Inleiding

Use this guide to replace a broken or cracked display of your Samsung Galaxy A5.

  1. Switch off your phone. If your screen is cracked you want to cover the front panel with tape to protect yourself from glass shards and get a better grip to lift it. Use an iOpener to soften the glue on the edge of the display. Concentrate on the sides first and then on the bottom part.

    • With an iSclack or a suction handle you can lift the display a little bit to get in the gap with an opening pick.

    • The phone screen is composed of two layers (glass and display). Ensure that you are removing both layers and not splitting the two layers.

    • In the beginning just insert the tip of the opening pick and slide along the side to loosen the glue. Leave the top and bottom alone for now.

  2. When the glue is loosened enough on the side you can lift the display a little bit more to get underneath the display with an opening pick. Take a second opening pick and work your way around the bottom edge. The software buttons in the lower left and right corners of the screen have ribbon cables that are glued to the display. Be very careful that your pick cuts between the screen and buttons and does not cut these wires.

  4. Grab the iOpener once again to heat up the bottom and top part to further soften the glue. Now you will be able to move the picks at the bottom closer to the home button and eventually open the display towards the top. Don't open the display all the way. It is still connected to the motherboard.
