LCD screen alone become much more difficult.

  • Be careful with the soft sensor keys on the bottom especially the flex.

  • Could you see the mark on the right of the home button? Push the button as its direction and can loosen it from securing slot easily. And then cut the adhesive sticker under the flex.

Add Comment

  • Remove home button flex. Though it's a small component, it's really complicated and difficult to replace, even at the risk to break the screen.

Can the s pen be opened too? I wanna know because my s pen clicking mechanism gets stuck and doesn't click.

Yes it separates at the seam where the darker section with the Samsung text meets the light gray part. Here is a decent youtube video some guy made: https://youtu.be/ixNXUh2fnZo I would recommend trying plastic tools to open instead of a razor blade, also graphite is quite messy so I would probably use a small dab of light silicone grease. I buy it at the hardware store in the plumbing section (used for faucet seals). It's a good lightweight grease for rubber & plastic parts and anything sensitive to petroleum base grease. Good luck!

Is the memeory stored on the motherboard? Or elsewhere?

Hi, My front glass lens cracked. Any step by step? I'm a home contractor/inspector with patience. I have limited experience repairing my PC's and Mac, etc. It looks like replacing it would have a 5 out of 5 difficultly rating. Would I be in over my head? Thanks!

Hi in step 9 it shows where the ribbon cable connects to the mother board. When taking this piece out of the package i accidentally tore a little bit of that ribbon cable. Am i screwed or is there hope for me? Please someone helpppppp

Mike G - Reply

Which ribbon cable? If it was he ribbon cable for the screen then you'll need to purchase a new digitizer. If it was one of the smaller components you may be able to replace just that piece on the mid-frame.

Anyone know how to repair the charging unit Hopefully without having to open it.

Can the cable for the antenna be moved outside of the phone by drilling a hole in the back and then be used to connect to an external antenna?
