Einleitung

Use this guide to replace the battery in your Samsung Galaxy S6.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions. Do not heat your phone. If needed, you can use a dropper or syringe to inject isopropyl alcohol (90+%) around the edges of the back cover to weaken the adhesive. Swollen batteries can be very dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution, or take it to a professional if you're not sure how to proceed.

This guide involves removing the rear glass. Removing the rear glass destroys the adhesive holding it in place. Follow this guide to reinstall the rear glass.

  1. Insert a paper clip or SIM eject tool into the hole in the SIM card slot on the power button side of the phone. Press to eject the SIM card tray.
    • Insert a paper clip or SIM eject tool into the hole in the SIM card slot on the power button side of the phone.

    • Press to eject the SIM card tray.

    • Don't press too hard or you may damage the SIM card tray.

    It really needs to be stated at the outset that if doing this repair to replace the daughterboard, there is a high likelihood that the display will be destroyed (even if you don’t break the display, the foil backing on it will likely be destroyed rendering it unusable). The PDF version of this guide states this at the beginning, but this online version does not.

    • For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.

    which temperature must be used for heating? Thx

    fbarletta - Antwort

    I found you need to be very patient when using the iOpener. It's worth taking your time, giving the heat time to work on the glue. When I finally got the battery out, there were some strips of glue left behind that I just cleaned off with some isopropanol before installing the new battery.

    By the way, I had to run the iOpener for longer in my microwave for it to get hot enough. When it was too hot to touch, I figured it was hot enough for the batteries.

    I didn't find this to be as hard as I had built it up in my mind to be; HOWEVER, saying that I need to say years ago I was the local Nokia service center in my town. But many years ago right after they got rid of analog times. Yeah. A classic installer/repairer mistake when starting something they haven't fixed or installed before is picking up the instructions, flipping through them; maybe even reading a section that is new-then tossing the instructions over the shoulder. "I got this." This usually comes right before something major gets broke. And I can tell you when you try to do it yourself and then mess it up horribly then take it to the repair shop. Well we called that "I can do it myself" syndrome and charged extra to put back together what they brought in in the box. Now knowing all this - I can't stress this enough because I am stupid, stupid, stupid. COVER YOUR SCREEN IN CLEAR BOXING TAPE AND READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION BELOW THROUGH TO THE END BEFORE EVEN ATTEMPTING THIS FIX. Take my advise.

    I didn't have an iOpener, so I used a wheat type heat bag. If you do this though, make sure you put a layer of plastic between your Mac and the bag, or you'll get condensation in places you don't want it.

    Martin Gray - Antwort

    I started out using the iOpener but switched to my wife's hairdryer. A heat gun or hair dryer proved to be much more convenient and is a time saviour. You can heat more and the glue becomes more fluid make the next steps with the opening picks much easier

    Ther first time you heat up the iOpener for this repair when its room temperature I had to heat it up for more than 30 seconds. I remember I had to heat it up for around 45 seconds. However, after that when you need to reheat it again during the repair 30 seconds will be enough.

    Get yourself a cherry pit bean bag the size of your iPad. Heat it, put the iPad on it for 3 to 5 minutes or so, reheat the cherry pit bean bag, again put your iPad on it. Then heat the iOpener and start working. The cherry pit bean bag will have to be reheated several times, but it will soften the adhesive so you have less problems with the iOpener

  4. Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.
    • Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.

    • Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst.

    • Never touch the iOpener if it appears swollen.

    • If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating. A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes.

    May I know the temperate limit about heating iOpener? (maximum 150 degrees Celsius?) thx so much.

    yamayhuang - Antwort

    I had to heat mine up for more than 30 seconds. After 30 seconds on high it was only warm. It had to keep trying different times and checking it until it got hot. I think the initial time that I put it in for was over a minute.

    DO NOT USE IN NON ROTATING MICROWAVE! It will pop a hole. I had it in for 45 seconds the first time. It wasn't very hot inside and I saw it started to leak on the paper towel I put under it. Just a fair bit of advice. I think I will just stick with the heat gun. Loud but useful.

