How to Disassemble the Galaxy S7 LCD Assembly to Replace Screen, Charging Port and Home Button

As we all know, for Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series phones, the front frame is strongly glued to the LCD assembly and hardly being removed for individual users or unexperienced technicians. For those who want to make the replacement work easier and less risky, a Galaxy S7 LCD and digitizer with frame would be the best screen replacement if unfortunately your Galaxy S7 screen was broken. However, if the Galaxy S7 charging port or home button was damaged and had to be replaced, then the disassembly of Galaxy S7 front housing is a must. Here we’re going to walk you through how to replace a LCD assembly, charger port or home button by disassembling the Galaxy S7 LCD and digitizer assembly with front housing.

 

Tools Needed:

• Playing Cards

• Gloves
Spudger
• Screwdriver


1. Galaxy S7 Screen Replacement.

Heat up around the edges of Galaxy S7 LCD assembly back and forth to soften the front housing adhesive underneath. Pay your patience, the Galaxy S7 LCD assembly and frame are bonded by extremely sticky [waterproof adhesive](http://www.etradesupply.com/samsung-galaxy-s7-seires-lcd-adhesive.html) so as to make it IP68 protected. The waterproofness of Galaxy S7 will lost once the screen was replaced unless you apply the adhesive as sealed as the original manufacturer made, which is almost impossible to realize.

Wear a pair of gloves to avoid your hands being hurt by the hot display. Carefully insert the tip of metal spudger into the gap between LCD assembly and frame, run it back and forth to weaken the adhesive.



2. Galaxy S7 Charging Port Replacement

Heat up to soften the adhesive under the navigator light, then pry it up, turn back to pry up the charging port flex cable ribbon assembly.


3. Galaxy S7 Home Button Replacement

Like the disassembly of charging port assembly, peel off the sticky waterproof adhesive around the home button. Then pry up the home button and flex cable ribbon.

    Hi, i would like to know if i have to replace the Home Button on the Samsung S7 will the fingerprint continue to work? If yes is there any criteria i must look into when buying the Home Button? Since same is not available in shops here i will need to order from Ebay or Aliexpress. Thanks for your reply.

    PS: the paint on my S7 Home Button has been completely peeled, it is appearing black and fingerprint unrecognised.

      Hi, it’s hard to assure its waterproofness after DIY repair work, the phone can be waterproof again when repaired by professional skills.
