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
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.
Vibhu Chaudhary: I have the same problem with my S3
wobririck: Hey Steve, I tried a needle nose trick on my d710, and couldnt get it to
work. After about 20 different squeezes the power switch just popped
off...oops. After watching this, Im afraid I may have damaged those tiny
little components you mentioned. What do you think? Would you still be able
to repair? If you want pics or something, let me know and I could pop it
open. Great video, and seems like a great service you are offering from the
comments on your ebay store!
Touge Evo: off-topic question: Is it possible to replace/detach this phone's sim tray
? or it has to be replaced as a whole.
Spadejoker: Do you think its possible to remove and the power switch with a
conventional heat gun on low setting- 400c? Ive seen other people do it on
the s3 but the s3 doesnt have the small tiny capacitor nearby as on the s2.
Even if i shield them and the rest of the components its possible it will
still be too hot and melt off. My solder tips are too wide and it would be
impossible not to touch the nearby components.
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
iluudrizzydrakee: Can I use any of these solder paste?
kotsios photiades: is that power button switch the same with the galaxy s3? Is that possible
to replace it with soldering iron??
Ojas Patel: Does anyone know how well of a job he does fixing it if you have sent in
your phone for repair?
DynaDomCOD4: I have these symptoms on my gs3. Samsung makes cheap phones
SnakeFist: hey steve, when reflowing on a really temperamental area like this, what is
a safe air-heat ratio?
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?
GSMILEntertainment: My phone is just like that. =( Please fix my phone.
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.
German Enriquez: Where can I contact you to replace my?
Emmanuel Contreras: I'm having problems removing the solder from the little holes for the
button I am using a 2mm solder wick, any suggestions?
Thanks and great video!
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.
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.
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??
Darby Alvarado: I don't have the necessary tools nor the patience of a saint like you do
:-). Do you provide repair services!? And if so how can I contact you other
than through youtube. Great job by the way and thanks
carlito pv: good.. i need power botton
Jeremy Baybayan: First off, I love your video ! I am no tech genius like you but your video
sure did inspire me to try to do it my self. I was wondering can I use
this item from ebay for the water soluble flux ? Is this the same as your
pen ? What do you recommend ?
1pc BGA SMD Soldering Paste Flux Grease RMA-223 10cc
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.
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!
Cui Haosheng: Steve just fixed my phone! The repair was quick and perfect. Highly
recommended if you feel the process is too complicated.
Hector Menendez: I want to fix mine but I'm from Ecuador and I hope you can help me answer
as to possible
Ivan Arias: +steverrada which solder paste can i use to perform this?
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
Nancy Beebe: I found it now. Not sure why it wasn't showing up earlier. Thanks!
hjcho17: I'm having the exact problem with my galaxy s2. i was wondering if you
could fix my phone? What would be the price be? Please message me or reply
back to this. Thanks, and the video was very helpful in identifying my
AllYouHearIsSwoosh: how much is it for you to perform this procedure?
keywar1991: could you please write down all the tools that you used , my english is not
that good to understand everything and i thinks this would be a good chance
to get some skill fixing thing thanks a lot for the video. you just got a
new customer :)
steverrada: If you are skilled and practiced in surface mount soldering then you should
be able to perform this repair with a conventional contact soldering iron.
If not, then I would think twice about attempting this repair yourself. I
don't think it is worth damaging the whole phone over one botched soldering
steverrada: The switch was replaced with a brand new one. That is the only true,
permanent solution to this issue.
GrandmasterFuu: Hey steve I was wondering what is the price you charge for the repair
Juan Bobby: Great video.
Jordan Dixon: Does this tutorial apply to most samsung phones?
Daniel Tran: do you do volume rocker replacements?
steverrada: I suppose if you are good at soldering then you could complete this repair
with a conventional soldering iron only. I have never tried to be honest.
steverrada: Currently it stands at $38.48. Check out the video description for more
steverrada: Sounds like your LCD is cracked, or maybe if you are lucky, the ribbon
cable has just popped off. The LCD is very fragile. Even if the glass does
not break, the LCD panel itself could. Look closely for cracks.
steverrada: I have repaired this issue on the I727 too. It requires a slightly larger
switch, 4.75mm wide. I offer those for sale too in my store. Check out the
Canadian shipping details in my Repair Service listing.
steverrada: Some people have had success using a standard soldering iron for the whole
process. Others have damaged their motherboards beyond repair. If you have
the skill and soldering experience then go for it, If not I would be happy
steverrada: Hi Kemar, I can fix your phone for $65 USD including return shipping.
Please let me know if you are interested. I accept payment via PayPal.
Henrruchenko: Very good video, Thank You very Much!!
Denise Yavas: I just purchased the service and part from your ebay store!!!!!! Thanks
Short CirQit: 80% it doesn't need to be replaced when its stuck in that reboot loop. You
just need to de-solder, clean the pads, and re-solder the same button back
on. Fixed tons like this and never get them back. I only replace them when
the button is really sensitive.
steverrada: PM me on YT or look for my eBay store. Read the video description for eBay
item # details.
steverrada: Thanks for watching. Search my eBay store to buy the switch and repair
service. Once the purchase is complete, I will message you my shipping
