    • If using fingers instead, pull evenly on the full width of the cable so the wires are not overly strained.

    • If you pull too hard you can damage the connector on the circuit board. Use a spudger or tweezers to push down on the black connector on the board while gently prying the battery connector loose. The connector breaks VERY easily.

    I’m new to working on these devices, but I am wondering why the battery is removed? Is that necessary for this repair? Thanks!

    Better disconnect battery before any repairs, therefore reducing the possibility of a short-circuit which could destroy the motherboard.

    Isolation tape can also be placed over the connection after disconnecting to prevent any accidental short-circuit mishaps, thus reducing the need to remove the battery.

Thank you so much for simplifying this guide for us novices. I have tried watching two videos where they assume I already have some Samsung repair knowledge. I feel confident I will be able to get the tablet up and charging in no time.

There is no need to remove the battery, only detach the power connector, cheers!
