    Hi
    any one has a tear down instruction for the TP go? I was looking at one of mine, and would like to replace the LCD.

    What I did.
    1. Removed the GSM/modem (2 pins there), some might have 2 screws.
    2. There are 4 TROX, and 1 (+) screw on the back to be removed
    3 There are 2 small 'wired flat cables' to be unlocked
    4. There are 3 (+) and 1 TROX screw to be removed for battery disassembly.

    After this I'm stuck..the board does not separate from the casing

    Looks like you're on the right way. I need to dig up my pictures to show you. Did exactly the same a couple of weeks ago with 3 Go's. I just need to look for the pictures.

    Screws: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10, 11. Some are Torx, some are Philips, varies per device.

    Antenna cables: 12 and 13, disconnect them and you can remove the Mini PCI-card.

    Flat cable 9: This is stuck the the LCD with adhesive, peel it loose carefully.

    Flat cable 7: Don't need to disconnect this one for the LCD!
    Flat cable 8: You need to disconnect this one, it's for the digitizer connected to the LCD. It's very delicate so be careful! Move the lever 90 degrees up and you can carefully slide out the cable.

    You should now be able to separate the LCD+Digitizer from the mainboard and case. I did this by holding the case and applying some pressure to the silver back of the LCD. It would then get loose. Be very careful with
    Flat cable 8 so that it DOESN'T get stuck because it will tear and you would need a new digitizer!


    After you were able to separate the LCD and the case about 1CM, you should be able to see where cable 14 is connected to the motherboard. It's a LCD connector somewhat similar to the one found at Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 0 Plus P6200 Touch LCD Connector Flex Ribbon Cable PCB | eBay.

    You can detach it be gently putting your finger in between the case and the cable. It should easily get out of the socket.

    Now you should have 2 separate parts. Case + mainboard and LCD+Digitizer

    Right....Pay more attention to it. It is easy job to replace LCD. It will be more difficult to replace Go's mainboard....
