Gebruik deze handleiding om de batterij van je Samsung Galaxy S6 te vervangen.

Ontlaad de batterij van je telefoon, voor je eigen veiligheid, tot onder de 25%. Een geladen lithium-ion batterij kan in brand vliegen en/of ontploffen als deze per ongeluk wordt doorboord of anderszins beschadigd.

Neem, als je batterij gezwollen is, de juiste voorzorgsmaatregelen. Verwarm je telefoon in dat geval ook absoluut niet. Indien nodig kun je een druppelaar of een spuit gebruiken om wat isopropyl alcohol (>90%) langs de kanten van de achterste behuizing toedienen om de lijm te verzwakken. Gezwollen batterijen kunnen erg gevaarlijk zijn, dus zorg dat je te allen tijde oogbescherming draagt en voorzichtig werkt. Breng je toestel, als je niet zeker bent van je zaak, naar een professional.

Deze handleiding omvat ook het verwijderen van de glazen achterkant. Het verwijderen van de glazen achterkant betekent ook dat je de lijm die het op z'n plek houdt moet verwijderen. Gebruik deze handleiding om de glazen achterkant weer te installeren.

    • Steek een paperclip of een SIM-uitwerptool in het kleine gat in de SIM-kaarthouder. Deze kun je vinden aan de kant waar ook de aan-/uitknop zich bevindt.

    • Druk je tool naar binnen om de SIM-kaart uit te werpen.

    • Druk niet te hard, aangezien je in dat geval riskeert de SIM-kaarthouder te beschadigen.

    It really needs to be stated at the outset that if doing this repair to replace the daughterboard, there is a high likelihood that the display will be destroyed (even if you don’t break the display, the foil backing on it will likely be destroyed rendering it unusable). The PDF version of this guide states this at the beginning, but this online version does not.

    • We raden je aan je magnetron schoon te maken voordat je verdergaat, zodat je voorkomt dat er viezigheid op je iOpener komt en eraan blijft hangen.

    • Plaats de iOpener in het midden van de magnetron.

    • Voor carousel-magnetrons: zorg dat de schijf vrij kan draaien. Als je iOpener klem komt te zitten, kan deze oververhit raken en verbranden.

    I didn't find this to be as hard as I had built it up in my mind to be; HOWEVER, saying that I need to say years ago I was the local Nokia service center in my town. But many years ago right after they got rid of analog times. Yeah. A classic installer/repairer mistake when starting something they haven't fixed or installed before is picking up the instructions, flipping through them; maybe even reading a section that is new-then tossing the instructions over the shoulder. "I got this." This usually comes right before something major gets broke. And I can tell you when you try to do it yourself and then mess it up horribly then take it to the repair shop. Well we called that "I can do it myself" syndrome and charged extra to put back together what they brought in in the box. Now knowing all this - I can't stress this enough because I am stupid, stupid, stupid. COVER YOUR SCREEN IN CLEAR BOXING TAPE AND READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION BELOW THROUGH TO THE END BEFORE EVEN ATTEMPTING THIS FIX. Take my advise.

    I didn't have an iOpener, so I used a wheat type heat bag. If you do this though, make sure you put a layer of plastic between your Mac and the bag, or you'll get condensation in places you don't want it.

    Martin Gray - Antwoord

    I started out using the iOpener but switched to my wife's hairdryer. A heat gun or hair dryer proved to be much more convenient and is a time saviour. You can heat more and the glue becomes more fluid make the next steps with the opening picks much easier

    I know this is obvious, but backup your iPad with iTunes before you start. I'd also turn off your passcode if you have one.

    Laurie Higgins - Antwoord

    Ther first time you heat up the iOpener for this repair when its room temperature I had to heat it up for more than 30 seconds. I remember I had to heat it up for around 45 seconds. However, after that when you need to reheat it again during the repair 30 seconds will be enough.

    Yousef Ghalib - Antwoord

    I used the wheat bag in a sensor microwave heating up to 65-70 deg C (155 def F).

