  3. I know it doesn't WORk because I unscrewed 3 and the rest won't get out and its good because it unscrewed a few

  4. Hello
    I've got some similar problem. I've dropped my Samsung Galaxy S4 and the right corner of the screen broke so I bought a replacement screen. It is like brand new now but I have a problem with the brightness. It's really dark even if it's set on maximum. Could you help me with some advise please? Thank you!

  5. I dropped my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) about 6 feet. I tried to open it but it's all covered black and some crack glass. But when I use finger print it's absolutely working. I still can hear some sound and vibration. Any advice pls?

  6. Harjinder Sidhu – I am so thrilled that I found your video, this one. Earlier yesterday, I dropped my Samsung Galaxy S4 Active from the height of about 3 foot, it has a case on it that is padded. A few minutes later when I went to use the phone, I noticed my screen was black and no matter what I did, I couldn't get any response from the phone. I thought for sure I was going to have to replace the LCD screen and digitizer, which I had to do when I first bought the phone, it was used and had a cracked screen. AnI money is tight for me right now. I saw your video, after trying suggestions from some others, and I decided to try your advice. As soon as I got the screws out and lifted that plate, I knew I had the same problem as you showed in the video. Anyway, I am very grateful to you and this video. This would have cost me a minimum of $60 to repair. Thank you very much.

  7. Dropped an samsung galaxy s4 mini, small cracks not palpable on the right upper corner, was on mute, opens fine, buttons work and light, but screen black non responsive: did the trick by removing battery and pressing button for 2 minutes, didn't work; took out the screws , checked the connections, intact, opened them to look underneath , the only thing I saw irregular (no experience so I don't know for sure) was the yellow band connecting the 2 pieces had traces of being forcefully bent. Put it all back together but screen still black! I didn't see any damage done by me cracking open the phone. Any suggestions besides paying a professional?

  8. Why should I fix the samsung brand negligence. They sell us the stuff but I had four products that went bad. This is the only company I have ever bought from that everything breaks down. They have no garantees and they destroy your tabs and phones with theur updates. Why should I pay to have fixed what they mess up. I cannot sue them… they are too big, So I tell the truth everyday and spread the word.

  9. Omg thank you so much. I was just about to get a new screen for my note 3. Wow you save me and now I'm about to get a phone case.

  10. thank you for your video very informative….does this method work on samsung j5? i dropped mine and the screen went black but i could hear notifications coming through

  11. I have a Galaxy S4, when i opened it the cable was loose but even when i tighten it, it won't turn back on!!! what else could it be?

  12. my phone is Samsung Galaxy S4 mini it was Charged at 3& all the night because i didn't found the charger so i let it on the table the next day i found the charger and i plugged the phone in it then i waited a bit…..

  13. Omg I snapped the display plug in on the mainboard and it clicked and my phone came on after 3 years 😆 thank you!!! My Samsung S3 had the same symptoms as your phone there but it’s fixed now thanks (after I changed the mainboard from another broken Samsung S3 and used your tutorial for the connection)

  14. This did not work for me I opened it up like you did in the video and that orange thing was all the way down but on the opposite side where the volume button is that thing was detached I put it make to place and I holds the power button still not working. Please help me I love my broken phone so much I've got so much stuff on my phone and I really want to keep it.

  15. So took it apart and found that same ribbon hanging like yours was pictures and I lined it up and pushed it in and the phone. Still has no backlight but is completely functional. Next step ?

  16. Fuk my s4 active works but no backlight.. when I put my flashlight on I see the display. Thats why I get the black screen

  17. Have you had any experience with an S4 active not charging and not turning on? Tried different cables and different batteries. Still wouldn't come on with a new battery. Computer wouldn't recognize the phone either. The blue light was blinking yesterday but was unresponsive to buttons, except when powered off. Then it wouldn't power back on. Thanks!

  18. the hard part is finding a screw driver that's small enough for the screws I happen to be a mechanic and out of my $7000 worth of tools I couldn't find one that would fit the screws

  19. When I turn the phone my phone vibarate and show a green shadow but it never opens.When I went mobile mechanic he said that my display has gone.What can I do?Please upload a vedio about this problem.
