简介

The Galaxy Tab S3 has four speakers which provide stereo sound. Two of the speakers are located on the top of the device, and the other two are located on the bottom. If the tablet won’t play audio correctly through the built-in speakers, you may need to replace some or all of the modules. This guide will show you how to remove and replace them properly.

To soften the adhesive holding the tablet together, heat up the edges of the glass panel using a heated iOpener on the edge of the device.
  • To soften the adhesive holding the tablet together, heat up the edges of the glass panel using a heated iOpener on the edge of the device.

  • We used two iOpeners to open up the tablet. The process is doable with a single iOpener, but would take substantially longer. Alternatively, you can use a heat gun to quickly loosen the adhesive.

  • Leave the iOpener on edge for two minutes.

  • Be careful not to burn yourself while handling the hot iOpener. For more information on the iOpener, use the iOpener Instructions Guide.

  • As you continue along the edge using the opening tool, use a plastic card to keep the glass separate from the midframe.
