Galaxy S6 Screen Repair, Battery Replacement, Charging Port Fix Complete! GS6

Galaxy S6 Screen Repair, Battery Replacement, Charging Port Fix Complete! GS6

Today we’re going to be taking apart and
fixing the Samsung Galaxy S6. You can go ahead and unplug my braided cable from the phone,
take out the SIM card with my SIM card removal tool. And then you can grab a heat gun or
your sister’s hair dryer, and you want to heat up the back of the glass so that it’s
too hot to touch. You want to heat to seep through to the glue underneath the glass.
It will take about 2 or 3 minutes. Just kind of gently heat up the whole phone all the
way around. I would recommend watching this entire video all the way through. I will drop
hints and tips the entire video. Also if you feel like you learn anything during the video,
or if you enjoy watching this, go ahead and hit that subscribe button, it does help me
out a lot. I’m taking my razor blade and slipping it between the metal frame and the
back glass of the phone. You can see right here I accidentally dug my razor into the
white color of the glass. Once I realized that the razor can scrape away the color I
never repeated that mistake again. I slid my razor with the edge not touching the back
glass or the inside mid-frame of the phone because there are components you can damage
on the inside as well, which you’ll see. If the going starts getting tougher, make
sure you warm up the glass again so that the adhesive will fall apart a little bit easier.
You can see I’m just taking my razor blade and sliding it around the edge of the phone.
That’s where the majority of the adhesive is on that back panel; just cutting it away
from that mid frame. Going to finish off the last little bit of the adhesive here with
my razor blade and that separates the back glass from the phone itself. These are pretty
cheap. I’m going to go ahead and link those in the video description as soon as they become
available. You can see the adhesive that is stuck to the back but the majority of them
will come with adhesive preinstalled. Here are the screws that you need to remove from
the mid frame of the phone in order to get at the screen. It’s just a small phillips
head screw driver. The tools will be listed down in the video description below. Go ahead
and check it out if you need any replacement tools. I’m going to heat up the screen of
the phone, mostly focusing around the edge because that’s where the adhesive is holding
it onto the frame. And I’m going to push from the back side of the frame, on the battery,
so that the screen will pop out from the phone. You can see the adhesive along the top here
as well as I try to separate it. It’s really important that you do not press around on
the wireless charging pad. You can see that here. I lifted that up before I started pressing
on it. What’s interesting with the wireless charging pad, you can see the connection points
on the main board that charge the battery wirelessly. I just disconnected the battery
along with the fingerprint scanner and home button here. And then here is the LCD ribbon
cable connector. They are like little Legos; you just want to unsnap them from the main
board. Here’s the front camera that popped off. Once again, replacement parts will be
linked in the video description below. Here is the earpiece, and that releases the motherboard
from the mid-frame. I’m going to release the 4G and Bluetooth wire cables. They are
just little snaps. And then the charging port unsnaps from the back of the motherboard.
Here is the motherboard itself. Nothing else is really replaceable on the motherboard except
for the rear facing camera here. It’s kind of glued onto the motherboard which is interesting.
They haven’t done that in the past. Here’s the camera. I’m going to go ahead and snap
that back into place. That’s the same little ribbon cable connector with the Lego piece.
It’s also interesting; it has a little circle pin on the front that helps guide it into
place. I thought that was interesting, I haven’t seen that before. Here’s the battery. The
battery’s a little bit interesting as well. You…when you’re taking out the battery
you want to use something thin so slide underneath the battery and cut away the glue. If you
use a round pry tool it will put too much pressure on the screen and it will crack between
the screen and the battery. So make sure you’re not prying the battery out, you’re slicing
the battery out with a thin card. You can use like a face card as well, like a poker
card. Coming in from that other side as well, making sure I’m only slicing and not prying.
You’re going to want to take that advice for the rest of the phone as well because
the screen is so ridiculously thin. I’ll show you that a little bit later on in the
video once we get that separated. Battery is almost off. Remember replacement batteries
can also be found in the video description below. There you go. There is one screw holding
on the charging port to the mid frame. Remove that Philips head screw. And you would think
that charging port would come off, but the capacitive buttons are wrapped around the
mid frame and underneath the glass. So we have to wait until we remove the glass and
LCD from that panel in order to separate the charging port. Taking out the earpiece; set
that off to the side. And then here is the vibrating motor. Eventually I want to take
one of these guys apart and see what’s on the inside. I’ll save that for a future
video if you guys are interested. Now I’m going to heat up the glass. This heat job
is going to be a little bit more important cuz we’re heating up the entire screen of
the phone. What I’m going to do now is slide the little card that I’ve been using between
the LCD and the plastic. Now there is a black shield on the back of the LCD that we’re
