How to disassemble Oppo A15s, Step 1/1

Step 1. Before disassembling!

⚠️️ Before disassembling, do not forget to turn your phone off.

Step 2. Remove the tray

Use the ejection tool (aka Needle) or Paperclip. Push the tip all the way into the hole until the tray ejects, and then pull the tray of SIM and Memory card (Micro SD) out.

⚠️️ Pay attention! The tool must be inserted into a hole on the edge of the phone's housing. Do not press too hard. It may break the tray eject mechanism.

Step 3. Open the back cover

⚠️️ The back cover is glued not only along the edge but around the hole of rear cameras cover and around circumference of the fingerprint sensor hole.

We recommend using a special heating device such as a separator machine, heat gun, or heating mat. It will simplify the process. You can use a home hairdryer, but you will have to make a nozzle by hand or have a suitable one in the kit to gently heat and concentrate the heat flow in the right place.

ℹ️️ The surface of the back cover must be heated to soften the adhesive underneath. The approximate heating temperature is 50° C / 125° F.

Use a thin plastic film or pick for separation. To facilitate the process, you can use isopropyl alcohol. It is often the most difficult to pass the tool between the parts to be divided. Choose the far edge from the FFC cables or buttons.

Do not use a lever or any force for separation that could damage the elements inside.

Pry up the edges. Move an opening tool along the edge, detach the clips and remove the middle cover with antenna pads and tracks. The middle cover protects the printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Try to lift the cover by the edges and don't push anything too far inside, so as not to accidentally break or short-circuit anything on the circuit boards.

Step 10. Remove the daughterboard

Remove the sub-board. It may be glued to the frame with metalized tape, so to facilitate the process, the sub-board can be heated a bit.

The sub-board, also, may be attached with attachments like latches or hooks. Be careful.

ℹ️️ The sub-board contains a charging port (Micro-USB), microphone, headphone jack, spring contacts for the speaker, vibration motor, and an antenna unit.

⚠️️ It is not necessary to insert the tool underneath when removing the sub-board. Internal components could be damaged.

Traditionally, the rear cameras were glued with adhesive tape to the display module frame. So, we have to lever carefully to remove them. The front camera is covered with a copper film (black one) that is part of the passive heat sink system and leads to the copper layer on the motherboard shield.

Carefully remove the printed circuit board. There is no need to use a lever or try to reach the circuit board by force. Make sure that nothing is getting in the way or holding the circuit board.

The motherboard, also, may be attached with attachments like latches or hooks. Be careful.

Also, the motherboard slightly holds by thermal paste.

⚠️️ Do not bend the circuit board when removing it or push tools under it. Unbeknownst to yourself, you can damage components or cables from the inside.