    I heated mine up for 30 seconds, tested, then again for 30 seconds. It felt adequately hot. Leaving it on the left side, per the instruction, for a minute did not loosen the adhesive. I ended up pulling the suction cup hard enough to shadder the old screen. Moral of the story, I don't think it gets hot enough safely to have an affect.

    Travis Dixon - Antwort

    There is a clear problem here with the heating part using the iopener things....no details are given. Whoever is testing them needs to make it clear - What temperature does it need to be? And for which phone models, because they differ in what's needed. It's only £10-15 for a laser guided temp sensor unit, and the designers/repairers should have one of those already for doing these kinds of repairs. Explaining half a repair, is worse than not explaining at all :-(

    assortedrubbish - Antwort

    All phones/devices differ it’s unrealistic and unsafe to put a exact time/temperature needed to soften the adhesive. It’s really quite simple you warm the device evenly and in a controlled manner just enough to enable pry tools and picks to begin separating. Best tool in my opinion but again this is because I have experience is a hot plate and heat gun both of which are used at nearly the lowest settings and I can handle flat palming the plate for almost 10 seconds I leave the device to conduct heat until approx it’s about 110 at most 120 ish this will be plenty to soften all the adhesive if any problem areas I use heat gun while prying. Again you need go slowly and learn with a throw away phone

    30 seconds sure isn’t cutting it… 45 didn’t get the screen of my iPad air 2 to budge either… even after resting on the ipad for 4 minutes.

    60 seconds in the microwave, the iOpener burst.

    I’ll get a new one and try once more with heating it 45 seconds and repeat that for 30 minutes like others have said here. If that doesn’t work it’ll have to be the heat gun.

    Karl Marble - Antwort

    I can’t recommend the microwave. If the the iOpener becomes too hot, it bursts. Better put the opener in cooking water. Dry it and use it. Instead of an iOpener you can use hot/cool packs as well.

    Bernhard Keim - Antwort

    Trust the directions! I forgot and left it in the Microwave too long and after 1 minute I had Mt Vesuvius - the iOpener burst and spewed the goodies out. The problem is, the Digitizer can be damaged by a hot air gun, so I had to tough out and remove the glue the hard way. I made it … with lots of patience! Tough lesson.

    Larry Bennett - Antwort

    I also used a hairdryer. I used it on the low setting and I cut a piece of carboard to protect the rest of the screen. The iFixit tool and method is vert tedious and very time consuming in comparison. With the hairdryer method you can literally have the display apart in a few minutes. Using your other hand nearby the area you are heating it should be very hot but not enough to burn your hand. You only have to heat metal part of case near glass edge. If you have a cellular model then you need to be very careful because the black antenna area is plastic. So less heat and work your way up in adding heat just enough to separate around the area but not so much you melt the plastic!

    Fixrights - Antwort

    iOpener was the worst part of the kit. Followed directions for :30 in microwave and took 4 trips to the microwave to loosen adhesive on left side of home button. I thought I was figuring it out and it was working well… even set a timer to wait 10 minutes between heating it up. Was on the right side and was on my 12th heat up when it exploded in the microwave. My only tip is that if you set it clear side up, as soon as you see any bubbles or boiling in the liquid, STOP! If you put a pot holder over the iOpener and press slightly to make good surface contact, that seemed to help. I finished heating with a “Corn Sack” that held heat better than the provided iOpener.

    • If your glass is shattered, put packing tape over the entire panel to hold it together during the removal process.

    • Lay the heated iOpener over the rear panel for about two minutes to loosen the adhesive around the edge of the glass.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • Shift the iOpener to heat the remaining section of the panel for another two minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

    the way we do it at Get it fixed cellphone repair calgary is with a heat gun, wich is way easier than this, make sure to wear some gloves and dont worry to use to much heat as long as you point just to the back of the phone, (the back panel is thick enough to protect the logic board from over heat) instead of the usual blue plastic piece i sugest to use the thinnest metal razor knife and a business card so you can insert the business card and move it all around the frame, those blue plastic things are way too thick that will break the glass panel if you apply to much pressure

    I gave up on the hot bag after 4 heat and apply cycles. I was only getting the back up to 60c using an infrared thermometer. I switched to a harbor freight 1500w heat gun set to Low, moving constantly around the back, until the back read 95c. The back came off easily at that point.

