Mission Repair = Your Samsung Smartphone Service Center!

Hello M:R Nation -

Mission Repair has long been known as an Apple focused repair center. We repair everything from the iPod Nano to the iPad Mini and would not have it any other way. However, we have seen a great need out there for folks that don’t utilize an Apple product and that is why we decided to expand our reach.

Over the course of the last year or so, we have worked hard to offer some of the most popular to the somewhat aging models that Samsung offers. What we have found, is a brand of devices that is just a joy to service! Check out our whole Samsung Repair line below:

Now, I know this list might be a little overwhelming to look at… Information overload if you will, but this was the only way to fit all of the Samsung Smartphone services we offer on one page! Each picture is clickable, so feel free to browse around for a few moments. Once you are done, please note that this list is ever expandable and YOU have the ability to add to it!

If there is a Samsung Smartphone that we are not offering service on, give us a ring at 866-638-8402 or email us at solutions@missionrepair.com and we will work hard to source the needed parts to offer the services that you need!

Cheers, Troy

 

Weather Update…The Complaining Edition!

Hello M:R Nation -

If you were to look at the calendar with me, you would have to agree  that we are smack dab in the middle of spring. However, when you take a look at the below image, you are surly to think otherwise…

If you have been an audience to this blog over the last few months, you know how crazy of a weather ride Kansas City has taken and in true Kansas/Missouri fashion, its not over yet! What we hope is the last mention of snow for the next 20 years, is scheduled to arrive this afternoon and last through the night (no worries, we are still open).

Yuck!

Yuck!

From what I am hearing, we will have little to no accumulation, but this is just no comfort us (the people expecting 65 degrees and sunny). As you can see, I have chosen speak for everyone here at Mission Repair and furthermore, everyone in Kansas and Missouri to say we are over this mess!

While I am usually the voice of reason, I have shifted my tone to the voice of complaint. I know its not going to change Mother Natures course, but I sure do feel better about it now. Yes, I know I should use this blog to talk about GS3 and iPad Mini repairs, but I just had to get this one out. Thanks for hanging in there with me ;-)

Cheers, Troy

Samsung Galaxy S III Repair!

Hello M:R Nation -

The coolest phone on the market today goes by many different names. Some call it the “GS3″ while others just simply say “S3″. I personally like to say the whole name while speaking of it, which is Samsung Galaxy S III. It comes in different colors and is provided to the public by different carriers. But the one thing about the Samsung Galaxy S III that doesn’t vary is the way the screen cracks when hitting the floor. Yes, this is a sad notion, but a true one.

Samsung Galaxy SIII Screens in stock!

Hello folks, it’s been a while – but we have a huge inventory of Samsung Galaxy SIII Screens in stock with more units on the way tomorrow. We’ve made a huge investment in new screen assemblies – these are OEM assemblies that have been properly sealed in a clean room manufacturing process. I say “assembly” because our parts come with a new glass panel, digitizer, LCD, sub frame, bezel, home button and all the proper cabling.

There are multiple vendors selling glass panels ALONE on eBay and Amazon…and I want to warn you that these $20 parts may seem enticing but I’m here to tell you that without the proper equipment (including an autoclave that will heat, vacuum and seal the new glass panel onto the digitizer with the proper special optical adhesive) it is IMPOSSIBLE to get an OEM factory repair with these cheap, imitation $20 parts.

We can appreciate DIY technicians.  Just be sure you know what you're getting into before you buy this part from China!

If you don’t care about what your phone looks like after it’s repaired, then maybe this is the way you prefer to “repair” your SG3. Additionally, it can take 2 hours to perform this method of a repair. Yikes. Time is money! An ugly phone or mis-repaired phone is worth even less.

However most of Mission Repair’s customers DO care about how their phone looks. And works. And lasts.

That’s why we only use OEM assemblies that have been properly sealed and assembled from the factory. We can then simply install a new assembly while you wait and ensure a high quality repair that’s performed by the professionals in the industry. Mission Repair, the Intelligent Choice.

Do you have any questions about this repair? Email me directly. I’ll be happy to answer them in the order in which received.

Hey all, we’re still in a rainy mess here at Mission Repair but I think we might be pulling out of it. April showers bring May flowers!

Take care, Ryan

How To: Tell If Your LCD Screen Is Cracked?

Hello M:R Nation  -

We have many inquiries per day on how to identify a cracked LCD screen. It might be harder than you think to identify, so let me shed some light. Now, different devices have different traits when it comes to how the screen cracks and what it looks like after said crack occurs.

Take for example the Samsung Galaxy S III. The GS3 will usually have a hairline fracture and in most cases, one crack completely wipes out the backlight and picture. The iPad Mini on the other hand will usually takes on a more classic broken LCD look with an ink blotch factor to it.

To show you some of the different traits, I have taken some quick images of some our more popular repairs with cracked LCD screens. You will very quickly be able to see the difference.

As you see on the iPad Mini, there is more of an ink blotch effect as we discussed above. Most iPads will have this same trait when the LCD screen is broken. They will usually continue to produce the back light as well. On the Amazon Kindle 3, you will notice a very different look. This particular Kindle has an “E-Ink” screen and when it’s cracked, it will stop working all together and whatever screen you were on last before it was cracked, it will remain on until it is replaced.

The iPod Touch 4 (and all iPhones for that matter) will usually show a flickering bright white screen when cracked. Notice in the picture how it also shows vertical and horizontal lines? Also, in a lot of instances, the digitizer will still function even thought the LCD is broken. This doesn’t mean we can only replace the LCD however. In the case of the iPod Touch 4 and most models of the iPhone, we have to replace the whole assembly.

Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy S III is unique with how it cracks. As you can see in the above image, it looks like the glass is cracked. This is not the case… the glass is just fine, but the extremely thin LCD underneath broken. When the LCD is damaged, the backlight will almost always go out and you will no longer be able to view the images on the screen. This, like the iPod touch and iPhones, has to be replaced as a whole unit. There is just no way around it.

If you have something other than what I have shown above, more than likely it will have some of the same traits. These 4 devices show you a wide range of the LCD screens that are used in devices today and if you match your screen up with one of these 4, I think you will have a very concrete answer on if your LCD is broken or not. If you are still unsure about it, send me a picture to troy@missionrepair.com and I will gladly help you out!
