In order to open any device, you need a set of tools. In the case of repairing a tablet computer It looks as follows.
- Special set of shaped screwdrivers. There are screws of different shapes on different devices. Such a set of screwdrivers with a variety of cross-sections will come in handy for repairs.
- A thin knife or plastic spatula. Will help you open tightly adhering elements of the body. You can use a guitar pick.
- Surgical tweezers. Handle where your fingers can’t reach.

- You need it when you disconnect the sensor from the matrix, and the protective glass from the frame of the case.
Removing the cover
- Carefully read the instructions (either included with the unit or on the Internet).
- Using a plastic spatula, pick, or fine knife, locate the retaining clips. They are located in different places on different models. Try not to damage them. Later it will be difficult to assemble the device back.
- Inspect the case for screws and screws. If there are any, unscrew them with a suitable shaped screwdriver.
Opening the top part
The front part is opened in the same way. It is necessary to unfasten all the latches. Pay attention to the screws inside the tablet when you remove the back cover. Some of them go through and hold the front panel frame. Be very careful not to break the monitor.
A daisy chain is a flat strip of wires. It has different widths depending on its purpose. As a rule, the widest goes from the motherboard to the display. Narrower loops connect the microphone, speakers, volume control buttons, and battery.
After the plastic case is separated from the main iron, examine the gadget’s insides. Using tweezers, carefully disconnect all the loops.
Be careful! A torn loop is almost impossible to repair. You’ll have to type the address of the nearest radio parts store into your navigator.
Removing the battery
The battery in the “tablets” is built-in and is connected to the device by a loop. It can not be removed as a battery from the phone. In most cases it is attached to the double sided tape, screws or glue base. Use one of the tools in your kit depending on how it is attached. Remove the battery.
Here, as never before, “straight hands” are needed. Working with a hair dryer, due to lack of experience, you can completely “kill” the most expensive parts of the tablet: the sensor, the display matrix and the motherboard. Further repair in this case will cost a pretty penny. It is easier to buy a new gadget.
The screen is three elements: the protective glass, the touchscreen, the monitor matrix. To separate the touchscreen from the matrix, heat it with a hair dryer around the edges. The temperature will melt the adhesive and further separation will not be difficult.
To separate the protective glass from the housing, use a plastic card. Use it to release the clips that are located on the front panel. If in the process some of them fail, double sided tape or a few drops of glue will help us to return the technique to its former appearance.
We have broken down the basic, most important steps in the repair of Android “tablets”. If your device is broken, and you doubt your abilities, it is better to give the device to a repair shop. Thus you get a guarantee for repair and save your nerves.
