Introduzione

If you have damaged your Galaxy Tab S3's camera sensor or image stabilization, you will need to replace the camera module. This guide will show you how to properly remove and replace the cameras on the rear of the device.

If you notice that the camera lens is scratched, you will need to replace either the display assembly (front camera) or the rear glass panel (rear camera). A scratch on the camera's outer lens does not constitute damage to the module itself.

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.
