Glass only repair for phones and tablets

Hi All, we currently repair mobile phones/tablets etc.

However we are now looking to get into glass repair as well

We are looking to get a freezer and all the relevant laminating equipment, is there any guides out there as to how to use these? or does anyone currently use them that would be happy to provide us with some information.

Thanks everyone

David

Refurbishing is a completely different “art” compared to regular repair, and unfortunately, there aren’t may refurbishers who patrol this forum. You could check out the iFixit Pro Forum (pro.ifixit.com) and also join the refurbishing related groups on Facebook or Reddit. Hopefully there you will find the info you need.

Just don’t forget to come back here once you have the knowledge so that you can share with the rest of the community.

There are a few groups you should look into:

LCD Refurbishment Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/52574232...

I used to be in that group but it got into too many flamewars for a passive observer like me.

LCD + OLED Refurbish tips and tricks

https://www.facebook.com/groups/18388720...

Just do a search for LCD refurbish when in Facebook.

@drphone2019 A couple of years ago I came across this company - Rewa Technology, they do LCD refurbishing for iPhone and iPad, link to forum: https://blog.rewatechnology.com/tips-and...

You may also want to check out their YouTube channel, here's a video on iPad Air 2 glass only repair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC2L1bQw...

Lastly, they carry all the necessary tools and equipment for screen refurbishing, link: https://shop.rewa.tech/type/cell-phone-r...

Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with this company in any way, they should give me a dollar for endorsement though :)

See how u go with the usual heating method on a hot plate, some oca and autoclave first its really boring work though lol

Hot plate take glass off

Oca remover make sure its heated correctly and blades are clean

Place the oca

Place the glass and put it into the press

Finally autoclave the only nice stage

All stages are extremely soul destroying lol
