Inleiding

This guide shows how to remove and replace the screen and digitizer assembly for the OnePlus 5.

Use this guide for screens that come pre-mounted on a frame.

This procedure requires significant disassembly, including battery replacement, and transferring small parts from the old screen to the replacement. The two most difficult parts are getting the frame clips of the back cover free, and not damaging the fingerprint scanner cable.

Some guide images will show the dual rear-facing camera module already removed from the phone. You do not need to remove it for this procedure.

If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair.

    • Insert a SIM card eject tool, bit, or a straightened paperclip into the small hole below the SIM card tray, located near the rear cameras on the edge of the phone.

    • Press firmly to eject the tray.

    • During reassembly, be sure to properly orient the SIM tray you you insert it.

    • Remove the two 2.6 mm T2 screws straddling the USB-C port on the bottom edge of the phone.

    What are the reference of the screws ? They are missing in the one I bought !

    Yôken Asakura - Antwoord

    Hi Yôken,

    They help hold the back cover on. Most of the time, the clips are enough to hold the phone together.

    Arthur Shi -

    Just FYI, for whatever reason my brand new OnePlus 5 had 0,8 mm stars screws instead of T2 Torx.

    strixaluco - Antwoord

    Same here, T2 doesn’t fit the screws on my Oneplus 5. More like T1’s

    Shaze An - Antwoord

    Definitely T2 for me. Do watch out during assembly. I have a feeling that it’s easy to strip these.

    Juno Grégoire - Antwoord

    T2 for me too. It was missing in my kit and iFixit sent it later when I asked them about it.

    • There is a high risk of damaging the display panel if this opening procedure is improperly followed.

    • The following four steps show how to pry the rear case from the plastic frame. Read through the steps first before attempting the procedure.

    • There are two different seams between the body and the screen of the phone:

    • Display panel seam: This seam is part of the display assembly. Do not pry at this seam, or you will separate and damage the display panel.

    • Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. Only pry at this seam.

    • There are twelve clips that hold the frame against the rear case. Be aware of their location as you pry the back cover off in the following steps.

  4. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 2 OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • As you work, try not to accidentally power on the phone. If you do, turn the phone off before resuming disassembly.

    • Place a suction cup near the bottom edge of the display.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong steady force.

    • Press the edge of an opening tool straight into the frame seam near the suction cup until the edge wedges between the plastic frame and the back cover's lip.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this will take substantial force. Using a new opening tool with an unmarred edge will help with this step.

    I found pushing open the frame seam at the corner works better than pushing from the middle like it is shown in the pictures

    • Once the opening tool's edge is wedged in position, carefully slide the tool along the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Carefully guide the opening tool around the left corner of the phone while keeping the tool's edge within the seam.

    This was extremely difficult & took a lot of force. I needed a thin flat metal spudger and wrecked a couple of plastic ones in the process. I left a few scratches along the join in the process. It would be easier if I had something to hold the phone, in my hand I kept turning it on by accident.

    David Hoffman - Antwoord

    what was the metal spudger did you use? I am having trouble as well. I cannot seem to pry the back cover and it feels like it is shut tightly, there are no crevices I can pry into. What was your strategy may I ask?

    Azure Shoti -

    At first, I slightly opened the body with a plastic tool, but it was not enough to actually open the back cover. Then I used a thin metal screwdriver for this. It was difficult but nothing special. Just be sure that you are opening the correct seam between the body and the screen and don’t make sudden moves. I bent nothing, everything came back in place when reassembled.

    • Lever the opening tool to release the first clip from the frame.

    • Continue sliding the opening tool along the long edge, releasing the clips along the way.

    • The last clip in the top-left corner near the front-facing camera is recessed and can be difficult to release. Take your time and use the flat end of a spudger or an opening pick to help.

    If you have difficulties with the last clip on the upper left. Try to go round the other side (right side), beginning at the bottom. This worked very well for me after having some difficulties with the clip near the front camera.

  8. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 8, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • With the bottom and left edge of the phone freed, gently wiggle the frame to release the top and right edge clips.

    • The frame is still connected to the back cover by a long flex cable. Do not remove the back cover.

    • During reassembly, pause here to test your phone's functionality before securing the back cover.

    • To reinstall the back cover:

    • Align the top edge of the frame to the back cover and ensure that the top clips slip into place.

    • Squeeze along the long edges of the phone to snap the remaining clips into place.

    Reinstalling the back cover stumped me for a second… If you’re struggling with aligning the top edge of the frame, remember that the camera is going to look off/pointed a bit too low until you actually clip the frame back in.

