How To Replace A Scratched Samsung Galaxy S3 Camera Lens Cover




What do you think about this video?

Andreas Lindhé: That music is just awful! And it's as loud as your voice. please don't ever do this again. 

frankieholder_YDG: terrible music but awesome video! without this I would've never thought it be this cheap to replace the lens cover.

khres57: what did u acctualy use the screwdriver for? im watching this without sound so i cant hear u

GavwanShorts: Useful info, dude...could have done without the "Jerry-Anderson-on-an-Acid-Trip" music, tho. :)

Boris Daley: i like it kool

Barxxo: thx

katapellos7: Omg the music is horrible and scary 

Leo D: I hate tutorials with music in the background.

FIGSTHEHERO: WOwowOW that music was super fun and flirty and very helpful yes thanks but it was a very helpful video and gave me the confidence to do this. thanks :D my phone can once again take not crapty photos.

Sam Gray: Hello great video on replacing glass. I have an s4 that needs glass cover over camera replaced. Do you know if it will be the same technique.? I hope they are the same I just ordered one on ebay for $3. Thanks

FightForTruth: Damn that background music was freaking annoying.

Raul Tavares: Where did you get your camera lens at ?

Chris Puebla: Annoying music good quick video

David Doll: CONGRATULATIONS! This video was great. Unfortunately it was filed on YouTube in the wrong area.... It should have been placed in the "HOW TO ACCOUSTICALLY ANNOY PEOPLE WHILE SHOWING THEM SOMETHING USEFUL area. Of course no worries ABOUT COPYRIGHTS. No One will steal that Ear-ratcheting Fairies screaming backwards into a re verb chamber- music

rvngizswt: The editing was terrible, I'm sorry.

Don Stoneman: Thank you! Made the repairs on my wife's phone $4.85 total including shipping!

Sahil P: this video was useful and kinda creeped me out.

Timur Tsyganko: Could be a great video manual but this crapty loud music kills the entire idea

Joseph Wright: Brilliant, thanks! :)

Nick B: i think i ate to much acid

M Azim: Hey, do you know if its the same for the S4 camera lens? 

Dave Hannaway: Good video. I had to replace the glue as it would not stick. Thin double sided tape works wonders

Chetan S: too good :) :)

Mahykal: Horrible background sounds.. 

nelljamina419: Great vid. Does anyone know how to do this for the galaxy note (n7000)?

Leo Paphitis: That song is a hit

jstieber19: I just did this repair too. Cheap and easy. The only issue you may want to consider is the double sided tape. My phone did not have it. Instead it had a sticky black foam/glue substance which made removing the silver piece slightly more difficult and I also need to find a new substance to secure the silver piece in. I've only owned this phone for about 6 months so maybe in that time Samsung changed from tape to glue. Bought the phone in a midwestern U.S. Verizon store. 

butzke: Hello, I just dropped my galaxy s3 and broke the lens cover. The camera is still working, but the photos are without focus now. Do you think if I replace the lens cover the photos going to be good again or do I have to replace the rear camera too? Thanks

john12804: Thank you. Thought my phone f****d. Thanks man.

Jeremy Toy: @Luis Diaz yeah the phone rim has a lining of double sided foam tape. The new part doesn't include tape.

Kate Kovach: Thank you so much I'm so relieved I dont have to replace my whole camera!

Focohi: Thought it'd be much more difficult than that to be honest, love how you say "Try not to get any fingerprints on it" and you use your entire thumb to press it down. Although I'll get mine in a few days, and I'll use this tutorial then! Good job!

Suean Fontenard: Thank you very much. This was very helpful and I have just replaced my cracked lens.

Michael Brogan: What is the replacement lens made out of? and did the picture quality change at all?

Focohi: I believe it should be kinda the same for most of the models of samsung, you just got to have the right lens for your phone, so read it carefully when buying. (Like me for example, got a Samsung S3 i9300) It should be videos out there for S4 aswell, keep on looking. Good luck!

B Ornlivedie: it's so bad it's good

Betim Prevalla: Worked great.I fixed it for 1$.THNX

Jeremy Toy: haha, you know i have tried to change the audio but can't.. lol. sorry mute will have to do for now...

19TheJohn93: why this psychedelic music in the background ^^

Archimedes Aguilar: Where did you buy that replacement lens cover? online? can you put a link and is it available on retail? if yes, where?

chijian: thanks. very helpful. but yes, the music needs improvement.

Luis Diaz: Does the lens have adhesive, or how does it stick the the phone?

gailcontr3ras: i cracked my camera lens when i first got it and i didnt mind really but now i think dust or something got in it and it just makes my camera look horrible!!! hopefully replacing the lens works !

Anthony Truong: Hey, I broke my camera lens long ago and now my gs3's camera sensor is scratched, how do I fix that?

gailcontr3ras: yeah but its already cracked anyways and i already made my ebay purchase might as well :)

Jeremy Toy: you could try getting a compressed air blower from a camera store and blowing the dust out alternatively one of those cleaner hand blower lens cleaners.

MrGlennbirch: Ah ha ha ha not just me! .... Derion White said - 1 week ago Most Retarded audio ever!

Lance Gockel: A couple tips: 1) When you receive the new lens cover, it has a piece of protective tape on each side that should be removed before installation. When you install the lens, gray side down then snap the silver frame on. 2) On my camera the dirt was actually on the camera lens itself. I was hesitant to clean it but pictures remained fuzzy so I did not have much to lose. Use a cotton swab to really scrub on the lens. You can test your clarity prior to reinstalling the lenz cover. This worked

migueluspa: @ frostedpants-same thing. i don't know how the hell i broke it. but from watching this video all i was able to hear was 4 bucks. that made me happy.
