Introduzione

Follow this guide to replace the display assembly, including the display frame. This requires the battery as well as many other components to be removed from the old frame and transferred to the new frame.

Your replacement part should look like this. If your replacement part consists only of the display assembly, you must complete additional steps, which are not covered by this guide.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair.

  1. Power off your phone before you begin working.
    • Power off your phone before you begin working.

    • Insert a SIM eject tool, SIM eject bit, or a straightened paperclip into the small hole in the SIM card tray.

    • Press to eject the tray.

    • Remove the SIM card tray assembly from the phone.

  2. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the top edge of the phone for a minute.
    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the top edge of the phone for a minute.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

    • Angle an opening pick and firmly press so that it slips under the back cover.

      • Depending on the age of the phone, this can be difficult. Additional heating with the iOpener may help. You can pry carefully with a metal spudger to create a gap for the opening pick.

    • Slide the opening pick along the top edge of the phone to break up the adhesive.

      • Use the pick to release the deeper areas but avoid slicing through the camera bezel area.

    • Repeat the iOpener heating and slicing procedures for the remaining three sides.

    • Make sure to cut into the deeper areas as the back cover is held on by a large adhesive surface.

    • Once you have cut through the adhesive, slowly peel the back cover away from the frame.

    • Remove the back cover.

    • Before reassembly, check if the phone operates normally. Remove all adhesive residue from the back cover and the frame, and apply new adhesive to the body.

    • Insert an opening pick under the flash connector rubber cover and pry forward to remove it.

    • To reinstall the cover, align the cover and use your finger to push it forward into place.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and remove the coil connector rubber cover.

    • To reinstall the cover, align the cover and use your finger to push it forward into place.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the flash connector.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the wireless charging coil connector.

    • Remove the following T3 screws securing the midframe:

      • Thirteen 3.1 mm black screws

      • Four 4.3 mm silver screws

    • Insert an opening pick along the frame seam and twist slightly to release the midframe from the phone.

    • Remove the midframe from the phone.

      • You can tape over the side buttons to prevent them from falling out during your repair.

    • If the buttons fall out of the midframe, reinsert them in the orientation as shown before you reinstall the midframe.

    • Carefully peel the black tape layer from the phone.

    • While it is unnecessary for normal operation, the tape layer can be reused during reinstallation if it is in good condition.

    • Remove the two 4.2 mm T3 screws securing the metal bracket adjacent to the battery.

    • Remove the metal bracket.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the battery pack connector.

    • Angle and insert an opening pick under the long edge of the battery away from the motherboard side.

    • Insert a second opening pick along the same battery edge next to the first pick.

    • Apply firm, constant prying pressure to the picks to release the battery from the frame.

    • As the battery loosens from the frame, move the picks inward and continue to pry upwards.

    • The battery is secured to the frame with strong double-sided tape. To help release the battery, apply some high concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol under the battery to help loosen the adhesive.

    • Don't deform or puncture the battery, or it may leak dangerous chemicals or catch fire.

    • Remove the battery.

    • Never reinstall a damaged or deformed battery. Replace the battery.

    • To reinstall the battery, orient it such that the wires exit near the bottom towards the motherboard side.

    • Clean off any adhesive residue which may prevent the battery from sitting flush against the frame. Use a few strips of adhesive included in the battery kit or some double-sided tape to secure the battery to the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick underneath the flat flex cable and slide it to free the cable from the frame.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the antenna cable.

    • De-route the antenna cable from the phone.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the accessory module connector.

    • Peel away the yellow tape covering the display ZIF connector.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to gently flip up the ZIF connector lock.

      • The ZIF lock is prone to breaking due to its width.

    • Use a spudger or tweezers to walk the flat cable out of the ZIF connector.

    • Peel away the yellow tape covering the digitizer ZIF connector.

    • Use the point of a spudger to flip up the ZIF connector lock.

    • Use tweezers or a spudger to walk the ribbon cable out of the ZIF connector.

    • Slide an opening pick underneath the motherboard below the copper shield.

    • Twist the pick slightly to release the adhesive tape securing the motherboard to the frame.

    • Lift the motherboard out, making sure it does not catch on any cables.

    • Remove the motherboard.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the front facing camera connector.

    • Remove and transfer the front facing camera onto the new display frame.

    • The earpiece speaker module is very delicate and prone to breaking. Be gentle when handling the module.

    • Insert a pointed end of a pair of tweezers into a corner as far down as possible.

    • Pry very slightly to help loosen the earpiece speaker module.

    • Repeat the process in the remaining corners.

    • Continue to pry with the point of a pair of tweezers until the earpiece module feels loose.

    • Remove the earpiece module and transfer it to the new display frame.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and remove the speaker grille cover.

    • Remove and transfer the speaker grille cover onto the new display frame.

    • Only the LCD screen and digitizer assembly (with frame) should remain.

    • Compare your new replacement part to the original part. You may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

    • When reassembling your phone replace old adhesive with double-sided tape or pre-cut adhesive strips.