    Nathan Wray - Antwort

    using a blowtorch on low heart for 3-5 seconds at close range also works

    Achi Namaratne - Antwort

    I found another site that said temps of 203F/95C were required to soften the glues. Once I started using those temps with my heat gun, as well as a tool I made by just cutting the flat front/back panel from a package of screws (any plastic package that has a flat panel will work) , I had the back off in no time. Had I continued to use the plastic pick shown in the instructions, I really doubt I would have gotten the back off since I couldn’t get enough force on the back from my suction cup. The thin package plastic acted almost like a knife as I moved it around the outside edge. WARNING: If you have to reheat the back, REMOVE THE PACKAGE PLASTIC!! It will start to melt from the heat of a heat gun. Good Luck!!

  7. Once the rear glass is hot to the touch, apply a suction cup near the bottom edge  of the glass. Lift on the suction cup to create a small gap underneath the rear glass, and insert an opening pick into the gap. Optionally, once the pick is inserted, you can add a few drops of isopropyl alcohol into the gap to help weaken the adhesive in the following steps.

    If the rear screen is cracked/smashed, you will not be able to use a suction cup to remove it. The suction could would not seal because of the cracks. I tried masking tape, 3M shiny HVAC tape, and others, and the suction could would not seal to those surfaces either.

    I ended up using the sharp point of the smudger to remove some shards of glass to get underneath the cover to leverage it up and out. Definitely use gloves and safety glasses if you have to do this.

    In order to get in more easily, I normally use the iFlex (the metal one) which is thin enough to create a little space, and then i insert a thinner plastic sheet, just like the default screen protector you might find on some huawei or xiaomi phones. That plus half a drop of alcohol should do the trick. Use caution and be very patient.

  11. To install new rear glass: Use tweezers to peel away any remaining adhesive from the phone's chassis.
    • To install new rear glass:

    • Use tweezers to peel away any remaining adhesive from the phone's chassis.

    • Clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%) and a lint-free cloth. Swipe in one direction only, not back and forth. This will help prep the surface for the new adhesive.

    • Peel the adhesive backing off of the new rear glass, carefully line up one edge of the glass against the phone chassis, and firmly press the glass onto the phone.

    • If you're reinstalling the old rear glass, or using rear glass without adhesive pre-installed, follow this guide.

    You should note that the adhesive strip may need to be fully removed from the frame in order to proceed with repairs. The adhesive on my phone covered all of the screws exposed in the next step.

    Sean Cruz - Antwort

    When I did my battery, the adhesive stayed almost 100% on the back glass and was still in good shape. What didn’t remain attached only lifted slightly and I was able to coax it back to its original location with tweezers. I didn’t bother to remove and replace the adhesive layer because mine was still good. I set the glass out of the way where it wouldn’t get dirt on the adhesive while I finished the battery swap. I added some additional heat (hair dryer) after reattaching the glass to make sure the adhesive made the best seal.

It’s about 4 inches of thicker plastic handle and 1 inch of steel blade. I would think if it was a sharp blade, it would be ideal for slicing through this type of adhesive. Like the dental floss idea also. Will try that on the next one.

    Rex Burrus - Antwort

    The steel blade tool is also great for removing the battery adhesive and back adhesive. Use like a dull chisel scraping up small chunks until done.

    Rex Burrus - Antwort

    Hi Rex,

    I think the tool you are thinking of is the Jimmy! It is indeed a versatile tool for many opening purposes. However, we do not recommend it for battery removal, as the dull metal blade can still slice through the battery pouch.

