    HTC Rezound Screen Replacement Guide:


    To start you must make sure your device is powered off.
    You will then need to remove the back cover, as well as the battery. You will also need to remove the sim card and Micro SD card.


    • Next you will need to remove six (6) Torx T5 screws circled in the figure below.
    • Once all these screws have been removed you will then need to take your pry tool and pry up the back housing from the clips holding it in place. Be careful not to break or damage these clips.
    • Now that the back housing is removed you can take your Small Phillips Screwdriver and remove the two screws circled in the figure below.
    • You will also need to gently pry up the vibration motor from the housing being cautious not to rip its connection.

    See figure below for reference:

    • To continue you will need to carefully fold over the motherboard being cautious of the two (2) jaw-bone connections highlighted in the figure below.
    • You will need to take your pry tool and lift up on the white flap allowing you to release the connections from the motherboard.

    See figure below for reference.

    • Now that the screen assembly has been removed from the motherboard you can begin applying heat to the front and back of the screen assembly to warm and loosen the adhesive holding the back of the LCD to the mid-frame.
    • You will want to take your heat source on a medium setting roughly 4-5 inches away from the device. Be sure to evenly apply heat to all sides of the screen assembly.
    • Note:Be cautious not to hover over any flex ribbon cables you may not want to damage.
    • Once the adhesive has been warmed and loosened up enough we suggest using a nylon spudger to be able to slide it in the slots of the housing to apply a slight amount of pressure to the back of the LCD screen.
    • With the adhesive loosened up enough you should be able to get enough space to lift out screen assembly and insert your pry tool to remove it completely from the housing.

    See figure below for reference.

    With the screen assembly removed you will need to apply more heat to the outer edges of the touch screen and LCD screen to loosen the adhesive holding them together.
    Note: You can skip this step if you intend to install a new
    Rezound LCD + Touch Screen Assembly


    • After a desired amount of heat has been applied you can then insert your pry tool or chisel end of your spudger and use it to slice the adhesive holding the two screens together.
    • You will need to work on all edges of the screen assembly to be able to successfully separate the two screens from each other.

    See figure below for reference.

    Lastly you may need to remove the clear tabs for your soft keys from your original digitizer and place them on your new digitizer. This allows the colored light to penetrate through the front of the digitizer.
    Although this task may be tedious you should be able to re-use the adhesive that may still be attached to them after initial removal.

    Is it difficult to take off the clear tabs for the soft keys? Should you use heat to loosen up the adhesive? It seems like they could break easily.

    It can be tricky sometimes. I would suggest using heat on a LIGHT setting. you don't wanna melt those tabs or burn up the adhesive. Just enough to lift them off and stick them on your new touch screen. Once you have lined them up correctly they'll fit nicely in the housing. Use tweezers if it helps.