    Get yourself a cherry pit bean bag the size of your iPad. Heat it, put the iPad on it for 3 to 5 minutes or so, reheat the cherry pit bean bag, again put your iPad on it. Then heat the iOpener and start working. The cherry pit bean bag will have to be reheated several times, but it will soften the adhesive so you have less problems with the iOpener

    Tim Feyaerts - Antwoord

    The heating can be done very effectively (and quickly) with 3d printer heated bed. Make sure the bed is clean. Set the temperature to 60c, (130f ) and put the ipad face down for +/- 10 minutes. Repeat as needed throughout the “gentle prying” stages.

    polleyphony - Antwoord

    The iOpener did not work at all for me.

    I had to use a heat gun and bring the edges of the case up to ~200 degrees (used an infrared thermometer to measure) before the glue would weaken. This obviously superheated the metal frame, so I also had to wear gloves to handle the phone while prying the back off with the included picks.

    Mike Jeanette - Antwoord

    Repair instructions worked like a charm. Had to be patient with the iOpener and getting the screen off. I tried repeatedly without success until shifting the suction cup a bit to the left side where perhaps the glue had loosened up a bit more.

    Kyle - Antwoord

    The iOpener, in my opinion, is of no help. Many warnings to say “don’t warm it too much”, but the glue doesn’t melt if not warm enough. As a result, a complete waste of time and energy. In addition, too much liquid in it, so it doesn’t lay on the device on a sufficient surface. I took a hairdryer and it worked much much better.

    laurentvidu - Antwoord

    I used an immersion bath to heat this to 180F and applied it to the device until the outside temperature of the opener read 150F with an IR thermometer. Removing the screen took very little force with this method.

    breadandbits - Antwoord

    My experience. I was replacing the screen which had been cracked and a little shattered in some places. The iopener is pretty much useless, so was the suction cup. The suction cup would probably be more useful if I was doing something besides the screen. Also you probably want the clean the screen before using it so it can get good suction. I used a hair dryer on high for a couple of minutes at a time (someone on this tread suggested that). I used my exacto knife and a razor blade to get into the adhesive. First the exacto to get the initial cut, then the razor blade to go a little deeper. Could have probably just used the razor blade, but the exacto has a little more finesse. I got the razor blade in and a little under the glass then I used the picks to wedge in. I didn’t want to risk anything using the razor blade too much. Used tape to keep the shattered glass together.

    trebor65 - Antwoord

    My experience pt2

    Fortunately the shattering was mostly on the edges and most of it had adhesive on the back so it stuck together. Just take your time and work your way around following the guide to get the screen off. Have some goof off or goo be gone to clean the frame when putting the new glass on or putting the existing one back. (someone suggested that also, very good idea). Be careful of the LCD (you should know that). The cable on my LCD was pretty tight, so I propped it up while taking the cable cover off and when I put it back on I did the same thing. I just put a bottle on the battery and leaned the back of the LCD on that while attaching the cables and putting the screws back on the cover. Also be careful with the home button and the bracket on the back of it. I had enough old adhesive on left on the bracket that it stuck back to the new glass fine. So far only 12 hours in, so we will see how that holds up when the kids get at it.

    trebor65 - Antwoord

    Another alternative if you do not have the iopener is to use a bed time hotwater bottle. Do not over fill it though. Just put enough hot water in to support the phone while you work around the adhesive.

    I use both the hot water bottle and iopener together on Samsung's. It makes life easier

    gazza667 - Antwoord

    I followed the directions and heated my iOpener for 30 seconds in a 1000 watt microwave, and it came out at 160 degrees F, as verified by a infrared thermometer. This allowed me to separate the last bit of the back of my Samsung S8, which was already coming off due to a swollen battery (hence the reason for the repair).

    Manu R - Antwoord

    If you follow these instructions, you will crack your screen like I did. Heating the iOpener for 30 seconds, using it to melt glue, then waiting 10 minutes to reheat is useless. The iOpener can be used to maybe warm the glue on whatever side you aren’t working on. You need a hairdryer and/or a heat gun to melt the glue and separate the glass from the iPad.

    Anyone want to buy an old iPad with broken glass and a dead battery?

    mpulliam - Antwoord

    Not everybody has a microwave. You should provide a target temperature for the iOpener and instructions for a conventional oven, or pot of warm water, or whatever. Although I will probably use a heat gun …

    Esmond Pitt - Antwoord

    Three times heating opener and no luck. Tried pressing down gently on opener with a towel, and the opener broke. Wondering if I now replace table mats, fancy table cloth, etc. or will this stuff wash out.

