Have any of you replaced your broken phone screen yourself?
The Missus has cracked her Samsung screen and has been quoted £100 for it to be replaced. A quick Google tells me I can buy one for £12.99 off eBay, which includes all the tools I need. I've also watched a YouTube vid, and it 'looks' easy enough.

Any of you tried doing it?

Get your 10 yr old niece/nephew to fix it. Good Luck.

"Keep careful track of all the screws/parts you take out of the phone"

One of those old "Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday" pill boxes is also useful for such things.

Re: Have any of you replaced your broken phone screen yourself?
I've done hundreds. My kids were constantly breaking their phones so I decided to learn how to fix them myself. I've progessed to buying broken phones and fixing them up for friends, family or profit.

As stated by others, its a fiddly job and you have to be the type of person that is careful and methodical or you could do more damage. However it's not rocket science and just a matter of replacing the damaged phone part.

The screen quality of the £12.99 screen is likely to be way worse than the original Samsung and likely to be more fragile, but it will do the job. My kids have never noticed a difference. Always test it before you permantly fix it to the phone. If there are any problems like lines, blemishes or parts of the screen unresponsive to touch then send if back. It's not uncommon for there to be a fault with a cheap screen, but I've got a refund in all cases it's happened to me, provided it's never been glued and in it's original state.

Also it's worth making sure it's compatible with your specific model number which will be on the back of the phone somewhere. e.g. I'm looking at a Samsung A70 that couldn't be repaired and the model number is SM-A505F. Some models have international varaints that have slightly different sizes or cable layout. Your screen is most likely coming from China so you need to make sure its for your specific model variant.

It's been a long while since I've worked on a Samsung as the parts were too pricey to be worth fixing and I had a couple of failures, but I seem to remember that their general design was to have the screen closely integrated into the casing of the main components. Many replacement screens came with this housing and you just moved all the other components from the old phone to the new housing. If the screen is just the screen with no housing it will be a slighly fidlier job than other brands to remove the old screen from the housing and fit the new one perfectly, but I've done it before with success.
Tips:
If the screen is glued make sure you get the phone nice and warm with a hair dryer/heat gun. It makes removal MUCH easier if you take the time to warm it properly.
Remove ALL the bits of glue\\glass from the rim of the housing before trying to fit the new screen. Be very anal about it, otherwise you will have gaps for water/dust or pressure points to break the new screen.
The tools that come with the screen will be rubbish. I have about 50 of these sets as they always send them with the screen. I never use them. If you don't have any other tools then you may get by with them, but use your own if you can.
Keep careful track of all the screws/parts you take out of the phone. Some screws will only fit the location they come out of. A magnetic mat is great for this.

Send me a whomail if you want any more advice. Happy for you to call me if you get stuck.

Re: Have any of you replaced your broken phone screen yourself?
Not done an android phone, but have done quite a few iphones. By and large nine times out of ten it is fairly straightforward, but every so often it goes wrong because the cables and connectors are about half a gnat's cock in size and you end up crunching one, or bending it which can mare something up.
I personally would not try it on a latest and greatest phone, but if it is a couple of models out, it is well worth a go.

Re: Have any of you replaced your broken phone screen yourself?
Yes, I did it quite a few times for myself and my own family members. If you have steady hands and a patient temperament you'll find it a breeze following the online instructions.

One thing to consider is the replacement screens you get online are of variable quality. With Apple phones, it's pretty much impossible to get the same quality screen as the one you are replacing and it shows. So I stopped doing them and just (reluctantly) pay Apple. I am not sure if it's the same with Samsung, but it probably is. Depends on how much you care about the screen quality. The problems range from having a slightly bluish tinge to vertical lines appearing down the screen.

There's a site called i fixit.

Find the phone there and theyll provably have simple instructions gor you.

Re: Have any of you replaced your broken phone screen yourself?
I did it with an iPad

Fiddly and I reckon I should have bought a couple of kits because it is a bit of a bodge. I might do to again. Practice and all that

Re: Have any of you replaced your broken phone screen yourself?
I did it once with an older phone than my current one.

Like you, I bought the correct tools from eBay and watched a YouTube video on how to replace it.
