    • Turn on your Steam Deck and allow the battery to discharge below 25% before starting your repairs, as a charged lithium-ion polymer battery can be dangerous if accidentally punctured.

    • As an extra precaution, Valve recommends putting your Steam Deck into battery storage mode within the BIOS before starting any internal repairs. Read how to do that here.

    • Power down your Steam Deck and unplug any cables.

    • If you have a microSD card installed, make sure to remove it before opening the Steam Deck. If you attempt to remove the back cover with it still installed, it could snap right in half.

    • During your repair, it can be helpful at times to lay the Steam Deck face-down into its case to protect the thumbsticks and prevent wobble.

    • Use a Phillips driver to remove the eight screws securing the back cover:

    • Four coarse thread 9.5 mm-long screws

    • Four fine thread 5.8 mm-long screws

    • Despite the standards, Phillips screwdrivers can vary in size and shape—two drivers labeled as the same size may fit differently in the same screw. Use the size that fits the snuggest into the screw head.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your Steam Deck.

    • Insert an opening pick into the thin gap between the back cover and the front shell, along the edge of the right grip.

    • If you're having trouble inserting your pick at the grip seam, try starting at either the top or bottom long edges first, then slide the pick towards the grip.

    • Pry up on the back cover to release it from the locking clips.

    • Once the clips are disconnected from one edge, the rest disconnect easily.

    • Grip the back cover at the opening you just created and pull it up and away from the device to unclip the long edges.

    • Remove the back cover.

    • If you have a refreshed Steam Deck version with the black motherboard cover, skip this step.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the piece of foil tape covering the hidden screw on the board shield.

    • If possible, try not to rip or tear this tape so it can be reused. If necessary, you can fashion a replacement by cutting a piece of aluminum foil tape to fit.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the sticker from the top edge of the fan.

    • If possible, try not to rip or tear this sticker so it can be reused. Use a little bit of heat if necessary to soften the adhesive.

    • If the sticker feels like it might tear, use tweezers to peel up one edge just until you can grip it with your fingers, then remove the rest by hand.

    • For original Steam Decks: Use a Phillips driver to loosen and remove the two screws securing the heatsink to the motherboard:

    • One captive 3.5 mm screw

    • One 3.4 mm screw

    • No, your eyes don't deceive you! The third heatsink screw was removed earlier in the disassembly: it doubles as the hidden board shield screw.

    • For refreshed Steam Decks: Use a Phillips driver to remove the three screws securing the heatsink to the motherboard:

    • Two 2.9 mm screws

    • One 3.7 mm screw

    • During reassembly on both versions, tighten these screws in order (1, 2, 3) as stamped into the heatsink.

    • Prepare an iOpener and apply it to the top edge of the display for one minute.

    • A hair dryer or heat gun may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the Steam Deck—displays and internal batteries are both susceptible to heat damage.

  28. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Apply a suction cup: passo 28, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Apply a suction cup: passo 28, imagem 2 %32
    • Apply a suction cup to the top left corner of the display by pressing down on it to create suction, as close to the edge as possible.

    • If your screen is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken glass.

  29. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 29, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 29, imagem 2 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 29, imagem 3 %32
    • Pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the display and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Don't insert the pick more than 1/8 of an inch (~3 mm) or you risk damaging the display panel, ambient light sensor, or fragile cable underneath.

  38. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Prepare the surfaces: passo 38, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Prepare the surfaces: passo 38, imagem 2 %32
    • To ensure a good adhesive bond, thoroughly clean all adhesion surfaces.

    • Remove large chunks of adhesives with the flat end of a spudger or plastic opening tool.

    • Don't use metal tools, as they can scratch the surface.

  39. Steam Deck Screen Replacement: passo 39, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement: passo 39, imagem 2 %32
    • Use adhesive remover or isopropyl alcohol (>90%) to remove any remaining residue. Wipe in one direction with a lint-free cloth or coffee filter until all the adhesive residue is gone.

    • While isopropyl alcohol is generally safe to use on electronics, they will dissolve certain foam adhesives. Be careful to contain the alcohol when cleaning—don't use too much.

    • Allow any leftover isopropyl alcohol to completely evaporate before reassembly.

  40. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Remove the adhesive liner: passo 40, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Remove the adhesive liner: passo 40, imagem 2 %32
    • Before you peel any liners, locate the surface the sticky side should adhere to.

    • Once you have a good idea of where the adhesive strip goes, peel off and discard the liner, exposing the adhesive underneath.

    • Be careful with exposed adhesives. Most of the time, you can't peel and reapply adhesive strips if they're stuck to the wrong spot.

  41. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Align and place the adhesive strips: passo 41, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Align and place the adhesive strips: passo 41, imagem 2 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Align and place the adhesive strips: passo 41, imagem 3 %32
    • Hold the exposed strip by its tabs and carefully line up the edge of the adhesive to the outer edge of display.

    • Use your old display as a reference for where the new adhesive strips should be applied on the new display’s edges.

    • Be careful with alignment. Most of the time, you can't peel and reapply adhesive strips if they stick misaligned.

    • Set the adhesive onto the surface and press firmly with your fingers to set it in place.

    • Repeat the previous two steps for the three other display adhesive strips.

  42. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Peel off the last adhesive liners: passo 42, imagem 1 %32
    • Peel off and discard the remaining plastic liners on all four strips, exposing the adhesive underneath.

    • Repeat for all four display adhesive strips, being careful not to touch any exposed adhesives.

  43. Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Install the new display: passo 43, imagem 1 %32 Steam Deck Screen Replacement, Install the new display: passo 43, imagem 2 %32
    • Set the new display in place on the midframe and press firmly along the edges for 20-30 seconds to ensure a good adhesive bond.

On peut mettre un autre ecran OLED ou autre ?

Non. Le matériel ne prend en charge qu'un écran très similaire ou identique à l'original.