going to try to not separate from the LCD, especially if we’re going to reuse the screen
again. So I’m going to slide the thin card between the screen. Once again, if the going
gets tough warm up the phone again. I like to keep it so that it’s just barely too
hot to touch. And remember don’t flex the screen at all or you’ll be super surprised
at how easy it breaks. You can see that I’m taking my card and sliding it just between
the plastic and the black shield. You want to leave that black shield intact and attached
to the LCD. It’s not too big of a deal if you accidentally separate it a little bit.
It’s just easier if you keep it intact. Also I’m being very careful with the LCD
ribbon cable down there at the bottom of the screen, making sure not to kink that at all.
If you bend that or kink it too much it will stop working and your LCD will just be black
or gray when you try to reinstall it on your motherboard. Be gentle with that LCD cable,
pulling it off to the side. Heating the phone up one more time, making sure to get down
there by the capacitive menu buttons and back buttons. And then using kind of a slicing/sawing
motion to get rid of the adhesive attached to the LCD and that black frame. Now that
I’m down towards the bottom of the phone, you want to be super careful with those capacitive
buttons, especially if you’re going to reuse your charging port. I’m sliding my card
between the button and the glass, making sure not to cut the button as I press it down and
slide off the glass frame. Once the glass is off… and here is where you really want
to make sure not to hurt the LCD. You can see how thin it is. It’s kind of like doing
brain surgery on a Dorito chip. Here’s the charging port capacitive buttons. I’m going
to pull those off the back side. And that releases the charging port from the phone.
If you need any replacement parts I’m going to list those in the video description. So
go ahead and check that out if you need a replacement charging port or your menu button…like
this little guy right here; just kind of feed that back through the mid-frame. Remember
how it goes. It goes through that main hole right there. I’ll show you as I reinstall
it right now. I’m going to go ahead and put the phone back together again. Press that
home button into place. And get that charging port; it will guide on top of those little
screw holes right next to the charging port itself. Wrap the capacitive buttons around
the back. Kind of stick them into place. They have little circles on them with guiding pins
so you can make sure they’re in the right spot. There’s a little metal grill that’s
on your old screen that you want to transfer over to your new screen. And then your new
screen should have its own adhesive, but if it does not, just get some double sided tape
and put that tape where the adhesive used to be on your old screen. Slide the LCD ribbon
cable through the plastic frame. And then line up all 4 corners. And you want to get
that home button lined up perfectly. I messed up a little bit here so I’m going to unsnap
it, get that home button perfect, and then snap it back down again. The home button will
be your main guiding point with that bottom side of the screen. Get the one little Phillips
head screw back into the charging port right next to the headphone jack. Press everything
down into place. Earpiece is now sliding in. Getting that little tiny circuit board at
the top in the little groove. And that vibrating motor back into its little circle. Here’s
the battery again. Make sure there’s nothing underneath the battery when you put it down,
like that little 4G wire. Press it down into place and then snap the motherboard onto the
charging port connection that’s on the back of the motherboard right there. It’s like
a little Lego; you feel it connect. It’ll be pretty solid. Get that home button and
LCD with the earpiece all snapped in. And the front facing camera; snap that way back
into the motherboard. And then the last one I do is the battery just to make sure there’s
no power going through the board as I’m working on it. Getting the Bluetooth wire
pressed into place along with the 4G cable. I’m also going to press the wires down into
the little grooves that are right next to the board, just to make sure that when I put
the back frame on it’s not going to pinch the cable in any weird way and disconnect
it so I won’t have service any more. Here I’m lining up the charging port with the
back frame. Sliding that screen into place. And clipping it all around that frame as well.
It’s not going to fit perfectly just yet because we don’t have the screws holding
it down into that back frame, but we can test it now that the power button is lined up with
the little contact pads on the motherboard. Everything appears to be working so I’m
going to go ahead and screw all these screws back in. Once again your back panel should
come with its own adhesive, but if it does not, grab some double sided tape and then
lay that down. Peel up the back of the tape. And then you can set your back into place.
But normally they’ll come with their own adhesive and they’re pretty cheap. I will
link those in the video description as well. Pinch the phone shut and you should be good
to go. No one would be able to tell that the phone was even opened. Worked out pretty well.
I’m going to go ahead and test the phone really quick to make sure everything’s working.
Plug in my braided cable…looks like it’s charging. It’s got the fast charger connected
and we should be good to go. I am going to do a durability test with this phone. I will
link that here. So if you’re curious to see how durable this phone is, go ahead and
click that link. I will have that up as soon as it’s done. Once again it does help me
out a lot if you subscribe to my videos. Don’t forget to “like” if this helped you. Hope
to see you around. Thanks for watching.

