  1. It depends on which Surface Pro 3 you have, it seems. Many of the repair videos I have seen state that there are screws underneath the feet that need to be removed which removes the display and under is the SSD slot. There's no heating needed to remove the display

  2. NOWADAYS COMPANIES ARE MAKING THEM DISPOSABLE TOO HARD FOR UPGRADES AND REPLACEMENTS OF PARTS HARD TO SERVICE, BATTERY INCLUDED DEVICES NEEDS THE BATTERY TO REPLACED AFTER ATLEAST 2 YEARS RAM AND SSD CAN ALSO MALFUNCTION ATLEAST THESE KINDS OF PARTS SHOULD BE EASILY REPLACEABLE OR FOR UPGRADES

  3. Ouch! 😢 I love my pro 3 still, and despite having other, newer computers around I still like some features. I need to deep clean or replace the cooling fan and now I'm a little scared of the proposition. The fan is a little loud nowadays, and makes awful noises when I move the computer 😬. The air intake is easy to find, but there is no direct access to blow air backward through the system

  4. HELP!!! I have a Surface Pro 4 with a DEAD BATTERY. Before I tackle cracking open this thing, can I even GET a new battery for it? Can you provide a SOURCE for the battery? I bought two of these units. I loaned one to someone who was designing art files for me to cut, but they pulled a fast one and returned a DIFFERENT Surface Pro to me, in the original case with the serial number laser etched onto it. I want to try to resurrect this thing if possible, but it will not even show any signs of life.

  5. Hope to see ever a option to just replace the ssd, because they seems like to using a removeable ssd, instead of the emmc crap, and the ssds Going bad, and when its bad u cant replace it 🤷‍♂️ but i dont think they Will ever Made an cover to replace that thing, without cracking the whole tablet open

  6. If you are replacing the screen, it's a no-brainer that it doesn't matter whether you'll break it some more when trying to remove it. I can't stress enough. Be REALLY careful around the camera area. In fact, you're better off breaking that section in small glass pieces. If I were you I would use the least amount of glue you can get away with when putting it back together as the SSD and battery can be available on eBay. WEAR EYE PROTECTION!!

  7. Great Video guys very good repair. Like a service repair technician I can suggest you using a plastic sludger or a credit card ,so that way will be harder to damage the glass screen panel. All the best and thanks again for that video! You are great! 🙂

  8. Can someone help….My Surf 3 is cooked….had it for 5 years, worked flawless. All I want to do is remove the SD card and motherboard (I think), trying to recover files that I saved on C: drive. Suggestions??

  9. I read somewhere that you can use a milling machine or a dremel with an end mill to cut open the back of the surface pro so you can replace the SSD. Has anyone tried that?

  10. Microsoft, as the name makes it clear, is not a hardware manufacturer. Surface is crap. Period.

    I managed to disassemble this device without breaking the glass. It was quite easy. However, Surface can't be repaired when they are dead. And they die. This is because Microsoft is not a hardware manufacturer. Buy something else. But avoid Microsoft under any circumstance.

  11. Thanks to people like CNET for making this type of informative videos and YouTube so that one make better choices when buy a device. Too bad for Microsoft for making things that later can become a pain in the brain; will certainly choose a different manufacture that offers a better quality product. Thanks CNET.

  12. Quick tip to whoever is watching this vid to repair his own surface.. To remove the screen without cracking it keep (or install one if you don't have one already) the screen protector on it.. It supports the glass making it tougher and less prone to bending to a break.. Also use thin plastic cards (like plastic playing cards) .. not ones like credit cards or metal plyers like in the video as those would put much stress on the glass because their small size concentrates the force on a small area, their material is rigid and isn't forgiving and the large heavy metal handle pivoting on the edge of the case creates a force on the glass that's gonna break eventually.. So using such tools is basically a formula for failure and it would be surprising not to fail..
    Anyway heat and patience are your best friends.. Don't lose patience mid-process and ruin everything even if you're goind 1cm per hour.. You can always leave and come back later to it when you're relaxed.. It's better than ruining the poor thing..
    Also don't pry it will stress the glass and eventually break it. . Instead try to steadily and slowly slice the adhesive underneath the screen with the thin plastic cards i described earlier..
    And lastly, dont start at a corner.. It's best to start at the bottom where the keyboard connectors are.. It really depends on the technique but it's the least place to cause stress on the glass..
    And finally.. Wish you good luck.
