Introduzione

This guide explains how to replace a faulty Micro SD card reader in the Samsung Galaxy S3. This requires getting in the device, which with Samsung means lots of glue, so come equipped with an iOpener or heat gun. Once inside, the Micro SD card tray is totally modular, and is easy to remove and replace. You’ll need to replace the Micro SD card reader if your device doesn’t recognize or has trouble transferring data to or from a Micro SD card.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Next pry the Micro SD card tray up from the midframe on the left with your finger.

    • There is a layer of glue around the perimeter, so prying from the left, then downward should free the card reader from its sticky spot.

    • Remove the Micro SD card reader.
