Introduction

This guide is going to show how to take apart a D-Link DCS 936L Wi-Fi security camera and remove the camera lens using a Phillips #00 screwdriver and an opening tool. Don't fear! This is fairly simple once you get started. As long as you are careful not to strip the screws, it should only take a few minutes.

Place the camera upwards between your thumb and first finger.

After removing the screws, there are 4 tabs holding the back cover on. Each tab is located at the edge of a vent. Pry at each point to remove the back cover. Take care not to damage the Micro SD card holder.

Unscrew the motherboard from the frame. There are 3 Phillips #00 5.0mm screws holding it in place. Then (gently!) remove the motherboard and the lens with your fingers.

Make sure your hands are dry and you are working in a dry area. To prevent damage, do not touch the lens. There are two Phillips #00 6.0mm screws keeping the camera in place. Remove the screws first.
