Just looking for some more information about the screen ribbon placement on the Reuleaux. It is being posted in a FB group that the ribbon is doomed to fail because of the fire button putting slight pressure on it when pressed and the fix is to open it up and place the ribbon under the screen. Any thoughts about the validity of the problem/fix with DNA 200 experience. Thanks for the input.

Yes the ribbon shouldn't be user the fire button.it should slightly folded into kinda s shape and tucked under board. Search screen placemnet here and a few posts with pics will come up. Plenty of wismecs have failed and I'm sure plenty more will. Constantly flexing the ribbon cable will ruin it.

joined the relo fb group. it's true that the ribbon does slightly rub on the bottom of the fire button. took mine apart and noticed there is no s bend in the cable. un stuck screen from board, put s bend in ribbon, replaced, and done! potential crisis averted.

I thought I'd do mine here at work but don't have a small enough Philips screw driver. I did look at the tutorial and suggest putting tape across the up and down buttons and face plate prior to removing the face plate to hold them in place.
Here is the link to the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1057199624324956/

EDIT:
I do have a precision straight edge screw driver set here at work so I used it with no problem but I did need some assistance getting the screws started back in, that was accomplished using the same round tooth pick that I used to fold the screen back as a screw starter. Done, easy job.

I took near 10 minutes to do mine only because I'm paid by the hour (did it at work) LOL

take your batts out. take out the four bottom most screws, that will release your face plate. usb IS TIGHT inside of face plate so wiggle the face plate to detatch. place screws and buttons in a safe place as not to lose them. gently pry screen up from board. it's held on with sticky foam tape. make sure your zif sockect locking flap did not come unlocked when prying up screen(foam tape sometimes pulls this open when lifting up on screen do to the adhesive side of foam). get a toothpick or similar sized tool and put a gentle s bend in ribbon, no sharp abrupt bends. reseat the screen making sure your bend has retained it's shape. test fit face plate to make  sure everything lines up. re install face plate with buttons and replace screws followed by batts. done.  ATTEMPT THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE TAKING APART YOUR $160 DEVICE, THEN DO NOT DO IT! THAT IS WHAT YOUR WARRANTY IS FOR.

 IF DONE INCORRECTLY YOU WILL SEND YOUR SCREEN STRAIGHT TO HELL. KEEP IN MIND, WITH THE CHINESE OLED FACTORY EXPLOSION/SHORTAGE, THESE SPECIFIC OLED SCREENS ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES.
