Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Screen Replacement Guide
At Digital Supply USA, we are committed to providing you with the tools necessary to make your DIY screen replacements a success. By providing you with quality materials, replacement parts and instructions, we are here to guide you every step of the way.
Our Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Glass Screen Repair Replacement Kit includes all of the components you need for a DIY screen replacement, including the screen. Or, select our Samsung Galaxy Repair Tool Kit if you already have a replacement screen.
Gather the tools included in your kit when you are ready to begin. Work on a flat surface in a brightly lit area.
Important: When you remove your screws, it is crucial that you keep track of them.
- Your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 must be powered down.
- Heat up the back cover to make the adhesive soft. We recommend using a blow dryer to do this. Hold the blow dryer about 4" from the back of the phone; make sure not to get it too hot.
With a precision knife, loosen the back of the phone just enough to be able to insert a playing card. Separate the adhesive with the playing card and open the Note 8. Reheat as often as needed to loosen the adhesive holding the parts together.
- You will need to detach the short fingerprint sensor cable from the motherboard before removing the glass screen.
- Use the spudger to carefully free the Galaxy Note 8 fingerprint reader from the adhesive that is holding it to the rear panel.
- Using our professional Phillips screwdriver, remove 16 Phillips screws.
- Pry up the mid-frame NFC antenna and key wireless charging coil combo piece. With this piece out of the way, the loudspeaker assembly will easily lift out of the bottom.
- Disconnect the battery cable from the motherboard. Use the spudger to free the battery from the phone.
- With a Phillips screwdriver, remove one screw
- Locate the two ribbon cables. Remove these two ribbon cables from the Note 8 motherboard with your spudger.
- Using the flat end of your spudger, detach the daughterboard connector on the underside of the motherboard. Remove from the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
- Remove the Phillips screw located by the ribbon cables (previously detached). Detach the 3.5 mm modular Note 8 headphone jack. Set this aside.
- Pry the daughterboard up from the frame with your spudger. This includes the phone's USB C port and primary microphone.
- Locate the front-facing sensor array that contains the status LED, camera and the proximity sensor. Using your tweezer, remove the earpiece speaker and the spring-contact connected vibrator.
- Remove the Note 8 volume button cable and the power button cable.
- With your blow dryer, heat up the edge-to-edge screen assembly. Use a playing card to insert between the screen and the phone, loosening the adhesive. Apply additional heat as needed.
- Separate the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 screen from the frame by sliding a playing card in between the two. When separating the screen from the frame, pay attention to the cables.
- Set your broken screen to the side and replace it with the replacement screen.
- Follow the directions in reverse order as you reassemble your Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
