Introduction

Is the screen of your Honor 10 cracked or is the touchscreen not working properly anymore? With our instructions you can easily repair your Honor 10 yourself!

During this repair, we replace the entire display unit including the frame, not just the broken screen.


The repair is a bit more difficult because the Honor 10 has to be opened via the glass back cover.


Make a backup before the repair, use a clean work surface and take your time. If you are stuck at any point, simply contact our live chat or write a comment on the corresponding step.

Getting started

If you get stuck or have questions, you can post a comment for each step. We’d be happy to help.

21 steps
  1. Switch off the device

    Honor 10 - Switch off the device 01
    Honor 10 - Switch off the device 02
    Honor 10 - Switch off the device 03
    1. Turn off your device by holding down the power button until the “Power off” option appears.
    2. Use your finger to confirm that you want to shut down your Honor 10 and wait until the screen goes blank.

    Here in the picture you see another device, because the display of the Honor 10 did not function any more.

  2. Remove the back cover

    Honor 10 - Remove the back cover 01
    Honor 10 - Remove the back cover 02
    Honor 10 - Remove the back cover 03
    Honor 10 - Remove the back cover 04
    Honor 10 - Remove the back cover 05
    Honor 10 - Remove the back cover 06
    1. The back cover’s firmly glued to the chassis. Heat the device evenly with hot air to soften the glue. A temperature of 60 - 80°C should be sufficient. As a rule of thumb, you should still be able to touch your device without it being uncomfortably hot.
    2. The easiest way to loosen the back cover is to use a flat and flexible tool such as the iPlastix or iFlex. You will also need several picks to unstick the back cover all around.
    1. Heat the spot where you start and place a flat tool between the back cover and the frame.

    The iPlastix is made of plastic, so it won't scratch the device. On the other hand, it's very soft and tricky to insert.

    Be extra careful, the back cover can break very easily. If necessary, apply the heat several times and try again. Removing the back cover might take a little longer. Take a little more time and work carefully to make sure you don't break anything.

    1. Once the tool is inserted, stick a pick into the gap to keep it open. Then run the tool around the entire edge to gradually loosen the glue.
    2. Then heat the next part and insert the picks one by one.

    Use a suction cup to lift the glass if you can’t find anywhere to insert the tool

  3. Loosen the heat shield

    Honor 10 - Loosen the heat shield 01
    Honor 10 - Loosen the heat shield 02
    Honor 10 - Loosen the heat shield 03

    All components in the device are covered by a black graphite foil, which serves for better heat distribution.

    1. Loosen the foil on the upper side and fold it down.
    2. You can heat the adhesive again to loosen it more easily.
  4. Disconnect the battery

    Honor 10 - Disconnect the battery 01
    Honor 10 - Disconnect the battery 02
    Honor 10 - Disconnect the battery 03
    Honor 10 - Disconnect the battery 04
    Honor 10 - Disconnect the battery 05
    • 3 × 2,8 mm Phillips
    • Battery connector

    Before starting the repair, always disconnect the battery contact first to prevent short circuits and avoid accidentally turning on your device during the repair.

    1. Use a phillips screwdriver (PH00) to remove the phillips screws. Then take off the cover. The cover is hooked under on the upper side. Put all the parts in the same section of your magnetic pad.
    2. Using the spudger, carefully disconnect the battery contact from the motherboard. Use a plastic tool to avoid short circuits.

    Always lever from a side where there are no small components on the mainboard. This way you avoid damage.

  5. Remove the cameras

    Honor 10 - Remove the cameras 01

    Honor 10 - Remove the cameras 07
    • 4 × 3,4 mm Phillips
    • 2 × 2,8 mm Phillips
    • Camera connector

    Next, remove the two camera modules. The camera contacts are secured with a cover.

    1. Loosen all Phillips screws first. One of them is covered with a small white sticker.

    The screws in Honor 10 have different lengths. Be careful not to mix them up.

    1. Then carefully lever the cover loose with a pair of tweezers. The cover is hooked in several places.
    2. Next loosen the connectors carefully with a spudger.
    3. Finally remove both cameras from the device.