    Not impressed so far. Maybe the hair dryer next.

    doug - Antwoord

    I support the comments about the iOpener. Everyone has a hair drier, FHS, so get a cheap IR thermometer (£18) and blow heat until the area is 60+ deg C. Still takes w while, and getting the screen off is v scary, but just add more heat if you feel resistance.

    The rest of the kit is good, esp the magnetic screwdrivers.

    Richard O'Brien - Antwoord

    No, everyone does not have a hairdryer. Some of us don’t even have hair. Thank goodness I already had an IR thermometer, though.

    I could not get the iOpener hot enough to melt the glue on my ipad 6. I heated for 45 seconds once and it was boiling and it still never worked. Thank goodness contributors mentioned using a hair dryer. Using an 1700w hair dryer on high did the trick to get the screen off. Still took some time and the case got pretty hot but be patient. It took twice as long and a lot more patience to get the battery out.

    The metal microwave rack can heat up and melt through the iOpener cover letting the contents leak out.

    Not a big issue for me as I have a heat gun and used that instead.

    Run Up A Tree - Antwoord

    I opened my iPad with the iOpener. Be patient! It may take quite a bit longer to it the iOpener in the microwave than it says in the guide. My microwave can only do 800W and I had to put the iOpener in several times (maybe a total of 90-120 seconds). I recommend that you have the transparent side up an watch the bag carefully. As long a the bag doesn't bloat up and the liquid doesn't start bubbling you should be fine. But I recommend to take the iO out from time to time to check it. (More comments in Step 6.)

    • Verwarm de iOpener gedurende dertig seconden.

    • Tijdens de reparatieprocedure, en terwijl de iOpener afkoelt, kun je deze opnieuw verwarmen in fases van dertig seconden.

    • Let erop dat je de iOpener niet oververhit tijdens de reparatie. Oververhitting kan ervoor zorgen dat de iOpener barst.

    • Raak de iOpener nooit aan als deze gezwollen is.

    • Als de iOpener in het midden nog steeds te heet is om aan te raken, kun je het nog steeds gebruiken, maar moet je wachten tot deze iets is afgekoeld voordat je deze opnieuw opwarmt. Een goed opgewarmde iOpener zou ongeveer 10 minuten warm moeten blijven.

    I had to heat mine up for more than 30 seconds. After 30 seconds on high it was only warm. It had to keep trying different times and checking it until it got hot. I think the initial time that I put it in for was over a minute.

    whale13 - Antwoord

    DO NOT USE IN NON ROTATING MICROWAVE! It will pop a hole. I had it in for 45 seconds the first time. It wasn't very hot inside and I saw it started to leak on the paper towel I put under it. Just a fair bit of advice. I think I will just stick with the heat gun. Loud but useful.

    Alex Jackson - Antwoord

    I heated mine up for 30 seconds, tested, then again for 30 seconds. It felt adequately hot. Leaving it on the left side, per the instruction, for a minute did not loosen the adhesive. I ended up pulling the suction cup hard enough to shadder the old screen. Moral of the story, I don't think it gets hot enough safely to have an affect.

    Travis Dixon - Antwoord

    There is a clear problem here with the heating part using the iopener details are given. Whoever is testing them needs to make it clear - What temperature does it need to be? And for which phone models, because they differ in what's needed. It's only £10-15 for a laser guided temp sensor unit, and the designers/repairers should have one of those already for doing these kinds of repairs. Explaining half a repair, is worse than not explaining at all :-(

    assortedrubbish - Antwoord

    All phones/devices differ it’s unrealistic and unsafe to put a exact time/temperature needed to soften the adhesive. It’s really quite simple you warm the device evenly and in a controlled manner just enough to enable pry tools and picks to begin separating. Best tool in my opinion but again this is because I have experience is a hot plate and heat gun both of which are used at nearly the lowest settings and I can handle flat palming the plate for almost 10 seconds I leave the device to conduct heat until approx it’s about 110 at most 120 ish this will be plenty to soften all the adhesive if any problem areas I use heat gun while prying. Again you need go slowly and learn with a throw away phone

    30 seconds sure isn’t cutting it… 45 didn’t get the screen of my iPad air 2 to budge either… even after resting on the ipad for 4 minutes.