  3. Finally somebody with genuie FIRST disasembly video. Others just acting like they "cutting" the adehesive on a pre-disassembled phone. Thumbs up

  4. Hello. Super video. Can you please make a simple video on how to change/replace the charger port? Mine is broken as my mic dosent work either but is the same replacement piece?

  5. the touch on my s6 edge works sometimes and sometimes it doesnt. Its
    like the phone is fully functional everything else works except the
    touch. and when the touch stops working the brightness goes dim. so
    basically its a combined problem of low brightness and screen not
    responding. my phone is out of warranty and i dont understand what to
    do. please could u tell me what could it be? subscribed to your channel

  7. Water damage is what got mine. For awhile it did not work. Then it started to work but it took 10+ hours to fully charge. After a few months of that, it's charging like normal again except no fast charging (2 hours for a full charge from 0%) however it still doesn't work with the gear VR after that 2 second dunk in a bucket of dirty bleach water. ;__; Since how the Gear VR connects to the phone will I need to replace my charge port or could it be something else?


  9. succesfully installed a new homebutton thanks to you! otherwose it would've costed me much more money to let it done

  10. Thank you for posting this. I used it to try to repair my phone but it turns out that there is an internal issue i can't cheaply repair. I enjoyed replacing the lcd and charger port. The only negative of this repairing this phone is the cost for each components. I think samsung needs to find a slightly less expensive lcd.

  11. The screens are expensive as fuck wtf!! It's 2017 not 2015 anymore so they need to drop the price seriously

  12. probably off topic but my Samsung 6 was thrown to the ground so it's slightly bent on the top now is that fixable ?

  13. So a while back my S6 stopped working but not in the usual screen broke or battery died kind of way. It stopped reading my Sim card and ive gotten multiple new Sim cards to see if it was an issue with the card itself and it isnt. Is there any way for me to replace the sim card reader in the phone?

  14. F u Mr. Rig Everything. I just tried this on my S6 and I cracked the Back panel twice. I can't explain why, is it because of the 5 shots of rum or because of its half past 1 in Germany right now.
    Good thing is that I had removed my brushed titanium DBrand skin right before and was able to reapply that thing after me failing. DBrand saved my butt Ii guess and no clear back galaxy s6 for me. Love your videos. Sincerely Helge PS. I'm a poor student, but I seem to know how to repair every phone thanks to you (but not in drunk mode).

  15. This is a very handy video every helpful!!

    I have a small question .

    Where about it's located the Bluetooth and wireless antenna?

  16. my phone fell on the ground nothing broke on the outsde but the screen is black and haas blue blimking bars and a steady blue light

  17. Great video, do you trust the battery provider? ( repairs universe)?? i think i may need a new battery?? phone turns on but is not charging.. i get the icon that shows up when you plug in the phone( charging icon) but the green "fill indicator" is not showing any power going into the phone

  18. why can't women fix phones, why is it always men, why do you need to grab your sisters hair dryer? what if you are..ya kno the sister

  19. Did you ever take apart that vibe motor? They're always magnetic so I assume it's just a current which intermittently activates the magnets inside it to make a vibrating sensation. Definitely interesting! I'd love to know what makes the Taptic engine so great, too! (that thing's huge)

  20. Does somebody know what's the diffrence between batteries EB-BG920ABE and EB-BG920ABA, will the EB-BG920ABE fit to the g920f international version of S6?

