Current dreamers should replace just the glass on an iPhone screen this article work for the iPhone 5 see the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5 S. what I’ve done to this point is taken off the back metal plate the home button in the earpiece from the phone if you want to watch.
How to do this on your phone go ahead and click the link that goes to yours and assure you the teardown video for that this article is just how to replace the glass on your iPhone taken off these little plastic pieces from. The top of the phones was going to reuse those on the glass once we get it back into place that the last bit was small metal grill be careful with these ribbon cables during the process because.
F you’ve been tweaking him in any way or else he’s going to stop working permanently grab he young and start heating your phone very gently you want to get it to 70Â°C but don’t go over 95Â°C who will begin burning the LCD underneath. If you’re not using one of those handy dandy laser heat temperature sensors which are willing conveyors Christian below, you want to get it too hot to touch.
Pull off the plastic frame from around the edge of the glass because we will reuse the plastic casing with your new drink that you purchase from the link in the description. Now, I’m going to grab a playing card in kind of slide it between the plastic frame in the glass to help out if your screen is shattered. This will come off a little bit easier. Still, since my filters mostly in one piece, it says slightly harder clean off any shards of glass that are down in this plastic since.
We’re going to reuse it, and now we need to separate the LCD from the class itself we’re going to grab that he gun and heated up again to that same temperature ranges before just getting it barely too hot to touch. We don’t want to do any damage to the LCD underneath you’ll see you’ll become yellow or brown if you feed it up too much.
Now I’m going to grab my playing card, once to the temperature inside, between the LCD and the glass. On the flip it over and show you, what it looks like, you can see that the glue is liquid between the two layers in ashes sliding away from that the card itself. If you enjoy the video so far, if you feel like you’ve learned something goes ahead and click that subscribe button, it does mean a lot to me. It does help me keep on making videos like this one. Also, check out my Instagram. I promise I do more exciting things than fix phones all day links to social media, and repair parts in the description below.
Now you can see as I slide the card in that the glue is not responding as quickly as it was before is because the glass is cooling down it does cool down fairly quickly because it’s so thin so I’m going to go ahead and stop sliding my card around here in a second. I’m going to reheat the glass again so that the group will become more liquid. This is pretty freaking exciting and heated. The same temperature ranges before 7Â°C 95Â°C. And you can watch the card separate the glass from the LCD.
I’m not going to speed this up at all. You can see exactly how the group reacts with the card some people use wire some people use razor blades if this is the funniest thing you’ve watched all day I don’t know what is. You can see that these glass shards about to pop off if your screen is more crack than this. You’ll be pulling glass shards off more often. Since my filters not too bad, this is all the excitement that you get. Pull that guy off, and we are almost done. Sell buckle up ladies and gentlemen we’re almost there. The anticipation is killing me. And we are finished.
You can go ahead and pull that glass often just thrown away. We’re not going to need any more replacement glass pieces that will be found in the article description. Below so here’s the LCD when you look at what you do think eggshell because any more pressure than what would crack an eggshell will break of this. You’ll be left with just a broken piece of plastic.
We’re going to pull off all the glue that we can from it just rolling it off with your finger member being super gentle the whole time once you’ve got all the big pieces a paste off you can use a mild solvent like alcohol. And just kind of somewhat around on top of the gluteal just kind of.
Make it dissolve. I will link in the description of the alcohol th
at I use. You can buy that if you need to, I am taking a plastic pry tool you can also use you know that broken debit card or a plastic card and scrape off some of the significant glue pieces from the edge of the screen and then heading back to the alcohol. Can help clear up the last little bits of it some people recommend using Google on I haven’t tried that before, but it’s an option here is the spotless LCD screen.
Not have gotten all the glue off. I’m going to do one quick last little rub down with the alcohol a new piece of cloth to make sure that there’s no dust or anything before I put this UV activated loca glue on top of the screen. So with this crew is an optically clear UV activated clue, I link that down the video description below. You just going to lay it out in a pattern similar to this, so you don’t trap air bubbles underneath the glass when you lay it down.
If you get any air bubbles in the glue, you can tap it with your metal tweezers, and those will pop the little bubbles that are inside anyway, taking the glass lining up, your peace with the ribbon cables to make sure. That is oriented in the right direction, and then I’m just going gently placed the glass down on top of.
The LCD and the glue remember that the slower you do this, the better because if you do it fast, it will travel air bubbles inside. They’re going to be almost impossible to remove because they are between the glass and the LCD. Hence, if you get bubbles, you can just like to massage them out towards the edge of the glass, but you know the slower you do it, the fewer bubbles you have, none preferably anyway if you grab popcorn for a free deposit article.
It is pretty darn, exciting. Still just pressing the glue out to the edge of the screen, you can see that the glass will slide around a little bit. This is fine.
It’s preferable because we are not using a mold at the moment. I figured most of the world wouldn’t have shells to work with, so we are doing the video without them. I’m sure you prefer that as well, okay now that. The glue has been pushed out to the edges of the LCD.
I’m going to lift it at the glucan acts like this section which is nice and makes our job a little bit easier the goal here is to line the LCD up with the glass, so you want an even distance on the left and right side. Of the LCD and then along the top here, you’re going to see a white line. You want that line to be entirely hidden by the top glass. Once you’ve kind of gently put in place, making sure that there’s no air bubbles or anything between the glass and the LCD and making a couple of last-minute adjustments here before I grab my UV light, the UV light is what cures the glue or makes it dry. The group will always stay liquid and tell the UV light hits it.
I’ve heard of some guys going outside and using the sun, but I feel like that would take too long, and I honestly don’t think it works out well, so just grab a UV light. And stick it over the top of the screen I did mine for about 20 seconds, and then I flipped it up to make sure I do need to make any last-minute adjustments to it while the glue was still quite tacky because we will try entirely in about a minute or two once the UV light is on.
Now that it’s all dried a minute, flip it over and clean off the back any excess glue. It was making sure that it’s not. It was going to stick around. It. Now there’s some, and he said that you want to use to get the frame on the glass this three and stuff that you see me putting on right now is garbage do not use it I would recommend using the sticky tape that is short previously that comes in the giant roll stuff is a lot more viscous and does a lot better job.
But hindsight is 2020 now that I’ve placed a glass inside the frame I could start putting the whole phone back together again if you’re bored of this parking kind of skipped towards the end, especially if you know what you’re doing getting that metal plate back into place. Put in the home button down in metal brackets screwed in. Making sure that the frames in the right spot and now I’m putting in all of those little bits and pieces that I took off at the beginning of the video like the earpiece the grill the rubber bit short other small plastic thing imaging.
And setting down the camera and proximity sensors into place in that plastic brackets your piece goes in your piece bracket goes in—screw on the top score on the bottom. And there you go. Everything seems to be working now; the screen’s back into place. If you have any questions be sure to leave in the comments down below don’t forget to like if this article.