    60 seconds in the microwave, the iOpener burst.

    I’ll get a new one and try once more with heating it 45 seconds and repeat that for 30 minutes like others have said here. If that doesn’t work it’ll have to be the heat gun.


    Karl Marble - Antwoord

    I can’t recommend the microwave. If the the iOpener becomes too hot, it bursts. Better put the opener in cooking water. Dry it and use it. Instead of an iOpener you can use hot/cool packs as well.

    Bernhard Keim - Antwoord

    Great idea with using the heat packs. I will try that next time. Thank you

    Collins -

    Trust the directions! I forgot and left it in the Microwave too long and after 1 minute I had Mt Vesuvius - the iOpener burst and spewed the goodies out. The problem is, the Digitizer can be damaged by a hot air gun, so I had to tough out and remove the glue the hard way. I made it … with lots of patience! Tough lesson.

    Larry Bennett - Antwoord

    I also used a hairdryer. I used it on the low setting and I cut a piece of carboard to protect the rest of the screen. The iFixit tool and method is vert tedious and very time consuming in comparison. With the hairdryer method you can literally have the display apart in a few minutes. Using your other hand nearby the area you are heating it should be very hot but not enough to burn your hand. You only have to heat metal part of case near glass edge. If you have a cellular model then you need to be very careful because the black antenna area is plastic. So less heat and work your way up in adding heat just enough to separate around the area but not so much you melt the plastic!

    Fixrights - Antwoord

    iOpener was the worst part of the kit. Followed directions for :30 in microwave and took 4 trips to the microwave to loosen adhesive on left side of home button. I thought I was figuring it out and it was working well… even set a timer to wait 10 minutes between heating it up. Was on the right side and was on my 12th heat up when it exploded in the microwave. My only tip is that if you set it clear side up, as soon as you see any bubbles or boiling in the liquid, STOP! If you put a pot holder over the iOpener and press slightly to make good surface contact, that seemed to help. I finished heating with a “Corn Sack” that held heat better than the provided iOpener.

    I followed the directions and heated my iOpener for 30 seconds in a 1000 watt microwave, and it came out at 160 degrees F, as verified by a infrared thermometer. A second heating about 15 minutes later in the micro and it came out at 190 degrees F. Plenty hot enough to soften the adhesive for removing the back on my S8. Based on the comments above I think people just need to use more patience.

    Dennis - Antwoord

    I used various time settings. It got very hot. It would soften the glue but not a whole lot. If my screen had been intact and I was replacing something that was not a digitizer, it may have worked. A broken screen makes the process significantly more difficult. I ended up breaking the home button cable. Good bye TouchID…

    After reading previous comments I didn't even use the i-opener. Used the heatgun ( hairdryer ) which works great for me. Maybe I was lucky as this is my first attempt at replacing a cellphone battery. Motoz 3

    Collins - Antwoord

    It appeared 30 seconds were not enough, so I heated it more, by 5 seconds at a time until I got the right temperature about 70 degrees Celsius (measured with infrared pistol) to get the screen heated up to 60 C, the best for softening the glue. But the heat was quickly dissipating by the big aluminum back cover, so the best I got in 2 minutes of applying iOpener was around 45 C, which made the procedure difficult and having risk of breaking the screen. So I eventually abandoned iOpener and user a hot air gun with precise temperature setup. I set it to 90 C, which allowed me to open my iPad quickly and safely.

    Sergey Kofanov - Antwoord

    I, too, ended up using a hot air gun. I’ve done earlier versions of iPad before but the adhesive used on this IPad 5 A1822 was particularly difficult to remove.

    Also, while the suction cup worked great when the glass is in tact, any cracks in the glass make the suction cup useless.

    • Het openen van je telefoon zal de waterdichte pakkingen aantasten. Zorg dus dat je vervangende pakkingen klaar hebt liggen voordat je verder gaat, of voorkom dat je telefoon in aanraking komt met water als je besluit de pakkingen niet te vervangen.

    • Als je glas gebarsten is, kun je de achterkant beplakken met doorzichtige tape zodat je zeker weet dat het glas bij elkaar blijft tijdens deze reparatie.

    • Leg de verwarmde iOpener over de glazen achterkant gedurende ongeveer twee minuten om de lijm rondom de zijkanten van het glas te verzachten.

