I am using this guide to simply open and disconnect the LCD from the power to (hopefully) deal with the battery being drained and when charging automatically using up the intitial charge trying to light up the screen (either a non-charging battery sign on the screen for a few seconds before turning off, or it begins to flicker, either state lasts indefinitely w ith no response to any button configuration).
If it t urns out to be right off or bang on, I will try to check back and post the results.
The pain in the *** that has me upset is that when it came time to “lift the retaining tab for the battery cable, the %#*@ instructions didn’t specify that it was only needed to a minute degree, rather than the 90 degrees required by most of it’s bigger cousins.
So now I have to figure out how to replace THAT without going to a Samsung repair location when I am having to worry about rent after losing my job.
THAT is why including EVERY SINGLE STEP and detail is important for DIY instructions, including repetition.
