Answer to: How do I fix my cracked screen?Hi, yes these are a pain to fix. Hint: if you purchase "DOA" panels to save the AMOLED do a quick test with a UV lamp first. This way you don't waste time trying a panel that is cracked internally. It does not pick up ones with bad interconnects but if water has got in you'll see patches where fluorescence is absent compared with the rest. This also picks up units where someone screwed up and tried to cut their losses selling panels on with heat damage, in this case you'll see a circular patch or two where fluorescence is far weaker. Great for finding hidden screen burn as well.
Answer to: My samsung won't charge, and isn't the battery's fault.Changing charge port is feasible but as others say the S3 problem is usually bad battery. A dead giveaway, if you take it out and meter it instead of typical 3.5 to 3.7V you will see 3.05V, if so then no amount of reconditioning will work. Although some folks suggested connecting it in parallel with a smaller battery then running the combination down to 2.6V and recharging, a half dozen times as sometimes this works, in my experience it does not help. The "theory" behind this fix is that the negative electrode has got into a resistive state due to overcharging and getting it past this point reverses the damage however its normally irreversible.