  17. Remove the battery from the phone. Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.
    • Remove the battery from the phone.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

    • To install a new battery:

    • Remove any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

    • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the phone, not directly onto the battery. The adhesive should go around the perimeter of the battery compartment, but not in the rectangular cutout in the center (which is actually the back side of the display).

    • Press the battery firmly into place for 5-10 seconds.

    Question!? If the screen is barley cracked at the coner, (2cm) of the phone, would it shatter thru this process!? Please let me know ASAP!?

    dominiquem1991 - Antwort

    again, mine a UK version was very sticky beware!!

    databeat1 - Antwort

    Yes the UK version is very well glued in. I recommend using a flat metal spudger and pushing it in from the bottom right side and then continue doing the same working up. This method seems to be the safest and only takes a minute or two

    I used a credit card and a bit of hair dryer to ease it out.

    adele - Antwort

    The top of the battery is important to position the cable. Too low and the cable will not reach.

    herbniek - Antwort

    how do you put it back together is the real question

Do ya THINK this process MIGHT void your warranty?

weird question , if its under warranty , why would anyone go thru so much trouble just to replace a %#*@ battery

limz555 -

Samsung warrenties are rubbish. Only had the phone 6 months and the charger point broke but bacause my phone had a small crack on it they voided the warrenty and wanted me to pay nearly £200 to replace the screen and back!!!! Now the battery has gone completely- phone is only 8 months old and no use. Safe to say won't be having a Samsung again.

Cathy Vickers -

In the United States it's actually against the law to void someone's warranty because they opened their device up, unless they make any unsupported modifications which are the sole causation of the damage/defect.

Christopher Engelhardt -

I have been trying for 3 days to get the phone open...using all of these instructions and tools. No luck! %#*@!

sailr - Antwort

What step are you stuck on?

Evan Noronha -

I've encountered phones where the IOpener was no match for all the adhesive. I succeeded by heating them with an iron that's made for shrinking monocoat covering around the wings of radio controlled model airplanes. You can get them at a good hobby shop for ~$15.00. It's shaped so you can heat around corners and comes with a sock to keep from scratching anything. That method always defeated the adhesive for me.

David Blythe - Antwort

If you are using a heat shrink iron as David commented above, keep it in contact with the phone for the shortest possible time required to soften the adhesive. At their highest settings these irons can reach over 200 degrees C (around 400 F) which is hot enough to damage flat cables, and distort or even melt plastic components inside the phone.

mlewus - Antwort

The recipe is quite good and easy to follow.

But you should buy the the adhesive film and use it to fix the body again because the old one you have to destroy to handle the screws.

This film you can by at Amazon for 7,50€ and it was delivered within 2 days.

Winfried Vogel - Antwort

If you’re really slow and careful (or really lucky like I was), the entire adhesive strip will stay with the glass and none of it stays on the mid-frame. I didn’t have to replace the adhesive because there was only one tiny lifted area on the glass that I was able to put back into the correct position using tweezers.

I did apply more heat around the mid-frame as well as the back-glass though. Since the mid-frame is metal, it sinks heat and the adhesive doesn’t melt until the frame gets hot enough.

Wayne Thomason -

Guys I had the same problem. For those who need to restart the S6 which is not responsive, try holding your power button and volume buttons simultaneously for more than 7 seconds before trying to remove battery which is btw mission impossible 15.

Akica - Antwort

Thanks Akica, for your tip. It worked! Had S6 for 18 months and never had any problems until now but didn't realise such a palaver required to take the cover of a phone!

Thanks for the guide! I haven't done it yet as I don't need to, I was just checking to see how hard it would be to replace my phone battery so I would know if I would really have to baby the thing haha...this is a great guide, which I would have no trouble following so my mind is at ease.

Clayton Boyle - Antwort

The replacement battery doesn't come with adhesive strips. How can I stick the replacement part down? Can I use those adhesive strips for iPhones? Or clear double sided tape?

Ben Adelie - Antwort

Either of those options should work. I'd be partial to using iPhone adhesive strips to make the battery easier to remove the next time around.

