KeyBoard DisassemblingHeat the 5mm adhesive surface to 6070°C all the way around for about ten minutes.
Place suction cups in the position shown in the photo and slowly lift up the secondary display TP. Once there is a gap, insert the piece for disassembly to 5mm. Do this on all four sides to open it up, and then lift up the secondary display.
Remove the black Mylar. Use tweezers to disconnect the KeyBoard assembly and the main board connected to the FPC interface. Gently pull the FPC, so the main board and the KeyBoard assembly are completely separated.
Note:
1. The power key’s FPC can be easily broken in disassembly.
2. When open, the right side of the motor and the EMR are bonded together. Be careful not to break the motor’s lead wire.
3. The KeyBoard assembly’s FPC connector is located on the top left side. Remember that slow disassembly is required so as not to damage the FPC.
How to replace the Battery
Use a screwdriver to remove the black screws from the battery’s silver sheeting, then remove the sheeting.
Use tweezers to open the interface between the battery FPC and the main board.
Use a blade to pry open the black cover on either side of the battery, and remove the covers.
After the covers are completely separated, you will see four pieces of blue adhesive. Pull out the four pieces of adhesive, and gently remove the battery.
