Ojas Patel: Does anyone know how well of a job he does fixing it if you have sent in
your phone for repair?
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?
GSMILEntertainment: My phone is just like that. =( Please fix my phone.
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
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.
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??
Vibhu Chaudhary: I have the same problem with my S3
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?
iluudrizzydrakee: Can I use any of these solder paste?
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.
kotsios photiades: is that power button switch the same with the galaxy s3? Is that possible
to replace it with soldering iron??
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
DynaDomCOD4: I have these symptoms on my gs3. Samsung makes cheap phones
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.
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 ?

carlito pv: good.. i need power botton
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.
Ivan Arias: +steverrada which solder paste can i use to perform this?
Cui Haosheng: Steve just fixed my phone! The repair was quick and perfect. Highly
recommended if you feel the process is too complicated.
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!
Hector Menendez: I want to fix mine but I'm from Ecuador and I hope you can help me answer
as to possible
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.
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
IamKambodian: check my page on another method that work for me
steverrada: Take a look at the .png I link to in the description. You have to make sure
that the solder job on those two pins matches what you see on the volume
switches (as a reference). Those two pins are the most important to get
right and the hardest to solder. This method is tried and true. I have
repaired over 500 phones to this point.
Ken chan: I followed your tutorial but it doesn't power up after I replaced it. What
can be the problem?
Justin Brown: thanks for this... really looking forward to trying it
Angelo Angeles: this video is verry helpfull this is what happening to my phone hope i get
Nicole Eaton: hi! I just emailed you! email@example.com- just in case
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.