Do you if coaxial antenna cable from s6 edge works on s6? I managed to broke it and i dont find to buy for s6.

Tracke - Antwort

Hi i am looking for the battery for my Samsung S6 at the moment is out of stock so how long I have to wait?

Bobby Nguang - Antwort

Once you get to removing the battery there is some adhesive holding it in place. It is probably a good idea to replace this so the battery does not move around, I used a small amount of UHU all purpose glue.

DO NOT USE super glue as this damages the plastic covering of the battery.

David Foley - Antwort

Just did this today. If I had to add anything, you need a LOT of heat, and a VERY thin guitar pick to get between the glass and the midframe. I had to get the back panel to around 100c before the adhesive would give way, a lot hotter than I usually need to get most things apart (75-80c is the norm). Be careful not to burn yourself whilst you're doing this. Also, a larger battery will fit in here! Apparently S7 batteries can fit in the S6, but do your research online before you attempt this.

Stephen De Tomasi - Antwort

good post. useful information to phone users of Samsung s6

Chiru S - Antwort

Use a purpose built heating pad at 100 degree Celsius eg; https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Uyue-948...

first time I have attempted this for my Samsung S6 and worked perfectly. I used a hot air gun... at max 110 degrees Celcius. Took about 30 minutes. cheers!

Hi, would you recommend changing the battery or just buying a portable charging dock? I'm torn with what to do. I want to change the battery but don't want to damage the phone. Thanks.

Barry Cook - Antwort

Iopener is a joke. Not near enough heat.

Scott Conover - Antwort

So before I changed the battery my phone was on 60 percent..then once it was replaced with a new battery it was still at 60 percent..Can anyone tell me if thats good, bad, etc.

Jordan Sanchez - Antwort

Coincidence. Batteries ship without a full charge.

Wayne Thomason -

hi! ive just finished replacing the battery after using your method. it worked perfectly! however, now im having problems trying to get the screen on. i placed the phone on charge (as the new battery would need charging) and i attempted to turn it on after 30 mins. The first time i pressed the power button, the blue light at the top came on, the buttons at the bottom near the home button lit up and i heard the samsung start up sound, but nothing showed on the screen. the second time i pressed the power button (while battery was still being charged, the bottom buttons, again, lit up and the red charging indicator light remained on but i didnt get the samsung start up sound and the blue light as i did the first time. Is this just an issue with the battery not being charged still or is there possibly something wrong with the connector on my motherboard?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Tyranique Thurston - Antwort

Just swapped out my battery… took about half an hour for me too. I would recommend a hair dryer over the heat pad they give you. Put the hi dryer on high and steadily went over the back panel for about 3 to 4 minutes moving medium slow…. I used the adhesive that I bought for the phon that matches the frame, but t had to buy on amazon for it. Also, needed just a bit of double sided tape to put the new battery on in place.

Overall though it’s a great kit and instructions!!! Gonna have to do another Samsung 6 soon, but the cost for the kit andbatteries is way cheaper than anew phone or the $120 to have someone do it for me. Though I am technically very capable to do the repair, anyone should be fine doing it if they can use a screw driver and just take their time.

Scott Boskovich - Antwort

What the &&^&, are you joking with this $@$*? If you need to remove a phone's battery, it should just be a hands-only process, not some hour long ordeal with specific tools that are useless for any other job. What brainless douche came up with such a pain in the ass design for a phone? Ridiculous!

sgt ROCK - Antwort

This was super easy to do. The kits on Amazon fit perfectly. Used my hobby iron and went around the edges for about 3 minutes set at 100C (212F) and everything came off real easy with no damage to anything. Took about 40 minutes to do, which included cleaning up the old adhesive and the phone before reassembling. Well worth the effort versus buying a new phone, the new battery is just like the day I bought it.

HockeyDad - Antwort

The battery swap is complete, but the screen now is only black, with a momentary flash of a green box when the power button is pressed. Holding the power button/volume button simultaneously has no effect. Could this be a broken screen problem?

