What to do if you crack your tablet screen?

There are so many different types of tablets on the market these days and finding a place that can fix them can be daunting.  The most common tablet screen repair requires fixing the glass screen.  When people refer to a broken “screen” it usually consists of just the glass digitize screen , which controls the touch function but it could also include the LCD which shows the picture.

The majority of tablet screen repairs fix the glass digitize screen only.  Sometimes the LCD also needs to be replaced which will make the repair more expensive.  Let’s take a look at some common types of tablet screen repairs on the market.

The Apple iPad is probably the most common type of tablet screen repair most repair shops see.  There are close to 10 different models of iPads on the market today and replacing the glass screen and LCD can range from being affordable to it being cheaper to replace the tablet.   For example, the iPad mini has the glass and LCD separate so if the glass is cracked and you can still see the picture all you need to fix is the glass or digitizer screen.

In contrast, the iPad Air 2 has a screen assembly which means the glass digitize screen and the LCD are fused together, if one or the other is cracked then you’d need to replace both and that can be expensive.  As a general rule, the LCD is the most expensive part of the screen assembly.

Another common tablet on the market is the Samsung Tablet known as the Tab.  There are quite a few different Tab models on the market so if you need to have your Samsung tablet screen repair it’s best to know your exact model before you start shopping around for repair quotes.

The Samsung tablet is like the iPad, some of the models have a screen assembly together (glass & LCD) and some have separate glass digitize screens and separate LCD.  And just like the iPad, some models are very affordable to fix while others are cheaper to just replace the tablet with another.

How to fix a water damaged phone

Customers often ask what is the best thing to do if they get a water damaged iPhone. And what I tell them is back up, back up, back up. Of course this doesn’t help after the fact.  So what really is important is to power off the device. And get it to a cellphone repair store like Fixit Phone Repair. If your unable to get it to a repair store quickly than shutting off the device. Removing the battery from water damaged iPhone is imperative. Some cellphones require special tools to open it, or you need to break the back glass of the phone to access the battery.

If you can’t do any of the above than the best option by far is to drying the phone. Put the water damaged iPhone under a lamp and turn a small fan on.  To keep a constant air flow over the device. Or better yet, if available, use a small hair dryer on low setting and keep it about a foot away from the water damaged iPhone. This will really accelerate the drying process.

Don’t try to use the Water damaged iPhone. Don’t plug it in, don’t try to turn it on again…just leave it alone.
Remember, water and electricity don’t mix and water corrodes so drying the moisture is the first priority. If you are reckless and try to use the device without trying to dry it first than you will most definitely cause a short circuit on the logic board and ruin the device.

Repair an iPhone from Water Damaged

What happens when I bring my water damaged iPhone to a repair store to get it fixed? Our store will run a water diagnostic, which entails opening the water damaged iPhone and physically drying the interior components one by one. We will then remove the logic board and perform an alcohol wash which will remove any corrosion. After all the components are thoroughly dry we will begin testing the device. Many times the screen or the battery short out first which turns the device off and the main damage is just to those individual parts. This is a your most favorable situation as replacing those components are usually inexpensive. If the logic board suffered damage then micro soldering may be required. This may or may not fix the short, if the short circuit can’t be found the phone may damaged beyond repair and at that point replacing the device is your only option.

If you’re able to turn on a water damaged iPhone again than doing a backup immediately is suggested. As mentioned before water corrodes metal and once corrosion starts it’s like a cancer to the phone, eventually it will take over and conquer.
