Urgent replacement of the display for the iPhone 7 Plus: how to solve the problem correctly and not spoil an expensive device?
iPhone 7 Plus is not just a device from the world's most famous brand, but a guarantee of impeccable quality. Users admire their functionality and high reliability, but at the same time, Apple gadgets remain susceptible to mechanical damage and other influences. As a result, even having at his disposal a unique technique without exaggeration, the owner may be faced with the need to repair it. One of the most common problems that iPhone 7 Plus repair services are faced with is damage to the display.
The most common iPhone 7 Plus display breakdowns: causes and manifestations of problems
The display module is a vulnerability in iPhone 7 Plus models, and the most common reason for asking for a repair and replacement is a banal fall. No one is safe from accidental damage to the phone, which we take out in a hurry, and hitting the asphalt, after which the screen will at least ruin an ugly crack.
The following "symptoms" indicate the need to replace this component of the model:
cracks (large or small mesh) on the glass;
unaesthetic scratches, abrasions, chips;
the appearance of artifacts on the screen, streaks;
the occurrence of problems in the operation of the sensor (touchscreen).
The screen crashed - what to do, can you replace it yourself, and what difficulties you should be aware of?
We'll warn you right away that the process of replacing the screen in any iPhone is a complex of very precise, accurate, strictly sequential actions that require certain skills and knowledge. In addition, each generation of unique devices has its own characteristics. Only specialists know about a number of subtleties. The slightest inaccuracy in the actions - and you will at least spend money on more expensive repairs, as a maximum - on a new smartphone.
Also, keep in mind that for repairs you will need special equipment and tools because you cannot unscrew the screws with a regular screwdriver to disassemble the case. Only for this action, you need a special "pentahedral", and to remove the glass - a suction cup and a thin plastic spatula. All internal screws have a clever triangular slot (this is how the manufacturer strives to exclude unprofessional intervention and independent attempts to perform repairs). And these are not all the nuances.
The next thing to worry about is the presence of a new original component. Think, does one of the owners of the device buy spare parts in advance "just in case", and is waiting for the problem to happen? - No! This means that you will need to order, wait for delivery, and at the same time make sure that the seller is reliable and supplies original components with a guarantee.
Hence the conclusion: the easiest and most reliable way is to contact a service center that specializes in repairing Apple products and iPhone 7 Plus in particular. Only those who are absolutely confident in their knowledge and skills in repairing such equipment can decide to independently repair a gadget.
How does the screen replacement process work on iPhone 7 Plus?
In order to replace the display module in the iPhone 7 Plus model, you need to start by disassembling the smartphone. To do this, unscrew the two screws that provide the bottom fastening. This version is produced by the manufacturer with a water-repellent protective tape glued to the end part, which must be removed for disassembly.
The next step is to remove the display. If the screen is badly damaged when dropped and is covered with a mesh of cracks, then it is better to stick adhesive tape on it in order to remove the glass carefully, without letting it crumble. Specialists remove the screen with a suction cup, pulling it up, and having received a gap, they insert a special thin plastic spatula into it. Then, very carefully, moving along the perimeter to the latches on top, they lift the display module assembly with the frame. Then they slowly pull it off and open the device like a book.
At the next stage, they begin to disconnect the loops. To do this, remove the protective strip that hides the battery and display connectors. It is held in place by four screws. After removing the plate, the thin sections differ, and here it is important to follow the established sequence so as not to short-circuit the board. They start with the one that comes from the battery.
Detaching loops is a task that requires increased accuracy and care, but it is not the most difficult and subtle yet. Next, you have to transfer especially important components from the damaged old display module:
spoken speaker with a fixing pad;
loops (front camera, proximity sensor, HOME buttons with Touch ID);
screen retaining plates.
In addition to transferring components when connecting a new display module, it must certainly be tested (you need to check the brightness, color saturation, uniformity of illumination, make sure that there are no graphic distortions, etc.).
After making sure everything is in order, you can start assembling it. Do this in the reverse order of disassembly. This is no less difficult and responsible stage than all those described above, which will not forgive you even the slightest inaccuracy. It is important to observe the order and correctness of actions, for example, in no case should the correct use and the order of the screws be disrupted because accidental use of the wrong thing can cause serious damage to the motherboard. It is fundamentally important to accurately and perfectly evenly fit all the parts, not allowing them to skew (which, by the way, cannot always be noticed with the naked eye).
Also, after the repair, the tightness should be restored, which is not so easy to do in this device. Ideally, a special seal can be used. This is a necessary action, this will eliminate the formation of backlash and any gaps, and also protect the device from moisture and dirt penetration inside.
After the complete collection, a final check of the smartphone is carried out If everything is done correctly, there will be no problems, and the multifunctional, high-quality, reliable iPhone 7 Plus will delight its owner for a long time to come. But, as can be seen from the above, what seems simple (in particular, replacing a broken screen) is actually much more difficult. Any, even the slightest malfunction in devices from the Apple brand should be eliminated only by specialists because many actions are practical "jewelry" work.
What is the cost of replacing the iPhone 7+ display?
Display replacement is one of the common services provided by service centers in Ukraine, and in each city, all companies set their own prices. They include:
diagnostics and assessment of the scope of work, possibly parallel actions are required;
the cost of a new display module (moreover, some companies use exclusively original new spare parts, others use copies, which significantly affects the final price);
payment for the services of the master (depends directly on the pricing policy of the selected service company or the prices of the private master, which is not a good idea due to the absence of 100% guarantees and the meaninglessness of claims after).
To repair the iPhone 7 Plus, involve only professionals! The tariff for a specific service can always be viewed on the website of the service center, and the exact figure, if you suddenly need the provision of additional services, will be announced by the company's manager so that you can make a final decision.
