Unique Repair Service Takes Hundreds off of Electronic Repair Costs

iPhone 4,iPhone 4S,iPhone 5,Repair Tools | Friday September 19 2014 8:19 am | Comments Off on Unique Repair Service Takes Hundreds off of Electronic Repair Costs Tags: , ,

If you’ve ever broken your iPhone, Android device, or iPad you know how expensive it is to repair. A lot of times warranties and insurance plans that come with these devices only cover certain incidents or only last for a short period of time. That makes a broken device a major hassle and a serious expense. Nobody wants to pay the Apple Store or his or her local cell phone store to repair their device after it’s been cracked or smashed. Of course, how many of us will opt to go without a phone in lieu of paying high repair costs? I’d bet that it’s not many of us. Most of the time, if we have the funds available (and sometimes even when we really don’t) we’ll shell out the money to have our device repaired, despite the high costs.

What if there was an alternative; a less expensive route that would still end with your device being fixed? There’s always the option of going to a privately owned repair shop, most cities have at least a few of them. These repair shops are usually less expensive, but in some cases you run the risk of low quality parts or inexperienced techs. And, of course, you always run the risk of taking it to a place that simply doesn’t produce good results. Mostly, the problem with this option is that you can’t be sure how everything will turn out. In addition to the unknown factor, many of these places still charge pretty heft amounts to repair a device.

This Smart and Affordable Alternative

It might seem like there’s really no other options; either you spend the immense amount of money having the device repaired where you purchased it or you take the risk of having it repaired at a privately owned shop. What if you were able to fix your phone, tablet, or iPod yourself? All you’d have to do is purchase the parts and fix it on your own. You wouldn’t have to worry about the ridiculous amount of money you’d have to shell out at a certified store, or about the risk associated with a privately owned one. Believe it or not, there actually is a way you can repair your broken device yourself.

A company called Direct Fix is revolutionizing the way we handle our damaged devices. They offer a wide variety of replacement parts for iPhones, iPads, Android phones, iPods, and various tablets. I know what you’re thinking now, though: What about the tools you’d need to make a repair like that, and how will I know what to do? Obviously, not all of us have pre-cursory knowledge of the inner-workings of a mobile phone or tablet. Direct Fix has a simple solution. Along with the various replacement parts offered in their online store, they also offer tool kits and repair instructions.

So, next time your device breaks, all you have to do is go to www.directfix.com and find the replacement part you’re looking for, the tool kit that goes with your device, and the repair instructions you’ll need to complete the repairs. The website is easy to navigate with convenient drop-down menus that feature lists of devices, replacement parts, tool kits, and repair instructions. Just click on what you’re looking for and you’ll be taken to the correct page.

How Much Money will this Save?

This, of course, is the big question. I did some research to see just how much using Direct Fix would save you, and what I found was pretty amazing. Say you have an Apple iPhone 5, you drop it, and now the screen is shattered. If you were to take it to an Apple store, here’s what it would cost:

  • If you already spent the $100 on Apple Care the repair would cost you an additional $79. Total: $179 On top of that outrageous price, Apple Care is only good for two incidents. That means if you’re somewhat accident-prone and your phone happens to end up needing a third repair, you go on to our next option.
  • If you don’t have Apple Care the cost of the repair would be $269. Total: $269
  • The price goes down a small amount for older devices, but the lowest price you’d pay is $149, and that’s if you still have the original iPhone.

    What About Apple’s Warranty?

    Apple devices are covered for one year after purchase under the Apple Warranty. However, this warranty does not cover accidental damages, only malfunction in software. So, basically, the only thing this warranty can really help you with is a defective phone, and that’s only during the first year.

    How do Apple’s Prices Compare to Direct Fix?

    Using the same hypothetical situation as before, here’s what you’d pay ordering parts and tools from Direct Fix in order to fix your iPhone 5 screen yourself.

  • Replacement Screen: $79.99
  • Tool kit: $9.99
  • USA Shipping: Free
  • Instructions: Free
  • Total Cost: $89.98

    Since Direct Fix actually offers their repair instructions for free in the form of a step-by-step high-def video, all you’d have to purchase would be the replacement screen and tool kit. This is significantly cheaper than any of the options Apple offers for screen replacement or repair. I even looked up repair prices for other devices like Android phones or an iPad; I found that the price was around the same or higher than the repair costs for the replacement iPhone 5 screen.

    Direct Fix has set up a pretty unique and amazingly affordable service. Fixing your own device will not only save you money, but will also teach you the basics of electronic device repairs. I don’t know about you, but I can’t see a downside to that. In the event that you just aren’t comfortable trying to repair your phone or tablet on your own, Direct Fix does have certified technicians available to repair your device for you. Amazingly, the price of a professional repair job from Direct Fix is nearly the same price you’d pay if you decided to buy the parts from them to do the repair yourself.

    Direct Fix is an online store that’s revolutionizing electronic device repairs. If you have a device that needs repairs, or would just like to learn more about Direct Fix and the service they offer, click here. We live in a world where technology surrounds us; we use it for fun, work, and so much more. But, technology is no good to us if we can’t keep it running after something happens to it. Direct Fix can help us care for our technology while, at the same time, helping us to keep money in our pockets.

