HTC Evo 3D take apart repair guide:
- Separate the back housing cover from the face of the phone with fingers (just as you would to replace the battery). Then remove the battery and set aside.
- Using a the T5 screwdriver, remove the two center edge screws just above where the battery was located.
- Then, you will use the T3 screwdriver to remove the four corner screws at the edge of the phone. Set all screws aside.
- Using the pry tool, slide it into the seam and separate the face of the phone from the back housing as shown in figure 1.
- Using the pry tool and nippers, carefully lift and separate all clips and cables that are holding the motherboard in place. These will often appear as flat pieces of metal, but are sometimes an actual ribbon, such as the camera ribbon cable.
- Remove the yellow tape that will reveal two additional cables that are tucked into the motherboard. By using nippers, you can slide these out without damaging them.
- The last connective piece looks like an L-shaped piece of metal, as shown in figure 2. Separate this piece carefully.
- Carefully separate the motherboard, as it will still be connected underneath by several cables. Two of these cables are located together, and can be removed after lifting the cover tape to reveal the connection spot, as shown in figure 3.
- After disconnecting these two cables, you can disconnect the smaller one on the other end in the same manner. Now you can safely remove the motherboard and set aside.
- Remove four screws that are located at the edge of the phone with your T5 screwdriver, and lift out the cable.
- The bottom blue flex cable can be removed by slowly separating all extending cables connected to it. Demonstrated in figure 4.
- If you are replacing the touch screen digitizer or LCD screen solely, you will want to continue in the take-apart process by using your hot air gun or hair dryer to heat up the phone’s glue.
- Using your pry tool, you can safely slide it around the seam of the screen to be able to remove the touch screen digitizer from the LCD screen, allowing you to replace either of these parts individually.
Now you will be able to replace any parts on your HTC Evo 3D. Simply replace the damaged parts with the new ones and reverse the order to put your phone back together again.
