Introduzione

Use this guide to remove and replace a dead or low battery in a Motorola Moto Z2 Play. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Warning: Because of the strong adhesive securing the display, minimal clearance for inserting your tools, and high heat required, there's a good chance of accidentally damaging the display when removing it. If you intend to re-use the display, take serious care when heating and inserting tools to separate the display from the rest of the device.

  1. Power off your phone before you complete any replacement steps.
    • Power off your phone before you complete any replacement steps.

  2. Heat the edges of your Motorola Moto Z2 Play screen for two to three minutes with a heat gun. You adjust the heat gun to 85 degrees centigrade, and be careful not to hold the heat gun on one position for too long; to avoid damaging, or "hotspotting" the LCD. The screen should be very warm, but not painful, to the touch. Reheat as necessary.

The screen should be very warm, but not painful, to the touch. Reheat as necessary.

    • If screen is cracked put strong adhesive tape across the screen in order to avoid breaking the screen further and receiving cuts.

    • If you don’t have access to a heat gun, a hair dryer can be used.

  3. Place suction cup in the middle of the screen and press down.
    • Place suction cup in the middle of the screen and press down.

  4. Pry the screen by wedging the plastic opening tool under the screen at the charging port. Work your way around the screen with the plastic opening tool. When you pry near the top-right and bottom-right corners, be careful not to pry too far, or you risk damaging the display cable.
    • Pry the screen by wedging the plastic opening tool under the screen at the charging port.

    • Work your way around the screen with the plastic opening tool.

    • When you pry near the top-right and bottom-right corners, be careful not to pry too far, or you risk damaging the display cable.

    • Complete these steps carefully because the screen is delicate and can easily crack. If the screen begins to resist prying, reheat the adhesive with your heat gun.

  5. Use a suction cup to lift up screen from left to right. If you don’t have a suction cup, wedge a spudger or a small plastic card under the screen and lift slowly. Failure to lift screen from left to right can cause damage to interior wires of your phone.

    • The locking bar is the small black bar located on the digitizer’s ZIF connector.

    • Be sure to push the locking bar back down using a spudger after you put the ribbon wire back in since the lock does not lock automatically.

  7. Identify the ribbon cable, located at the bottom right of the phone. Disconnect the ribbon cable, located at the bottom right of the phone, by pulling out and back with tweezers. Excessive force is not needed.
    • Identify the ribbon cable, located at the bottom right of the phone.

    • Lift the screen from the phone to completely detach.

    • If screen doesn't detach, go back to step 7 and 8 to make sure the bar is unlocked and ribbon connector is fully detached.

    • During reassembly, you may need to apply or replace the display adhesive on your display assembly. Use our display adhesive application guide to apply the adhesive and reseal your device.

  9. Remove the orange tape, located at the bottom right of the phone, using tweezers. Do not discard tape.

    Why can't they just go back to the phones where you can snap off the back and simply replace the battery? I'm afraid to do it myself and Verizon won't do it for me. Now I have to find someone whom I will have to pay to replace a battery. This is ridiculous. It should not be so difficult to replace a battery and I should not have to jeopardize my phone to replace a battery. Why? Sorry, I just needed to vent. I miss simplicity.

    I agree with both of you guys, but it’s the breaking point between performance, convenience, and safety. Older phones had batteries with hard protective casings that wouldn’t leave them vulnerable to pocket-fire if your keys jammed the battery.

    Unfortunately, with phones getting more powerful(requiring a higher-capacity battery), AND slimmer, the protective casing for the battery is literally the casing on the phone. Look at the battery above; it could easily be pierced and dangerously vent.

    I’m with you in wishing I could just pop a spare in, but those days have passed. =/

Awesome guide! where can someone get a replacement battery in Canada?

xbddd777 - Replica

Great instructions, clear and concise.

thank you

David Wyatt - Replica

so now that I've heated the adhesive to get the screen off do I need to apply new adhesive? or simply reheat it?

Hi Eli,

The most ideal option would be to replace the adhesive. This ensures the best chance for your phone to stay sealed. You can re-use the existing adhesive and it may work well enough for awhile.

Arthur Shi -

What type/brand adhesive do you recommend for this screen instead of trying to reuse the old adhesive. Typical 3M strips?

Jason - Replica

Pretty good guide altogether. The only thing I’d add is some more detail on the heating phase, as far as temperature, adhesive depth, strength etc. Don’t want someone putting a heatgun on max temp and using it on their screen for 3 mins, ya know?

Thanks for making it really straightforward though.

Total fail. Used an iOpener but could not judge how hot it needed to be to soften the adhesive nor how firmly it can be pried/pulled without damage. Ended up with multiple internal cracks in the screen. Tried finishing the repair anyway, couldn’t tell how far the flat-flex cables needed to be inserted into their sockets to make a good connection. Pix in the guide are not clear enough to tell, and I neglected to take my own photos.

Oh well, so much for repair. Kid got a new phone out of the deal, the Z2P is headed for the landfill.

Finished the guide , battery works well, only problem I encoutered was my own hastines with prying the screen out. On the right side near the fingerprint sensor i went too deep with the pryer and tore the flex cable. Now I am waiting for the new one. So I’ll update when it comes and I change it.

Can the battery be replaced with a larger one or is it too tight.

Philip Pike - Replica

Great guide! Worked perfectly for my Z2 Play, thanks!
