Introduzione

If you are a constant headphone user, the jack on your Galaxy Tab S3 can get worn out over time. If you have already tried cleaning the debris out of the headphone jack with a toothpick and it still doesn't work, you may need to replace the jack. This guide will show you how to properly remove and replace the headphone jack module.

  1. To soften the adhesive holding the tablet together, heat up the edges of the glass panel using a heated iOpener on the edge of the device.
    • To soften the adhesive holding the tablet together, heat up the edges of the glass panel using a heated iOpener on the edge of the device.

    • We used two iOpeners to open up the tablet. The process is doable with a single iOpener, but would take substantially longer. Alternatively, you can use a heat gun to quickly loosen the adhesive.

    • Leave the iOpener on edge for two minutes.

    • Be careful not to burn yourself while handling the hot iOpener. For more information on the iOpener, use the iOpener Instructions Guide.

  2. Place a suction cup near edge that you heated up with the iOpener.
    • Place a suction cup near edge that you heated up with the iOpener.

    • Press down on the suction cup to create a seal, and pull up with force to create a separation between the display and the midframe.

    • Use an opening tool to split apart the glass panel from the midframe.

    • Be careful to not break the glass when prying from the frame.

    • As you continue along the edge using the opening tool, use a plastic card to keep the glass separate from the midframe.

    • You can also use multiple opening picks instead of a plastic card.

    • As you remove the glass panel, be careful not to tear the ribbon connecting the motherboard to the display.

    • Pull off the glass panel using the suction cup.

    • Carefully disconnect the ribbon connecting the display assembly to the motherboard. You can disconnect this ribbon from either end.

    • Insert the pointy end of the spudger into the headphone jack.

    • Lift the spudger up to snap the headphone jack module off of the motherboard.

    • Be careful to avoid inserting the spudger too far or applying excessive force, as this may damage the inside of the headphone jack.
