Tips For DIY Mobile Phone Repairs





If you spend a few hours searching online, you can learn a lot about DIY mobile phone repair. You can find a lot of articles and YouTube videos that can help you do different types of repair projects step by step. It’s true that the task is not easy, especially when you are going to work on your own handset that is about to die. However, if you do it the right way, you can save plenty of money on repair.

If you are too nervous to do the repair yourself, we can help. In this article, we have put together a few important tips and tricks that can help you perform the repair successfully. Let’s read the tips.

Take your time

No matter how impatient you may be, don’t rush. What you need to do is take your time, which will ensure the job is done right the first time. Since popular brand handsets are so expensive, making the repairs in rush is not a good idea as a lot of money and your precious data is at stake. Your chances of success will be higher if you make the fewest mistakes possible.

Get organized

If you are not organized, you won’t be able to fix your phone. Make sure all of your tools are organized. Each type of tools should be in its own container. This will prevent misplacement. It’s a good idea to keep different types of tools in separate containers.

Organization is important when it comes to dissembling and assembling of your device. For instance, you can put the first screw you removed all the way to the right. In the same way, the second screw will be put next to the first. This will make it easier for you to assemble your device once the problem is fixed.

Take care of the wires

You should be gentle. If you are not careful, you may end up breaking a cable or wire, which will make the repair work even more difficult. In worst scenario, you may even end damaging a wire that will make it impossible for you to move on.

Don’t force yourself

If you find it too difficult, don’t force yourself. If you can’t fit a component, don’t force it. If you are struggling to fit a fresh part into a socket, know that there is something in the way. Forcing it is not a good idea as it may damage the device for good.

Be careful with the screws

You should be gentle when it comes to tightening the screws. Although it’s important to tighten each screw, make sure you don’t use too much force or the screw or screw hole may get damaged.

As a general rule, once a screw feels tight, stop. This will ensure that everything is all right.

Long story short, you can do common mobile repair jobs yourself if you know how to go about it. But if you have no idea about the basics of the mobile phone repair, we suggest that you don’t follow the DIY route as it may ruin your phone costing you a good deal of money. In this case, you should hire the services of a professional.

We discuss 5 home automation ideas with IoT-based mobile applications.

1. Security

Mobile applications that connect with the home security system such as cameras and intercoms enable the home owner to continuously monitor the visitors from their mobile device screens. Further, all recordings can be directly stored on cloud and viewed remotely. So, if a visitor comes and rings the bell in everyone's absence, one can see who it is, and speak to them live and view their activities from their mobile device using the application. An in-built alarm system can help raise alarm and send a signal to the requisite authorities in case of medical emergency, fire or theft to ensure quick response even when the owner is away from home. A complete lockdown of the home with a single press of a tab or voice command can be done with a mobile application using beacon technology.

2. Lighting and ventilation

Lighting systems with sensors are fairly common, though not yet adopted on a large scale. New systems are available in the market that can be synced with mobile applications to ensure total control of lighting, room temperature and ventilation with one's mobile device. So, just as the home owner leaves office they can set the temperatures and the home lighting moods on their device so that they enter to a relaxing environment that has been pre-set to alleviate their mood and give them a homely feel. Further, the settings can be made for the entire house or specific rooms within the house.

3. Kitchen appliances

The refrigerator that tells you what its contents are and the expiry date of each food item kept in it is newly entering the market. What it can further do is, send you push notifications on your mobile device via a simple mobile application with actionable ideas for placing orders for fresh stock with your vendor. All electronic devices within the kitchen, including the electric stove and oven can be programmed to respond to commands from the mobile device so that you don't have to get up in the middle of your engrossing sitcom to turn the timer off.

4. Media

Smart televisions and smartphones are already in the market, they can be used to change channels, manage the volume and other adjustments. With a targeted mobile application, the screen can be cast on the wall or any screen, which means, the television may simply become obsolete in a few years. The availability of high speed internet and mobile applications and websites that stream movies and television shows, TV series and even the in-house applications of production houses makes broadcast networks obsolete. In anticipation of the maturing technology where minimalism is a central aspect, we can soon witness sensors and beacons replacing bulky devices within the home space.

5. Water and waste management

A walk through shopping mall or airport restrooms will show you sensor enabled taps and flushes that don't require physical contact to operate taps. Similar technology is coming into homes and at affordable rates. Water heating/ cooling, setting the showers, Jacuzzi or cleaning the home swimming pool can be automated with mobile application-based command. Further, the waste segregation, recycling and disposal can also be managed with planners of a mobile application.

There are several home automation ideas that can be executed using mobile applications with a comprehensive interface and smart use of the new hands free technologies. Many are already in the testing phase while many more are still in design and development phase with mobile app development companies.