  21. Thus is exactly what my phone needs the battery fully charged on standby or idle mode lasts about 19 hours the back is falling out and the screen has a few cravks

  22. I have kind of a noobie question on this screen repair…
    The phone in question started rapidly blinking white over the bottom half of the screen. I went into safe mode to make sure this wasn't being caused by any 3rd party apps, as my son-in-law does not remember dropping it. It still occured. I am thinking either a cable is loose or he damaged the digitizer as the actual glass shows no damage. Is this going to need lcd and glass replacement or ? One is relatively cheap the other a little more expensive.

  23. So, my battery was punctured on my phone, so it didn't work. I recently watched this video, replaced the battery with a new one, and still nothing works. No charger indicator when plugged in, no screen or indicator activity at all… Could the original puncture have fried the system? Could I have done something wrong? plz halp.

  24. one nice FUCKING friday i decided to put my s6 into a otterbox symmetry case and it fucked up the oled panel and the repair costs 200€

  25. Anyone know what the yellow stickers are when he took off the back panel? Please respond I ripped those off on accident, are there any features I cant use anymore?

  26. Hello, on my phone, the black shield that lays over LCD came off with the glass of the phone. Is it possible to buy the black screen?

  27. My gs6 isn't turning on now , when I try to charge it , the upper left corner heats up and nothing happens

  28. Hello Jerry!
    Can you tell me where I get the cables that go from charging port to the mother board I threw away old charging port and those were in it like in your video..I thought it will come with new charging port but they don't… I need you help

  29. Hi man, just broke my glass on my s6 and I'm trying to find if it's possible to replace only the glass, the screen and digitizer still work just fine but the glass is cracked and I was planning to give it as a gift to my dad, do you know if it's possible to buy just the glass on the s6 flat?

  30. Working on a Galaxy S6 digitizer replacement right now while using your video for guidance.

    Thanks for making these videos! I've been watching since you did the iPhone 4 teardown, or sometime around then ✊

  31. ANYONE HVE ADBICE MY CHARGING PORT WAS is inside sideways n wont charged anyone send me advice how to fix it would a bluetooth charger work?

  32. 'And here's the LCD ribbon' don't worry, I don't blame you, it's okay to make little mistakes, luckily we all know you're talking about the screen ribbon 😉

  33. Is it really that hard to replace charging port and 3.5 jack on standard s6? I watched video how to do it on s6 edge, and it looked so much easier, just peel of back plate and you can change all charging port and 3.5jack plate straight away, without removing front display.

  34. this video was so helpful thank you so much i needed to remove the recent apps button and what had to pay 60 dollars to get it fixed if it werent for this video. i love your channel and am subscribed thank you so much

  35. I totally destroyed my S6 like an idiot because I had no clue that this video even existed. I didn't click on this one but instead clicked on the other ones which were not as in depth and my display cracked and turned completely black.

  36. can i replace charging dock port assemply sm-g920p with my original sm-g920i…? and can i replace battery with higher capacity..?

  37. I need to replace the battery for the phone. I took the back glass off and can see the battery. Do I need to take the front glass off to properly replace the battery?

  38. If you're trying to replace the charging port don't do it. I just tried and I broke the OLED screen. Not worth the risk.
    He makes it look so easy to remove the screen but trust me it's not.

  39. Hey Jerry I have an interesting question. I swear I'm the only person this happened to because I can't find anything online about it. For my old Galaxy S6 the rear camera leaked some weird gray fluid around some of the camera lense edges. I wasn't able to take pictures anymore since they were super blurry. When it first happened I had to keep focusing the camera for a couple of mintues until it maybe worked. That stop working so I had the shake the phone for a couple of mintues which worked better, but the fluid was still spreading and that stopped working. Zooming in and out does nothing and the camera lense is not cracked, scratched, nor dirty in the slightest. I had to start taking pictures and videos on the front camera like some weirdo but I got pretty good at taking those low quality shots.
    So my question is what is that weird gray liquid and where did it come from? I did drop it many times (no cracks at all) and the phone glitches out a lot.
    I recently just found out that the camera is clear when it's super close to something, no more than 5-8inches, but that's really useless for me.
