How can I remove the back cover of my tablet?

Taking off the back cover of your tablet can sometimes be a difficult task, especially if you’ve never tried to do so before or are unsure how. The great thing about tablets however is that most of the time they can be taken apart with relative ease.

The first thing that you have to do is check the manufacturer’s user guide for instructions on how to remove your tablet’s back cover. There are different ways of opening a tablet which is as follows:

1. Starting from the top, place your nails between the back cover and the tablet. Try to peel off a small section of it at first. Be careful not to break any other component while you do this.

2. If you have managed to remove a small part of the back cover successfully, move on and do it again in other parts of the tablet. Keep on doing this until you have completely removed the cover from the main device.

3. If you have a tool kit, use the razor blade to cut through the tape at the top of the tablet. Remove the two screws on both sides. Apply heat to the back of your Tablet with your heat gun at medium temperature (you can also use a blow dryer) and slide the plastic pry tool between the two panels to separate them.

4. Once the back cover is removed, you will be able to access and remove the battery. If your model has a SIM card that sits inside of the battery, use your SIM card remover tool to remove the card.

5. Once you’ve successfully removed the back cover of your tablet, carefully place it somewhere you can remember. This is something you will need to put back on after. Next, locate the battery door on the side of the tablet. The back of the battery is usually labeled with a “+” and “-” sign.

6. If your Tab model has a screw beneath the charging port, use a plastic pry tool to remove the screw covers and then use a tri-wing screwdriver to remove the screws. Use the plastic pry tool to carefully remove the back cover from the unit. If your Tab model has a single screw in the center of the charging port, use a tri-wing screwdriver to remove the screw and then use the plastic pry tool to remove the back cover.

7. Now that you’ve taken your back off, it’s time to install your new battery. To do this, just place the new battery in its slot and use your fingers to press down firmly on it. Make sure it’s in right, then replace the back cover. You can now use your tablet again as before.

8. You should test your tablet actively by pressing buttons on it, moving the memory card slot and checking to see if everything is working properly. If you feel that the battery is not charging as fast as it used to, change its battery first with a replacement battery recommended by your manufacturer. Once you have tried this, you should see an improvement in the battery charging speeds.

9. If the tablet is still not working properly even after you have done all of these things, it is a good idea to get assistance from a technician who knows about tablets. He or she will diagnose your device and repair any damage that may be causing the trouble.

Note:

Never attempt to remove the back cover when your tablet is wet, dropping in water, or overheated. The battery inside your tablet could have exploded and this could cause the chemicals to burn your skin.

Also never use anything sharp or metal to pry your tablet open. This could damage internal components and void your warranty.
