Introdução

Use this guide to replace the screen on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+.

This guide instructs you to replace only the display while leaving the original frame, logic board, and battery in place. 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. This procedure is very different, so make sure you have the correct part before starting this guide.

If the frame is damaged or bent, it's important to replace it, or else the new screen may not mount correctly and can suffer damage from uneven pressure.

The process of separating the display from the frame usually destroys the display, so don't follow this guide unless you intend to replace the display.

Removing the rear glass destroys the adhesive holding it in place. The adhesive will need to be replaced before the rear glass is replaced or reinstalled.

Insert a paper clip or SIM card eject tool into the hole in the SIM card slot on the volume button side of the phone. Do not insert the tool into the microphone hole or you could cause damage. Look for the outline of the SIM tray. Press to eject the SIM card tray.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

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

Once the back panel is hot to the touch, apply a suction cup near the center of the phone, and as close as possible to the edge of the panel. Lift on the suction cup to create a small gap underneath the rear glass, and insert an opening pick into the gap.

  • To reinstall the back cover:

    • First use tweezers to peel away any remaining adhesive from both the back cover and the phone's chassis.

    • Then, clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%) and a lint-free cloth. Swipe in one direction only, not back and forth. This will help prep the surface for the new adhesive.

    • Be sure to turn on your phone and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing the phone.

    • Replacement adhesive comes in a pre-cut sheet to match the exact contours of the back cover. The sheet is asymmetrical, so make sure the screw holes in the adhesive sheet line up with the screws on the frame before applying the adhesive.

      • If the adhesive sheet is not available, you can use a high-bond double-sided tape, such as Tesa 61395.

    • After installing the rear cover, apply strong, steady pressure to your phone for several minutes to help the adhesive form a good bond, such as by placing it under a stack of heavy books.

  • If desired, you may reinstall the back cover without replacing the adhesive. Remove any large chunks of adhesive that might prevent the back cover from sitting down flush. After installation, heat the back cover and apply pressure to secure it. It won't be waterproof, but the glue is usually more than strong enough to hold.

  • After removing all traces of glue and glass from the frame, clean the adhesion areas with 90% (or higher) isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth or coffee filter. Swipe in one direction only, not back and forth.

    • This helps remove any remaining adhesive residue and preps the surface for the new adhesive.

  • If the frame is bent, or if any glue or glass remnants are left behind, the new display will not mount correctly and may be damaged. If necessary, replace the frame.

  • The best way to secure the new screen is with a sheet of custom-cut double-sided tape. Apply the tape to the back of the screen, then carefully feed the display cable through the frame. Align the screen and press it into place.
