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
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
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!!!
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
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
Bailey Edwards: r the steps the same as the 7.0
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!
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
Carl Knox: Thanks pal for posting this very informative video. It helped me to fix my
wife's tab 10.1 screen.
chm1980: would be possible to upload a guide like this one to the Samsung P3130 7"??
Thank you in advance!
Neopopulas: I've looked at so many of these and i'm always terrified i'm going to
scratch or scuff the plastic backing or the glass front..
LaptopScreen.com: It's Mah puddy knife
Hamza Makani: Easy
Ano Nymos: How many degrees heat are perfect (hot air soldering station)?
tony huynh: what a total ripoff of the video first posted by Lord of The Phones. I
don't know about using that metal tool. It looks like it'll scratch the
side of the tablet.
David Nuno: I broke the lcs trying to change the digitizer. I suck.
TNT4368: The Touch Screen Digitizer is the same for GT-P7500 and GT-P5113 models?????
LaptopScreen.com: The principals described in this video will help with any electronics
device which uses glue and screws. No epoxy dissolver needed (yet)
Kailey Bowser: this is the P7500 right? I have a P7510 and need to replace my screen.. is
it pretty much the same?
Alexandra Cronje: I the LCD screen needs replacing do you just remove it from the front or do
you have to disassemble the back and remove it form the back? Thanks!
emacsdisciple: Great guide. But I had a problem with the motherboard connector. These flex
connectors are of a type I have not seen before. There's a "lever" running
the length of the connector, at the rear. To remove the cable, the lever
must be lifted, and to secure it, the lever must be pushed down. On my Tab,
the lever came away from the connector and I could not refit it; in fact it
broke during my attempts, and I've not found a fix yet. So anyone
attempting this should be very careful with this part.
Antonio José: That makes two srsrsr
Rosary House: thank you
skhamis6565: can a crack go all the to the LCD & if the screen gets cracked how i knoe
the diffirence & is it all one piece? that video was great!
smithgabrielle: I cracked d screen for my friends galaxy tab 2 ...do I have to hat a new
one or can it b fixed
immabest1: is this the same for the samsung tab 2 10.1?
Fortunatone: Also a tri-wing screwdriver to remove the screws before you start!
LaptopScreen.com: It will be similar - open her up, pry off the digitizer, replace, close her
Hans Dijkman: thnx
Andrea Rigobello: really useful!!! thanks a lot!
goodmood555: Thanks so much
LaptopScreen.com: Guitar picks and plastic pry tools can help if using metal tools with
precision and care is not your forte.
Alfie Kojder: puddy knife
Tomi Owoeye: Thank you very much I called the Samsung people to see if they could help
me, they could but I would hav to pay. I was about to go all the way to
where I bought it to see if they could help me, but i stumbled upon this
video. Didnt know it was that simple. I repaired this crap by myself
without having to pay anything. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
lee chaofan: you could at least use a plastic pry tool never the less a good tutorial. :)
KingAndrew5000: thanks. this helped fix my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 .. it was a bit different from
your vid, but still helped get it fixed perfectly. let me know if you want
to know the differences between the two of need any advice.
LaptopScreen.com: Plastic pry tools are great when exterior damage can be caused. In this
case we are separating some heavy duty glue, plastic tools would struggle
to perform. As well, depending on experience, and pure dexterity, a metal
putty knife can be used in-plkace of plastic tools for a quicker repair and
virtually no damage to the device, if used properly. After years of using
this one metal putty knife we feel it has proved to be the most efficient.
Although you do have to be a bit of a ninja ;)
Eduardo Lima: Thanks a lot. you make me save 500 bucks . Hugs from brazil
LaptopScreen.com: To be a rip off, the maker of the video would have to have SEEN the
original. As the maker of this video, I have not seen the video you refer
to or any Samsung Tab video before filming this ;)
NYC ToSA: How can anyone thumb this down?
TGtheJester: If I'm replacing my LCD /AND/ digitizer, do I need to do the heat gun
separation of them?