    • Het is goed mogelijk dat je deze stap een aantal keer zult moeten herhalen om de telefoon voldoende te verwarmen. Volg de iOpener-instructies om te voorkomen dat je je telefoon oververhit.

    • Verplaats de iOpener om het nog niet verwarmde deel van de achterkant ook te verwarmen.

    • Je kunt ook een föhn, warmtepistool of een kookplaat gebruiken in deze stap, maar wees hierbij voorzichtig dat je de telefoon niet oververhit. Het OLED-scherm en de batterij zijn erg vatbaar voor warmteschade.

    the way we do it at Get it fixed cellphone repair calgary is with a heat gun, wich is way easier than this, make sure to wear some gloves and dont worry to use to much heat as long as you point just to the back of the phone, (the back panel is thick enough to protect the logic board from over heat) instead of the usual blue plastic piece i sugest to use the thinnest metal razor knife and a business card so you can insert the business card and move it all around the frame, those blue plastic things are way too thick that will break the glass panel if you apply to much pressure

    I gave up on the hot bag after 4 heat and apply cycles. I was only getting the back up to 60c using an infrared thermometer. I switched to a harbor freight 1500w heat gun set to Low, moving constantly around the back, until the back read 95c. The back came off easily at that point.

    Nathan Wray - Antwoord

    I found another site that said temps of 203F/95C were required to soften the glues. Once I started using those temps with my heat gun, as well as a tool I made by just cutting the flat front/back panel from a package of screws (any plastic package that has a flat panel will work) , I had the back off in no time. Had I continued to use the plastic pick shown in the instructions, I really doubt I would have gotten the back off since I couldn’t get enough force on the back from my suction cup. The thin package plastic acted almost like a knife as I moved it around the outside edge. WARNING: If you have to reheat the back, REMOVE THE PACKAGE PLASTIC!! It will start to melt from the heat of a heat gun. Good Luck!!

After getting it above 100c, the back glass finally started to separate. You need another person to be ready with a pick. Once you get one pick in, the rest is .

    To get an even heat distribution at just the right temperature to easily pry the back off I used a steam iron, dry, set between wool and cotton. To hold down the phone I clamped it at the long edges with 2 strips of 1/4” furniture grade plywood cut at 7 degrees, screwed to 2’ 2x6; and then clamped the 2x6 to my work table. This made it much easier to persuade to back off without any oops!

    • Je kunt, optioneel, er ook nog voor kiezen om, als je plectrum eenmaal in de telefoon zit, wat isopropyl alcohol in de opening toe te dienen om de lijm nog verder te verzachten.

    If the rear screen is cracked/smashed, you will not be able to use a suction cup to remove it. The suction could would not seal because of the cracks. I tried masking tape, 3M shiny HVAC tape, and others, and the suction could would not seal to those surfaces either.

    I ended up using the sharp point of the smudger to remove some shards of glass to get underneath the cover to leverage it up and out. Definitely use gloves and safety glasses if you have to do this.

    Thank you for your comment. I needed to see this particular instance of what to do when the back cover was cracked. I was going to try to suction it with tape covering it. This saved me some heartache. You're an angel!!

    Jessie Brooks -

    Be careful during this step- reapply heat before attempting this one (battery issues tend to melt internal “areas” ) and this area is most prone to crack during the lifting of the back plate.

    [deleted] - Antwoord

    I think it is just about impossible to do this without at least removing some paint on the edges. Order a new back before you attempt this. It has the adhesive already on it and costs less than $10 on eBay.

    Thomas Hayes - Antwoord

    In order to get in more easily, I normally use the iFlex (the metal one) which is thin enough to create a little space, and then i insert a thinner plastic sheet, just like the default screen protector you might find on some huawei or xiaomi phones. That plus half a drop of alcohol should do the trick. Use caution and be very patient.

    Ridiculous. I put a heat gun on mine for 30 seconds, 3 times, couldn’t get the screen to move AT ALL while pulling very hard with suction cups.

    • Schuif je plectrum langs de onderkant van de telefoon om de lijm die de glazen achterkant op z'n plek houdt door te snijden.

    • Daarna kan het handig zijn om je plectrum op z'n plek te laten zitten en een tweede plectrum te pakken voor de volgende stap. Het laten zitten van je plectrum voorkomt dat de zojuist doorgesneden lijm zich opnieuw aan het toestel zal gaan hechten.

