Entry method is to remove the rear bathtub case, the seal is easy to break with opening tools.
  • Entry method is to remove the rear bathtub case, the seal is easy to break with opening tools.

    • The bathtub case is attached to the front display panel by soft plastic clips and without adhesive.

  • A spring connector connects the motherboard to the bathtub case so no need to worry about damaging fragile cables during removal.

  • The battery cable runs short and requires a careful and precise wiggle to remove its connection from the motherboard.

  • Only two adhesive pull tabs secure the battery. This is preferred over adhesive which requires heat and prying to separate.

  • The adhesive strips will need to be replaced after removal.

  • Layer of components removable upon opening: power/volume button cable, loudspeaker.

  • The power/volume button cable is lightly secured with adhesive.

  • Two Phillips #0 screws secure the loudspeaker housing.

  • The display, digitizer, and camera cables can be disconnected without removing the motherboard.

  • The motherboard is secured to the display frame by three Phillips #0 screws.

  • The Micro-USB port, headphone jack and microphone are soldered to the motherboard. These are common failure points and it would be better if they could be individually replaced.

  • The front and rear camera are tethered and will need to be replaced together if one where to fail.

  • The digitizer is fused to the front case but the LCD display can be isolated by unclipping it from the assembly with an opening tool.

  • The Acer Iconia One 7 earns an 8 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):

    • LCD and front glass are not fused and can be replaced individually.

    • Battery is easy to replace.

    • Modular design allows replacement of many individual parts.

    • Standard Phillips screws used throughout.

    • High wear components soldered in place, which increases replacement costs.

    • Manufacturer does not provide user-accessible repair documentation.
