To replace the 16 megapixel rear-camera, follow the steps to remove all previous components required. Take full precaution when operating tools such as heat guns, as they can cause potential health hazards.

  1. Insert your fingernail or plastic opening tool into the divot at the top of the rear-facing camera.
    • Insert your fingernail or plastic opening tool into the divot at the top of the rear-facing camera.

    • Gently pry and twist the flexible rear cover off the back of the phone.

  2. Insert a fingernail or plastic opening tool into the recess in the bottom right corner of the battery and lift upward.
    • Insert a fingernail or plastic opening tool into the recess in the bottom right corner of the battery and lift upward.

    • Remove the battery away from the phone.

    • Use your fingers to remove the SIM card

    • Make sure the battery, the SIM card, and the MicroSD card have been removed. If these components are not removed, they may get damaged when the heat is applied.

    • In this step you'll be using a heat gun. The heat gun operates at high temperatures, and it may harm you or the device if not used appropriately. Please follow the heat gun safety procedures indicated in it's manual to prevent any harm.

    • Use a heat gun at an approximate distance of 2-3 inches from the phone to apply heat to the phone and loosen up the adhesive in the display.

    • Starting from the upper left corner, insert a guitar pick in between the display and the phone case.

    • Use the pick to pry the display by sliding the pick in the direction shown.

    • Make sure you pry the display around the edge of the phone. At the bottom of the screen there is a thin metallic strip that connects the display to the motherboard, and it can be easily damaged.

    • If any resistance is encountered, stop prying and reapply heat to continue prying.

    • Use the pick to pry the sides and lower part of the display by sliding the pick through the phone.

    • If any resistance is encountered, stop prying and reapply heat to continue prying.

    • Using the guitar pick, lift the screen slightly.

    • You can remove the home button if desired.

    • Slightly lift, but do not remove, the upper end of display assembly.

    • Do not remove the front panel entirely. It is still attached by a connector.

    • If you are reusing the home button flex cable, be careful not to sever the cable from the home button. Adhesive can cause the cable to rip apart from the home button. While the home button will still work, the fingerprint scanner will not.

    • Use the sharp tip of a guitar pick to lift the front panel assembly cable connector straight up off its socket on the motherboard.

    • Safely remove the front panel assembly from phone.

    • Use a Phillips 0 screwdriver to remove all 12 Phillips #0 screws.

    • Push upward from the back side your phone (where the battery should go) to pop out the large gray piece.

    • You should now have two different pieces. To continue we will only use the piece with the motherboard (Shown on the right side of the picture).

    • Use your finger or a plastic opening tool to disconnect the rear-facing camera from the motherboard.

    • Use your hands to gently remove the rear-facing camera from the motherboard.

What if I'm just replacing the glass and not the entire camera?

Brittani Alvey - Antwort

Did you get an answer already? Or did you find a solution in the mean while? My cameraglass is also broken...
