    HTC Sensation take apart/repair guide:

    • To begin, remove the back battery cover by pressing in the button that will loosen the cover. We now have access to the battery, sim card, and memory card, all of which need to be removed.
    • There will now be six (6) torx screws that will need to be removed using a torx T5 screwdriver.
    • Using safe opening pry tool, you can simply pry apart the back housing of the phone from the front assembly, starting at one end and working your way slowly around the phone releasing all the clips.
    • Use Torx screwdriver, take away screw as shown in figure 1.

    • Cautiously lift the tape at the edge of the motherboard, and unclip any clips that are holding any ribbons in place.
    • Now you can use the safe open pry tool to take away the camera ribbon cable off its socket in the motherboard.
    • Be sure to release the adhesive holding the power button flex cable and the volume button flex cable to the housing. Gently lift the cables up and away from the housing.
    • You can now remove the motherboard, be cautious not to damage any ribbons or cables in the process. Separate the two using safe pry tool, and use your nippers to lift the tape and disconnect the antenna wire, as shown in figure 2.

    • Once the frame and motherboard are separated, you will need to take away the ribbon flex cable that connects the two. Take away the tape that covers it and then cautiously remove this cable without ripping it.
    • Once this cable has been removed, the motherboard is now completely separated from the LCD screen and touch screen digitizer.
    • To start removing the touch screen, you must use your hot air gun or hair dryer to heat the glue on the edges of the phone.
    • Heat the adhesive and pry all the edges of the phone using safe pry tool and separate the screen from its housing. Take your time, and slowly separate as you slide along the edges
    • When they are separated, the flex cable beneath the touch screen will become disconnected from the screen. You can cautiously take away it by sliding it through the hole as shown in figure 3.
