Camera Cleaning camera lens from the inside

Hey guys,

I was always a little disapointed about the picture quality of my camera. When I looked at the lens, I could see some dust, but it was on the inside.

Yesterday I found this video, which explains how to replace basicly every part of the device.
So I just removed the cover and was able to carefully clean the lens from the inside, and bam, nice pictures again .

Just FYI, for those who have the same problem.

I faced same problem recently as my camera's shots were poor. Then I realised it must be the glass protection over it that is tampered. Got it sorted out at a service center. Anyway this video you pointed out is ideal and explains how to replace each and every part. Ofcourse warranty saves you a lot of trouble, this is for out of warranty servicing.

I too tried disassembling my phone , but I couldn't go beyond those 6 screws because the black case (which in the video is removed by a pick) wouldn't come out...tried every thing
Even broke my nails in the process .
So I have to live with this ****y dusty lens
Is there any other way ?

It is pretty hard to get it off. You need patience and the plastic tool. I used a screwdriver and damaged my chrome surrounding . So just be very carefull and follow the instructions in the video. It worked for me .

something that you cannot see in the video is that in order for screen to pop out you have to push it out pressing the speaker behind

Yep, you really need to be careful.
I scrached my chrome frame while opening it. But it was already a little damaged before, so I don't really care

i got a wire broke when i'm disassembling the phone
even motherboard i removed
that wire is related with signal
i got panicked luckily i found the only shop in my area that sell that wire eventhough it for s2
so the conclusion disassemble properly without blaming anyone for your own mistake
