Hi,Thanks for the insight.I have these questions:1) Did you remove the 4 screws before hand? The video does not show the removal of the 4 screws...2) When you bend the upper plastic foil, to remove the screws, will that leave a visible mark on the foil?3) Where you able to put everything back together? Did the Flytouch still work afterwards?4) The did disassembly leave any noticable marks?The reason I am asking: I would like to consider how much effort and risk is involved in replacing the main battery and/or the backup battery.Cheers,vma
Macko: Ok, i will do. but my (spoken) english is not that good Vma: 1) first time i dismounted the epad, i did not know there were 4 screws under plastic foil, so i *broke* them. Now the epad is closed in place, only because there are clips all around the border. I discovered there was a plastic foil over the screen, only when i completely disassembled it.2) The palstic foil is flexible, so there are no visible marks on the foil; so trasparency is not compromised, and you look the screen clearly. But there are *very big* marks all around the border, where i used a screwdriver to raise the whole thing.3) I was able to remount it, except for the 4 screws on the 4 corners, that are broken. The tablet works as usual: sloOOow like turtle!
Thanks CopaCabanaMan!Just a tip: if you have an old smartcard or credit card, use that to open electronic gear without leaving marks! Cheaper than buying a plettro and works just the same.The problem with using a knife, cutter or screw driver to open plastic cases (remotes, laptops, phones, etc.) is that they use steel and thus are harder than plastic and obviously leave marks.Use a smartcard/credit card and it will not mark the case, as it is softer than plastic.Cheers,vma
Vma: thank you very grazie for the tip; the next tablet i'll break, i'll use your method Macko: i did the english version. just check teh first post.ev'rybody, go to beach and enjoy girls, non tablets!
Enotar, look: thre are two skins over the screen: first one is the classic film that is on every mobile telephone screen, to prevent any scratches; you must remove it.Second one is the plastic foil i show in beginning of my video; you must leave it in place.First film is very hard to notice, as it covers all front plate. If you dont remove it, you have very poor response from touch-screen.Try, and let me know
Im interested in trying to swap out the battery in it which takes EONS to charge and seconds to kill, with a high quality battery as large as i can fit into it.Im sure its some noname chinese ripoff battery anyway, and man do they ever get hot durring charging...
Ok No plastic film for me just the foil but trying to lift it up to find the screwa let marks on it even with a card.It looks the back paint or glue come out and you cxannot do aything afterwards.I am a little preocupied to lift up all 4 corners, that will be ugly when setting back.
