The touchscreen of the smartphone, that is, its touch screen, may suddenly stop working. In this case, nothing more than to replace it, no longer invented. It is known that you can order a touchscreen at a relatively low price, but now its replacement can be quite expensive. Therefore, in this article we will look at how to remove the touchscreen yourself.
Removing the touchscreen
With the so-called block repair, the removal of the touchscreen is one of the most difficult steps. And for each model of the smartphone, how to disable the touchscreen and remove it will have individual features. We only give a general scheme without a detailed description of the disconnection of loops, cables, etc.
To dismantle, you need a special tool that looks like a screwdriver, but instead of a metal slot, it is equipped with a plastic one. Sometimes experts use some kind of scalpel.
- First you need to pry the touchscreen, separating it from the frame. It’s not at all easy to do; not only accuracy is necessary, but also accuracy.
- Then the touchscreen is heated by a hairdryer to make it easier to remove. During this process, it should not become hot.
- After that, experts use a thin, but dense plastic film in order to insert it into the lumen and begin to remove the layer of glue. The specialist lubricates the film with a special solvent so that it gets onto the glue and corrodes it.
- So you need to walk around the perimeter of the touchscreen and as a result, carefully remove it.
As you understand, this process is rather complicated, so you should contact specialists, but if you are quite confident in yourself, you can use a plastic card, for example, an expired credit card, instead of a film. Solvents can be bought in a specialized store selling computer equipment and accessories.
