Introduction

If your home button is sticking, or not working you may need to replace it.

  1. Working on your device while it is turned on may result in an electric shock. Be sure to shut down and unplug your device before you begin.
    • Working on your device while it is turned on may result in an electric shock. Be sure to shut down and unplug your device before you begin.

    • Removing the screen may be difficult due to strong adhesives.

    • Apply heat to all the seams of the device using an iFixit iOpener or heat gun in order to loosen the adhesive around the edges of the screen.

    m.E. wichtig vorher die Kartenhalter für SIM und SD entfernen, sonst löst sich der Kontakt unkontrolliert bei Schritt 6.

    You make no mention of re-Glueing the screen, just applying the steps in reverse order - does that mean simply applying heat again will re-glue the components from the residue?

    i replaced the battery, the sticky tape did hold up again, but if you replace the screen it depends on whate side the tape sticks to. On ine the most part of the tape stuck to the screen.

  2. Insert the plastic opening tool into the gap on the side of the tablet, near a corner where you want to start removing the screen. Place the small suction cup on the screen near the corner that the plastic opening tool is placed.
    • Insert the plastic opening tool into the gap on the side of the tablet, near a corner where you want to start removing the screen.

    • Place the small suction cup on the screen near the corner that the plastic opening tool is placed.

    • Lift the small suction cup up while pushing down with the plastic opening tool to remove screen (you may need to have someone else hold the device down for proper leverage).

    • A ribbon cable is attached to the back of the screen. Avoid lifting or moving the screen more than 3-4 inches before disconnecting the ribbon cable or you could damage the device.

    The lower portion of the screen is glued to the body. The screen is unable to be completely removed.

    starte oben, unten verhindert eine Nase an dem Audioanschluß das erste anheben.

    start upside, downside a nose at the audio connector prevents the first lifting.

    Hi. My SM T 815 (Tab 2) flickers and switches off. The screen is still fine. Well atleast it looks fine. But it doesn’t switch on. Could it be the reflex cable? Why is it doing this? And how can it be solved?

    -Zuvor unbedingt SIM Karte u microSD entfernen, sonst bleibt der Elekronikpart am Gehäuse fest und das Flachbandkabel davon kann beschädigt werden!

    -Lösen des unteren Teils des Innengehäuses zum Schluss, da Ladebuchse eine Nase hat und sich erst löst wenn man es schräg nach unten abhebt.

    I had an issue with charging of Tab S2. When you connect it to a charger, it detects it, charges for 2 seconds, stops charging for 7-8 seconds and charges again for 2 seconds. It keeps going on in circles. It actually did charge to 100%, but it could take a whole day. I watched some videos online and there’s a way to get to it from behind. I got myself tools and a new battery, thinking it could be a battery problem. Long story short, there are flat cables reaching behind from volume buttons glued to the back cover and they use pressure from the back cover to make contact. Of course, I broke the flat cable. Most of the back cover is held in place by clips, but right next to the round metal looking “buttons” there is some extra strong glue (north of those “buttons”). Samsung didn’t want to make repairs easy and simple :/.

  8. Use a plastic opening tool to lift the black flap on the ZIF connector located in the top left corner of the device.
    • Use a plastic opening tool to lift the black flap on the ZIF connector located in the top left corner of the device.

    • Once the connector is unlocked, pull the ribbon cable out with tweezers.

    • This cable does not need to be completely removed, only one side is enough to allow the battery to be taken out.

    I did not find it necessary to detach this cable. The battery slid out from under it easily.

    I was proud of myself. It was for me as easy as this, videos online showed more difficulty . The suction cup and the jimmy was enough to open the screen. Do watch some videos online to see all the parts you could damage and on how to open the different cable connectors as they are and work different.

Nice writeup, but I can't seem to find where to buy the home button. Anyone know?
