1. what are the most common problem customers have

2. where can i find good whole sale suppliers

3. what sort of inventory would i need.

4. what tools would i need.

if someone could assist me in know where to start i would really appreciate it. if I'm asking this question in the wrong place or if you somewhere else where i could find more support that would also be great.

thank you,

Jubelot

Hola como estas!! disculpa que te lo escriba en español pero es que tendría que escribir demasiado en ingles y no soy muy bueno!!!

Vas a dar un gran paso y para eso debes estar bien preparado, tener un excelente equipo y mucho conocimiento. deberías de empezar comprándote el equipo Pro de reparación en general.

1-El o Los problemas con los que los clientes mas buscan un centro técnico es para cambio de pantalla, pin de carga dañado, táctil dañado y cel en negro (que no hace nada).

2-Todo depende, tienes que recordar que si quieres buenos precios deberías comprar piezas al por mayor, normalmente los chinos tienen todo eso.

3-Necesitarías de todo, pantallas, pines de carga, táctiles, baterías, cargadores, cables usb, accesorios.

4-Como te mencione mas arriba, debes de tener herramientas Pro, destornilladores, pinzas, soldador, desarmadores, pulsera anti estática, etc.

Suerte y que te valla bien, recuerda todos los negocios al principio son difíciles.

Google Translate (Spanish)

Hello how are you doing!! apology you write it in Spanish but I would have to write in English too and I'm not very good !!!

You are about to take a big step and it must be well prepared, have an excellent team and a lot of knowledge. You should start by buying the Pro computer repair in general.

1- The o Problems with customers seeking a more technical center is to change screen, load pin damaged, damaged touch and cel in black (which does nothing).

2-all depends, you have to remember that if you want good prices should buy wholesale parts, usually the Chinese have all that.

3-You would need all, screens, load pins, tactile, batteries, chargers, USB cables, accessories.

4-As you mentioned above, must have Pro tools, screwdrivers, pliers, soldering iron, screwdrivers, anti static wrist strap, etc.

Good luck and you fence well, remember all businesses at first are difficult.

Google Translate says this is Haitian Creole and it just doesn't translate it. Please post your answers in a language that will translate so they will be of benefit to others..

Translate to english seems to work fine but anyway. What does he mean by load pins? What are they?

Separating machine was mentioned on one of these answers. I think they shouldn't be used for starters and should be used after the person has repaired many phones.

Ben sounds like dock connectors, lightning port etc. to me.

Yes, charging ports for Android phones break a lot. S3 is a staple repair.

Ben. I have no idea because it's not translated!

Jubelot on this forum "Answers" you find plenty of volunteers that will help you with any repair. Some of the great volunteers have their own business but we still focus on repairs. Here we focus on providing free help and are not concerned about how many people we can entice to use our fee-for-service. A while back ifixit came up with a forum strictly for the "pro's" I'd suggest you pop in there and see what their advice is.
