This Nexus 5X replacement guide will show you how to replace only the LCD screen and digitizer on your Nexus 5X mobile device—not the screen assembly. If your replacement part includes the plastic frame, you will need to transfer additional parts (LED, vibration motor, ear speaker, headphone jack, power/volume buttons, and proximity sensor gaskets) to your new frame assembly. Be sure to read through the steps and comments carefully before you begin your replacement.

If your glass screen (digitizer) is cracked, damaged, or unresponsive to touch, this guide will help you replace the damaged glass screen and restore functionality to your device.

If your display has dead pixels, displays distorted or blurry images, or fails to display anything at all, this guide will help you replace the damaged LCD.

Adhesive strength and device condition may vary; please exercise caution when removing components from your device.

Good guide, but not the end all - this guide doesn't accurately reflect how difficult the cameras and battery can be to remove. Also, if you are replacing the LCD+digitizer+frame, you will need to remove the LED, headphone jack, and vibration motor

Jay Miley - Yanıt

Hello Jay! Thank you for your comment. I've added some of the details you mentioned to help our readers. Guide specifics can vary since it's not always possible to judge the state of a reader's particular device, but that's the beauty of a repair wiki! We can all pitch in and create a comprehensive guide.

You are correct—additional components and/or parts may need to be transferred or removed depending on the replacement. You certainly can remove the LED panel, headphone jack, and vibration motor, but it is not required to free the LCD screen and digitizer in this guide. The cameras are removed in this guide due to their fragility and the potential for component damage during the replacement.

Always research replacement kits and parts before ordering, and make sure you've got everything you need for a successful repair!

This guide helped tremendously, things got a little confusing after step 10 (my replacement screen came with the frame, which I think is the better option). As Jay Miley pointed out there are several other steps required for moving components from the old frame (and unfortunately it's easy to overlook some of the smaller pieces), but it was still nice to have this guide to reference.

Hiya Craig! I'm glad to hear that your replacement went well even though you had the +frame replacement part. There are two screen replacement options for the 5X; the +frame replacement part for the 5X requires additional components and gaskets to be transferred from your old frame. I'll try to get a guide up for the LCD & digitizer +frame replacement part in addition to this guide.

Richard Suovanen -

I had a pre-assembled screen / frame so the only real difference was:

* heatgun and remove headphone jack

* power / volume buttons also needed to be switched over (very small flat head screw driver to pop-up)
