Today I’m going to show you how to replace the camera lens on your Galaxy S5. There’sno reason to ever have a cracked lens with how easy this is. All the repair parts and stuff will be found in the article description below so you can check that out if you needto buy the replacement lens. I’m going to lift up underneath the plastic frame of thelens with my little tweezers here, you can use a razor blade or a pry tool. Just kind Nayeem Hussain: so at keen home we’re focused on adding technology to core funct… of lift it up away from the phone. It’s held down with some adhesive. Pull it away, andthen this part, there’s really no pretty way to do this.
You just have to pull away allthe little shards from the camera itself. You do want to be super careful, however, to not touch the actual lens of the camera underneath all the shards of the glass, becauseif you do scratch that up it’s a little harder repair than this is. So as I’m pulling awayall the glass I’m making sure not to accidentally poke the eye of the camera with the tweezers. You also do want to make sure you get 100%of the glass and dust out from the cameraitself, otherwise your camera will have problems focusing later on as you try to use it. I’m Alright so the first mod I’m going to show you is actually this little guy. It’s a throttle lock that can… pulling the glass away from where the frame will sit back down again. Pulling off theadhesive from the actual lens itself, setting it down in the little square, making sureto press it all the way down with my fingers so that it sits completely flush against the phone itself.
You can see from this angle here that it’s completely down inside of thelittle housing that it’s supposed to sit in. Now that it’s all pressed in hard, I can pulloff the protective plastic over the top of the lens, and then the outer bracket or theouter housing does have some adhesive on it as well. I’m pulling off the plastic thatprotects that adhesive. And you can see that the tab on the silver part lines up with thelittle groove on the housing on the phone. So I’m going to slip it down and that’s howyou keep it oriented the right direction. I’m pressing it down pretty hard just to makesure that adhesive is securely adhered to the phone and is not going to pop off on me. Remember, all the replacement parts and tools can be found in the article description below,so check that out.
I’m going to pop the back housing back on. And then you can see herethat my camera is going to focus on my tool kit and everything works perfectly.
