@jeffsu Thanks Jeff! Yes, I had found that after doing a bit more searching. The battery in my SP2 is now completely non-functional, but luckily a while back it had bloated to the point where 70+% of the screen has been detached for the casing, so hopefully that will make the process a bit easier. And anyways, it’s necessary to return the device to a more than basically functional level, so I have no choice but to dig in after the holidays are over.
On the chance that you might see this message, where were you able to find a replacement power button assembly for the surface pro 2?
Any chance anyone who’s done this replacement is still following this page? My Surface Pro 2 battery has started to majorly crap out, so I think I’m going to grab a battery here and give this a try. I have definitely not been happy with the build quality of my Surface, in fact, the adhesive at the bottom and 90% of each side has failed more than 6 months ago, so I’m thinking it should be much easier for me to remove the screen. I’ll mainly just need to deal with the top edge of the device.
My question is how to re-”glue” the screen once you take it off? Is that possible? I saw someone mention double sided tape to use to attach the new battery, but would you use the same thing for the screen? Hoping someone can help offer insight from experience. Thanks!
