Einleitung

Are the buttons on your Pebble Steel not responding anymore? This could result from the inner sensors being worn down. Replacing the inner Zebra ribbon may fix this problem.

    • Remove the back plate.

    The vibration motor is glued to the back plate. So remove the back plate a little bit, and look, if the motor sticks to it. Then first use a plastic opening tool to remove the vibration motor from the back plate.

    Same comment as Gauner: The vibration motor is glued to the back plate. DO NOT simply pull off the back plate as per the instructions else the two small wires that connect the motor will be damaged. I used a SIM tray pin tool to gently pry off the motor.

  2. The plastic frame is clipped inside the steel body with four clips, two each on the left and the right side of the watch, near the corners. You can stick a small screwdriver into the cutouts right above the clips and gently lever the plastic frame up, corner by corner. Once the clips are released, use a pair of tweezers to grab onto the black plastic frame and remove the internal hardware.

    • Adhesive on the back side of the battery holds the internal components to the front case.

    • Use tweezers or a plastic opening tool to disconnect the ribbon cable from the motherboard.

    During this step I broke off one of the contacts for the charge connector on the side of the motherboard. I'm not sure if it still works.

    [deleted] - Antwort

    I did the same - broke off the charge connector. The trick is to remove the plastic frame by pivoting out the 3-button side first, and put it back in by putting the one-button side with the charge connectors first. That way you’re not forcing those thin metal contacts past the frame. They don’t often break, but they did for me one time, and the watch will not charge after that.

Where do I get a new zebra ribbon? I can't fond any on the intetnrt?

Knocky ledwell - Antwort

I also can't find the zebra cable. Any information on this?

eliasp02 - Antwort

Generally I'm a big fan of iFixit and the tear down guides but this one is seriously lacking. Firstly, there is no indication of where to get replacement parts. I understand that Pebble do not have a solution to supply repair parts to the market meaning that a tear down is a pointless exercise as the item is junk if it's broken. There also aren't any third party suppliers that I can see. The next problem with this one is that during disassembly the button ribbon cable was torn and it seems no mention was made that it is now unusable. More photos are required and a big warning that the cable will tear easily when pulling it away from the adhesive.

Otherwise keep up the good work ifixit

This tutorial isn’t so good. It’s missing parts and where the !&&* you got a new zebra cable?

Emilio Jéldrez - Antwort

If the buttons are not working. The only way to fix the issue is to solder a small wire on the zebra ribbon. I did it and the buttons are working fine again.

Nicolas V. - Antwort

Here below the tutorial I followed to fix the buttons. Look at the picture to see how to solder the new wire on the ribbon.

I had to redo my fix another time because soldering was not good enough the first time

Nicolas V. - Antwort

Unforotunately the link is broken; could you please provide some more info or maybe even a picture of how exactly to solder the wire to on the ribbon? That would be great! Thank you.

Johannes Braun -
