    • Begin by making sure your Blu Studio is turned off.

    • To begin the removal of your back panel, first locate the lift tab on the bottom-right corner.

    • Next, gently slide your thumb (or plastic tool if you prefer) down the seem running the length of your Blu Studio until the rear panel is completely removed.

    • Your rear panel should be placed nearby and in a safe location until you are finished with your task.

    • With your back panel already removed from the previous guide you'll need to acquire a Philips head screw driver size (PH00)

    • Next proceed to remove all 16 screws (2.5mm in length), all screws are the same size so getting them mixed up will not be an issue later on.

    • One of the lower right hand screws will be hidden under a sticker.

    • After removing all 16 screws you can begin the process of removing the battery housing panel.

    • You will need to use the thinner plastic prying tool to slowly outline the seem of the case starting from the top (near the camera).

    • Try to be careful around the side buttons as the plastic is weakest there.

    • After the top half of the case has been opened insert the thicker prying tool to keep the case open. This will help as the battery and battery housing have a suction cup like action that keeps them from separating.

    • At this point your battery, motherboard, rear camera, and front camera should all be readily available for fixing. Happy fixing.

    • The power button is located on the rear-left side of your phone just above the battery.

    • Lift the button very carefully.

    • Then unsolder the connections.

    • Solder the new power button in the spot shown in the picture.

    • Fit the button on the side of the phone.
