Mobile Device Fixes

DIY Mobile Device Fixes


            The smaller and slimmer laptops and cell phones become, the more easily they can be damaged.  Before you spend too much on repair for your cracked screen or the key on your keyboard that doesn’t work anymore, it could be worth taking a crack at it yourself.  

Drop your phone in a puddle? – Quick, stick it in a jar of rice!  No, really!  You may be able to absorb the moisture before it does damage.  First, power the phone off.  If you can, remove the battery and towel it and the phone dry.  Fill a jar with regular dry, uncooked rice and leave it for up to 2 days to pull the moisture from the electronic parts.

Cracked screen? – If you’ve ever dropped a device and picked it up only to see the cobwebs of cracks, you know this can be a very pricey repair.  Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy a new phone.  Depending on the model of the device you have, it might be something you can do yourself. Visit www.ifixit.com/Device/Phone to see if there is a guide for your model and to see what replacement screen parts cost.

Does your laptop battery no longer hold a charge? – Rather than take your computer to a repair shop, see if you can find a replacement online.  Most laptop batteries can be replaced easily.  Remove the battery from your laptop and find the manufacturer and model number, then purchase a replacement from the original manufacturer to make sure the battery is compatible and high-quality.

Flickering laptop display?If your screen is giving you a headache because it’s flickering rapidly, you may have a loose wire.  If closing and opening the screen partway makes the flicker better or worse, that’s likely the problem.  First determine how to open your laptop (search Youtube.com for “open laptop + your computer model”).  Most laptops have a wire that runs through the hinge and plugs into the display.  The other end connects to the circuitry: try disconnecting and reconnecting to see if that fixes the issue.