    Make sure that no dirt or fingerprints get on the camera lenses.

  6. Remove the mainboard

    Honor 10 - Remove the mainboard 01
    Honor 10 - Remove the mainboard 02
    Honor 10 - Remove the mainboard 03
    Honor 10 - Remove the mainboard 04
    Honor 10 - Remove the mainboard 05
    Honor 10 - Remove the mainboard 06
    • Antenna connector
    • USB flex cable connector
    • Display connector

    Several flexible flat cables and an antenna are still connected to the mainboard.

    1. Loosen the contacts of the flexbile flat cables with the spudger. The cables connect the display and the USB board to the motherboard.
    2. Loosen the antenna cable carefully by turning the tweezers. Do not lever off the contact with a spudger. There is a danger of damaging the socket on the circuit board.
    3. Remove the SIM card holder if it is still in the device.
    4. Carefully lever the board up a little and then take it out.
  7. Remove the speaker

    Honor 10 - Remove the speaker 01
    Honor 10 - Remove the speaker 02
    Honor 10 - Remove the speaker 03
    Honor 10 - Remove the speaker 04
    • 4 × 2,8 mm Phillips
    • 3 × 3,4 mm Phillips

    The speaker is fixed with several screws, lightly glued and hooked to the frame.


    1. First fold over the heat shield.
    2. Loosen the Phillips screws of different lengths. Sort them on a magnetic mat, for example, so you don't mix them up when you insert them again.
    3. Then lever the speaker in several places until you can lift it a little and remove it.
  8. Remove the USB-C board

    Honor 10 - Remove the USB-C board 01
    Honor 10 - Remove the USB-C board 02
    Honor 10 - Remove the USB-C board 03
    Honor 10 - Remove the USB-C board 04
    Honor 10 - Remove the USB-C board 05
    Honor 10 - Remove the USB-C board 06
    • Antenna connector
    • USB flex cable connector
    • Fingerprint connector
    1. First remove the flex cable running over the battery.
    2. Loosen the connector and remove the cable.
    3. Use tweezers again to release the black antenna cable and lever it out of the metal clamps.
    4. Loosen the small contact for the fingerprint sensor.
    5. Carefully lever the USB board up with a spudger. Push it away from the frame at the bottom to release it.
    6. Then remove the board from the device. Make sure that the rubber seals for the USB socket and headphone socket remain on the board. If they remain in the case, take them out and attach them to the board.
  9. Remove the battery

    Honor 10 - Remove the battery 01
    Honor 10 - Remove the battery 02
    Honor 10 - Remove the battery 03
    Honor 10 - Remove the battery 04
    Honor 10 - Remove the battery 05

    The battery is glued into the case generously.

    1. You can loosen the glue more easily by warming it up again. But never heat the battery directly, heat it from the display.
    2. Slide a flat tool like the iPlastix under the battery.
    3. If you can't get it under the battery, you can also use a wider, more stable tool like the Battery Spudger.
    4. Then move a flat tool around and gradually lift the battery out of the device.

    Try to bend the battery as little as possible and take care not to damage the surface.

  10. Remove the earpiece and the antenna

    Honor 10 - Remove the earpiece and the antenna 01

    1. The earpiece is lightly glued into the device.

    3. Note the orientation of the golden contacts to insert the earpiece correctly later.
    4. Pull the black antenna out of its sideways guide.
  11. Transfer standby and volume keys (optional)


    1. Check if your replacement display already has standby and volume keys built in. If not, you have to copy them from the old display.
    2. Heat the flex cable with the four golden contact surfaces and loosen it carefully with a steel spatula or another very thin tool.
    3. Drive the steel spatula between the cable and the housing frame and loosen the adhesive there as well.
    4. Remove the component from the frame with the buttons.
    5. Lever out the silver clip that fixes the buttons in the frame.

    7. Install all parts in the new display. Make sure that the silver clip fixes the keys and the buttons work.
  12. Prepare the new display

    Honor 10 - Prepare the new display 01
    1. Now compare your display with the new replacement display and check if you still need to take over small parts such as seals.
