Honor 5X – Screen Repair, Charging port fix, Battery Replacement Complete video


Today we’re going to be taking apart and
fixing the Honor 5X from Huawei. I’ll show you how to replace the screen, the charging
port, and all the different components inside. You will need a size T3 bit for this. I will
link all the parts down in the video description, as well as the tools that you’ll need. There
are two screws at the bottom. These are the only two screws that you’ll need the T3
bit for. Remove the SIM card trays from the side of the device. And then once those screws
and trays are out you’ll be able to take a pry tool and pry between the back metal
frame and the screen. Make sure you do evenly all along the outside. You’ll see all the
clasps here in a second. Here’s the back panel of the phone. You can see a little bit
of foam around the back panel for the battery and for the fingerprint scanner. It is a metal
and plastic mix. Another nice thing about Huawei is they put little arrows on all their
metal components so you know what direction is up when you’re repairing it. There’s
one screw at the side for the battery port and the screen port. They’re just like little
Lego connections where you can just unsnap them from the motherboard. There are two screws
holding down the metal bracket for the extension ribbon cable that goes down to the charging
port. Unscrew that and remove it. Make sure that you keep all your screws organized. There
are 6 screws down here for the plastic bracket; remove those and lift that up. This is also
the loud speaker for the phone. There are the two contact points that just rest on top
of the charging port so it’ll get its signal. There’s one wire cable also attached to
the charging port. And then the bottom of the extension ribbon cable. Now that that’s
snapped off, we can set that off to the side. The charging port itself is glued down to
the frame of the phone; lift that off. On the back side of the charging port you can
see the microphone that’s also there. Now for the battery, it is interesting, there
is one pull tab that will remove the adhesive from one quarter of the battery, but there’s
still permanent adhesive on all the other three corners. So it’s interesting that
they would have the pull tab there in the first place. Lift that off. Make sure when
you’re prying it out, do not damage that screen cable right there, I’ve unsnapped
it from the motherboard, especially if you need to reuse your screen or if you’re just
doing this repair to replace the battery. There are five screws on the top of the motherboard.
And then the power button and volume buttons are plugged in here to the side. You just
lift up the back of the little clasp and then you can slide out the connector for the volume
and power buttons. There’s one plastic bracket up at the top of the phone; set that off to
the side keeping your screws organized. And then the top of the wire cable unclips and
the motherboard can slide out of the frame. It also has a funky little hat just like the
Nexus 6P. And then the front facing camera can unclasp from the motherboard just like
a little Lego. Same thing with the rear facing camera; just unsnap that. The top camera,
the front facing camera is a 5 megapixel. And then the rear camera is a 13 megapixel.
I’m just going to snap those back into the motherboard; placing them over the connection
and pressing them gently in place. You’ll feel them click down just like a Lego. Now
here is the screen of the phone. It has the plastic back, then the LCD, and then the glass
on top. So this is the part that you’ll buy when you crack your screen or your LCD.
You’ll just have to transfer over the vibrator and the ear piece to your new screen and then
put them back into place. Luckily for the Honor 4X right now, the screens are only about
30 dollars so hopefully these prices are the same for the 5X when they become available.
I will link those down in the video description as soon as they become available. I’m going
to go ahead and put the motherboard back into place, snapping down the screen ribbon cable
and the wire cable onto the bottom of the motherboard right there. And then plugging
in the power and volume buttons. Make sure you do this or else the power button will
not function. This is the only communication it has with the motherboard. Lock it down
into place with the plastic bit. Then there are those five screws. Get those back into
the motherboard as well. Then down here at the bottom of the phone we’re going to set
the charging port into place. And then I’m going to connect the bottom portion of the
extension ribbon cable and then set the battery down underneath the fingerprint scanner. And
then I can set the extension ribbon cable on top. You can see here that I forgot to
plug in my wire cable. Make sure you do that on your phone. Before you set the back plastic
bit down in. There are 6 screws down there along the bottom. And then the top of the
extension ribbon cable needs to be plugged into the motherboard as well as the battery.
Get those two screws and bracket in place. And then the one screw and then this bracket
over the battery connection. Then I’m going to turn on the phone to make sure everything’s
functioning before I put the back cover on. Everything looks good. Now my back cover’s
a little bit bent from a bend test video I did a second ago. I will link that here as
well. So I’m going to bend that back into place. Since metal’s bent it never goes
back perfect, but I think I got it pretty close. I’m going to put the screen and phone
back into the metal housing and then clasp it down around the outside. Everything looks
like it’s working. If you have any questions leave them down in the comments. Make sure
to “like” if this video helped you. And all the behind the scene stuff is on my Instagram
and Twitter. Thanks for watching. Hope to see you around.
