Introduzione

Use this guide to replace a broken or defective AMOLED Screen & Digitizer in your OnePlus 5T.

Note: This guide instructs you to replace only the screen while leaving the original frame and motherboard in place. However, some replacement screens for this phone come pre-installed in a new frame (a.k.a. chassis), which requires a very different procedure. Make sure you have the correct part before starting this guide.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

    • Before you begin, switch off your phone.

    • Remove the SIM card tray.

    • Remove the two Torx T2 screws (2.5 mm length).

    • The OnePlus 5T doesn't use a lot of adhesive to secure the backcover, however the clamps are very strong and require some force during the opening procedure.

    Could you clarify the statement “The OnePlus 5T doesn't use a lot of adhesive“? Do you mean that it uses adhesive, but only a little? Or do you mean that it doesn’t use any adhesive at all to secure the back, just the clamps?

    Hi Avram,

    there is a little bit of adhesive underneath the edges of the back cover, however it doesn’t require heating to soften it. In case the back cover doesn’t come of straight away it won’t help to apply an iOpener to further soften the adhesive but requires a little bit more force to open the plastic clamps.

    i have tried t2 srewdrivers multiple times but they doesn’t seem work, could those be different screws?

    I purchased the entire kit to do my battery replacement and found the opening tool was not capable of opening my One Plus 5t phone. I tried the tool for at least 30 minutes and couldn’t even get it started. Luckily I had a set of “plastic tools” for removing door panels from cars while doing stereo work. These tools have nice sharp points and are much longer and thicker, providing much better grip and leverage. With these tools, I had the back off the phone in just a few minutes. All the rest of the process was easy to follow and everything worked out great.

    I have all of the necessary parts/tools for replacement. Upon removing the two screws from the bottom, one came out no problem first try. The second bolt slipped andbis now completely stripped out. Any advice?

    • Insert an opening tool between the display and the backcover at the bottom end of the phone.

    • Use the opening tool to create a gap between back cover and display.

    • Insert an opening pick in the gap you created with the opening tool.

    Don’t make the same mistake as i did and put the opening tool between the screen and glass rather than the screen and body. Make sure its the second line from the top where you insert your tool

    This part is very difficult, i have been trying to open the phone up, still cannot.

    The easiest way to open the back cover, is by starting from the bottom right corner, try find a plastic tool that is slim enough to go through the display and back cover.

    I too had troubles with this step. I recommend having a look at the guide for opening up the back cover of the Oneplus 5 before proceeding. It has a lot of helpful images and the instructions go into far more detail than this one does.

    This step was the hardest step for me. I could only succeed with suction cup pliers and a metal pry tool, which unfortunately scratched the device’s edges a little.

    Haggai Eran - Replica

    I found this hard. Look carefully and use a bright light. There are two small ridges. I worked ages on the top one which isn't actually a gap. You need to work on the bottom one of the two. I used a very small metal screw driver with a thin flat blade. I pushed this in to open the gap a fraction then put a plastic tool in the now slightly opened gap and worked it round.

    For opening up the device, Sostituzione copertura posteriore OnePlus 5 that Iceblade02 mentions is excellent. The tools in the kit also correspond to it since the new kit that I received last week had no guitar picks and instead had the suction cup.

    • If the phone's screen is cracked, the suction handle may not stick. Try lifting it with strong tape, or superglue the suction handle in place and allow it to cure so you can proceed.

    • Once the screen is warm to the touch, apply a suction cup to the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Pull the suction cup upwards and insert an opening pick in the gap between the display glass and the midframe. Start to cut the adhesive by sliding the opening pick to the bottom right corner.

    If your screen is cracked, the suction cup might not really adhere, and the screen might crack more.

    Hi James,

    thanks for mentioning. I added a note about what to do with cracked screens.

    Dominik Schnabelrauch -

    I had to resort to using a hair dryer to reach a higher temperature than the one I could reach with the iOpener …

    • Thread the display flex cable through the gap in the midframe and remove the display.

    • Before installing a new display, remove all traces of the old adhesive from the frame, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%) and a lint-free cloth.

    • If your replacement part doesn't come with preattached adhesive, the best way to secure the new screen is with a sheet of custom-cut double-sided tape. Apply the tape to the back of the screen, then carefully feed the display cable through the frame. Align the screen and press it into place.