    Really stupid but it was the only thing that tripped me up in this guide.

    • With all the clips released, flip the phone over so that the display is face-down.

    • Swing the back cover around and rest it on top of the exposed frame.

    • Be careful not to stress the flex cable connecting the back cover and the frame.

  10. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 1 van 2 OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Remove the 2.6 mm Phillips screw holding the cable bracket above the battery in place.

    • Lift up and remove the cable bracket.

    • To reinstall the bracket, position one end into place, and bend the bracket slightly to spring the other end into place.

  11. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 11, afbeelding 1 van 2 OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 11, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the back cover flex cable from its socket.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

  12. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 12, afbeelding 1 van 1

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the interconnect flex cable from the socket.

    • If you are replacing the battery, bend the interconnect flex cable away from the phone and secure it out of the way with a rubber band or tape.

    What if you’re NOT replacing the battery?

    e nigma - Antwoord

    This step is used in multiple guides, and not all of them require the cable to be bent away. You can just leave it sitting there, disconnected.

    Arthur Shi -

    This image seems to show the daughterboard removed but there is no corresponding previous step. I see no way to remove the interconnect flex cable without removing the daughterboard. Possibly the volume switch can be removed with the cable still connected but I'm not confident enough to try this so will remove the daughterboard.

    David Hoffman - Antwoord

    David,

    Thanks for bringing this up. That's indeed a procedural error! I've added the missing steps in the affected guides.

    • Brace the phone frame against the table.

    • Using a strong, steady force, pull the green pull tab upwards until the battery loosens from its recess.

    • If you are having a hard time, apply some high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol along the battery seam to help weaken the adhesive.

    • Swing the battery completely out of its recess and pull it off of the plastic liner.

  20. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 20, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed. Reusing a battery that is bent or otherwise stressed is a potential safety hazard.

    • If your replacement battery did not come with a green pull tab, you can transfer the old tab to the new battery to help with subsequent replacements.

    • While installing a new battery, temporarily connect the battery to the phone to ensure proper battery alignment.

    • If you are installing a battery onto a new screen and digitizer assembly, be sure to peel off the dark blue adhesive liners to expose the battery adhesive for the new battery.

  21. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement, Daughterboard: stap 21, afbeelding 1 van 2 OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement, Daughterboard: stap 21, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use the point of a spudger the pry up and disconnect the fingerprint scanner connector from its socket on the daughterboard.

    • Slip the point of a spudger underneath the antenna interconnect cable and pry up to disconnect it from its socket on the daughterboard.

    • De-route the antenna interconnect cable out of the way of the daughterboard.

  23. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 23, afbeelding 1 van 2 OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 23, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Insert the edge of a flat end of the spudger underneath the microphone board and twist slightly to release the board's adhesive.

    • Slide the flat end of a spudger or the point of an opening pick underneath the daughterboard near its right edge.

    • Gently pry to loosen the daughterboard from its recess.

    • If the daughterboard begins to bend significantly, stop and pry from a different angle.

    • Insert the flat end of a spudger underneath the daughterboard, this time approaching it from the bottom.

    • Twist and slide the spudger slightly to release the daughterboard from its recess.

  26. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 26, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Slide the flat end of a spudger underneath the tape covering the fingerprint scanner.

    • Lift up to pry and remove the tape.

    • You will most likely not be able to reuse the tape during reinstallation. Replace it with a piece of electrical tape.

    Hello! Does this silicone tape have the same thickness as the mesh that will be removed during disassembly? Do you have a mesh like that available or do you know a place to purchase it online?? Thanks

    • If you are planning to reuse the fingerprint scanner, be extremely careful pulling the flex cable up. It is very delicate and prone to breaking.

    • Use your finger to gently lift up the connector end of the fingerprint scanner. Pull upwards slowly. Do not pull directly away from the fingerprint scanner.

    • Keep pulling upwards until the fingerprint scanner cable is freed from its recess.

    I couldn’t release this by pulling upwards as shown. Maybe I wasn’t brave enough & could have pulled harder. I used a fine pointed end of a scalpel blade under the left side where the QR code is & that, while pulling gently, did the trick.

    • Insert the point of a spudger into the marked areas on either side of the flex cable, and push until the fingerprint scanner is loosened from its recess.

    • Do not apply pressure directly onto the delicate flex cable.

    • If the fingerprint scanner is not coming loose, make sure you are pressing the spudger's point against the backside of the scanner as indicated in the first image, and not the metal plate below it.

