Peel off the bottom film and we can stick the new camera lens assembly back. And one tips: you will need a piece of new back cover sticker because the old one maybe can't be used any more.

If your S6 camera lens was broken heavily, just remove it directly but very carefully. Don't hurt the camera or scratch the metal ring.

Is it possible to replace just the lens without taking off the back cover? Like can I just use a suction tool to pull off the broken lens and put in the new one?

Alex Sangue - Reply

Yes, that is possible!

Robin -

I am wondering the same thing. I believe it would work. Don't see the need in pulling the back cover to replace a piece of exposed glass.

Yes. It can be done. I did it using a hair dryer to warm the lens and peel if off gently, starting in one corner. If it seems reluctant to come off you may need to heat it a little more. Be careful not to damage to outer metal ring (as I did) and then replace the glass lens as described.

After replacing the camera lense after it was stepped on I keep getting the warNing camera failed. Tried all of the software fixes. Any suggestions? Thank you! This is for a galaxy s6 edge.

Does anyone know if a similar procedure can be done to replace the camera glass in the S6 Active? Obviously it would be harder to remove the back entirely but steps 6 though 8 look similar so would it be possible on the S6 Active or would it require a different technique to maintain its waterproofing?

Can you make a guide on how to replace the flash lens/bezel? I know this probably isn't a common thing but mine is cracked and I'd like to replace it

Hi,Im using a s6 edge plus.My rear camera lens cover broke.Can we fix it getting an original one?Because out of an analysis i understood that original lens cover is not available & we can only get a copy of it.If we fix the copy cover the picture quality will be effected badly is what i heard.So is there any chance to get an original rear camera lens cover?If so how much would it cost me?

Milutin Zonjic -

Hi,

Any luck on this issue?

I got a fake camera lens and the picture quality is very bad, indeed.

I also noticed that on the back of the glass is written a "code". For example, the fake one has "V1". I can't remember what was the code for the original one.

I dropped the phone and the glass film of the camera broke but my camera is still working does it affect the focus of the camera?

chris.murr13 - Reply

how do I determine whether or not I need just the glass replacement or a whole new Camera replacement.. I smashed the glass heavily on something and when I open the camera app It still works just won't focus? is replacing the glass help it focus or what?

Bobby fresh - Reply

So I purchased the repair kit for the galaxy S6 camera bezel & lens cover. I was wondering if it is supposed to come with the sticker to attach the lens cover to the camera bezel as mine came with a sticker which is only sticky on one side. Maybe i received a dud? I believe the sticker is supposed to be sticky on both sides.
