LCD Refurbishing - A service to replace the glass of cracked phone screen left after repair, which allows to reuse Cracked Screens again saving a decent amount on the cost of The Screen and keeping the Quality Original, Mostly Used For iPhone, iPad and Samsung Mobile Phone and Tablet Screens.
The display on a typical phone is made up of two parts, the LCD display plus a Lens or Glass that protects the delicate LCD. The display on a smartphone or iPhone is a one piece component comprising an LCD display with a touch screen sensor called a Digitizer, although sometimes the LCD and Digitizer can be separate components.
The type of digitizer can vary between handsets. The digitizer on an iPhone and more modern smartphones is made of glass and is known as a capacitive digitizer, while some older phones have a resistivity digitizer. While they both do a similar job, the newer capacitive touch screens are much better quality and are more common on newer phones.
1. Tips 1: Test before installation
- When testing, do not remove any protective film or tags. Please pay attention to the problem of static electricity.
- Before attempting any repair, be sure to ground yourself is an ESD (electro static discharge) strap. This will prevent static electricity from damaging the electronic components within the phone.
- Ensure you wear eye protection and use caution not to cut your finger with the glass splinters.
2. Tips 2: Simulates testing
- Screen replacement is very fragile product. We strongly suggest test before installation. Please simulates testing, which means mobile phone apart, (motherboard + LCD or screen) connected audio cable and new replacement, power on, test finished. If test OK, please install it. If it can not show, please contact us at the very first time. And please do not force it to be installed in mobile phone. We will not be responsible once the screen is installed.
3. Tips 3: Do not over-bend cable
- Please make sure LCD cable Do not over-bend. Over 90 degrees bent will cause black display.
Replacement for Phones
The 3 main reasons for your mobile phone LCD screen cracking, or the phone having DIGITIZER touch screen problems are:
1 The mobile phone has been dropped.
2 The mobile phone has been carried in a back pocket. This results in compression and excess pressure on the display causing it to twist and eventually crack.
3 Something heavy hit or fell on the phone.
4 If your display still works but there is a visible crack over it, then this is the lens or digitizer that has cracked and we can easily replace this part for you.
5 If the display is unreadable or has a black/blue stain on it, then this is likely to be an LCD fault and again we can easily replace this part for you.

There are so many different mobile phone models on the market (either new or used) that providing a standardized guide is next to impossible. Additionally, some models cannot be repaired without sending them back to the manufacturer.
Head to YouTube to check how your particular phone’s display can be replaced. You’ll find many detailed device-specific guides on the procedure.
Most smartphones are essentially made up of several layers of components. Each layer must be carefully detached for the glass display to be replaced.
These guides typically follow this procedure for replacing your smartphone display:
Read on to learn how to fit a replacement smartphone display.
To begin, remove (where possible) the rear cover, battery and identify where the Torx (or standard) screws might be hidden. Look under labels and beside USB ports. You might find screws in the battery cavity if you have a device with a removable cell.
Prize the phone apart using the levers and plectrum; additional screws will need removing, too.
Watch out for ribbon cables, which require careful unlatching from their connectors. Use a flat plastic blade or plectrum for this.
These are often threaded through the different layers of hardware within the phone. Ribbon cables are delicate; easily broken, take care as damage to these could change the dynamic of the repair considerably.
By now you should have the front of the phone in your hand, empty, with the glass display ready to remove. Soften the adhesive with the heat gun.
Alternatively, you can leave the phone in a warm place (such as on a radiator) for a while.
Persuading your phone’s display to part with the body isn’t usually difficult. Pushing through the camera hole against the glass to begin with, slowly prize the glass display away from the body.
As noted, some replacements are basically half a phone.
In this case, you won’t need to remove the display, but you will need to remove components (and even the motherboard) from the damaged device into the new body.
Narrow rolls of replacement adhesive can be bought online. Have some double-sided sticky tape laying around? Cut this into narrow 1 mm slivers, then apply the adhesive to the phone’s frame, rather than the glass.
Once the adhesive is in place remove the protective strips on the adhesive and push the glass into place.
Apply light pressure where the display meets the adhesive. Take care not to put pressure on the middle of the glass display. Excessive force can break even the strongest Gorilla glass.
It’s now time to put the phone back together.
Reconnect the relevant cables, locking them down where necessary. Place the components back in the case with care, checking that there are no cables or screws left over. Test the phone to check that it works.
You should be able to switch the phone on without securing the final screws in order to check functionality.
