Einleitung

This guide will enable you to remove the screen of your Microsoft Surface Book.

If the glass is cracked already, tape across the entire screen with packaging tape to keep the glass together. You can get leverage by using the speaker grill openings as an entry point and the back of the LCD for more strength (since the glass will just shatter if it's already cracked).

    • Turn off your Surface Book and detach the display.

    • Heat and apply an iOpener or use a hair dryer or heat gun to heat the perimeter of the display, in order to soften the glue securing it.

    • Use a suction cup or iSclack or pull up on the edge of the display, and create a slight gap between the display glass and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • Use only gentle force with the pick, and keep the display very hot (slightly too hot to touch). If you use too much force and/or allow the glue to harden, the glass will crack.

    Once you insert an opening pick, you can use a few drops of Acetone around the edge to loosen the glue. I found this much easier than keep reheating the iOpener and possibly cracked the display.

    Bad idea to use acetone with these types of devices because of the plastic parts that can become either damaged or outright melted by the solvent. (Especially the ribbon cables and connections) You are better off using isopropyl alcohol or nothing. Easy enough just to avoid this idea completely. Not to mention that it is possible to cause the display to shatter due to thermal shock when you apply the solvent to a heated surface. Good luck to those that try anyway.

    Rick Sanchez - Antwort

    The iOpener did nothing to loosen up the glue. Had to use a hair dryer for almost 40 minutes to get it softened up enough to open.

    david alexis - Antwort

    Took at least 30 mins with a hair dryer to get the screen off. That 20 min completion time is total BS.

    my screen is 25% off

    Be EXTRA careful when running the opening pick around the bottom right portion of the screen. This is where the touch controller attaches to the display, and the ribbon cable is only about a quarter inch away from the edge and is easy to rip out.

    Very important hint!

    Having recently been inside a Surface Book I purchased via Facebook marketplace, consider the screen a “cost” of replacing the battery and the pressure is off of you. I tried VERY hard not to break the glass, but…still happened. With that out of the way, I successfully replaced the screen, battery, and also battery in the base. Microsoft should be ashamed of this device. All that engineering effort built into their crappy hinge, only to have the batteries fail prematurely. Also, the mechanism to release the screen from the base sucks real bad. Mine doesn’t work, I carry a paper clip with me to unleash the tablet mode. Pathetic. Thank GOD I picked this up second hand for a few hundred bucks. Pity the folks that paid two grand or more for this turd.

    I just tried for over an hour and a half with heat packs and a dyson hair dryer, and got absolutely nowhere… I even bought the iSclack and had ifixit openers at the ready. I guess I’ll try a heat gun next (after I buy one). If anyone has any other suggestions, it would really be appreciated… I’m so disappointed in Microsoft right now.

    Trevor Brown - Antwort

    I got my computer open after completely abandoning the “step 1” instructions here. The hot pack (iOPener) and suction cups (iSclack) were completely worthless for me, and did absolutely nothing. Instead, simply get yourself a tool with a very thin metal knife, such as the “Jimmy” sold here on iFixit.

    Use a heat gun to get a section of the screen nice and hot (I went with ~160 degrees Fahrenheit) then insert the Jimmy vertically in between the screen and the metal frame (a tiny gap.) Then, carefully flip it horizontally to get between the tape and the screen. After this, carefully slide the knife along the edge while using a heat gun to hover right over the place the knife will next be (I used gloves to prevent burning my hands.) Do NOT insert the knife more than a half an inch into the gap, or you might damage your screen (stay within the black bezel range.)

    This will QUICKLY, EASILY, and SAFELY get the screen off.

  1. Use the pick to slice all the way around the perimeter of the display to separate the glue. Do not insert the opening pick too far into the display or you may cause damage to internal components.

    • Gently raise the display but don't fully detach it until the cables underneath are disconnected.

    Metal plates are difficult to remove. Must pry them off.

    Remove only the plug to the far right leave the ribbon cables and the clips alone What was confusing in this photo it looked like he removed the large ribbon clip, he did not. I did and busted the clip that secured the cable. I had to buy a new touch sensor board.

    Don’t make this mistake, look carefully before you do. Stop before going to far.

    James Foley - Antwort

    I think I could have done this in less than 30 minutes since the computer back was bulging with the batteries swelling. To my surprise, the batteries were stuck to the back with black adhesive so the connector popped loose. Fearing that I had screwed up the connector, I plugged the computer into the new battery pack and found everything was working and the battery showed a full charge. TaDa. With my wife’s help holding the back, I used a hair dryer and wooden spatula to remove the old battery pack. Rather than trying to apply more adhesive to the edges of the back I used black electrical tape to keep it in place.

It is very unlikely you will get this screen off without breaking it. Luckily, my customer only wanted the SSD out of the device so he didn't care if I damaged it. This screen is crazy fragile and the glue is very very strong. Do not do this job thinking you will likely not break the screen, unless you have done it before.

Kevin Yaniak - Antwort

The only way to remove it without breaking it is to use good scotch tape and completely cover the screen with a minimum 4 layers of tape. This will keep the screen intact - but you still have to be very careful.

Michael Griffiths - Antwort

That’s definitely not the only way. I just did it with a guitar pick and heat pad. After doing a ton of Surface Pro 3’s, I think this one is actually pretty easy in comparison.

austin -

I needed 3 hours for this, Did this the first time. There is everything glued. and real hard to not break the screen.

Dennis Reimer - Antwort

Can you put the screen back on after removing it?

Alex Shinnerl - Antwort

Yep, clean the old adhesive and apply some Tesa 4695 or 61395.

Ben -

If you have a cracked screen already and want to do this to replace with a new screen, is it as hard to accomplish?

Daniel - Antwort

Did you manage to do it?

felipemb997 -

Where can you actually buy a replacement screen?

Bahadir Malkoc - Antwort

Repair Parts Plus sells the screen with the option to buy the tools required to pry your old screen off and an option to buy a screen protector.

Is the back light/lcd for the Surface Book sealed? If I used isopropyl alcohol to weaken the adhesive, would it stain the back or anything? If anyone knows, please reply.

Victor Gonzalez - Antwort

Seems as though there was another component that damage at the top of the screen when battery expanded and popped screen. Looks like maybe wifi antenna. Is this true and is that easy to add to the repair?????? Like it was under the factory adhesive

Peter Plott - Antwort

Additionally, is the “processor” on the back of the screen removable? Can’t seem to find a screen with this attached. Not sure if that is the NVidia controller or what roll it plays. Thanks for any help.

Peter Plott - Antwort

Heat gun helps.

smithjamesd - Antwort

My screen is separating from the chassis on my Surface Book - 1st gen. It is loose most of the way across the bottom and right side. The screen is still intact. I would like to complete the removal process and then reattach the screen. Is there a recommended adhesive?

Scott Robinson - Antwort

Hi. My surface book One, has what seen 4 burn spots. 2 on top and 4 on each side. So what is the issue here? Battery burning out?

A

Arun K. Raina - Antwort

The discoloration that appears on the Surface Book1 display is a direct result of the battery packaging expanding like a balloon causing pressure under the LCD screen thus making the display flex and bulge; as if you were to put a small airbag inside the unit and inflated it.

The battery needs to be replaced.

Rick Sanchez -

which glue did you use to stick the screen?

P Kumar - Antwort

Surface Book One, the side of teh screen (LCD think cover) has just came off, I think I will just stick it in, but which Glue was/is used?

P Kumar - Antwort

iFixit tutorials are great, but why do they always stop at the removal stage? Would be great to know which adhesives are recommended for the new screen!
