  1. Opening up the scale was not an easy task – there was a lot of double-sided tape involved. The back of the scale is fastened with four Torx screws – easy enough. The entire backplate, however, is glued to the front with double-sided adhesive cushions. Removing it simply involved pulling it firmly enough to break the adhesive, but not so hard as to break the connectors. With the backplate removed, you can immediately spot 4 loads cells, one in each corner.

  4. I’ve made an attempt to design a block diagram for the whole setup. This won’t be 100% accurate as I don’t know all the details but it will give you an idea on how the components are interlinked and work together.

Thanks for sharing your experience, wouldn’t guess the double sided tape trick without your help.

Soon my scale will be deactivated by Nokia and was wondering what I can do with it.

Hi please tell me what are battery dimensions. I need to order one - cause mine is already dead.

mkruczek - Contestar

Hi, I never took note of the dimensions, it’s best you open up the scale yourself to check it out.

Since the battery is dead you’ll have to do it anyways ;)

Thanks for the breakdown info. I'm replacing the battery as well. It's 63x50x5mm. 2100 mAh, 7.98Wh, 3.8V

I think this battery should be exactly the same:

Hi,

my battery died as well. Was the Samsung battery the correct replacement?

With best regards

Hello,

Thanks to ifixit.com for the information is very helpful. I am in the process of replacing the battery, but before I do I am weighing options.

I was wondering, if there is data on replacing the battery successfully? If the battery solder or is quick connected to a housing that is solder to the PCBA?

higuzman - Contestar

hi higuzman, the battery is soldered directly to the PCB, no connector attached. You can see this in step 1 on the 3rd picture ;)

Hi all,

Has anyone got the right battery or managed to get a suitable replacement? Was the Samsung one ok ?

Steve - Contestar

My issue is the small USB PCB. When I unplug the USB cable inside, the scale boots up. When I plug it back in to the small PCB it shuts off. I think the external switch that's on the outside of the scale got water damage. Somehow is stuck in off mode, the white lights do not light up anymore. Anyone have any tips on this issue?
