A cracked phone screen can be a huge inconvenience, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to take your device to a repair shop. With the right materials and a few simple steps, you can easily repair the screen yourself.
Before you begin, assess the extent of the damage. If the crack is small and doesn’t interfere with the touchscreen’s functioning, you can likely move ahead with the repair. If the screen is shattered and the touchscreen is unresponsive, you should consider taking it to a repair shop.
You will need the following materials to complete the repair:
- Replacement Screen
- Cotton Swabs
- Rubbing Alcohol
Once you’ve gathered the necessary materials, it’s time to begin.
Start by wiping down the frame of your phone with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. This will help ensure that the adhesive will stick to the frame. Then, apply a thin layer of adhesive to the frame. Make sure that you use an adhesive specifically designed for the material your phone is made of.
Assemble and Secure Screen
Carefully place the new screen onto the frame and use the screwdriver to secure it in place. After the new screen is installed, it’s important to let the adhesive dry completely before you turn your phone back on.
Once the adhesive has dried, your cracked phone screen should be as good as new. With a few simple steps you can easily complete the repair yourself, and save yourself the time and expense of taking your phone to a repair shop.
