Samsung Note 3 Screen Repair, Charging Port Fix, COMPLETE

Samsung Note 3 Screen Repair, Charging Port Fix, COMPLETE

Today I’m going to show you how to take
apart the Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung. So pop out the S Pen. I’m going to link all the
tools and parts that I know of in the video description below. Amazon is usually where
I get all my stuff from. Here is a diagram of the screws you need to release. Those are
just little tiny Phillips head screw driver. So get all those screws out. Take the battery
out and then grab right here and kind of lift up with your fingernail and it will help you
slid the pry tool between the plastic and the screen itself. And that will release the
back plastic from the phone. There are a few little latches along the top as well, but
once you get it started it’s pretty easy to just slide your tool around and pop off
the rest of the back. One cool thing that Samsung has done actually is they’ve taken
the microphone and put it on the back of the phone. So there are two little connectors
right there that go onto the charging port and that’s where the microphone gets its
power and it’s connection to the phone from. So I’m going to show you how to take off
the charging port right now. It’s just a little latch up at the top; it’s kind of
like a little Lego piece that snaps on. And then I’m sliding my pry tool underneath
the charging port to release it. It’s kind of just stuck on with sticky tape and a little
bit of glue. And that is the charging port, the micro USB 3.0 that Samsung has started
putting on their devices. The Note is the first one to have this kind of charging port.
Once you get your new one you can put it back on. These are usually, you know once the part
becomes available, they’re pretty cheap. So just check the video description below
for that. Anyway, so if that’s all you’re doing, you’re done. If you want to keep
on going and replace the screen of the phone, this is a little wire cable that just latches
on. Just make sure to clip it back into place when you’re done. If you want to replace
the screen of your device there’s a little bit more you have to do. There are 6 little
ribbon cables. There are those three, this is four, and five and six are right there.
You just have to flip these up and out just like little Lego pieces they clip up and out.
There’s another one right here. And another one right here by the headphone jack. Just
be really careful with this cuz if you rip any of these cables you’re out of luck.
Then there’s one more down here by the S pin. So once you get those all up and off,
the motherboard comes free. And the motherboard is attached to the camera as well so if you
want to replace the 13 megapixel camera, just take the same little ribbon connector, pop
it up and out, and your camera is off. So if you ever get any weird purple dots or anything
that’s messing with your camera, just buy the replacement and pop it into place. Now
this is the screen of the phone. This is what you have to replace if you crack your screen.
You’ve got the digitizer on the front and the LCD, the super amoled screen, underneath.
You cannot separate the two, so if you break your screen, that’s the part you have to
replace. Anyway, I will link those in the video description below. And to put your phone
back together just take the motherboard, press it into place. Make sure the camera goes in
the little square slot that it came from. Then just press the little ribbon cables back
into place just like Legos. Then you’ll hear a little click each time you get it in
the right spot. Get the charging port cable back into place; connect it to the motherboard
again. And then the back will also clip into place. Just start at the top and clip around
the edges all the way around. And then there are all those screws again so here’s the
diagram of where those go. They’re all the same size so you don’t need to worry about,
you know, which one goes where. It’s pretty straight forward. Anyway, get the battery
back in there. Turn it on, make sure you get your SIM card back in there as well and your
CD card. Make sure you take those out before you start taking apart the phone. Anyway,
thanks for watching. I put up videos on a fairly regular basis. I get access to a lot
of cool phones, and take them apart as soon as I get the chance. Anyway, don’t forget

My Note 3 stopped charging while it was powered up.  It would charge only when the power was turned off.  When I would power it up, it was saying that the USB was connected when there was nothing plugged into it.  So, I figured it was the charging port gone bad.  Ordered the new one after watching this video.  It solved the issue.  Thanks, it was easy to swap out because of watching this video.  Great job.
