Introduction

The motherboard of the Droid RAZR houses a number of critical components, including the SD and SIM card readers, vibrator motor, lower microphone, and microSD and micro HDMI ports.

  1. Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement, Back Cover: étape 1, image 1 de 2 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement, Back Cover: étape 1, image 2 de 2
    • Insert a plastic opening tool between the back cover and rear case at the lower left edge of the back cover.

    • Pry the back cover up with the plastic opening tool to free the plastic clips.

    • Continue prying along the left edge of the back cover towards the top of the phone.

  2. Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 2, image 1 de 3 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 2, image 2 de 3 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 2, image 3 de 3
    • Work the plastic opening tool across the top of the back case to free the plastic clips.

    • The top edge of the back case is very thin. Pry carefully to avoid cracking or snapping it.

    • Continue prying down the right side of the back cover to free the remaining clips.

  3. Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 3, image 1 de 3 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 3, image 2 de 3 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 3, image 3 de 3
    • Pull the back cover away from the phone to remove it.

    • The back cover is attached to the battery with a generous amount of adhesive, so you may have to use quite a bit of force to separate the two pieces.

    • The battery must remain in the phone and not come off with the back cover or you will break the power lead.

    • Since the back cover is made of Kevlar, it can handle a fair amount of twisting and tugging without breaking.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to lift up the red silicone cover over the battery terminal screws and remove it.

  5. Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 5, image 1 de 3 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 5, image 2 de 3 Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 5, image 3 de 3
    • Remove the two 3.3 mm T5 Torx battery terminal screws.

    • Grab the blue battery removal tab and lift the battery out to remove it.

    • There is quite a bit of adhesive securing the battery to the motherboard. Work slowly to avoid deforming the battery.

    • Your phone will have a number of metal EMI shields on the motherboard, rather than the bare ICs seen here.

    • Use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive underneath the camera cover.

    • The following steps were performed without the use of a heat gun. Notice that the camera cover cracks very easily if you do not heat the adhesive that holds it in place.

    • Gently pry up the bottom edge of the camera cover with a plastic opening tool.

    • Carefully slide the plastic opening tool across the bottom edge to free it from the adhesive.

    • Continue to use the heat gun as needed to soften the adhesive as you remove the camera cover.

  12. Motorola Droid RAZR Motherboard Replacement: étape 12, image 1 de 1
    • There is a small metal shield that covers the display assembly cable connectors on the motherboard. This shield is held in place by a few small clips that attach to the surrounding EMI shields.

    • Lift up the anti-static tape covering the camera and earpiece ZIF connectors with the tip of a spudger.

    • Peel back the tape and remove it.
