Micro-Soldering Repairs for iPhone, iPad, Samsung, & More

In past year we’ve spent a lot of time and effort developing a few of our technicians into experts at micro-soldering repairs. We’ve sent people to soldering classes, purchased high-end equipment, spent tons of time researching, done a bunch of practicing, and fixed a lot of real-world, broken devices. We’ve become very good at diagnosing and fixing board-level problems because of these investments.

Samsung Galaxy not charging? You probably need a new charging port.

Is your Samsung Galaxy not charging? Or maybe you spend 5 minutes wiggling the cord around to make it work? You probably have a bad charging port.

We can fix that.

Over the past year we’ve purchased some high-end soldering equipment and trained some of our best technicians in the art of intricate solder work. This enables us to repair the charging port on many Samsung phones by simply desoldering the existing, broken charge port and soldering on a new one. This process saves you a significant amount of money on the repair. Continue reading “Samsung Galaxy not charging? You probably need a new charging port.”

Has your iPhone’s touch screen stopped working for no apparent reason? Are you seeing gray bars at the top? Then you probably have the dreaded iPhone touch disease. This is where the solder on a small Integrated Circuit (IC Chip) fails and causes the touch screen on your iPhone to stop working (you will usually see gray bars at the top of your screen, too).

Your question might be, “Can you fix this?”

Our answer: “Yeah, we can fix that.”

Fixing Your Grayed Out Wi-Fi on Your iPhone

“Help! I just updated my iOS and now my iPhone’s Wi-Fi is grayed out and not working.”

This is a real problem that our customers ask us about and the internet is full of various threads addressing this. Even Apple has a page dedicated to trying to help people with this. Their solution on that page is pretty simple – just reset your network settings. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to work very often and Apple’s second solution, if your phone is out of warranty, is to buy a new iPhone.

We have another option.

Even More Inexpensive Samsung Phone Repairs

About 18 months ago we announced that we were fixing Samsung Galaxy S3 screens – our first Samsung phone repair. Since then we’ve added the Galaxy S4 & S5 and Samsung Note 2 & 3. All of these repairs include the parts, labor, and a lifetime warranty. Most of these repairs can be done in 2-3 hours (same day repair service if you come into one of our stores).

But it gets even better: You can now get your Samsung glass replaced for 10%-30% less. Continue reading “Even More Inexpensive Samsung Phone Repairs”

Speed is the Key to Saving a Water Damaged Cell Phone

A few months ago I wrote a post about why water damage repairs often fail. It also mentioned why we stopped offering liquid damage service. Since then I’ve been in contact with a few people and companies that have let me know the problem with most water damage repairs and how we could drastically improve upon our old process. So like Justin Timberlake might say, we’re bringing water damage back. Continue reading “Speed is the Key to Saving a Water Damaged Cell Phone”

Finally – Affordable iPhone 5 Screen Replacement Options

For almost a year now we’ve been waiting for the cost of an iPhone 5 screen replacement part to drop to a reasonable price. That has finally happened. At first glance, you might not think that price is reasonable (about $100 at the time of this writing and falling) but it’s cheap compared to what it was in early June – when it cost almost $200.
