my Speaker tone … can i stitch it ?

Mr Jay - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

Il ne faut surement pas plier la nappe de la carte E/S mais dévisser son support afin de ne pas l’endommager. Une fois pliée, elle ne reviendra jamais parfaitement droite. Il y a deux petites vis qui maintiennent le support qu’il faut dévisser, à moins qu’il y ait encore quelque chose de caché !

why do I need to disconnect the battery in order to replace the speaker?

Ohad S - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

It is best to always disconnect power from any device you’re working on. Worst case scenario you lay a screw driver down on the device or drop a conductive piece of metal somewhere into the case and it shorts out the board you’re working on. This is the safest way to do repairs.

Elliott Fix -

Will this be back in stock in the UK anytime soon?
