This guide is a multi-step process to replace the camera on your Samsung tablet. In order to replace the camera, you will need various tools specific to working with tablets and smartphones. In our guide you will find the specific tools we used to complete the replacement of the camera. This repair is needed if you can no longer take a picture with your tablet due to a camera malfunction internally or if the lens cracked from hitting a hard surface. One step to be cautious on when replacing the camera is removing the digitizer from the LCD screen.
