How To Put The Screws Back After Repairing Tablet PC

By on November 3, 2012

In order to open up a tablet PC one need to remove all the screws located at the external cover. Not only that you need to remove screws located under the cover. Having so many screws will confuse you especially when you want to assemble it back. Arjunaidi share a good tip by using an A4 paper to tape the screws so that one can put them back in correct position and also not losing the screws. You can use this method when repairing other electronic devices. Check out the photos below:

    There is a commercial product called Magnetic Project Matt that does the same job.  My solution using an A4 paper is a cheap or free alternative.

      Hi Shehab,

      No I haven't heard of it but that is a great feature. I don't think tablet can replace the function of desktop pc. Tablet is for convenience and not for heavy duty work. For example, at my age I like to look at bigger screen which tablet can't provide. Next I need a real keyboard to provide the speed in supporting my customers. Keyboard in the tablet screen is a nightmare when you type a lot. When you are designing thing or writing in words desktop is still the preferred choice.

    yes indeed, a very good method but if you were busy doing a lot of repair in the shop, that would be time would take to much time to do it. I usually take a picture of it before a open the device and once i open it, I take another picture of inside screws..always helped. I use an iphone camera. i do the same thing with wiring especially when I have to disconnect more than two cables in the machine..