    • Verwarm de glazen achterkant zo veel als nodig is om te voorkomen dat de lijm afkoelt en weer hard wordt.

    Be careful that the bottom of the phone is well heated, and add a drop or so of isopropyl alcohol. When I removed the back glass of my S6, some of the black coating on the glass stayed stuck to the adhesive, so to return my phone to its original appearance, I’ll have to get a new back glass.

    • Om de nieuwe glazen achterkant te installeren:

    • Gebruik je een pincet om alle lijmresten uit het chassis van de telefoon te verwijderen.

    • Maak je de voorheen gelijmde gebieden schoon met hooggeconcentreerde isopropyl alcohol (minstens 90%) en een stuk stofvrij doek. Veeg alles in een en dezelfde richting en niet heen en weer. Dit prepareert het oppervlak voor de nieuwe lijm.

    • Trek de folie over het plakgedeelte van je nieuwe glazen achterkant los, breng een kant van de glazen achterkant op de juiste positie aan, druk deze kant tegen het chassis van de telefoon en druk je achterkant tot slot stevig vast.

    • Als je je oude glazen achterkant weer herinstalleert, of een glazen achterkant zonder vooraf geïnstalleerde kleefstrips gebruikt, volg je de instructies van deze handleiding.

    When I did my battery, the adhesive stayed almost 100% on the back glass and was still in good shape. What didn’t remain attached only lifted slightly and I was able to coax it back to its original location with tweezers. I didn’t bother to remove and replace the adhesive layer because mine was still good. I set the glass out of the way where it wouldn’t get dirt on the adhesive while I finished the battery swap. I added some additional heat (hair dryer) after reattaching the glass to make sure the adhesive made the best seal.

    • Zorg dat je de simkaarthouder, voordat je met deze stap begint, uit je toestel hebt verwijderd.

    • Pak een zijkant van de midframemodule stevig vast.

    • Til een kant van de midframemodule op terwijl je de batterij naar beneden duwt. Zo scheid je de midframemodule van de rest van de telefoon.

    • Wees, bij het optillen van het midframe, voorzichtig dat je deze niet breekt op de audiojack- of de oplaadpoort.

    • Als het midframe eenmaal voor een groot deel is losgekomen, schuif je je plectrum langs de zijkanten van de rest van de telefoon om de bovenkant van het midframe ook los te krijgen.

    • Wees voorzichtig en zorg dat je je plectrum niet per ongeluk tussen het glas en het scherm steekt.

    • Om te voorkomen dat je je hoofdtelefoonjack beschadigt, verwijder je eerst de bovenkant van het midframe en duw je het midframe vervolgens naar beneden om deze van de hoofdtelefoonjack los te maken.

    • Het kan, als het losmaken van het midframe te moeilijk blijkt, nodig en handig zijn om een iOpener te verwarmen en deze op de zijkanten van de telefoon te leggen om de lijm rondom het scherm genoeg te verzachten.

    When grabbing from the bottom, you fun the risk of damaging the charging port and headphone jack. I would suggest starting from the top. This is because the two ports at the bottom slide down into the frame. There is also adhesive that will give you a little resistance.

    For me, the battery removal was probably as difficult. maybe more so than removing the back or mid-frame. The adhesive on the left side woudn’t let go and the plastic pick couldn’t reach the left-side adhesive to release it. I finally got it through perseverance though.

    IFixit makes a tool about 5 inches long with a black plastic handle and a flat metal blade that is great for this. It’s a perfect prying tool. It’s about 4 inches of thicker plastic handle and 1 inch of steel blade. I would think if it was a sharp blade, it would be ideal for slicing through this type of adhesive. Like the dental floss idea also. Will try that on the next one.

    The steel blade tool is also great for removing the battery adhesive and back adhesive. Use like a dull chisel scraping up small chunks until done.

    Hi Rex,

    I think the tool you are thinking of is the Jimmy! It is indeed a versatile tool for many opening purposes. However, we do not recommend it for battery removal, as the dull metal blade can still slice through the battery pouch.

Samsung warrenties are rubbish.

sailr - Antwoord

What step are you stuck on?

