- Did some specialized forum search for this issue and it turns out it's fungus. I had to lock up the mirror to get a good view of the sensor. There are pre-moistened swaps available to clean up a sensor. These were quite helpful. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/57...-REG/Photographic_Solutions_PE3C_Sensor_S... The procedure is easy. Nonetheless, you have to be careful when you do it.
- Try out the rice trick for 24 hours and turn it back on. if there was water inside the SIM tray then there should be more water inside. Something that might help too is to clean the metal-to-metal contacts with a soft tooth brush and isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry up and put the phone back together. This guide shows how to take the motherboard out. Nexus 4 Motherboard Replacement This might help too Good luck!
- I just helped out a friend of mine with the same problem last week. Try folding a paper sheet in the shape of a ruler and see if you can take it out by gently reaching inside the CD slot. If the card is too deep in you will have to take the Optical Drive out and shake it up a little while holding the CD slot a bit open with your fingers... The SD card will drop out easily. Here is the link to the guide to take out the optical drive. iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2308 Optical Drive Replacement Hope this helps! good luck!
- I am afraid you can't upgrade your mac. I couldn't seem to find specs on your model. What kind of processor does your macbook have? Is the case white or black? Maybe this can help you identify your mac, but for all 3 models the RAM stays the same (up to 2GB) http://support.apple.com/kb/sp18 Hope this helps.
- Most of the times a button stops working its because it has been pressed too hard. You should hear a small click sound when you press it, if it doesnt click then the contact might be damaged. Inside the iphone there is a contact plate that looks like a small metallic half bubble on a plastic plate. This conducts the electric signal for the volume to go down whenever the bubble is pressed down on the plate, which in turn has a metallic contact that connects to the mainboard. I would open up the phone and check if the problem is that small contact im telling you about. Im attaching some pics (that i took from iFixit guides btw). If this is of any help I'm also attaching the links to the parts and the guide that you would need to do the repair. iPhone 5 Audio Control and Power Button Cable Replacement
- try taking off the battery and waiting a little bit (20 seconds) and turn it on.
- ebay has a extensive list of USA and chinese stores that ship repair parts. You can do a quick search on ebay and it will give you many results, i believe that is a LCD ribbon cable. Be sure to check on the exact model of your tablet. Also, check the ratings of the online stores.
- I like this site http://www.powerbookmedic.com/15-Inch-MacBook-Unibody-Display-LCD-Screen-NEW-p-17295.html here is a description taken from that page that might help you on your question about genuine LCD "Apple does not manufacture LCD panels. They use several different manufacturers. The panels we sell are the same manufacturer and part number that originally went into the Macbook Pro Unibody. It will be the same quality and type currently in your system. The matte version LCD is interchangeable with the glossy LCD. However, the Hi-Res and the Low-Res version are not interchangeable
. There are two available resolutions for this product. The Hi-Res options are for the Core i5 and Core i7 models with the higher resolution screen." On a side note, I do prefer buying from ifixit.com ^_^
- If you are looking for specific replacement parts you can check out the tab that says Parts & Tools on the top of this page. It has a model browser that lets you identify the parts for your mac. http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts
I think you can do it, don't see any reason why it would not work a second time.
Yes it is possible. Depending on the model of your charger you might need to de-solder some copper plates on the bottom of the circuit board in order to be able to reach the spots for soldering the replacement cable.
Always happy to know of a successful repair! Good job and thanks for sharing your story ^_^
I would love to but I live in Ecuador, South America. Look for videos on YouTube, study them and look carefully at the whole process. It's not difficult once you understand how the components are put together. Good luck!
No, you don't need bonding adhesive =)
Hi! I haven't had the chance to open up a S3 mini but if it's structure is similar to the S3 I suggest to open it up an check if the display data cable is securely connected to the mainboard. Did it fall? Sometimes connectors can get unplugged by drops. I sure hope that's the case! If the screen still doesn't turn on then yeah, you need to replace the LCD. Be sure to look for the right part for your model!
Hi! I am not clear on what is it that you need. Do you want to replace the whole LCD or just the glass that covers it? If it's just the glass, in the tools section there is a link to a replacement glass. If it's the whole LCD then you can go to the device page and ifixit's store has an LCD replacement part for the S3. Hope this answers your question!
Hi, was the display working before you changed the front glass? There is no "plastic", you should had taken out the front glass that was glued to the display. I would recommend checking all the connections to the logic board.
Thanks for the tips! If you have pictures of the processes please feel free to modify this guide (especially the opening of the enclosure!) ^__^
* I have seen that in some tutorials and I wanted to to drill a hole through the rubber plastic grommet but didn't have a drill at my office =(
* I did consider de-soldering the old cables but that involved de-soldering other components that are attached to copper plates to get to those terminals. In earlier versions of the AC Adapter this can be done with not so much trouble.
I really appreciate your feedback! Thanks!
If your screen works completely fine but the glass is cracked then you just need to change the glass. If your screen has black spots or doesn't light on then you need to change the whole LCD.
