Repairing your iPod/iPhone
iphone repair, ipod repair
Breaking your iPod or iPhone can be an expensive accident. If you have insurance on your phone then by all means, you're covered. If however, you are like most people out there and do not insure their phones, there are a few options you can take. You can send your device in to an iPhone repair shop or you can order the replacement parts in and perform a DIY install. For those opting the DIY route, I strongly suggest that you familiarise yourself with the procedure by searching on Youtube or google for disassembly instructions on your iPhone or iPod before proceeding. We also recommend that you take your time and do not rush the installation process. We have seen many times before when customers rush a repair job and come back with to us to get other replacement parts they have broken during the process. The main aim here for doing a DIY install is to save money and if you're breaking additional parts, you're defeating the whole purpose in the first place.
Common repair jobs we see by far are broken touch screens/digitizers and broken LCD screens. The digitizer (or glass touch panel) is the glass part of the screen that detects inputs from your fingers and used for navgation purposes. The digitizer sits on top of your LCD screen. The LCD screen is the part that displays the images of your phone and has a backlight. A good way to determine what is broken is to look at your screen. Is the LCD bleeding or has large black blobs? If the answer is yes, then your LCD screen needs replacing. If it is working fine and is just the glass panel that is broken, then you will only need to replace the digitizer. On a side note, some devices such as the iPod Touch 4th generation and iPhone 4, both the LCD and digitizer are glued together by a strong adhesive and cannot be separated. This means you will need to replace both at the same time regardless of what is broken.
If it all too difficult for a self install, here at Circuit Central, we do offer iPhone and iPod repair service to ensure the job is done right.
