Inleiding

Follow this guide to replace the screen assembly for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. The display glass, OLED panel, and digitizer comprise the screen assembly and will need to be replaced together.

Note: Some replacement screens for this phone come pre-installed in a new frame (a.k.a. chassis), which requires you to transplant all of your phone's internals and install a new battery. Make sure you have the correct part before starting this guide.

There is a significant chance that you may break the unreinforced and fragile display panel during this procedure. If you plan on reusing the screen assembly, be sure to apply plenty of heat and be extremely careful during the prying stage.

You'll need replacement adhesive in order to complete this repair.

  1. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Heat the bottom edge: stap 1, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Unplug and power off your phone before you begin.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the back cover's bottom edge for two minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  2. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the bottom edge adhesive: stap 2, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the bottom edge adhesive: stap 2, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the bottom edge adhesive: stap 2, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close to the center of the bottom edge as possible.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken glass.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this may take multiple attempts of reheating with the iOpener and separating with the suction cup before you get it right.

    • If you are having trouble creating a gap, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

    • Do not apply excessive force with the pick, or you risk cracking the back cover glass.

  3. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 3, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 3, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 3, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Slide the pick back and forth along the bottom edge to slice through the adhesive.

    • Do not attempt to cut the adhesive near the corners of the phone where the glass is curved or you risk cracking the glass panel.

    • Leave your opening pick in the seam to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  4. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Heat the left edge: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the left edge of the back cover for two minutes.

  5. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the left edge adhesive: stap 5, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the left edge adhesive: stap 5, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the left edge adhesive: stap 5, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close to the center of the left edge as possible.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • As the glass on this edge is curved, you won't be able to insert this pick very far. As long as the very tip of the pick is underneath the glass's edge, you will be able to proceed.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this may take multiple attempts.

    • If you are having trouble creating a gap, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

    • You can try also applying a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol into the seam to help loosen the adhesive.

    • Do not apply excessive force with the pick, or you risk cracking the back cover glass.

  6. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 6, afbeelding 1 van 2 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 6, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Once the pick is underneath the glass's edge, tilt it downward and insert it further to fully separate the back cover's adhesive.

  7. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 7, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 7, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 7, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Slide the pick all along the left edge of the phone to separate the back cover's adhesive.

    • Take care when sliding across the ridge in the frame surrounding the volume and power buttons—the cutout in the glass may make it more prone to cracking.

    • Leave your pick under the left edge of the glass to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  8. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Heat the right edge: stap 8, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the right edge of the back cover for two minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  9. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the right edge adhesive: stap 9, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the right edge adhesive: stap 9, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the right edge adhesive: stap 9, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close to the center of the right edge as possible.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Like with the previous edge, you will need to tilt the opening pick downward to fully insert it underneath the back cover.

  10. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Slide the pick all along the right edge of the phone to separate the back cover's adhesive.

    • Leave your pick under the right edge of the glass near the top of the device to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • As you do this, the back cover may release one or both of the other picks and allow them to fall free. If this occurs, set the pick(s) aside as the bottom edge shouldn't reseal from this point onward.

  11. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Heat the top edge: stap 11, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the top edge of the back cover for two minutes.

  12. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the top edge adhesive: stap 12, afbeelding 1 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the top edge adhesive: stap 12, afbeelding 2 van 3 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the top edge adhesive: stap 12, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • The glass near the corners of the back cover is curved and very susceptible to cracking. Be gentle during this step to prevent damaging your back cover.

    • Gradually slide the pick from the right edge of the device around the top right corner.

    • Continue slicing along the top edge all the way around to the left edge to fully separate the back cover adhesive.

    • If the slicing becomes difficult at any point, stop and reapply heat before continuing.

  13. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Remove the back cover: stap 13, afbeelding 1 van 2 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Remove the back cover: stap 13, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Lift the back cover slowly. Use opening picks to slice any remaining adhesive.

    • Remove the back cover.

    • During reassembly:

    • This is a good point to power on your phone and test all functions before sealing it up. Be sure to power your phone back down completely before you continue working.

    • Remove any adhesive chunks with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. Apply heat if you're having trouble separating the adhesive.

    • If you're using Samsung custom-cut adhesives, follow this guide.

    • If you're using double-sided tape, follow this guide.

    • Use a Phillips #00 screwdriver to remove the six 4 mm-long screws securing the motherboard bracket.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from.

  14.

    • Use a spudger to pry up and disconnect the display cable.

  22. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Adhesive tip: stap 23, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • In the next several steps, you will heat and separate the black adhesive around the perimeter of the device.

    • The adhesive surrounding the long edges of the device is thin and will only require you to insert the pick 5 mm to separate.

    • Note that along the top edge of the phone, the adhesive runs significantly farther from the device's edge. You will need to insert your pick deeper here to fully seperate the adhesive.

  23. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement, Separate the perimeter adhesive: stap 24, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the top edge of the display for two minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

    • Apply a suction cup to the display glass, as close to the center of the top edge as possible.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the display glass and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap in the center of the earpiece speaker notch, working it downwards underneath the display.

    • Ensure the pick slides over the front-facing camera and is not pushing against it.

    • Due to the stubborn adhesive, this may take multiple attempts of reheating with the iOpener and separating with the suction cup before you get it right.

    • If you are having trouble creating a gap, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

    • Leave your pick in the seam to prevent the adhesive from reasealing.

  25. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 26, afbeelding 1 van 2 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Screen Replacement: stap 26, afbeelding 2 van 2

Thank you for the step by step guide. Where did you get the repair screen from? Are these screens OEM? Thank you in advance!

Greivin Vega - Antwoord

Does anyone have any suggestions on reinstalling the screen and back cover? I do not see pre-cut adhesive for either. I have a tube of T-7000. Is that appropriate for this type of reassembly? I have only used pre cut adhesive for repairs up to this point.
