Samsung Galaxy Gear Motherboard Replacement

15 minutes


My Problem

My Galaxy Gear wasn't working anymore. Nothing when I try to turn it on or when I plug it.

I gave it back to Samsung to have it fixed.

Gave them 85€ so that they tell me 1 month later that my watch is too much oxidized to be fixed. They gave me back my watch and my money saying they couldn't do anything.

My Fix

I managed to order a motherboard on iFixit for 15$ and 15min after receiving the package, my watch was saying Hello to me.

I'm really glad that iFixit was here to help me when even the official manufacturer let me down.

My Advice

With a clear tutorial, it was simple for me to do the repair and everything went fine.

A big Thanks to iFixit ! I'll be sure to tell about you around me !
