Note: As shown in the 3rd picture, It is important that the clip connected to the external plastic power button does not get removed completely. It is tricky to put this plastic button back into the hole.

    • Remove the 2 screws from the black metal part which covers the mute switch. Also remove the 1 screw, which is attached to the silver metal piece.

    • We remove the black metal part to release the mute switch and volume buttons, which are attached to another silver metal piece.

    • Note for reinstallation: After screwing back the metal pieces, perform a quick check that the buttons work properly. For the mute button make sure that the exterior and interior switches are sliding together. For the volume buttons, check that the buttons make a clicking noise. If the screws are too tight, then the volume buttons can be stuck.

    • Note: If the volume buttons were stuck, just loosening the screw on the silver metal piece may fix the problem. The whole flex assembly may not need to be replaced.

Thank you for your thank for that we are colleagues,

any questions, we are here.

Manuel carrion - Replica

how did you disconnect the flex cable from the places that it was attached when it was taken out? do you simply tear the entire cable off slowly at all places it is glued down or is it clipped down somehow? also for putting the new flex cable down do you just use loctite to keep the cable down or is there a specific way to make the connection such as soldering? THANKS A BUNCH!

Gautam Suri -

I recommend you take it off slowly, especially with so much patience to know and you make it easier when mounting.

the cable will only conectdo the board. that is covered by a strip of black tape.

Thanks Gautam for Questions.
