    I had to use a spudger to take off the camera. Not an easy job since it was glued quite well.

    Jan Boonen - Antwort

    "mild" adhesive?? Camera is glued pretty well!

    AJ Molenaar - Antwort

    First: English isn't my mothertongue, so please excuse mistakes.

    I also lost the camera. But it wasn't a problem. At the end of step 28 it was quiet easier to pry the camera without being careful about the motherboard. Only the reverse was done at step 18 again. I put the camera inside the hole and closed the connector for the data. After that I connected the motherboard again with the display and put all together back. So everything was at its right place.

    At the End everything was perfect. I'm as pleased as punch!

    Ulrike Jasmin Schad - Antwort

    This was probably the toughest part. It took it's time to remove the camera from the old assembly. As mentioned in earlier comments, it was glued rather well. Be really careful since there is a data cable connecting the camera to the motherboard, and you won't be able to see it that easily.

    Smorgasbord - Antwort

    I took off the camera with the tweezers and thus I had no problem to remove it.

    Werner Lauckner - Antwort

    Possible camera fix after damage while extracting: I too had a well stuck camera, and I damaged the camera while separating it from its small metal plate. The tape holding the plate to the chassis was less strong than the tape affixing the camera to the small plate. The camera seems to consist of a sensor (housed in the silver cube), and its lens (the black plastic bit that separated itself from the cube). The lens is still attached to the sensor by four springy bits of wire which I'm guessing control a magnet which causes the lens to move a bit for focusing. I'm guessing that one of those wires have been damaged and therefor the lens is hanging in its most relaxed state. If you poke the lens carefully with the tip of the spudger you will see that it is kind of swimming in there.

    Daniel - Antwort

    The effect of this is that the lens is stuck in macro mode. Things that are very close will be in focus. A workaround to get the lens to have a fixed focus on around 1 meter to infinity, is to get the lens to push back as deep in the direction of the sensor as possible. This could be accomplished with crazy glue, or similar. I found a rubber washer small enough to not block the lens, which forces it back when the midframe is reattached.

    Daniel -

    You can actually fix the focus more towards infinity by screwing the inner lens part clockwise.

    Samuli Kaipiainen -

    Lifting the motherboard without breaking the camera module is the most critical step.

    I used tweezers to loosen the camera module from the display assembly.

    It worked best for me to lift the motherboard slightly (!), so I could see the base of the camera module, and then carefully separate the camera from the metal part that it is glued to.

    Have a good lock at the pictures, so you know where the camera module ends and you don't end up breaking the camera module into pieces, instead of taking it off the base.

    I had to push the camera module connector back in again, as it came loose slightly.

    Everything worked out fine in the end.

    Dino - Antwort

    • Trenne das Display Datenkabel mit einem Spudger von der Rückseite des Motherboards.

    In this step I found the rear camera unit glued to the display part. It was easy to take it apart and connect it again to the motherboard but at te first moment I was scared.

    Pacarlas - Antwort

    Yeah, please make sure you don't remove the socket, cause I did it, and after that it's a pain in the !@# to put back. If unfortunatly it happens, remember that the two points on each side of the sockets should be align vertically (from the phone point of view) and the line to the side closer to the phone side.

    clem - Antwort

    In my case the camera also stayed glued to the display part. In fact that was no problem - just leave it connected to its metal pad and take both off together (in my case the metal pad was only midly adhesive to the display part). When reassembling just take off the metal pad from the new display and put in place the old metal pad with the camera on.

    eml - Antwort

    It was a good hint to take out the camera and the metal pad together. It worked perfectly well and in the end it was much easier to separate the camera from the old metal pad and to glue the camera on the new pad.

    Mrs Adams - Antwort

    when re-connecting the (new) screen to the motherboard, you have to watch out to carefully re-connect the display datacable. the two parts fit neetly together and is has to do a little "click"-feeling when the connection was succesful.

    ksend - Antwort

    I reconnected the screen to the motherboard by cutting a small rectangle of cardboard and slide it under the display connector to lift it a little bit. Then you can lay down the mainboard connector on top of it and press it down. It will click in place. Next, slightly lift the topside of the mainboard to remove the cardboard with a pair of tweezers.

    The earpiece speaker may have a 'rubber ring' glued to the front side. The new display assembly will probably have one of these already installed in the earpiece socket, covered with a protective orange ring. I peeled the old 'rubber ring' from the old earpiece, and then put the earpiece into the new display assembly. Old ring went back into the old display. But I guess you could put the new ring into the old assembly, and then you don't have to peel the earpiece apart...

    Don't forget to put two little rubber parts over the proximity sensor and the notification LED on the new display, otherwise the proximity sensor will bug out later. They are visible in the picture for Step 18.

    Sadly I lost the small rubber part in front of the proximity/light sensor.

    Any idea where i can get it, because I have now the bug, everytime a call comes in, the display will turn and stay black until the call is ended :-(


    pappou -

    Which parts are the proximity sensor and the notification LED?

    Andrew Fleming -

    Indeed, the rubber parts didn't came at first, and lastly also the speaker was stuck on the old phone, so this was a rather unwelcome discovery for a non-technician wanting to repair the phone. By lifting it off a small rubber joint came with it so this had to be removed before gluing it back on the new front (a protective adhesive tape needed first to be removed too so this speaker could nicely be glued on. (of course all this is written still without reassembling my phone). Erik

    Erik Buelinckx - Antwort

    It worked ! I managed to get everything back in place, even after suddenly finding another small rubber thing on my table which after magnifying the pictures here, seemed to have fallen of the motherboard.

    So, a part from the fact that this Dragontrail glass is not so strong as promised, I'm really happy I could repair my Fairphone myself.

    When putting the rubber placeholder back in place watch for the right direction. It has a bigger and a smaller hole and they must be placed in the right orientation, otherwise the proximity sensor does not work properly (display is turned off immediately when calling someone)

So far, so good.

My display is replaced now.

Unfortunately, removing the motherboard easily destroyed the camera, which didn't come up with the motherboard, being glued to display at the back.

So now I gotta get a new camera and do the hole thing again -.-

It works perfectly and looks like a new phone! Wow!

I also avoided step 21 and removed the wifi cable together with the board.

Hint for camera step 18: It was glued on very well. What I did was to lift the mainboard slighty and entered with a screwdriver between camera and case. Finally I saw that the metal plate came off too which you already have in your new case. But it was then much easier to remove it after the disassembly with my fingernails. To be able to do this step you have to remove the power button but I would recommend that anyway.
