So, you have cracked the front panel on your iPad. Do you try to change it yourself or just buy a new one?. Learn here these 5 things to fix a smartphone or tablet.
Before trying to fix a smartphone or tablet you must know that five things
1. Repair at your own risk
Before doing any repairs, you should understand that you do it at your own risk.
You can get injured and you can damage the device beyond repair.
If the damage is covered under warranty, then take it back to the manufacturer
If the device still works and you actually screw it, then without it, you can not afford it, unless you can buy a new one
If you have eliminated all your other options, then you should try only repair and there is no worry about breaking the device.
Just remember that neither CNET, nor Tech Ripper, nor you can be held responsible for your injury, damage or loss of data.
2. Getting replacement parts can be difficult, even impossible
Once you decide to fix your device, the next step will be the replacement parts.
Unfortunately, this can be a real pain
It is not that there is a smartphone parts store on the corner of every street and it is not easy to buy replacement parts for the average person’s makers.
Fortunately, internet is your friend. There are many sites that later sell the market and OEM replacement parts for smartphones and tablets.
If none of these are your part, try eBay, even if you can not find different components, you can get a broken unit through which you can see this part.
3. Get the right equipment
With your spare part in hand or at least transit, you will need to ensure that you have the necessary equipment to fix the device
Some devices, such as new iPhones and MacBook Air, require special screwdrivers to open.
Many devices use standard Torx and Philips screws, but they are actually very small
I recommend taking a small screwdriver set with hex, torque, phillips, triangular wings, and nut driver bits.
Because sometimes you do not know what you do inside that phone.
You would also like to select some tools to help eliminate the external case of your device and pop out.
I use the opening of these thin metal and plastic cases, but tweezers, spagheers and even a hairdryer or a heat gun are also good on hand.
4. Prepare the place of work properly
Okay, I have all the parts and tools, and I’m sticking a bit to fix my phone,
I know – I’ll keep everything on the kitchen table and I will start opening this bad boy, right?
No. Take a few minutes and prepare your work area.
Remove any fluid that can be spill or objects that can fall on the device.
Ensure that you have large parts to work and in space so that all the parts can be neatly excluded. And, create a safe place for you to remove all small screws and small components.
Some things are more frustrating than crawling around the floor in search of lost screw or spilling.
Finally, consider wearing electrostatic discharge or ESD security by wearing grounding wrist strap or using antithetic mat.
5. Take your time, do not force anything, and document the process
My last recommendation is that you take your time, do not force anything, and document the process.
If you are having trouble removing the cover of your phone, you probably did not remove a hidden screw
If you can not separate the panel in front of your tablet, you may need to heat the adhesive, which keeps it in place.
Try not to force anything, because when you are likely to break your device, it still exists.