Michelle - Antwort

Hair drier didn’t work that well for me and I ended up breaking the back, but at £3 on eBay I considered this a small price to pay for less messing about and a quicker fix if you buy it in advance

Tezza de Grey - Antwort

You can put the S7 Edge battery into the S6. Fit exactly perfect!!! You can read some review serching in internet

Daniel Yaben - Antwort

Hello. My S6 felt in the sink (full of water). Unfortunatly the rear facing camera glass (from the frame) was broken. Couple of water got inside. Already passed a few days, putted the S6 to dry (even in rice), but it still doesn’t power on. Pretty sure it short circuited somewhere. I’m considering replacing the battery and the rear camera. Do you think I have any chance?

presi - Antwort

I also wouldn’t have bought this phone if I’d known how hard it is to do the routine maintenance of replacing the battery. Since this is rated as difficult, I was afraid to attempt it myself. I took a new battery and adhesive strips to a local repair shop, SecurePro in SLO, where someone who’s done this many times turned it around perfectly in under half an hour. No more range anxiety!

Cynthia Replogle - Antwort

Wasn’t too bad- my only problem / tip (?)- the rear glass on my phone had semi-shattered, so prying the rear cover off caused a few more breaks in the glass- and crucially, the glass seperated from the opaque film backing rather than from the phone. meant having to remove the backing and glue. Which was fine- I didn’t mind having the rear glass broken before but now it is transparent! which actually looks super cool. Great guide.

Hugh Roche Kelly - Antwort

Out of curiosity - I replaced the battery with the kit from IFixIt - production date of new battery was early 2018.

Battery is now used for 2 months - and has a capacity of close to 0. So it last for 1/4 day without any interaction; phone typically drops dead at around 40% of the battery. A reboot then shows 0% battery.

Has anyone seen similar behavior.

I’m wondering if replacing the battery jet again makes sense - or if all S6 batteries (even the replacment kits) are just crap.

Nico - Antwort

Hi @gohico, sorry to hear that you’re having battery issues! We have a one year warranty on batteries, which you can read more about on our Warranty Page. You can contact our support team at help.ifixit.com and they’ll help you out with a fix or a replacement battery.

ottima guida…Grazie

Vito - Antwort

I replaced the battery this afternoon. All went fairly smoothly although getting the back off was a bit of a struggle.

Only trouble is now my screen is going purple. First a few spots but seems to spread like an oil stain.

Has anyone got any suggestions what might be causing this and if it is reversible?

Marc de Bolster - Antwort

this job sucks. shattered my back glass and the front glass began separating from the front screen…I was able to salvage it though and got the battery replaced. but the phone looks like complete trash now (and it was in really good condition). New back is purchased. Not going to mess with the front since it’s working and the glass isn’t broken.

Jerry H - Antwort

Thanks for the help. My phone is about two and a half years old and the weak battery finally died. Time for a new battery.

Steven Mackey - Antwort

How is this difficult? Seriously, if you can’t even manage a simple procedure like this then you shouldn’t even be attempting this replacement. Take it to a repair shop and give it to someone who knows what they’re doing.

Clems - Antwort

I’ve tried about 6 different battery makes now and they are all total crap and none of them are even as good as the 4 year old Samsung battery which now barely lasts half a day.

All the ‘Genuine Samsung Battery’ are complete lies.

Don’t buy cheap batteries. There are plenty of high-quality replacements out there, including the ones sold on this site, which are backed by a 1-year warranty.

I must have what it takes to be a cell phone technition. What this article describes as difficult was extremely easy for me. This is my second phone repair . Thank you for such easy to follow directions.

Doug Ireland - Antwort

Clear and thorough guide. Forewarned by the difficulty level, with care and patience I have given my second-hand S6 a new lease of life.

This is the first ifixit kit and guide I have tried and you will definitely be my first port of call for tech repair guidance in future.

Lorn - Antwort

I am going to try this soon as the battery in my s6 is slowly dying. It will not stop me from getting a Samsung again as they are the best phones out there.
