PlaystationQUAD: how to take apart the screen?
Evan Englezos: Thank you, worked for me, did not remove the whole motherboard, just the
bottom right screw on the motherboard.
Hama A: Good video thanks, but I had to undo the back again for I found two extra
screws!!! you forgot to screw the charging port flex cable back :) or may
be it was unscrewed already for i didn't see you unscrewing the charging
port after you took the back housing off!! also u don't need to remove the
motherboard and camera...etc
Viktor TheCrasher: lol why does he remove so much he doesnt need to remove ?!
Bob Christopher: CAUTION! - Choose the correct part when ordering this. Before
ordering, take off the back as instructed in this video and look at the USB
board on your phone. Note what the microphone looks like, a little to the
left of the USB port when turned over . When you are looking at photos of
this circuit board at the site where ever you shop, make sure you get a
board with matching mic. Don't be fooled by a rev # that might be higher
than yours, thinking you are getting an improved version. Get the one that
You will see two different types, one mic has a small gold metal
enclosure, and the other has a larger gray plastic enclosure (like in this
video), and they will both be said to work with the S2 i777 and i9100. I
made the mistake (fortunately only a $6.00 and 20 minutes of my time wasted
mistake) of getting the gold version when mine was gray. The board with
the wrong mic worked fine, and corrected all the problems I had been having
with my S2, but when I went to use the voice to text function, I had to
literally yell into the mic from one inch away to get it to work. And even
then it was not nearly as accurate. People I called also said they had some
trouble hearing me unless I spoke loudly. So I spent 8 bucks for the
matching one, installed it today, and everything is back to normal. Lesson
learned. But still a very cheap repair for a vexing issue.
Oh, and as others have said, there is no need to remove the entire
motherboard and all those extra parts at the top. At least not with the
i777. Just unplug the 3 ribbon cables on the right side, the one at the
upper right top, and the antenna wire. You only need to left up the
motherboard a bit near the bottom where it covers the USB ribbon cable,
enough to grab the USB plug, and begin lifting that board out from
underneath. The USB cable has a peel and stick coating on the back holding
it down, but it's the removable kind, just be gentle. You can stop
unplugging and removing stuff at about the 2:43 part of the video, and skip
to the 3:50 section where he actually starts to remove the USB board. I
have now done this process three times - once as a trial run, once with the
wrong board, and finally again today with the right one. Be careful
lifting the bottom of the motherboard. Go only high enough to pull off the
USB cable, and you should be fine. Unless the i9100 is constructed
differently, it should be the same with that.
Thank you ETrade Supply, for this great video.
kattysat: My opinion on the guy removing a lot more than needed to replace the
charging module is that it's probably helpful for others who want to
replace other parts in the phone apart from just the charging port...
although the video description would be better titled 'Galaxy S2 complete
disassembly' or something along those lines.
jsamuelmejia: Loved the second song and the vid! I hope I can do the same with my phone!
bell lab: ok, I didn't do all this because I just sent it in to Samsung because
replacing the port may not be the real issue people... beware.. and you can
see from other comments soldering issues/not needing to remove motherboard
but lastly.. I'm sorry but why did you torture me with that first song??
Snowpuff420: no good horrable music mute function broken couldnt watch vid it was
makeing my ears bleed
MadMike41: Didn't remove the motherboard but helped a lot! Thanks
HEBANOS: is not good guide because person did say nothing before removing from
inside panel than is conected to volume button or stop button i damage my
volume buttons ;/ !!!
infi coelho: y did u do such a long cut to remove the charging connector dude???
PC-Alex: do you really need to take everything out? surely you can leave the
motherboard and stuff near the top of the phone in?
Ltnsmrt: Do you REALLY have to take the camera thing and everything else on the top
of the phone to replace only the charging port? Forgive me, but it just
seems to me that is not in its way. Thanks for the video... great help to
disassemble the phone.
Martin MB: Hi what's name artist of the second song? please
shiningturtle: Worked great, thanks!
As others already said, you don't have to disconnect the motherboard
entirely, just loosen the bottom part and the cameras etc can stay
connected as well.
Jarek klatt: dose someone know were i can find a charging /USB port for a Samsung galaxy
S2 in Saskahewan?
ChasingSquirrels: music is annoying no offense it's best to have a voice over while opening
it instead of annoying music
gtagame6000: That is some horrible/annoying music.
Vibin Panakkal: Excellent guide.
A couple of things...
I had an S2 (Indian version) the component placement is a little different.
But no issues.
To replace the charging dock, you needn't take off the whole motherboard.
Just gently lift the bottom part and take out the cable. Easy !
Ivan Ramos: Can I swap the cameras of Ace Duos and S2? It is compatible?
Sam Barnes: Thanks for this, my phone has been saying it's charging when it isn't and
discharging itself rapidly by illuminating the screen when nothing is
pressed. It was also turning itself on when it was off.
All these problems have been resolved by this one simple fix.
MercilessDragon: Was taking everthing apart necessary?
Kuqih: Wow, thanks now my phone is ever more broke
Robert Ojeda: +ETrade Supply do you have a link to this item? i can seem to find it
vik kash: +etradesupply I have the tmobile model and will the t989 fit the i989
Neon Fluffycakes: Omg it worked! Thank you for this video! ^w^
Fred Saarmets: thanks! its working now! :)
Alon Snir: 2:50 when motherboard been removed another step is missing! On my S2 the
volume control and the power control parts are glued to the body. So when i
tried to remove it, i had to pull it hard until released and have cut two
of the wires from the sound control. Now the volume up button doesn't work.
I will have to solder it. For now volume control widget on the home screen
installed as a work around. Be aware.
Here is the missing step. Before you remove the motherboard, check if
volume and power controls are not glued to the body, if yes then gently
pull them out with tweezers.
Other than that great guide!
Ibas Paw: Thanks! My S2 works again! This helped much and the repair part was cheap!
shuffle C: does anyone frickin explain by speaking, i dont want to listen this crapty
music i want help
Moriah Reign: H E Y ! What is the name and artist of the first song??? PLEASE!
richard lambert: I may as well follow this vid and put all the removed parts in a paper bag
and drop them into the bin along with the phone then go to the shop and buy
a new one. Thats just me though.
binhdo2008: Thank you for sharing with us. It is working now my S2.

Chris White: Hi,
I replaced my charging port and it keeps saying emergency calls only and
sometimes it says no service, does anyone know what the problem might be?
Did I mess up that white cable? I double and triple checked to see it was
connected properly and everything seemed fine, do you think the white cable
has been messed up or is there a problem with the charging port?
Daniel Lindsay: Thanks for the video.
Johnny Renegade: IT was SO EASY thanks.
Omar Bajaber: Is this compatible with I9100G model?
Ali Taher: Hello, OI have changed the charging port and its working but now neither

at the bottom. And the background music..i that's just a reflection of
Jody Billings: After replacing the charge port the home button and nav buttons don't work ?
Przemysław Uss: Thx a lot I just change the charging port!
Loving Life and the Ocean: Great video, i wish i had looked it up before ordering the part somewhere
else, at any rate i have bookmarked your site and will use to repair phones
in the future as well as like you on social media. Thanks!
Ibas Paw: I need a similar screwdriver, where can I get it?
ilum75: Fixed my phone because of this video.

and they should identify it easily.
Davie Ashworth: Oh My Gutos. You must share the name of this song!!!
