Follow this guide to remove and replace a broken screen for your Samsung Galaxy S10e. This involves removing the back cover in order to disconnect the screen from the motherboard.

This guide destructively removes the screen panel while retaining the original frame. The screen consists of the top glass and the display panel. Even though the procedure will remove the top glass separately from the panel, you will not be able to reuse the screen.

  1. Opening your phone will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement adhesive ready before you proceed, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your phone without replacing the adhesive.
    • Opening your phone will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement adhesive ready before you proceed, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your phone without replacing the adhesive.

    • Turn your phone off completely before you begin this repair.

    • Prepare an iOpener and heat the back of the phone along the right edge for about two minutes. This will help soften the adhesive securing the back cover.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  2. In the following steps, you'll be cutting through the adhesive securing the back cover. The adhesive is laid out as seen in the first image, which shows the inside of the cover after it has been removed.

    • The adhesive is laid out as seen in the first image, which shows the inside of the cover after it has been removed.

    • As seen from the outside of the phone, you'll be slicing through the adhesive in the highlighted areas.

    • The adhesive is the thinnest on the right side of the phone, just below the Bixby button.

  3. Secure a suction cup to the back cover, as close to the heated edge as possible, just under the Bixby button where the adhesive is thinnest. The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass, so avoid putting it on the very edge.
    • Secure a suction cup to the back cover, as close to the heated edge as possible, just under the Bixby button where the adhesive is thinnest.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass, so avoid putting it on the very edge.

    • If the phone's back cover is cracked, the suction cup may not stick. Try lifting it with strong tape, or superglue the suction cup in place and allow it to cure so you can proceed.

  4. Prop up the heated edge of the phone on something that is about 0.5 inches (13 mm) thick. This will angle the phone so that the opening tool is easier to insert. Lift the back cover's right edge with your suction cup, opening a slight gap between the back cover and the frame. This may require a significant amount of force. If you have trouble, apply more heat to further soften the adhesive, and try again. The adhesive cools very fast, so you may need to heat it repeatedly.
