Follow this guide to remove and replace a defective fingerprint scanner/home button for the OnePlus 5. The fingerprint scanner is layered underneath the loudspeaker module and the daughterboard. The hardest part of the guide is getting the frame clips of the back cover free to access the internals of the phone.

Some guide images will show the battery already removed from the phone. You do not need to remove the battery for this procedure.

    • Insert a SIM card eject tool, bit, or a straightened paperclip into the small hole below the SIM card tray, located near the rear cameras on the edge of the phone.

    • Press firmly to eject the tray.

    • During reassembly, be sure to properly orient the SIM tray you you insert it.

    • There is a high risk of damaging the display panel if this opening procedure is improperly followed.

    • The following four steps show how to pry the rear case from the plastic frame. Read through the steps first before attempting the procedure.

    • There are two different seams between the body and the screen of the phone:

    • Display panel seam: This seam is part of the display assembly. Do not pry at this seam, or you will separate and damage the display panel.

    • Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. Only pry at this seam.

    • There are twelve clips that hold the frame against the rear case. Be aware of their location as you pry the back cover off in the following steps.

    • As you work, try not to accidentally power on the phone. If you do, turn the phone off before resuming disassembly.

    • Place a suction cup near the bottom edge of the display.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong steady force.

    • Press the edge of an opening tool straight into the frame seam near the suction cup until the edge wedges between the plastic frame and the back cover's lip.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this will take substantial force. Using a new opening tool with an unmarred edge will help with this step.

    • Once the opening tool's edge is wedged in position, carefully slide the tool along the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Carefully guide the opening tool around the left corner of the phone while keeping the tool's edge within the seam.

    • Lever the opening tool to release the first clip from the frame.

  7. OnePlus 5 Fingerprint Scanner Replacement: step 7, image 1 of 3 OnePlus 5 Fingerprint Scanner Replacement: step 7, image 2 of 3 OnePlus 5 Fingerprint Scanner Replacement: step 7, image 3 of 3
    • Continue sliding the opening tool along the long edge, releasing the clips along the way.

    • The last clip in the top-left corner near the front-facing camera is recessed and can be difficult to release. Take your time and use the flat end of a spudger or an opening pick to help.

  8. OnePlus 5 Fingerprint Scanner Replacement: step 8, image 1 of 1
    • With the bottom and left edge of the phone freed, gently wiggle the frame to release the top and right edge clips.

    • The frame is still connected to the back cover by a long flex cable. Do not remove the back cover.

    • During reassembly, pause here to test your phone's functionality before securing the back cover.

    • To reinstall the back cover:

    • Align the top edge of the frame to the back cover and ensure that the top clips slip into place.

    • Squeeze along the long edges of the phone to snap the remaining clips into place.

    • With all the clips released, flip the phone over so that the display is face-down.

    • Swing the back cover around and rest it on top of the exposed frame.

    • Be careful not to stress the flex cable connecting the back cover and the frame.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the back cover flex cable from its socket.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • Do not apply pressure directly onto the delicate flex cable.

    • If the fingerprint scanner is not coming loose, make sure you are pressing the spudger's point against the backside of the scanner as indicated in the first image, and not the metal plate below it.

  26. OnePlus 5 Fingerprint Scanner Replacement: step 27, image 1 of 2 OnePlus 5 Fingerprint Scanner Replacement: step 27, image 2 of 2
    • Once the fingerprint scanner is loosened from its recess, carefully thread its flex cable through the cutout, out of the front of the display.

    • Remove the fingerprint scanner.

    • If you are installing the fingerprint scanner onto a replacement frame, be sure to peel off the blue adhesive liner for the fingerprint scanner before sticking it in place.

Is there an extra step involved so that the button stays countersunk in the new display? Mine seems to be slightly proud of the screen

Hi John,

If you may need to apply some new adhesive to the underside of the fingerprint sensor to hold it in place.

Arthur Shi -

Hi,

I change the fingerprint but only works if don’t close the back cover, when I close the back cover the OS don’t detect the fingerprint sensor. Any idea?

César Gutiérrez - Ответить

Hey César,

It may be that something is shorting the fingerprint sensor. Did you replace the tape in step 24 with electrical tape?

Arthur Shi -

Great news, finally I found the problem, the connector from daughter board to motherboard was disconnected but a lot of pins maked contact and the micro, and other electronics works but not the fingerprint sensor. I dissasembled the motherboard and pushed the connector from the flex cable to the socket, now all is working ok. Thanks for the response Arthur!
