tha guy: Thanks for this video, I have a GS4 and the power button is causing the phone to reboot over and over again. So since I don't have all this equipment, I will just remove the power button. I at least know what it takes, thanks.
maremas: I have the same problem with my t989d, tomorrow phone goes into service!
Preston Ren: Fully appreciate your effort, but realizing how oils and creams from user hands are easily transfer and leach into the power switch, perhaps in another video do you recommend resolution attempt by simply using fine spray contact leaner and compressed air for keyboards and such? I have and have used soldering pencils and guns, but I know of no one who has one of the hot air devices you demonstrate. Can sw be removed using a soldering pencil?
Jose Esquivias: thank you so much for the reply.your video is very helpful.
Jose Esquivias: hi I'm learning how to solder so the Flux is used to remove old solder and solder paist is to resolder?what causes the solder not to stick? thank you very much for the video.
Kent M: @steverrada Great info here. Can you update this link in the description below your video as it is no longer working: "Picture showing which pins form the contact closure: vsoh.com/a0:contactpins.png/
Matt: Hey man great video, but I have a question. Is it possible to remove this power switch and replace it with a different momentary switch by running wire from the new switch to these solder pointsa few inches away? I need to mount a phone in a display case type thing and the power switch needs to be located on the casing of the mount, would this be a problem? How would I do it?
guyanesechick75: Hi Steve did you shut down your store?
nuttymegz21: Hi Steve. I used this tutorial to repair my galaxy s2 and the instructions were flawless. I found everything needed for the repair on Ebay. It took me a couple tries to get it right, but it sure beats spending $$$$ on a new phone! Thank you for such a superb video!
Jave Rosales: Hello Steve, what celsius is the setting when reflowing the button to place?
PiANo: Hey, I have the same phone and it keeps restarting but I'm 100% sure that it's not a power button problem.. It starts itself alone, but the restarting cycle started only when I turned my phone off 1 day... I tried everything, factory reset, wiping cache.. It doesn't want to load to the main lock screen. It keeps restarting.. When I remove the battery, and put it back in, the phone doesn't start by itself. I cannot load safety mode, because the 4 buttons at the bottom don't light up when the phone is off... If you could help me, that would be great! :)
BHayes82: I ordered the button from you, used this video and pulled it off, thank you very much.
Kyle Channel: Loved the bg music
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.
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 service.
