Apple iPhone Water Damage Repair in York

We have perfected the dark art of iPhone water damage York. We have been practising with iPhone Motherboards left in people’s draws and cupboards drying out in rice, all of which when given to us were blank screen – no turning on. No life. We cleaned dried them out over a couple of hours and voila! back to life as you can see in the video below. Try excitement for a customer occurs when they boot with the beautiful Apple logo ! iPhone water damage York. Perfected !

 

What we use:


1: Ultra sonic bath

It doesn’t have to be a great one but does need to be a step up from the cheap jewelry cleaning ones.

Dont get a big one, bigger isnt better – just get the right size for the boards your likely to repair, too large will just waste the IPA.

If your bath comes with a wire rack remove this before use, will just elevate the board and require more IPA

2: IPA (isopropanol)

We use 99%+ pure alcohol


 

Method 

Before trying the iPhone water damage York repair you will need to carefully check over the board for visible signs of damage such as burns on broad ICs and resistors – dont worry about mineral corrosion (why / green powder looking muck) – if you see burns or the corrosion is so bad that its caused some components to detach its not worth using the Ultrasonic bath unless your planning to do a board level repair after.


Technique:

Strip the phone down / remove logic board, if possible remove plates on the board that cover the ICs, this will really help the bath get to all components and also assist with drying.

Drop it into the bath and cover with IPA, you will need to make sure the entire board is covered, for best results i would fill about 1/1.5 inches (too shallow and the bath wont work too well)

Depending on the extent of the damage we often clean it twice.

Once the board has been cleaned and you’ll see the water has gone from a lovely clear colour to grey with a silt like sediment in the bottom it’s time to take it out and dry it using either a dehumidifier or air heater.

Once dry its time to test and see if the repair is successful.

Here’s a video we took of one that was being cleaned and hadbeen dried. It’s exciting when you boot them up and they work.

The Difference Between Original Apple Screens and Copy Screens Available As An After-market Product


There are many ways to differentiate between original Apple screens and copy screens available as an aftermarket product. Most identification methods are old-fashioned, and most manufacturers of the fake iPhone screens are working around the clock to come up with new methods to mask down the visual inspection methods. Nonetheless, you can still identify a fake iPhone screen with a few simple techniques that cover about 98 percent of the product. Though I use the word fake, they are high quality copies attempting to replicate the original high quality of Apple’s engineering  


The following are some of the easiest to notice differences between original Apple screens and copy screens:

The Apple Logo
This is the easiest way to differentiate between original iPhone screens from copy screens. Original Apple LCD screens have an Apple logo present on the screen flex and on the digitizer’s flex cables. Most copy screen manufacturers find it hard to put the Apple logo on the screen flex as well as the digitizer flex cables. You should, therefore, be keen when going for screen repair york to identify the logo. If it is present, then the screen is original.


Apple Logo on FlexCable Flexibility
To identify original Apple screens from copy screens available on the market, you need to check the flexibility of the flex cables. The manufacturers of original Apple screens produce softer and more flexible flex cables. This is aimed at ensuring that the cables do not break during installation. The cost of production of the softer flex cables is much higher as compared to the cost of production of standard flex cables.


Hydrophobic Gorilla Glass
Original iPhone screens’ glass lens is made of high-quality gorilla glass which is hydrophobic and cannot be used on fake screens. The screen is water resistant, and there is no way water or any liquid residue can stick to the surface. Additionally, this feature makes the screen anti-fingerprint and anti-dust.


Flex Cable IC Chip
On original iPhone screens, there is a chip on the flex cable that controls power and displays information from the main board to the LCD screen. The IC chip has an upside-down triangle, and this makes it original. If the upside-down triangle is missing on the IC chip, then know that the screen is a copy screen.

 


The Frame
All original iPhone screens have a smoother, shinier and even frame. The best way to differentiate between an original and a copy screen is to touch and feel the parts. Poor quality screens are hurriedly manufactured, and you will find that the frame is not even and that the brackets are not smooth.


QR Code
QR codes are usually printed on the back of original Apple screens and cannot be wiped off easily. But on copy screens, you can easily wipe the code off using a little bit of alcohol.


We have recently begun using copy screen from a trusted supplier who deals directly with the manufacturers. These copies are extremely good and so far have a really low fail rate. Like 1 in 50 screens which is extremely low as a percentage. As a result we have been using them for customers that want a lower cost solution. Maybe if the phone is to be returned too an insurance company, re-sold, used as a spare. We offer a 6 month warranty on them as we are confident in their quality. In face the proof in the quality is that we have even started using them

Fluff in the Charging Port causing problems in York

 


We get contacted most days by people having charging issues with their iPhones. Either the port feels stiff and they have to force the charging lead in to make it work, wrapping the lead around the phone and holding it in place with a hairband, or just not knowing what to do and the phone going flat.

Most of these problems are, well apart from the one with tin-foil in and the one with the stone in and the occasional one that has actually failed – just build up of debris and dirt, generally just fluff in the port.

If you read this article you should check your port anyway maybe and save yourself some bother long-term. Most people’s port have the fluff in (see picture)

Morning A.Customer 

Happy to do it  for you. We operate a mobile service where we come to you and fit at your home/workplace. It would typically take 20 minutes and would cost £39.99.

Before you decide to have the port replaced can I suggest you try poking around in the opening with a fine pair of tweezer or a stiff needle and see what comes out. You can’t do any damage but 1 in 3 charging port request I get are solved by taking fluff and debris out.  


 

This is the response we get back…

 

Good morning,

 
 
That is a great tip! I had already tried to clean out the port, but gently using a toothbrush! I have just had a go using a needle and bingo – a ball of compressed dust popped out! It now seems to be ok. 
I really appreciate your help, and rest assured that I will highly recommend your service!
 
Kind regards, 
A.Customer
 

 
Even better we get the 5* review at the top because we helped someone help themselves. We love doing that. This is genuinely so common though. We see this all the time. It’s currently at 3 in 4 callouts despite giving the advice over the phone we still turn up and pull fluff from the port at customers houses in York, Pocklington and all over North Yorkshire.
 
The best tools to have at hand are these cheap ant-static tweezers on Amazon: Tweezers
