How to disassembly the Galaxy Book 12?
Hey there i would like to know how to disassembly the 2. in 1 galaxy book 12 from samsung thankx
i managed to disassemble this and made a video on how,
i will post on youtube and post link soon
Here is a comparison between John's teardown pic and a picture from a Samsung launch video; you can see where the m.2 SSD lives, and it seems to be the 80mm long variant. I'm going to try to pry mine open and swap it out.
I went ahead with the disassembly, mostly successful. I was able to open it up and swap out the SSD, I went with a 500GB Samsung 860 EVO and its working great, I'm typing this on the machine right now.
The downsides are that I can probably never sell the tablet now, and it looks a little rough around the edges now. The heatgun actually slightly melted one of the plastic vents on the side, but its not a big deal. The bigger deal was that the gun seems to have slightly warped the metal frame, so once I got the screen off, I realized that the power butten seemed to be stuck in the on position, and couldn't get it to pop back out. The volume buttons were fine. I realized that the slot that is cut out for the powerbutton had compressed and shrunk, so the button had no breathing room to move. I stupidly tried to re-expand the slot with a screwdriver, which is why I have all these little indentations around the power button slot. I ended up having to take the button out, and use a dremel to shave off a little of the side of the power button, once I did that it was fine.
I didn't see the memory inside anywhere, though most of the components are covered by the heat sink.
I'm guessing the memory is probably soldered on to the board anyone. I was hoping to find the wifi card so I could maybe swap that out, but couldn't find it.
I assumed I would have to buy some sticky adhesive to put the screen back on, but I just pushed it closed and it seems to be staying that way. I did notice some pinkish discoloration along the bottom of the screen, but it seems to be gone, so it either self corrected or I imagined it.
I have just removed the screen from my Galaxy Book 12. It wasn't too difficult. The attachment method is very similar to a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or 4 so you could look at some youtube videos of those to give an idea.
The screen is only attached with heat sensitive tape. I used a heat gun, razor blades and a plastic pry tool. It would be best to only pry on the top and sides, not the bottom as the join is narrow there and the LCD ribbon cables can easily be damaged, as I did. Didn't matter in my case as the LCD panel is broken.
If you can get the top and 2 sides separated then you can just use leverage (and some heat) to separate the bottom. Then detach the LCD and touch cables from the mainboard.
It appears to me that the glass digitizer is quite strong but the LCD panel is very fragile. That is the opposite to a Surface Pro where the glass cracks very easily but the LCD usually remains intact.
I hope this thread isnt dead yet, but i found a sweet teardown video with decent enough english dubbing. I just ordered a 512gb ssd for my verizon lte model and im going to attempt my own upgrade. If im not too impatient ill remember to record my teardown as well.
I come from China. We have a group dedicated to electronic painting equipment. Someone has successfully disassembled Galaxy Book12 and successfully upgraded 4GB ram to 8GB ram. However, 16GB ram is still not tried, which involves the RAM chip model, motherboard circuit and BIOS. I am willing to try to upgrade 16GB and become the first customer of this service, but I don't have Galaxy Book12 4GB on hand.
Here is the part number for the LCD for the Book 12.
I think they cannot disassembly it.
There is no posting about galaxybook.
That's the same model I have and it's been running great with it's 512 upgrade for the past few months. As a said in my original post, just be careful with the heat gun, as I warped the frame and power button a little bit.
Ok so my attempt at the ssd upgrade ended poorly. I dont believe i rushed the disassembly but i managed to crack the digitizer and seperate the oled panel with the guitar picks. Everything was going smoothly till i got to the corner. The panel is much more fragile than I initially thought. Theres a good chance the room i was working in was too cold to safely attempt this. I was heating the entire display as evenly as i could, but i had to stop often to warm it back up. Be careful if attempting this.
I just brought another galaxy book from ebay for 150 that has intermittent black screen issues, I'm thinking loose cable. Not much money lost if I screw up.
Could be a weak battery or defective gpu. Good deal if you can fix with a cheap part
Sounds great i would be intrested.
