Cell phones seem to discover new ways to break all the time, and the displays are the most vulnerable to physical harm. Whether the phone was dropped, walked on, or just ceased operating, the cracked or faulty screen may be replaced with a new one. Because of the size of the parts, replacing the Oled screen on a cell phone is a complex procedure, but it can be done at home if you have the appropriate equipment.

Step 1:

To turn off your phone, press and hold the power button for three to five seconds. In your hand, place the phone face down. Press down on the rear cover of the phone. To disconnect the cover from the phone, slide it lower. Remove the phone’s battery that has been exposed.

Step 2:

Remove all screws from the phone’s back case with the proper tool. Mobile phones typically use Torx screws, but you may need to use a precise Phillips-head screwdriver in some situations.

Step 3:

In the gap along the outside edge of the phone’s case, insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver or guitar pick. Pull the rear shell of the phone away from the rest of the phone. This should show the main circuit board of your phone.

Step 4:

Remove any remaining screws from the circuit board of the phone. Carefully lift the circuit board out of the phone’s case and disconnect all ribbon wires from the circuit board. Take the phone’s circuit board out. This will show the keypad’s backside as well as the OLED screen.

Step 5:

Replace the phone’s plastic cover and then flip it back over. Replace the screws and reattach the wires to the circuit board. Place the SIM card and batteries back in the phone after reinstalling the OLED screen. Remove the plastic cover off the back of the phone and turn it on to make sure the screen is operating properly.
