[Q] Screws in my Samsung Galaxy S2.
Fellow XDA-Developers Members,
I know this is going to sound like a stupid question, but the only stupid question is the one that isnt answered, right ??!! I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 SCH-R760 that I got from a friend when my previous phone died as a loaner. The only problem is that her kids messed up the charging port, and you have to hold the cord a certain way to charge the phone, and even then, it doesnt always charge correctly (charges for hours and hours overnight and then says it only has 10% power, sometimes fully charges, sometimes doesnt charge at all). Rather than to sit here and mess with it everyday, I looked up the part costs to replace the USB Charging Port, and it is really cheap !! I decided to try and take the phone apart just to familiarize myself with the process, and maybe see if there was a loose connection I could fix myself rather than to be without a phone until the parts got to my rural area on an island in Alaska !! Well, I went on Youtube to find a video to take the phone apart, and all of the videos insist that there are seven (7) screws underneath the battery cover that I have to take our before using a soft plastic prying tool to remove the backing, but it doesnt look the same-there are only six (6) screws, and I cannot find anymore, even underneath these little black film-like strips that are there (I carefully removed them and then replaced them exactly as they were) !! And whats worse, the phone doesnt have a split in the middle of the side of the casing-you have to pry between the edge of the back casing and the screen !! I am at a loss here because right now I dont have the funds to buy a new phone, so can anyone tell me why I cant seem to get it apart (the seven (7) versus six (6) screws issue, and what could possibly be hanging it up; I tried to open it and it seemed like the headphone jack circuit board was hanging it up, but there is no more screws !!), why the video shows seven (7) screws instead of sic (6) on all of the instructional videos and why the phone doesnt split in the middle on the side like all the videos show them doing on the instructional videos illustrate !! I would greatly appreciate any and all help/advice !! Thanks !!
