BigApple john: I watched several videos for Galaxy S2 power button repair and selected
eBay replacing power switch service from Steve. The process was easy, clear
and the service was professional. It fixed the problem, now I have a
functional phone, thanks Steve. For those who may have similar power switch
problems with Galaxy S2 phones it is highly recommended to use Steve's
Dagoberto Cabrera: I like the instructions. Thanks!
Growly: Too bad your store is closing, Steve. I am currently experiencing this
problem with my T-989 and wish you could change my switch.
Son Goku: I also have another question. My brothers phone has a problem with his
charging port. I saw your listing and you mentioned it. Could you please
describe the issue? And what caused it?
NikyRipy: Do you sell the switchS?
Son Goku: thanks man I just purchased the service. Now I just gotta send it in
spinn360: Hi Steve, First thanks for the video! Second, I just received the switch
from you I ordered on eBay but when I compare it to the existing switch,
the one you sent me is larger and the points don't match up to the board
correctly like in this video. I am going to send you an ebay message, but
it seems to be possibly the wrong switch. It says 4.75 mm on the package.
tko: athing it that now work and some time go of ogaing by self and whend i put

Arpan Upadhyaya: +steverrada my phone has got somewhat different problem. after i switch on
my phone, it restarts again and again. first it shows samsung logo, then
galaxy s2 logo. and again it restarts... how can i solve this problem?
Mayling Chen: I got a question is my motherboard broken or is there something else wrong
on my Samsung galaxy s2 cause it was having all those symptoms that you
said. I took it apart kinda used some tools to see if I could just tighten
the power button but now the power button is completely dead do you know
what I can do cause I took it to the nearest repair place they put on a new
button but it still doesn't work but free of charge to me
Saad Salman Zia: Where are you located in IL?
I opened mine up but I don't have soldering tools to put in a new switch.
bathingape915: Great video. Highly respectable that you would share a full tutorial video
for the average diy-er that might not be able to afford to take it to a
professional. I was looking for ways to just reassign the button to one of
the volume buttons but came across this. I was wondering if a general heat
gun would work in place of the hot air reflow.
Jimmie King: Good job, but WHY run the Music in background-? Tech Videos are just that
and not Music Videos, and the Music takes from the Videos. Thanks and God
andrew lillard: I just did the squeze fix on mine, it seams to be working but the button is
VERY touchy. I may be sending my phone your way soon
David Miranda: Seen you refurbish galaxys want to buy mine? It has the power button
Anil Philip: Steve, I have a T989 S2 with these symptoms. Can I drop off the phone? I
live in Palatine IL.
Eder Diaz: Hi, I am going to buy a 852d hot station, could you tell me what
temperature level do I need to setup and what air level, please, I bought
this smartphone with this problem, and I am looking to learn, well, thanks
in advance. Eder.
Nabil Merhby: +steverrada I just had this problem and I found your video the best in
terms of explication and simplicity.
I am now using my volume buttons to turn on/off my device
this repair u are doing is amazing but I need an easier one with less
equipment u know ... something someone at home can do
Daniel Bishop: I have a faulty power button on a Galaxy S4 and want to make sure I the
replacement correctly have you replaced any of those?
Nophel Farret: Do you still do repairs on the galaxy s2 via ebay?
Aldrick Castro: i dont have the air flow machine or solder paste, just regular soldering
iron and solder, can this still be done?
Derek Schoen: What would happen if you applied too much heat and any 2 of the 5 solder
joints/pads mixed? That would cause a problem, right?
tony BORICUA: Hello! What size of switch for galaxy s2 tmobile ?
Dane Kerr: what is the purpose of the 3 caps/chips beside the power button, i think i
Steve Anh Tuan Pham: If we send it to steve to fix, do we need to buy the power button and
equipment too? Or do we just send in our phone.
connor1186: What temp do you run your hot air station at?
ziad jarawan: all your symptoms happened with my phone before i did this:
I hit the side of my t-989 in the table "gently". firmly pressed on the
on/off switch for several times! then tapped it a little then BAMM here
goes it worked.
tbobreak: hi steve, i give away the gold paths, so i try to look for continuity
points, so i find one, thas correspond to the pin next to two components
, i guess tha are 2 resistors, so left de other, can you help me?
Elias Martinez: Hey Steve thanks for your guide on replacing the power switch. I have a
question concerning the installing a new power switch. What would be the
cause of the power switch to not power up the phone if the three passive
components are still on the board? I replaced a switch the first time and
it did work however the switch went bad shortly after being to sensitive
and I am on my second installment of a new switch. I guess my question to
you is would the switch not work properly if the solder connection is not
made properly? I plug the phone in and the phone charges and display does
work I just can not power up the device. I am holding off till you get back
to me also if you have information that helps me I will make a $10.00
donation to your pay pal.
marcos lopez: Ok so I have a galaxy s2 from virgin mobile and I attempted to fix to lock
button by squeezing it with plyers and it broke off you think that it is
still fixable if I pay you to fix it? Thank you
And will it still be $34.99??
superfastk92: IamKambodian method did work for me if you just need a temporary fix. Most
of us there's no way we could successfully resolder on that switch
Victor Knighten: Steverrada thanks a lot for your guidance on how to change out the power
button....I work in an instrumentation shop and I never new what the air
solder gu could be used for(lol)......everything worked out awesome and it
saved me a ton of money. once again thank you.
Raul Ortega: I try to find u in ebay but i cant i need u to fix my cellphone becouse the
other guys cant fix it
xxhotelcrazyxx: Steve I need to have you install a new switch on my motherboard, but i need
to explain a few things first, do you have a contact number i can call you
at? its urgent and i dont want to lose all the photos and video of my baby
that are on the internal memory. Thanks!
German Enriquez: Where can I contact you to replace my?
DynaDom: I have these symptoms on my gs3. Samsung makes cheap phones
carlito pv: good.. i need power botton
Vibhu Chaudhary: I have the same problem with my S3
Hudson Barry: Thank you for doing a good job replacing my i727 power switch. Now it works
like it should. Keep up the good work.
Mike Stevens: Just ordered a HTC Evo 4g lte, to replace this piece of worthless piece of
junk. After my experience with the Galaxy s2, I will never buy another
Samsung product again.
Ojas Patel: Does anyone know how well of a job he does fixing it if you have sent in
your phone for repair?
Sean Allman: For some reason my solder paste will not turn silver and shiny when
applying the heat in place on the board. It's turning a dull grey and then
nothing happens. I shoot the air at the paste else where and it melts and
turns shiny, what's going on here?
novafreak69: I have found it much easier to mount the switch first by putting a small
amount of solder paste on the little pads on the outboard side of the board
and the mounting holes and heat that to mount the switch , THEN add a small
amount of solder paste to the backside of the switch and board on the three
spots. then heat that solder.
SnakeFist: hey steve, when reflowing on a really temperamental area like this, what is
a safe air-heat ratio?
GSMILEntertainment: My phone is just like that. =( Please fix my phone.
