Samsung Galaxy Tablet 3 touchscreen replacement 

Though not the easiest of repairs, armed with the correct knowledge and the correct tools, you should be able to replace your broken Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 screen yourself. Below, you'll find easy to follow, step by step instructions that will guide you through the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 screen replacement process. 

How to replace a Samsung Galaxy Tab touchscreen 

Step one

Firstly, turn off, (and unplug,) your device. You should also make sure that you have backed up all of your data. Next, use a flat edged tool, (a plectrum or razor,) to separate the front of the tablet from the back. Work your way around each side of the tablet, using the tool to ease the back casing away from the front. Note: the front and back of the tablet are held together using a number of plastic clips which snap in and out of place. Take care when separating the two. 

Step two 

Disconnect the cable that runs towards the tablet battery. 

Step three 

Unscrew the screws, (four in total,) used to hold the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 battery in place. 

Step four 

Remove the battery from your device and, set it safely aside. 

Step five 

Turn the device over and apply heat, (using a hairdryer or a professional heat gun,) to each edge of the broken touchscreen, (so as to loosen the adhesive holding it in place.) Use a flat edged implement to prise the broken touchscreen away from the rest of the device. 

Step six 

Disconnect the cable that connects the screen to the tablet. Note: set the front (or home) button safely aside. 

Step seven 

To fit your replacement Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 touchscreen, remove all packaging, replace the home button and sit the touchscreen on the LCD screen. To complete your repair, simply follow the rest of the instructions, (outlined above,) in reverse order.
