Step#2 To remove the SIM card tray from your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra follow these steps
- Locate the SIM card tray slot at the bottom of your S22 set.
- Insert the SIM eject tool or a paperclip into the small hole next to the tray.
- Apply gentle pressure to push the tool into the hole until the tray pops out slightly.
- Carefully pull the tray from the slot using your fingers or the tool.
- Remove the SIM card from the tray.
Handle the SIM card tray carefully to avoid bending or damaging it. If you accidentally put the SIM eject tool in the wrong hole like a microphone hole don’t worry! You probably didn’t harm the microphone. Just be more careful next time and insert the tool in the correct slot when removing the SIM card tray.
Step#3 Remove the Stylus
Press the button at the bottom of the stylus to activate the ejection mechanism. This will cause the stylus to come out of its slot partially. Carefully remove the stylus from the device ensuring a gentle and steady motion. Keep the stylus safe to avoid misplacement during the screen replacement process. These steps will allow you to proceed with the screen replacement smoothly and effectively.
Step#4 Start Heating
Begin heating the right side of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra using a heat gun or hair dryer. Apply heat evenly and gradually to loosen the adhesive that secures the screen. Make sure to keep the heat source at a safe distance to prevent damage. The heat will help soften the glue and make separating the screen from the phone easier. Take your time and ensure that the heat is evenly distributed along the right side of the S22 Ultra. This step is crucial in preparing the screen for removal and replacement.
Step#5 Remove the Cover By Using the Opening Tool
Attach a suction handle to the back cover near the right edge’s center. Apply firm and steady upward force to create a gap between the cover and frame. If you encounter resistance reapply the heat or follow the heating instructions to prevent overheating. Once a gap is created carefully insert an opening pick into the hole. Move the selection along the edge applying gentle pressure to separate the back cover from the frame gradually. Take your time and be cautious not to damage any components. This step allows access to the interior features and prepares the mobile phone for further disassembly.
While You Wait For The Glue To Soften Remember The Following
- The back cover is stuck to the phone’s edges with strong adhesive.
- The adhesive is toughest in the bottom right and top left corners.
- Being aware of this will help you handle the phone carefully during disassembly.
- Take extra caution when working around these corners to avoid any accidental harm.
- Remembering these points you can confidently replace the screen without any issues.
Slice The Right Adhesive
Carefully cut through the adhesive by sliding the pick back and forth along the right edge.
To prevent the adhesive from resealing insert the pick near the right edge’s bottom.
Doing this ensures that the back cover remains separated and can be easily removed for screen replacement.
This step is important in maintaining the goodness of the adhesive and avoiding any unnecessary damage.
With the pick in place you can proceed with confidence to the next steps of the screen replacement process.
Heat the Bottom Edge Of The Galaxy S22 Ultra
Apply heat to the bottom edge of the Galaxy S22 Ultra using a heat gun or dryer. Gently move the heat source back and forth to distribute the heat evenly. Be cautious not to overheat the mobile as excessive heat can damage the components.
Separate The Corner Adhesive
Carefully insert a second opening pick into the bottom right corner of the device. Adjust the angle of the pick to match the curved edge and gently rotate it around the corner. Practice caution when slicing around the corners as the glass in this area is extremely delicate. Take your time to ensure the glass does not crack during the process.
Use the opening pick to slide along the bottom edge carefully. It is then reaching the bottom left corner to cut through the adhesive. Keep the pick at the bottom left corner to prevent the glue from sticking again. This will ensure a smooth and successful removal process.
Heat The Left Edge
Now gently give heat to the left edge of the back cover using a heat gun or dryer. This will help soften the adhesive and make separating the cover from the device easier. Take care to apply heat evenly and avoid overheating.
To ensure a smooth separation and prevent damage repeat the heating process. Use the opening tool on all sides of the phone. This step-by-step approach will help you separate the corners smoothly. It will also minimize the risk of harm to the device. Take your time carefully to achieve the best results during the disassembly process.
Step#6 Removing The Back Cover
Gently grasp and lift off the back cover of your phone. If the cover is stuck carefully insert an opening pick along the edges to release it completely. This step ensures safe access to the internal components for further repairs or replacements. Make sure to handle the back cover with care to avoid any damage.
Now that the back cover is removed you can proceed with the screen replacement process.
Step#7 Remove Wireless Charging Coil
