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.

Amazon Kindle 3

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.

iPod Touch 4

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!

Did You See Us?

Hello Again M:R Nation,

Over the weekend, we had 41 action news of Kansas City come by and interview Ryan about the newly instated Digital Millennium Copyright Act. This act makes it illegal to unlock your phone on your own behalf. You now must contact  your carrier to unlock your device for use on another carriers network.

Ready For My Close Up!

Ready For My Close Up!

Lights, Camera, Action!

Lights, Camera, Action!

This law is set for phones that are sold from January 26th 2013 and on. So if you have a smartphone purchased before this date, unlock away! How will they monitor this? We have no clue. What will the penalty be? We have no clue. But to stay on the safe side, I would recommend going directly to your carrier for this service for the time being.

There will be many business and services effected by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and we certainly feel for them. Will this Act last for a long period of time? Only time will tell, but until then, stay safe and know what the laws are when dealing with iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC EVO or any other Smartphone software!

Cheers, Troy

Oh, The Weather Outside Is…Not So Frightful?

Hello M:R Nation -

We are having some interesting weather in Kansas City during the month of January. We finally had our first snow of the winter, the have experienced well below zero temperatures (which is not at all uncommon) and today, it is sunny with the high of 69-72 degrees.

Now, I have lived in this area for most of my life and this has got me scratching my head. Kansas and Missouri are known for their extreme temperatures in either direction, but this is just crazy. I guess we will enjoy it while we can… I hear there is also snow in the forecast for this week!

So watch out this week for specials, discounts and new services pertaining to everything Apple, Samsung, Amazon , HTC and much more.

Samsung Galaxy S III Repairs Made Easy!

Hello M:R Nation -

We at Mission Repair have become infatuated with the Samsung Galaxy S III. There were even talks of Ryan switching from his iPhone 5 to the GS3. I am not sure where he is in that process, but I will get you an update.

Why this infatuation you ask? Well, let me counter that question with a question of my own. Have you seen the Galaxy S III? Have you used the Galaxy S III? If you can answer yes to either or both of those questions, than you can understand the infatuation!

Mountains Of GS3 Screens!

By the mountain of broken screens in the above picture, it seems there are thousands of folks that agree with me. Yes, I understand they are broken. How could anyone want to keep a phone that breaks like that? Well, let me give you a hint…every phone in todays market can and will break like this. “The true test of a smartphones greatness is if someone is willing to repair it” – Troy Harris 2013.

What a better time to replace a phone that you don’t like, than when the screen is cracked. Of course, saving money is always a reason, but if you really hate the phone, you are going to use that as an excuse to move on. That is how I deduced my quote above. Yeah, I just quoted myself…

So in true Mission Repair fashion, we have made it easy for you to start, endure and finish the process of getting your Samsung Galaxy S III repaired. I have laid out below, all of the difference carriers and colors of the Samsung Galaxy S III that we currently service. We have 6 different options to suite your needs and are soon to be adding more.
