The key to successful cell phone hardware repair is mastering the skills required to disassemble and then assemble phones. While there are other aspects to this business such as software, inventory management, and marketing our site will deal primarily with the mechanical part of the job.
Cars, appliances, and even homes are composed of individual parts or sections that can be replaced. This modularity often makes it possible to salvage some or most of the device or structure in the event of damage. In our industry this damage can affect any part of the phone but in most cases tends to involve the screen or charging port. This is with the exception of water damage where the likelihood of damage to the logic board is particularly high. This can be bad news since this board is one part of the phone that can be difficult to come by and also contains some or all of the information stored in the devices memory.
The main focus of this site is to assist you in performing phone disassembly including the removal and replacement of damaged or defective parts. In some cases it will be easy enough to determine which part must be replaced while sometimes additional diagnostic procedures may be required. Fortunately diagnosing problems is a fairly straightforward procedure involving a process of elimination in order to isolate the faulty component. This can be challenging though as many users will not necessarily have a “donor” phone of the same model on hand to be used for this process.
Fixing phones can be a lucrative business opportunity for those who develop these skills and implement effective marketing strategies. Fortunately the cell phone repair market is still in it’s early stages relative to most similar business models. With the continued growth of wireless device sales the demand for phone repair doesn’t seem likely to go away anytime soon.
