Introduzione

If your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is stuck in a reboot loop, your motherboard may need to be replaced.

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

For more information on connectors, visit this page.

  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.

    • 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.

    I replaced the battery and nothing no screen nothing. the batt was 3.7 V though.

    The old one had 0V. I might have messed up the ribbon cables?

    I put back the cover on it.

    Held on the power button for 10 seconds, nothing. Held the power button and the volume up button for 10 seconds… also nothing..

    I am leaving it charge for a while now. Even though if your battery is like full (3.7V measured) it should come on… but nothing..

    Lets wait and see. Or this will be garbage…

All connections with other components come via cable connectors at different points on the board, but all components of the motherboard come complete already on the board, many with EMI shields.

Here is the link to the part product page which can give you pictures of the part itself which looks like the final picture of Step 19

The Instructions and illustrations were very helpful to follow and replace Motherboard for Samsung galaxy tablet S2 10.1,

I will need to purchase the part at our local elecrtonics shop and hopefully might find one and do the replacement following your instruction guide.

If not able to find at our local shops then I would place order with you and purchase part from you.

Thank you very much for kind assistance,