Evan Noronha -

I've encountered phones where the IOpener was no match for all the adhesive. I succeeded by heating them with an iron that's made for shrinking monocoat covering around the wings of radio controlled model airplanes. You can get them at a good hobby shop for ~$15.00. It's shaped so you can heat around corners and comes with a sock to keep from scratching anything. That method always defeated the adhesive for me.

David Blythe - Antwoord

If you are using a heat shrink iron as David commented above, keep it in contact with the phone for the shortest possible time required to soften the adhesive. At their highest settings these irons can reach over 200 degrees C (around 400 F) which is hot enough to damage flat cables, and distort or even melt plastic components inside the phone.

mlewus - Antwoord

The recipe is quite good and easy to follow.

But you should buy the the adhesive film and use it to fix the body again because the old one you have to destroy to handle the screws.

This film you can by at Amazon for 7,50€ and it was delivered within 2 days.

Winfried Vogel - Antwoord

If you’re really slow and careful (or really lucky like I was), the entire adhesive strip will stay with the glass and none of it stays on the mid-frame. I didn’t have to replace the adhesive because there was only one tiny lifted area on the glass that I was able to put back into the correct position using tweezers.

I did apply more heat around the mid-frame as well as the back-glass though. Since the mid-frame is metal, it sinks heat and the adhesive doesn’t melt until the frame gets hot enough.

Bobby Nguang - Antwoord

Once you get to removing the battery there is some adhesive holding it in place. It is probably a good idea to replace this so the battery does not move around, I used a small amount of UHU all purpose glue.

DO NOT USE super glue as this damages the plastic covering of the battery.

David Foley - Antwoord

Just did this today. If I had to add anything, you need a LOT of heat, and a VERY thin guitar pick to get between the glass and the midframe. I had to get the back panel to around 100c before the adhesive would give way, a lot hotter than I usually need to get most things apart (75-80c is the norm). Be careful not to burn yourself whilst you're doing this. Also, a larger battery will fit in here! Apparently S7 batteries can fit in the S6, but do your research online before you attempt this.

hi! ive just finished replacing the battery after using your method. it worked perfectly! however, now im having problems trying to get the screen on. i placed the phone on charge (as the new battery would need charging) and i attempted to turn it on after 30 mins. The first time i pressed the power button, the blue light at the top came on, the buttons at the bottom near the home button lit up and i heard the samsung start up sound, but nothing showed on the screen. the second time i pressed the power button (while battery was still being charged, the bottom buttons, again, lit up and the red charging indicator light remained on but i didnt get the samsung start up sound and the blue light as i did the first time. Is this just an issue with the battery not being charged still or is there possibly something wrong with the connector on my motherboard?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Tyranique Thurston - Antwoord

Just swapped out my battery… took about half an hour for me too. I would recommend a hair dryer over the heat pad they give you. Put the hi dryer on high and steadily went over the back panel for about 3 to 4 minutes moving medium slow…. I used the adhesive that I bought for the phon that matches the frame, but t had to buy on amazon for it. Also, needed just a bit of double sided tape to put the new battery on in place.

Overall though it’s a great kit and instructions!!! Gonna have to do another Samsung 6 soon, but the cost for the kit andbatteries is way cheaper than anew phone or the $120 to have someone do it for me. Though I am technically very capable to do the repair, anyone should be fine doing it if they can use a screw driver and just take their time.

This was super easy to do. The kits on Amazon fit perfectly. Used my hobby iron and went around the edges for about 3 minutes set at 100C (212F) and everything came off real easy with no damage to anything.

Hello. My S6 felt in the sink (full of water). Unfortunatly the rear facing camera glass (from the frame) was broken. Couple of water got inside.

Do you think I have any chance?

presi - Antwoord

I also wouldn’t have bought this phone if I’d known how hard it is to do the routine maintenance of replacing the battery. Since this is rated as difficult, I was afraid to attempt it myself. I took a new battery and adhesive strips to a local repair shop, SecurePro in SLO, where someone who’s done this many times turned it around perfectly in under half an hour. No more range anxiety!

Cynthia Replogle - Antwoord

Wasn’t too bad- my only problem / tip (?)- the rear glass on my phone had semi-shattered, so prying the rear cover off caused a few more breaks in the glass- and crucially, the glass seperated from the opaque film backing rather than from the phone. meant having to remove the backing and glue. Which was fine- I didn’t mind having the rear glass broken before but now it is transparent! which actually looks super cool. Great guide.

