    • Be sure you are prying up on the hinged retaining flap, not the socket itself.

    • Pull the ribbon cable out of the connector with a pair of tweezers.

    • Grasp the ribbon cable as close to the connector as possible with the tweezers to avoid tearing it.

  24. Nintendo 3DS Lower LCD Replacement: passo 24, immagine 1 di 2 Nintendo 3DS Lower LCD Replacement: passo 24, immagine 2 di 2

    • Starting at the bottom right corner, insert the flat end of a spudger between the touchscreen and LCD frame and gently pry the touchscreen off the LCD.

    • Do not run the spudger down the side of the display assembly to loosen the touchscreen. The two components of the display assembly are held together by a fairly weak adhesive tape, and running the spudger between the two could tangle or damage the tape.

    • Insert the spudger into the top right corner between the two pieces and pry the touchscreen off the LCD frame.

  27. Nintendo 3DS Lower LCD Replacement: passo 27, immagine 1 di 2 Nintendo 3DS Lower LCD Replacement: passo 27, immagine 2 di 2
