dixienormus93: maybe using tape would hold the pieces together and make the screen come
off as a whole unit?
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
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
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.
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*
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.
kamalirobinson: ok so I changed my cracked using a old galaxy s3 I had. but the screen wont
turn on. plese help
spydirtek: Might be getting one of these in the near future for a steal of a deal
because of the broken screen, and might have to perform the same procedure.
I have done this before on iPhones, and I assume the process is similar.
Next time this happens you should lay a piece of tape across the glass to
get all the tiny pieces out at once, save yourself the headache of tweezing
out the tiny pieces one by one...
Momchil Milev: Charles, your digitizer is broken obviously, but you can buy a glass with a
digitizer cheaply from e-bay (look out, some ask too much!) -- I got mine
from nypc-tech and it is perfect samsung quolity! Your phone could be
rcazangi: I'm not a professional and was trying this without virtually any
instructions or previous examples. I agree many things should be done
differently -- which is easy to say now 1 year later after so many people
have tried, learned from mistakes and mastered the ideal approach.
Alex Bea: There were no hardware problems after this? I'm concerned about the effect
of the heat, though it makes sense that the assembly would get very hot
during original construction.
Blog Dir: Building the website was not the hard part, but monetizing it was a whole new story. Thanks for the guidance about adsense. I am finally getting some money for my business directory. This is good for both business owners and customers. Keep building quality site and everyone wins.
