Did this video help you?

e5frog: Just swapped the digitizer of a Samsung Galaxy Tab SM-T535, if using a metal tool like a putty knife it's very easy to scratch the chrome finish from the frame when removing the glass. I suggest something in plastic instead, perhaps a butter knife or a plastic card similar to a credit card. With a shattered glass it's quite a pain to remove it but I thank you for your help.

miamidecor: Hi, I'm wondering if you can tell me what I can do if the tiny connecter tab (it's the gold part you slide down at mark 3:26 on your video ) that you lift up to slip the cable in and then push back down to secure the cable tab then cover with the tape has fallen off? I can't tell if it's actually broken or if it's possible to slide it back into the connector on the board, nor can I tell what side is up or down which is left or right... I tried to replace the digitizer but I believe I ordered the wrong digitizer for my tab 2 10.1. My Tab2 says GT-P5113 on the board inside but says GT-P5113TS WiFi 16 Gig on back of case. The replacement digitizer ribbon that didn't work says GT 5100 (espresso 10.1") KH REV0.1ED R.D63. I'm about to order another digitizer but I'm worrying about the connector tab being off and if there's a way to buy/install a new one if it's actually broken or if I can slip it back together or if it's possible the cable can still work by taping the tab down firm enough! Any advice would be appreciated.

Fabrizio Malta: Thank you for video!! With this procedure I repaired a Tab P7300 screen.

Mike Doran: Quick Tip: test that all is working before putting the back cover back on.

M Brush: 1. My 10.1 has 1 screw on each side of the charging port under plastic stickers. I did not notice this until the housing cracked around those screws. Very minor cracks and the back did separate, once the screws were dislodged from the plastic. If had noticed, would have Google searched and found that they are 'tri-wing' screws. Oh well. Cracks were minor and didn't get in way of reassembly. 2. Be aware that a severely shattered digitizer (think spider-web) can be a much messier removal. 3. Note that your putty knife can get in between the digitizer and the adhesive strip that is secured to the face of the LCD, as it did for me. The result is a much messier removal as glass shards dislodge without that adhesive to hold it together. Note that the video shows a silver frame around the LCD on 3 sides. If you get done and it's all black w/ adhesive on it, you left a layer on the LCD that needs to be removed w/ heat gun. 4. Fear not if you think you scratched the LCD w/ your putty knife. I thought I messed the LCD up when my hand slipped, but it turned out to be nothing but adhesive that spread out along the path of the knife. Some windex and some light elbow grease and it was gone. 5. Be careful about the placement of the new digitizer. It can seem flush on all 4 sides, yet still have one of the cameras partially blocked. Luckily, I was able to slide the digitizer enough to clear the blockage before the seal was final. Thanks to the original poster. I hope these additional tips help. Good luck!

Stephanie Medford: i replaced my charger port and in the process i cracked my screen ..wasnt sure how it came apart... anyway im going to do the screen and battery next thanks alot great video and straight to the point! ... 

Jeff T: Amazing instructions. Been in IT since 1999 and this was a great how-to. Two things I would add; first, if you have a broken screen like the one pictured you can use packing tape across the breaks to secure the glass. Note, that when you are heating the edge to keep 2 inches away and move across the edge a a good pace. I just did this for a NOTE 3 and it worked perfectly to keep the broken glass in place and not burn the tape. Secondly, when you're separating the glass with the heat gun, go around a few time like in the video and then I used a box cutter to go around the edge first. Then I used my heat gun and kept the blade of my box cutter hot as I went around the edge to separate the glass. The reason I did this was because the break lines were everywhere and there was only one whole edge to take away from the frame. Also, the razor edge of a box cutter is very thin and easier to use than a putty knife. 

Astrid Dragons: This just made me sadder my brother sat on my tablet it has cracked because of it I was wondering if you could fix it you seem trustworthy for this type of job

DryGuillotine: I took a chance and bought this tablet for $40 on craigslist hoping to be able to fix it myself with an aftermarket digitizer from ebay. This video was tremendously helpful! Thank you!!!!! Also, my hair dryer worked great in lieu of a heatgun.

Victor Manneh: excellent infro!!! 

Chris Blakey: One bit of advice (having just done this, and subsequently trashed by Tab) is to be very careful when the battery connector is removed. When applying force to separate the digitiser, the pressure from the connector on the back of the tablet cracked my LCD. Lesson learned, just don't make the same mistake. *embarrassed*

Paul Griffin: I have now tried 2 separate digitizer screens, no luck?? The ribbon code matches perfectly to my old one. Any suggestions? All other cables are plugged in and secure? This is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1...ribbon cable 0.3T_Rev03...Machine powers on but no activity from touch screen

Horacio Hidalgo: Can the flex cable break if it isn't bent or anything like that

trinity iman: Can I pay u lol

mustangcrazy87: Replaced the screen in my Tab 3.0 10.1..great video. I had my new screen off to the right by about a half a millimeter and it didn't fit right. Very important to align it perfectly! 

Fernando Hefez: Hi. excellent video..I want to do a question. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5113TS. but when I opened it, surprisingly I found printed on the flex: "GT-P5100KTL" R01. Could you please tell me if are they all compatible and mainly if the "Rev", must be 01 too? Can I buy any model 5110 or 5113, rev 03 or rev 01 ? do you think, it will work or not?. many thanks

Bailey Edwards: r the steps the same as the 7.0

Carl Knox: Thanks pal for posting this very informative video. It helped me to fix my wife's tab 10.1 screen.
