Introducción

This guide teaches you how to disconnect the battery, a step that must be completed before anything else is replaced.

Caution: Some images display the steps using a metal spudger. Use the heavy-duty spudger instead to avoid damaging your circuits.

  1. The plastic opening tool may break during this step. You may need to use the heavy duty spudger instead. Insert the plastic opening tool between the glass screen and the back cover so the curved end of the plastic opening tool is under the glass. Gently pry the back cover away from the glass screen.

    • Be sure to lift the entire display from the body and that you are not are lifting the glass from the display. You will need to reach down a little further for the correct removal.

    • Continue inserting the plastic opening tool around the whole device screen to completely separate the back cover from the glass screen.

    Note that the headphone port protrudes into the back cover framing. Hence the rest of the back needs to be unclipped and taken off first.

    I had problems getting it to separate at first. Pushing down with my thumb on the very edge of the case from the front while pushing up with my fingers from the back flexed it enough to get a very small jeweler’s screwdriver in the gap. From there I worked it until I could get the little bread wrapper plastics clips in the space. When it needed something stronger a 1 or 2 inch plastic putty knife from Walmart did the trick.

  4. Insert the flat end of the heavy-duty spudger between the wires and underneath the battery connector. Carefully lift the black battery connector up to disconnect it from the motherboard. The metal spudger shown in the photo is not recommended due to the possibility of an electrical short. Use an ESD-safe tool, such as a heavy-duty (nylon) spudger.

Disconnected the battery, checked the contacts, reconnected it. As soon as I reconnected the battery I could smell and feel heat from the two silver areas on the MB (guessing RAM/Processors are under there). Still doesn't turn on. Any ideas?
