This guide will teach you how to replace a nonfunctional battery in your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition.

    • Using the nylon spudger or plastic opening tool along the edges of the screen, separate the back case off of the device.

    • If possible, consider using the black nylon spudger for a gentler separation.

    Remove stylus before you remove. There’s a nubbin on the main board that may dislodge it stylus is in place. it is easily reinserted, but easy hassle to avoid.

    It’s worth mentioning that there is a part of the device casing, accessible from the back, that can be removed but has very fragile retaining clips. Although the picture does show that the prying tool is lifting the screen, it is hard to see. You will not be able to access the charge port by removing a portion of the casing. You must remove the case from the screen side.

    Be careful!!!

    the first picture of this first step and the instructions are misleading. What you need to remove is the back cover of the tablet. Use the opening tool along the edges of the back cover, NOT on the screen as the picture and the instructions say.

    Its not misleading. You need to remove from the front as removing from the back you will tear the grey clipping from the glued back piece. You will not be able to replace the charge port from removing just the back either as you should be doing both.

    I agree this first step should be revised and include a warning.

    My battery was swollen and the screen was separating from the case (big gap along edge).

    Purchased new battery. Have spudger. Have done phone battery replacements before without issue.

    I tried to do the separation but apparently was between the screen assembly and the back electronics rather than separating the entire electronics from the back casing.

    The screen glass “exploded”…I’ll be finding glass particles in my office for the next few years I think. In addition, not realizing why things weren’t working I figured I would have to replace the screen anyway and continued on only to discover that a bunch of ribbon cables were destroyed during separation.

    Given this process is listed as “EASY” there really should be some clear warnings about making sure the spudger doesn’t end up between the screen assembly and back electonics but rather ends up between the back case. The angle of the spudger in the photo doesn’t make this obvious.

    What a waste.

  1. Place your finger on the thin black bar at the end of the ribbon tape and flip each one up.
    • Place your finger on the thin black bar at the end of the ribbon tape and flip each one up.

    • Gently pull the ribbon tape on the battery away from the bar. Repeat this process for the second ribbon tape.

    I would recommend disconnecting the battery at this stage in the process, as the connector can be lifted without disconnecting the cables. It’s generally best practice to disconnect the battery before disconnecting any other cables.

    After disconnecting old battery, press and hold the on/off switch for about 20 seconds before connecting- new battery. This will reset the charging system in the tablet and allow your new battery charge properly .

  2. Remove the six 3mm screws around the battery with the Phillips PH000 screwdriver.

    This step seems unnecessary, as the battery connector can be disconnected without lifting the battery. If you struggle to lift the connector, you could follow this step to get better leverage.

    • Lift up the battery from the bottom and situate the black nylon spudger underneath the battery.

    • Use the black nylon spudger to disconnect the multi-colored wires from the rest of the device.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Step 1 you have to show the back cover to remove. Showing the front side is confusing.

After step 4 there should be a step 5 to show how to disconnect the white connector with the colored wires: it took time to discover that you have to lift the 2 side clips, and not to pull…

Just followed your instructions. Used a online kit with a guitar pick-like spudger. Had to wrestle with it slightly, but everything worked out perfectly to your instructions.

Followed the instructions. Worked nearly perfectly. The last step is a bit tricky. Just look at the new battery to understand the system.

Something I won’t be doing again. It was very annoying to do and nerve racking to complete. Was a pain to snap back together.