  29. OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 30, afbeelding 1 van 2 OnePlus 5 Screen and Digitizer Assembly Replacement: stap 30, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Once the fingerprint scanner is loosened from its recess, carefully thread its flex cable through the cutout, out of the front of the display.

    • Remove the fingerprint scanner.

    • If you are installing the fingerprint scanner onto a replacement frame, be sure to peel off the blue adhesive liner for the fingerprint scanner before sticking it in place.

    My replacement fingerprint scanner did not come with any adhesive to hold it in place and it floated above the surface of the phone. I used a tiny amount of very carefully applied Gorilla contact adhesive which worked but will be a pain to remove next time.

    Hi Alex! Thanks for the feedback! Can you relay which replacement guide you found the missing steps in? That would help me very much!

    Arthur Shi -

    There are no steps 33, 34, 35 in this guide so the above comments must be from some other guide. With this phone I just lifted out the motherboard, carrying the camera with it. It went back the same way - but be careful not to trap the connector cable at the front under it.

    • Slide the point of a spudger underneath the antenna interconnect cable that is connected to the motherboard above the vibration motor.

    • Pry up to disconnect the cable from its socket.

    • De-route the cable out of its motherboard grounding clip and move it out of the way.

    Be attentive when reassembling if your unit doesn’t have a tape, which keeps antenna interconnect cable in place — I’ve accidentally got it squeezed with back cover.

    • Try not to tear the black tape pieces in this step so that you can reuse them during re-assembly. If you do tear the tape, replace them with pieces of electrical tape.

    • Use tweezers or the point of a spudger to pry up and remove the black tape covering the volume buttons on the right edge of the phone.

    • Repeat the process with the black tape covering the power button on the left edge of the phone.

    • Use the edge of an opening tool to gently pry the volume button board away from the frame.

    • If the volume button board begins to bend significantly, stop and pry from a different angle.

    • Continue prying until you loosen the volume button board from the frame.

    • Squeeze the tweezer tips together and insert the point underneath the volume button board's contact pad near the top right edge of the frame.

    • Pry upwards to loosen the contact pad from the frame.

    • Remove the volume buttons.

    • To install the volume button board onto a used frame, cut a small piece of adhesive from the pre-cut adhesive card or a roll of Tesa tape, and use it to stick the volume button board back onto the frame.

    • To install the volume button board onto a new replacement frame, peel the blue liner on the right edge of the frame to expose the adhesive. Then, stick the board onto the edge of the frame.

    Installing a vol button to a used frame I found the existing adhesive (a black sticky rubbery compound) still sticky enough to hold all in place except for the last 2mm of the outer strip with the switches which I fixed with a tiny piece of double sided tape. The tape was not at all adhesive & it's not obvious what it's for. Electric tape doesn't stick to the vol button strip so I used 2 or 3 pin prick size dots of contact adhesive to keep it in place. Fingers crossed!

Don’t blame you; the time commitment is hard to justify. However, I had a few hours to spare and took it slow: now I have a backup device from a (my first) phone repair :)

DO NOT TRY TO OPEN THE PHONE. Its a !&&* to repair this phone yourself. I opened it and could not epair this phone. Everything is glued and the buttonconnectors are not designed to be replaceble.

CAUTION and do not repair.

Thanks for the guide, made me able to change my own screen for real cheap!

U forgot the front camera :)

Otherwise great guide!

The contacts for the vibration motor were hard to get off!

I left the front camera attached to the motherboard when I removed the board, but you can remove it separately.

The vibration contacts are pretty heavily glued in! They have to—otherwise, the motor will shake loose :)

Just used this guide, managed to get all the parts off my old phone but have noticed on the new frame there is not any black sticky for the parts to stick onto, it's just bare metal where they're supposed to adhere. Can anyone enlighten me?? Can I buy this double sided black tape? Is Tesa tape a good replacement? I'm assuming things will short out if I try to stick them into the bare metal frame?

Hi Rich,

Tesa tape is a good option! Depending on what you are sticking, you may only need the Tesa adhesive card. For smaller parts such as the side buttons, double-sided tape will suffice.

Nice tutorial. Everything works now after switching the screen. Took about 3h to someone with experience, but the steps are well documented.

The screen replacement from ifixit is not the same quality as the original (particularly the glass is very fragile); still, it's very nice to have access to spare parts and avoid buying a whole new phone!

Solid guide! Pretty intensive repair; only difficulty was to get a new piece of electrical tape to cover the buttons: ended up neglecting to replace that and just using them as is (with greater sensitivity).
