Everyone has had a phone that has been damaged by being dropped, being exposed to water, becoming unresponsive and even worse. Cellular phones have the capacity to carry out many tasks and they can be used to do anything, if not everything, that a desktop or laptop computer can do. Needless to say, when your personal bank, schedule, task manager, gaming center and grocery list cease to function properly it can cause devastating effects.
Some problems can be as simple as restarting your phone, being careful how long you keep it on it’s charger or being careful how many different apps or games you have running at once. These are more DIY (Do It Yourself) solutions that require little to no knowledge of the inner workings of a cellular phone. However, some problems require a certified technician to analyze and repair the phone in order that the device will be cared for in an environment best suited for phone repair.
What about the incidents that CAN be fixed by DIY but are better suited for a specialist? As a company that specializes in phone and other mobile device repair, we would hate to see a worst-case scenario and recommend that we properly analyze, isolate and provide a solution for the issue. However, if you feel the need to take on the task of repairing the issue yourself, there are repair kits or other solutions that can be utilized for DIY repairs.
There are some issues that may seem like one thing, but could be from something completely different. It’s always best to troubleshoot and verify what the issue is or where it is coming from before attempting to do it yourself. Not all hardware issues with your phone can be repaired easily, but there are various issues that can be.
Depending on the model of your phone and how it’s built is the difference between a fairly simple repair and a very expensive one. Either way, it’s required to disassemble your phone and use the proper toolkit to get the issue resolved. If the screen materials (link to screen materials) used to compose your display and digitizer (layer translating touch from your finger, hand, or stylus into input) is fused together, the replacement will be rather expensive.
If the display and digitizer are not fused together, it is possible to replace the display or digitizer individually by verifying what type of display, display size and/or digitizer your model phone uses. Otherwise, if the display and digitizer are fused together, a data cable will need to be connected (varying per model).
