Introduzione

This guide instructs you to remove the Display Assembly, which consists of the LCD and the Digitizer. After removing this assembly, you will be able to access other parts of your phone as well.

  1. Insert your fingernail or a plastic opening tool into the pivot on the side of the SIM tray. Pry open the tray to get it out of the socket.

  3. Heat the front face (sides, top, bottom) of the phone with the iOpener, a hair dryer, or a heat gun for 60 seconds to loosen the adhesive around the edge of the glass. If using an iOpener, heat it in a microwave for thirty seconds. If using an iOpener, heat it in a microwave for thirty seconds.

    Heat the phone in the microwave??? I really hope you meant to say heat the iopener tool in the microwave.

    My phone had a substantial amount of adhesive between the copper area on the back of the display assembly (see pic in step 10) and the frame (see pic in step 13). There was no way to have known that as I started to remove the glass, but this made it difficult to lift the glass up and eventually led to the glass cracking as I tried to work the plastic opening tool up along the side of the phone (about in the spot shown in the second picture of this step). In hindsight, I think it would have been extremely difficult to remove the front glass undamaged without first starting to separatie that adhesive from the frame, but I’m not sure what would have been the best way to do that. My guess is I would have needed to slide a tool with a thinner/sharper edge upward from the bottom while pulling on the suction cup to start separating the back of the display assembly from the frame, and worked on both that and the edges of the glass at the same time.

  7. Pull the lower half of the screen screen with the suction cup while holding down the frame of the phone to separate both components.
    • Pull the lower half of the screen screen with the suction cup while holding down the frame of the phone to separate both components.

    • Only lift the lower part of the screen. It is connected with a clip to the top of the motherboard and can rip off if you pull too hard.

  8. Once the glass is off, you will see a small clip covering the screen connection to the motherboard at the top of the phone. Use tweezers to grab the clip by the crease on its side and pull it out. Once the glass is off, you will see a small clip covering the screen connection to the motherboard at the top of the phone.

    If possible, disconnect the battery BEFORE you undo the screen connector. The battery flex is on the left, just under the LCD cable assembly.

  10. Remove the display assembly (LCD and Digitizer).

    All that copper/tin foil, whatever it is, stayed glued to the case and tore off the screen. I hope it isn’t important. What is it for anyways?

    Good Question. Mine ripped a little bit 2.

    Probably heat displacement, you’ll find them on the back of most Samsung OEM LCD assemblies & high quality replacements. It’s probably not a big deal if you tear it, after all where’s the heat supposed to go from there? Pat yourself on the back for getting the LCD & glass up in one piece, don’t be surprised if nobody else shares your enthusiasm.

Great guide but I don't think its difficult, one of the easier repairs out there.

Okay, well, the hairdryer didn’t work. Or maybe that suction cup might help lift a screen that *isn’t* shattered…?

Ah, well. At least the guide was free and the screen kit was cheap; now it’s all just trash.

Suction cup does not work on a cracked screen. You will loose vacuum via the gaps in the cracks. Also be patient with the hair dryer. You must not rush that process. The idea is to heat the edge of the glass so that the glue strip under will melt or get soft enough to pull lose. Not to hot and not to cold. To hot and you damage the phone. To cold and the glue wont melt. It must be hot enough to touch with your finger for a few seconds before burning you. Then keep heating all the way around as you work IF you are working slow. The glue will harden if it cools done. I broke many screens before the process clicked in my mind. Now I realise how easy it was altogether.

Good luck

So we got it apart, which wasnt hard, just a pain! But yeah in the directions it says to put back together just reverse disrecyions. Umm yeah thats NOT working, i can NOT get the %#*@ screen connector reconnected. I've been trying for the 2 hours and it's not working! How am I suppose to line it up? And is it suppose to just clip together? What am I missing??? Please help!

How do you reseal the screen? Do new screens come with glue to reattach the screens with?

Hi, Good Job! It will make it fully complete if you discuss the sealing of the screen. I purchased this phone because of its ruggedness and resistance to water and dust. By opening up the phone I removed those important properties that served me fine for the last 5 years. I found out that you can buy pre-cut double-sided tape. How good? How easy? I will find out soon. Thanks for sharing.
