Introdução

This guide will help you replace the front facing camera in your device. You’re going to need to open up the device first with a heating mechanism, and you’re going to need a couple of other tools to complete this guide.

  1. To soften the adhesive holding the tablet together, heat up the edges of the glass panel using a heated iOpener on the edge of the device.
    • To soften the adhesive holding the tablet together, heat up the edges of the glass panel using a heated iOpener on the edge of the device.

    • We used two iOpeners to open up the tablet. The process is doable with a single iOpener, but would take substantially longer. Alternatively, you can use a heat gun to quickly loosen the adhesive.

    • Leave the iOpener on edge for two minutes.

    • Be careful not to burn yourself while handling the hot iOpener. For more information on the iOpener, use the iOpener Instructions Guide.

  2. Place a suction cup near edge that you heated up with the iOpener.
    • Place a suction cup near edge that you heated up with the iOpener.

    • Press down on the suction cup to create a seal, and pull up with force to create a separation between the display and the midframe.

    • Use an opening tool to split apart the glass panel from the midframe.

    • Be careful to not break the glass when prying from the frame.

    • As you continue along the edge using the opening tool, use a plastic card to keep the glass separate from the midframe.

    • You can also use multiple opening picks instead of a plastic card.

    • As you remove the glass panel, be careful not to tear the ribbon connecting the motherboard to the display.

    • Pull off the glass panel using the suction cup.

    • Carefully disconnect the ribbon connecting the display assembly to the motherboard. You can disconnect this ribbon from either end.

    • Repeat steps 3 through 7 to remove the rear glass panel on the opposite side of the device.

    • Use a Phillips #000 screwdriver to unscrew the five screws securing the battery, and the twenty-two screws surrounding the midframe.

    • The midframe should snap off from the device’s logic board.

    • Locate the ribbon running from the midframe and disconnect it from the motherboard with the flat end of a spudger.

    • Use the flat end of the spudger to pop off the connector between the battery and the motherboard.

    • Flip the midframe over and pop the battery out, making sure to slide it out from underneath the ribbon cables.

    • The battery should now be removed and detached from the device.

    • Using a nylon spudger, carefully push the camera out of its framing.

    • Unlike the rear facing camera, you will be pushing this camera out from the front. Try to push on the side of the camera so as to not damage the lens with the pointy end of the spudger.

    • Carefully pop the front facing camera off from the motherboard with the flat end of the spudger.
