    This written repair guide will allow you to safely and quickly repair a damaged touch screen, LCD (AMOLED) screen, and other internal components of your Samsung Epic 4G. Follow this guide and your Samsung smartphone will be working like new again!

    This guide will help you to install the following Samsung Epic 4G part(s):
    • Samsung Epic 4G LCD & Touch Screen Glass Digitizer Assembly

    Tools Required:
    • Safe Open Pry Tool
    • Small Phillips Screwdriver
    • T5 Torx Screwdriver

    Samsung Epic 4G take apart:
    • First step is to remove the back battery by pressing in the button at the bottom of the phone which will then loosen the cover. The battery and cards can now be removed.
    • Next remove the six (6) screws that are holding the back housing in place. Screws are located at each corner and one on the center of each side.
    • Carefully insert the safe pry tool in the crack between the back housing and the front housing of the phone. Begin at the bottom and lightly loosen the clips, working your way all the way around the phone. You can now remove the back housing by simply pulling it lightly away from the front part of the phone.
    • Unlock the keyboard and the antenna clips using safe pry tool. These can be found at the left side of the motherboard, and appear as flat pieces of metal. Now cautiously insert the safe pry tool beneath them and press upward, to bend them into a straight up position instead of flat with the board as the currently are.

    • Disconnect the antenna wire which appears as a small white wire on the right side of the battery location (shown in figure 2). Now gently pull up the top and bottom parts of this wire to disconnect it from the phone using your pry tool.
    • There is one (1) screw that holds the loud speaker. Remove this screw to totally remove the loud speaker from the bottom of the phone.
    • Disconnect all the connection then gently remove the entire motherboard from the phone

    The screen is fine but the no display at all. It is possible to replace only the LCD Screen or do I need to replace both?

    It may be possible, but it is EXTREMELY difficult. We highly recommend purchasing the combination screen (touch screen digitizer + LCD screen), if you are going to attempt that repair.
