    • Insert the plastic opening tool into the seam near the corner of the device.

    • Slowly slide the tool around the perimeter of the device, gradually prying up the screen.

    • It is normal to hear snaps as the spring clips holding the screen in place are released.

    • It is also normal to hear adhesive separating, as a small amount is used to help secure the screen.

    • When the screen is free of all spring clips and adhesive, slowly open the device like a clam shell with the hinge being the left hand side of the device.

    • Do not completely separate the screen from the case by more than a few inches, as they are still connected by three orange ribbon cables.

    • Safely place the device back on the table by laying the screen face down.

    • There will be some slight overlapping of the back of the case over the screen.

    • Remove the battery (secured by six screws and a white wire connector) by following the removal portion of this battery replacement guide.

    • The device that we wrote this guide for did not come with a battery, so we cannot include it in our own guide steps.

    • The battery is removed during all repairs to protect against short circuits, shocks, and internal damage to the device.

    • With a Phillips #00 screwdriver, remove the one 3.8 mm screw in the LED chip. The LED chip is a small green chip (about 1 square centimeter) located at the top center of the device.

    • Gently remove the chip with a pair of precision tweezers by grabbing the chip from one side, being careful not to pinch on a black piece of hardware on the chip.

Conclusión

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
