This tutorial is aimed at helping you in teh process of disassembling your Toshiba Gigabeat mp3 player in order to replace the lcd screen.
I'm not responsible for anything going wrong :).
Before starting, turn the battery off (there is a tiny switch on the bottom of the player.
Remove the bottom plastic cover, which hides the screws (plastic cover), as well as the top one.
Then, remove the two tiny screws which hold the front cover. Note that they are no screws holding the top.
Finally, by gently sliding the cover upwards, remove the front metal cover.
Now, you can see the screen. It is connectd to the main board directly, through two ribbon cables.
The first one is pretty easy to remove. With anything flat, gently pull it up: it is connected through a simple plug to the main board.
Removing the second one is a bit more tricky: you have to lift the clip first, with a tiny flat screw driver for example, and the it will come out easily.
Remove the screen.
Now put the new one in place: connect both ends of the ribbon cable.
Put back the cover, the screws, the plastic covers.
Turn your player on :).
