Replacing My Samsung Galaxy S3 Front Glass Screen




What do you think about this video?

dixienormus93: maybe using tape would hold the pieces together and make the screen come off as a whole unit?

Dominic D'Maestro: What about the sensor cable disconnection and re-connection?

Nigley Wiggle: try a flame thrower

MRmanpower21: does this guy sound like he is speaking some kind of star trek language at 9:10 when he is heaps excited

Sacoya Hicks: does anyone in kennesaw ga does this but with The LCD replacement i ordered the front screen glass replacement 

Online Gadget Store: Thank you for this one. It is a little complicated but it is worth it at the end. Just make sure that you follow all the directions because it may lead to worse situations if not. If you are not confident, then, just bring it to Samsung. They will surely do better but also with a better price. 

jorjthemorj: is that a hairdryer? what temperature is needed for melting the glue

Nicholas Tsaoucis: i found that a piece of thread was better for removing teh screen after you start with the knife, so you dont damage the digitiser, also tape to hold the pieces together, for saftey and ease

stone reptile: This sucks man this sucks! Why did it have to break?! WHY?!!!!

islamSource: quick question if anyone knows the answer. Is it possible to change the cover of an S3 from pebble blue to white

Pat's Place: Smashed my bloody phone. the vid to fix it looks rock hard Replacing my Samsung Galaxy S3 Front Glass Screen

budubum: ok. i guess ill just have to leave this to the store thenm.

ashley Marie: from the very beginning i was hoping youd freak up the button flex cable for starting from the bottom -_-. you werent supposed to use a pry took either, rather a few guitar picks available in kits (my fav being ifixit's), or in the very least if you were patient the razor blades. it probably took you so long too because you werent patient with the blow dryer. it takes about 5 minutes initially with an actual heat gun no higher than 180 degrees. all i have to say is wow. good attempt though.

rcazangi: I only can give the link to the one I used -- see on the video description.

James Smith: How do seal the new screen since you took off all the glue?? Which glue do you use?

Andrew Talbot: I just watched this video before replacing my screen. Half way through removing small pieces of glass I realised you and I both were peeling apart the laminate, rather than removing the screen as a single piece. You would have realised this and removed the underneath layer also, but still posted this video without making reference to it. Once I got the leverage under the whole screen it came off within a couple of minutes, not the hours it was taking you. Do not use this video as a guide!

rcazangi: For sure.

JazzCity09: Hi Great video, so no glue was necessary??? just the one already existing on the phone?

Shawn Forbes: did you clear out all the old glue & crud before installing the new screen?

rcazangi: I don't speak Spanish but I got your questions. Just the glass is enough if the touch is working normally.

rcazangi: You can do it yourself but there's always a risk for you to end up damaging even more the device. It's up to you.

emdicadam: Thanks!

mmorphed: You started to remove glass from the bottom , it was your mistake. Next time start from the top to the bottom.

Robert Klein: "From the top to the bottom, bottom to top, I stop" is the answer for me.

Joshua Alicea: I have to say I thought the same, but then I noticed this is without any instruction so u have to give to him on effort

mezonesxbox: *heat the inside with hair dryer. phone in bag*

mhatthei: 9:09 ... oppa? OPPA! oppa gangnam style.

mhatthei: *eat play nap happy*

rcazangi: No

rcazangi: Mine had some glue leftover on the sides. I also use a case that holds the screen in place.

Edgar Gionet: Ok, couple of things: A) Place tape on your screen to prevent little shards of glass from flying. B) No higher than 160 degrees for a long period of time will turn that glue into liquid, making much easier. C) MOST IMPORTANT> DO NOT START AT BOTTOM! Start from the top of your phone near the earpiece. When you get to the touch buttons, be careful as there is a ribbon cable that you will need to remove from the glass Carefully!

Laurel S: if mine is still touch-sensitive but has a cracked screen, that means I only need to replace the LCD right? I don't need to order a new digitizer?

anet mac: I wondering if setting in hot sun could work also?

Nitin Toms: cracked the LCD and now my phone is useless...

Batidas e Rachas: oi amigo, esotu seguindo o seu tutorial mas a cola nao desgruda do lcd do meu s3 de jeito nenhum, ja tentei o pano de oculos, de microfibra, ate passei alcool no lcd windex, nao desgruda de jeito nenhum, liguei o aparelho pra ver se funciona e ta tudo ok, mas me ajuda nesse etapa por favor, alguma sugestao ? vlw

D0tam4n: hey dude so what happens if you try to pry the glass too hard and the lcd lifts up"? i heard that fux it up.

rcazangi: Why should I worry about this? I'm not here selling or promising anything -- I'm suggesting one idea to help others in the same situation. And many many others have followed the procedure with success -- just read the comments. Not to mention a bunch of other videos doing exact the same thing -- just search around. I achieved what I wanted: repaired my own phone and helped others do the same.

Josh Freeman: can i see what this looks like

TheAMA911: can u give me a link to a trusted ebay screen seller? thanks

Drakker: Can this be done in an authorized service?

rcazangi: Ideally yes. I haven't had any problems but If I were doing this again, I'd for sure put some tape.

George241312: If its black then that means your LCD is cracked as well as your touch screen you can only fix it by getting the LCD and Digitizer Assembly ...

rcazangi: Não vem cola na tela nova. Sim, deve limpar mas nas bordas não precisa. Vc pode tambem usar uma fita dupla face.

rcazangi: Search on XDA developers.

Frank Shang: I cracked my screen when I banged it against the edge of my marble fireplace. At first, the damage seemed minor with a small crack at the top left corner. But then, the digitizer stopped working, and the display gradually turned purple. I tried to prise it open with a hairdryers and made it worse. Well, fortunately it couldn't get any worse. AMOLED + Glass + Digitizer was broken. End of. Took £140 to fix.

Ricardo Hernandez: so according to my brother. How do i know you are not alterning or changing between screens or how do i know its not a different phone. He kind of has a point. But i guess i have to trust my gut

Jose M. Perez: I fixed mine in about an hour. Very easy. Used the same glue that was left on phone. But I would recommend adding a little bit of double sided tape for more insurance....

ntsosnowball: could be the broken glass is messing with your sensor. i had this problem

Tom: I have dealt with many digitizer and lcd replacements in my time, I would not recommend using a hair dryer, especially that close to the phone. I have had to pay out of pocket to replace the lcd after cracking it due to the heat. If you get a heating gun with a tip that concentrates the heat in one small area, with adjustable settings, your risk of damaging further components is reduced exponentially. I mean think about it a hair dryers output is huge

rcazangi: They only change the entire assembly (digitizer + screen) which costs much more even though makes your phone be like new.
