Step 1 — Back Panel Removal

Begin the process by making sure that the dock is disconnected and the power is turned off.

Start by using the plastic opening tool on the side opposite the dock/ charging port. Begin to open
the device along the short sides of the tablet.

When you have reached the side with the charging/ dock port be gentle with the opening tool due to
the thinner plastic that could be broken with excessive force.

Once the opening tools have completely made their way around the device use the spudger to
separate the back panel from the screen and expose the inside.

Step 2 — Turn Off the Power

The Asus Transformer series tablets
have a hard power switch. This
should be turned off before working
on the tablet.

Locate the power switch near the
power button on the top left. Use a
tool to slide it to the position marked
'off'

For many repairs, like replacing
the screen or digitizer, you do not
need to remove the battery once
you hve turned the tablet off. Be
very careful not to short anything
out with metal tools!
