简介

The HTC Vive's lenses can become scratched, cracked, or dirty with use. This guide will show you how to replace one or both of the HTC Vive lenses.

    Holy cow. Thank you for adding this comment Oscar. I was just about to break it.

    These screws are T6.

    • Remove the two 4mm Philips #00 screws holding the sensor array to the midframe.

    During this step, there should be a picture of the flip side showing 4 more Philips screws hidden deep inside the headset. Removing those additional 4 screws is critical to getting the headset opened and continuing to the next step.

    This guide is grossly incomplete. Do NOT try to pull up the sensor array after taking these five screws off. There are 8 more screws that have to be removed, as well as 2 tabs that need to be pushed before the sensor array comes off.

    -Two screws on the bottom (by the camera) to each side. There are four screws here, but only the outermost two need to be taken off. See the two sensors on the bottom? The screws under the outside corner of each sensor are the ones you remove.

    -Two screws on the top, to the right and left of the cable opening.

    -Four screws on the back, to the left and right of the lenses. Turn the Vive around, the screws are deep inside four holes.

    -Finally, two tabs on the bottom by the camera. If you look closely you will see them!

  10. Be careful not to lift the sensor array too far from the rest of the device because the camera ribbon cable may tear. Lift the sensor array away from the rest of the Vive until the camera cable tugs back and hold it in place. The camera ribbon cable must be pulled out of its socket vertically, as opposed to all other ribbon cables which slide out horizontally.

    Sure, but how do you get a replacement array?

    It starts with “lift the sensor array" but how am I supposed to do that? Its not just lifting off after unscrewing & disconnecting. What am I missing here?

Or… you can simply use an exacto knife and pry the lenses out without taking the entire HMD apart!

You can insert a scalpel type knife between the lens and the housing and work your way around.

I’ve got to agree . This is the absolute worst way to do what’s essentially a simple operation. So many ways this could go wrong for the user if they’re not careful.

This reeks of click bait re-purposing of the tear-down coverage.

Ian Kennedy -

This has to be the most overly complicated approach for a VERY simple fix. Takes about 5 seconds to pop out the lenses by carefully prying at the flat edge with a butter knife, exacto knife, etc.

Agreed! what rubbish…

We are showing you the most technical and professional way to take out the lens. Remember this is just a guide. You can use whichever way you most comfortable to take apart your HTC.

Huy Duong - 回复

I think the most professional way is the way that puts the device in the least risk. While this is an incredible teardown manual, you have the same risk at the end popping the lens out as you would performing the extraction externally using light heat, a thin pry tool, and some patience. Most pop out on the first try depending on the age of the unit/glue. Being that there is no risk to the damaged lenses you are replacing if that is the reason, there is no reason to put forth such an effort. There is nothing unprofessional about that except the labor charge if providing the service would be less to a customer, which if paid on time would make it not professionally feasible, so charge for the job. This feels like removing the engine from a car to change the oil.

Does anybody knows where we could buy replacement lenses ?

Mine are getting quit used now and have a few scratches

Md Spycho - 回复

You can replace them with Samsung Gear VR lenses (#SM-R323). There are several tutorials searching (vive lens mod) on youtube. This not only provides lenses to replace them but greatly improved clarity and reduced god rays. Only downside is the increased clarity can show more screen door effect, however it is well worth it. This is applicable to the Vive and Vive Pro by the way. I have a pro and it is fantastic with the new lenses in them. A side note is that they are precision glass lenses, and can be had on eBay for about $20-$30. I have a spare set as well.