Hugh Roche Kelly - Antwoord

Out of curiosity - I replaced the battery with the kit from IFixIt - production date of new battery was early 2018.

Battery is now used for 2 months - and has a capacity of close to 0. So it last for 1/4 day without any interaction; phone typically drops dead at around 40% of the battery. A reboot then shows 0% battery.

Has anyone seen similar behavior.

I’m wondering if replacing the battery jet again makes sense - or if all S6 batteries (even the replacment kits) are just crap.

I’ve tried about 6 different battery makes now and they are all total crap and none of them are even as good as the 4 year old Samsung battery which now barely lasts half a day.

All the ‘Genuine Samsung Battery’ are complete lies.

Don’t buy cheap batteries. There are plenty of high-quality replacements out there, including the ones sold on this site, which are backed by a 1-year warranty.

I must have what it takes to be a cell phone technition. What this article describes as difficult was extremely easy for me. This is my second phone repair . Thank you for such easy to follow directions.

Clear and thorough guide. Forewarned by the difficulty level, with care and patience I have given my second-hand S6 a new lease of life.

This is the first ifixit kit and guide I have tried and you will definitely be my first port of call for tech repair guidance in future.

I am going to try this soon as the battery in my s6 is slowly dying. It will not stop me from getting a Samsung again as they are the best phones out there.

Sad iFixit doesn’t show how to position its own Adhesive strips Galaxy S6 Battery Adhesive Strips.

No idea how to position both single side tapes.

The kit from ifixit was thoughtfully engineered and worked very well. The instructions were very clear and accurate. I’ve read, and written, plenty of instructions for manufacturing and assembling finicky parts, and these are among the best I’ve seen. Nice job all around. Took 1 hour, as advertised, and the phone works afterward!

Well, thats me just completed the swap out, the battery was the original since release so no shame to it. but fingers crossed this gives it a new lease of life.

was really nervous trying to get the rear glass off. unfortunately after an hour of so, the iopener just didnt seem to have much of an effect on the crazily strong adhesive, or it was just me being too nervous to pry to hard. ended up preheating a side edge with the iopener, then going in with the heat gun for a larger area to get the picks under.

there was one problem i had getting the screen back into the midframe. i had to do the reverse of whats shown here, and putting in the headphone jack edge first, since going the other way there just seemed like too much pressure needed to pop it back in since at that area there was quite a bit of overlap and i probably would have ended up breaking front glass.

but, job done, but yep, putting it back together in other edge first worked a treat.

fingers crossed i get another 5 years outta my phone :)

I DID IT! and the best part is, is works! now the only question I have is, what do i do with the old battery?

sarah spencer - Antwoord

Congratulations! Take a look at this page to figure out how to responsibly dispose of the battery.

Arthur Shi -

The iOpener did not effectively heat my adhesive - I tore some of the plastic film attached to the glass because the adhesive was still stuck to the frame. Otherwise, a great kit and fairly simple to follow instructions. The longest part by far was detaching the adhesive stuck behind on the frame when I removed my backing glass. Reassembly took only about 5 minutes!

Melinda Tom - Antwoord

Managed to get it to work with a heat gun an no iOpener, freaked me out but worked in the end

The Awesome Productions - Antwoord

The main reason it’s a difficult disassembly is, because Samsung uses a fck-ton of adhesive. 90% of my time was spent heating, reheating and pulling on the back cover and later the middle frame. The rest is easy peasy lemon squeazy.

What a horrible way to make any repairs super difficult. Shame on Samsung!

Peeeeeeeeeeeeeee - Antwoord

LCD Opening Pliers work wonders. These are like pliers with 2 suction cups that go on the front and back. A bit of gentle pressure will start to lift off the back slightly and you can then separate it further with a pick. In my opinion these instructions are overly complicated.

Vous avez fait une omission vient de détruire mon téléphone, il y a une nappe très petite pour le bouton de dévérouillage qui fait le lien ente le chassis et le boitier !!

Je ne vous dis pas merci

Bonjour Thomas, nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que vous avez rencontré un problème avec votre réparation. Aviez-vous retiré le tiroir de carte SIM au début de la réparation ?
