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.

    • 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.

    • Gently unplug the camera from the motherboard, and remove the camera.
