Follow this guide to replace the front-facing camera module for the Galaxy S20 Plus.

The removal of the camera module is tricky and may result in the destruction of the module. If you plan on reusing the camera module, take care and heed all warnings carefully.

You'll need replacement adhesive in order to complete this repair.

  1. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Heat the bottom edge: adım 1, 1 resimden 1.
    • Unplug and power off your phone before you begin.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the back cover's bottom edge for two minutes.

    • 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.

  2. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Separate the bottom edge adhesive: adım 2, 3 resimden 1. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Separate the bottom edge adhesive: adım 2, 3 resimden 2. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Separate the bottom edge adhesive: adım 2, 3 resimden 3.
    • Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close to the center of the bottom edge as possible.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken glass.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this may take multiple attempts of reheating with the iOpener and separating with the suction cup before you get it right.

    • If you are having trouble creating a gap, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

    • Do not apply excessive force with the pick, or you risk cracking the back cover glass.

    • Slide the pick back and forth along the bottom edge to slice through the adhesive.

    • Do not attempt to cut the adhesive near the corners of the phone where the glass is curved or you risk cracking the glass panel.

    • Leave your opening pick in the seam to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  4. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Heat the left edge: adım 4, 1 resimden 1.
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the left edge of the back cover for two minutes.

  5. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Separate the left edge adhesive: adım 5, 3 resimden 1.

    • Apply a suction cup to the back of the phone, as close to the center of the left edge as possible.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the back cover and the frame.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • As the glass on this edge is curved, you won't be able to insert this pick very far. As long as the very tip of the pick is underneath the glass's edge, you will be able to proceed.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this may take multiple attempts.

    • If you are having trouble creating a gap, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

    • You can try also applying a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol into the seam to help loosen the adhesive.

    • Do not apply excessive force with the pick, or you risk cracking the back cover glass.

    • Slide the pick all along the left edge of the phone to separate the back cover's adhesive.

    • Take care when sliding across the ridge in the frame surrounding the volume and power buttons—the cutout in the glass may make it more prone to cracking.

    • Leave your pick under the left edge of the glass to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  8. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Heat the right edge: adım 8, 1 resimden 1.
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the right edge of the back cover for two minutes.

    • 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.

    • Slide the pick all along the right edge of the phone to separate the back cover's adhesive.

    • Leave your pick under the right edge of the glass near the top of the device to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • As you do this, the back cover may release one or both of the other picks and allow them to fall free. If this occurs, set the pick(s) aside as the bottom edge shouldn't reseal from this point onward.

  11. Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Front-Facing Camera Module Replacement, Heat the top edge: adım 11, 1 resimden 1.
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the top edge of the back cover for two minutes.
