This guide will explain the process of removing and replacing the internal camera of the device. This is one of 3 guides that will handle electrical connections so it is best to be very gentle when doing so. To best use this guide the Phillips 00 screwdriver is recommended. The Phillips 000 or 0 may work as well, please note that the smaller the screwdriver the higher chances of stripping the screw. It is also recommended to have a plastic opening tool (blue) to gently pull the device apart and a bowl or container to keep the small and easily lost screws in.
