Is the selfie camera replaceable, mine got messed up
hey, i dropped my htc desire 610 in water and the selfie camera got messed, can I get a new one.
The HTC Desire 610 is a touchscreen smartphone that runs Android software. It was released in February 2014.
Hi @paulod ,
You may have to do more than just replace the camera module.
As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.
The water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the phone's operating design and could damage the components.
First do not turn on your phone and then you need to with the phone turned off, remove the battery as soon as possible from the phone to minimize further damage.''
Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the phone and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ (available from most pharmacies) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is <70% IPA, can contain scents and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount
Here is a link that describes the process.
As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.
Hopefully after you have done all this the phone might possibly work correctly again.
Here is a link to a video which shows how to replace the camera module which may be of some help.
Here is a link to just one supplier of the part. It is not a recommendation to use them. It is shown to give an idea of the cost of the part. There are other suppliers online that may suit you better. Just search for HTC Desire 610 front camera part for results
If this process seems too daunting, take your phone to a reputable, professional phone repair service, experienced in water damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair.
If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
