I tried to separate the glass and the film using a cutter knife, but at this stage I have no teeth at all. In the Galaxy S8, it seems that a film is stuck on the inside of a transparent glass panel and color is applied by paint on it.

First of all spray the solvent on the paint ... ...

When rubbed with a spatula, the paint dropped spectacularly. But the film still remains.

Although it is colorless and transparent, the transparency of the glass is impaired by the film being affixed. Therefore, cut the film and peel off the film.

Finally wash it thoroughly with water, a finished transparent back glass panel.

As you can see, the manufacturer and model name remain on the panel.

When attached to the main body, it became a really mechanical atmosphere. However, a coil for wireless charging which covers the most part interferes if it is disturbing.

The problem is that the temperature sensor of the battery malfunctions and it is judged that "the temperature is too low" and can not be charged.

The cause was found to be due to the fact that the electrodes visible to the right were not in contact with the 3 + 4 connectors visible on the tip of the green bar. The electrode was integrated with the parts of the charging coil.

Since there is no point in returning the coil which it removed to its original position, only the electrode part is cut off with scissors.

The battery's sensor was malfunctioning just because this small part was not installed.

When screwing the cut parts ......

I was able to charge it safely. However, it was not charging wirelessly, of course using a USB cable.
