Mobile Phone Repair Tips and Caution: Guidelines and Instructions:
Use ESD-safe workstation / work bench / table:
Yes, repairing any smartphone, mobile phone, tablet, laptop or any other electronic gadget should always be done on an ESD-Safe Workbench.
An ESD-safe work bench is a table made of ESD-safe material with ESD-Safe mats, where the actual repair is done.
The entire host, including the ESD mat and the repaired job, is fully ground based.
This prevents the gadget or mobile phone from causing any potential damage due to static electricity.
Now, static electricity is an unwanted electricity or flow or electrons from one body to another.
These negatively charged electrons can harm sensitive electronic components primarily SMD (Surface Mount Device).
Such work-spaces are well-equipped so that all your equipment of regular use is within your arms and in the proper place.
1. Use the correct ESD-safe device:
Professionals do not always use alternative tools or cheap tools with professional and good quality equipment
Use only dedicated equipment for special equipment that you want to repair and fix
Many technicians use their thumb nail to open the front or back cover of a mobile phone or smartphone.
this is not right. For this purpose, the less expensive mobile opening tools made from hard plastic (ESD-SAFE) are easily available.
Similarly, for such repairing jobs, you will always need T4, T5 and T6 screw drivers.
T-4 or Phillips head screwdriver is the most common. 90% of your work will be done using Philips (+) screwdriver
Therefore, always keep your ESD-Safe Philips screwdriver.
With such organized workstation and equipment, your work will be easy and very intuitive and your customers will be very impressed.
2. ESD protection:
ESD (Electro Static Discharge) is a sudden flow of electricity between two electrical objects due to any contact between them.
For ESD protection, you have to wear ESD-safe apron, ESD-Safe slippers, ESD-safe hand gloves and anti-static wrist strap.
You should work on a well-made ASD mat. The combination of these three will ensure that any unwanted static electricity from your body will be transferred to the gadget being repaired.
Remember that your personal safety does not require ESD protection. It is for the protection of electronic components on the logic board or motherboard
PS: I have been in this area for more than 15 years and I know that most technicians do not use ESD protection
Most of them do not even know about ESD. I always prefer to stay on the safe side. What do you have to say?
3. Use ESD-Safe tray:
There are easily available and no more cost. Whenever you separate any mobile phone handset, keep all the parts in different trays of the tray.
When you re-connect the mobile phone, it will make your life much easier because you do not have to remember what parts you have kept.
All of them are already well organized in various coaches of the tray.
Remember that smartphones and mobile phones have small screws and most of these time is lost.
Using a tray with separate compartments for different parts will make your life easier.
4. Carefully handle the fragile parts:
Most portions in mobile phones or smartphones are very delicate
Take care of them, for example, make sure the LCD does not get any scratches.
Be sure to handle the connector and keep the cable carefully carefully as they are extremely fragile
5. Caring with hot air and soldering iron:
Careful use and handling of hot air machines and soling iron or soldering stations is necessary.
They can damage the gadget and harm you. The hot air machine produces hot air with very high temperatures.
Make sure the direction of the nozzle is where it should be. Turn it off when not in use. Similarly use hot solder iron with care.
Always keep iron in iron stand and do not place it on the table. Such repairing jobs also require the use of highly inflammable liquids like IPA.
To avoid high heat, they should be kept in the right place.
6. Take care of customer’s data:
Many times you need to reset the hard or factory reset or restore operating system or IMEI in the mobile phone.
During this process, data stored in mobile phone memory and even external SD card can be removed.
For some customers this data can be very important, so be sure to back up all data before display and factory reset.
