⚠️ Before disassembling, do not forget to turn your gadget off.
Disassembly/Repair of the mobile device Apple iPod Touch (6th generation) (iPod Touch 6G A1641, A1574) with each step description and the required set of tools.
Step 2. Open the display module
⚠️ Pay attention! Disassembly has a maximum 3rd difficulty because the process begins with the disassembly of the display module. If you have no experience or are not sure of your skills, we strongly recommend that you contact a specialized service center.
We recommend using a special heating device such as a separator machine, heat gun, or heating mat. It will simplify the process. You can use a home hairdryer, but you will have to make a nozzle by hand or have a suitable one in the kit to gently heat and concentrate the heat flow in the right place.
ℹ️️ The surface of the display module must be heated to soften the adhesive underneath. The approximate heating temperature is 50° C / 125° F.
Use a thin plastic film or pick for separation. To facilitate the process, you can use isopropyl alcohol. It is often most difficult to pass the tool between the parts to be divided. Choose the far edge from the FFC cables or buttons.
Do not use a lever or any force for separation that could damage the elements inside.
The process can be seen in our video entirely so as well as in detail, at the end of the instructions.
Step 6. Unscrew the screws
Using a screwdriver (Phillips 1.5 mm PH000), unscrew three screws securing the motherboard.
ℹ️️ Be sure to note the location of the screws before disassembling. When assembling the device, screwing the screw in the wrong place may damage the device or its part. To avoid damage, the removed screws and individual pieces (as gaskets or brackets) must be laid out in the appropriate order, or the screws and their holes in the phone must be marked with colored markers.
Step 7. Disconnect the connectors
Carefully unglue the front camera, disconnect the connectors (both are connected from the inside of the motherboard), and remove the display module.
Step 8. Remove the rear camera
Lift the motherboard enough to reach the connector, disconnect the connector and remove the rear camera.
⚠️ The rear camera may be glued with adhesive tape, so be careful.
Step 10. Remove the motherboard
Carefully remove the cable with a motherboard, battery, front camera, charging port. ⚠️ There is a thing, the battery connector soldered tough, so all parts will be live. Consider it and do disassembly or repair carefully.
