If the pictures or video are fuzzy or unable to focus, the lens may need replacement. Follow this guide to do so.

  3. Insert a metal spudger between the back plastic housing and the camera board assembly. Working around the edge to be careful of the inner components, carefully remove the camera.

  4. Using tweezers, remove the ribbon strip by pulling on it. This will remove the connection. Push down on the three wires with the metal spudger and the clip will disconnect from the motherboard. During reassembly, remove the black tape on the ribbon cable, turn the camera upside down so you can see the port, and reinsert the cable with tweezers. It's a lot easier!

    Removing the tiny gold ribbon strip and the wires from the right hand side as shown in the image is an unnecessary step to change out the lens. In fact it is recommendable to NOT remove these, especially the gold ribbon strip that is shown in the red box. It is very difficult to get this ZIF cable back in place once it has been removed. Simply open the camera carefully so as not to pull on this cable and the wires and proceed with the other steps.

    I agree that the 2 cables shown above do NOT need to be removed in order to replace the image sensor. Just keep the internal assembly (circuit boards) close to the black housing and at a 90 degree angle. Don’t put any strain on the cables though! You can still access the 4 screws holding the sensor board in place as well as pull up the connector attaching the sensor to the mainboard. You’ll save a lot of time (and headache) by leaving those cables attached.

    If you are having trouble connecting the Ribbon cable in particular, use tape to hold buttons in place, remove battery housing & connect the cables up to the battery housing. Then carefully reinsert the battery housing, lay the motherboard down on the casing slightly overhanging the socket end to get to the screw holes.

    those ribbon-ports have a lever to release and secure ribbon. DO NOT PULL directly nor insert ribbons without pulling levers up. once they are on right place, push levers down again (one for each ribbon)

Between step 6 and step 7, you skipped a really important step…