    Apple “Screws” Broken iPhone 4 Repairs or Not?

    iPhone 4 Screw Compare

    iPhone 4 Pentalobe Screw Compare

    If you want to fix your broken iPhone 4 or change the broken back on it you will need a new tool in order to open the iPhone 4 up. Apple has recently decided to replace the #00 phillips screws on the bottom of the iPhone 4 with some new ones called “Pentalobe” screws. They are a rounded 5 point center of the screw and very tiny which means they will be easy to strip. DirectFix.com has on order some tools that will allow you to open the new screws up but because of the delicate nature of the screw we highly recommend that when you do remove them you replace them with the good old stand by phillips #00 screws like the original iPhone 4 came with. We have included some photo’s showing the difference of the Older iPhone 4 with the phillips screws and the newer one which we just purchased 1 week ago that has the Pentalobe screws. All the Part Numbers and Parts are available below. Feel free to click on the part or part number for more information on the parts/tools.

    Apple Stores Will Replace Broken iPhone Displays

    You may have seen some information about Apple offering to replace your iPhone screen if you take it to an Apple store and have a “Genius” do it for you. Lets go over some of the details of this and why this is not the best option. First off is the cost to do this which does not include your time or the mileage to get to an Apple store. This repair will run you $199 for the 3G or 3GS even if just the Touch Panel is broken. The Apple “Genius” will take it in the back room and pull the old screen out probably with a case opener (XX1521) tool or suction cup (XX2373) and put a new screen in it for you. This is a 10 minute do it your self repair that will run you $199 from Apple. At DirectFix we carry the same screens, tools and free online videos you need to do this yourself. You do not need to be a “Genius” to do this just watch our free videos below. The 3G complete screen we carry (IP-2164) is only $99 and the 3GS complete screen we carry is only $149. That will save you $50 to $100 from what the Apple store will charge you. Now I am no “Genius” but I can also do some basic math and I do not know many people that make $199 for 10 Minutes of work. Also if you have a Jailbroke iPhone Apple will not fix it for you no matter what. So your choice is to spend $199 at the Apple Store for 10 Minutes of work or save the money and order the part from DirectFix.com and do it yourself.

    Another note if you are a little more technical and have more time on your hands there are even cheaper solutions. If you only broken the Touch Panel on the 3G or 3GS this part can be replaced by its self. There are some additional tools and and adhesive kit needed but the Touch Panel only runs $30 for the 3G and $40 for the 3GS (IP-2320). That would then save you $160 to $170 from the price that the Apple store charges. As you can see there are ways to save money and doing a little research can go a long way.

    iPhone 3G Complete Screen Replacement (LCD & Touch Panel) Directions



    iPhone 3GS Complete Screen Removal & Reassembly Directions IP-2322



    Not All iPhone Repair Directions Are Created Equal

    “Taking a metal spudger to a phone and ripping it apart is not the same as instructing someone how to properly fix a phone”

    Morgan Hill, Calif. – May 6, 2010DirectFix.com, the leader in “You Fix It” replacement parts, accessories and videos for iPhones, Blackberrys, iPods, PDAs and handheld games, today announced an article on educating people on the difference between ripping an iPhone or other electronic gadget apart with a metal spudger and teaching someone how to properly take apart / repair an item.

    In the race to be first in the world of electronic disassembly, especially when a new electronic gadget gets released, people sometime take short cuts. Some websites and companies will travel the earth in order to get their hands on devices first so they can rip them apart and post on the web what the inside of a gadget looks like in the hope that the media or major networks will pick up on the story. In their haste to be first the result is that readers will suffer terrible losses by following these directions that are posted so quickly. When someone actually tries to follow these convoluted directions, which most of the time are missing many keys steps, they end of damaging their own gadget beyond repair with no help from the company or person that posted them.

    Things to watch out for when viewing the latest gadget take apart; first, if they are using low quality “still” photos then you might want to look elsewhere. Second, if they ever tell you to use a metal object like a “Metal Spudger” on your nice shinny gadget you may want to find another set of directions. Third, if they do have pictures, then look at them close to see if any of the parts look bent, scratched or damaged from someone ripping it apart instead of taking it apart properly. And finally, if they include written directions, then are they more interested in telling you what is inside the gadget or how to properly fix it?

    DirectFix.com has taken the approach of using High-Definition Videos to instruct people on how to properly take apart their gadgets. “Back in 1998 when we did do our directions with pictures it was the only media available to us says Robert Stanley, founder of DirectFix.com. “It is now 2010 and High-Definition video directions are the only way to show someone how to fix their electronic device.” Robert goes on to explain how the use of pictures leaves out so many steps and creates questions in the customer’s mind. “There are no questions when it comes to a free high-definition video as people can watch it as many times as they like”, explains Mr. Stanley.

    Mr. Stanley’s company DirectFix.com has over 100 different Video directions and they are adding more weekly. With over 6 million views on his YouTube repair direction videos you might want to consider taking a look the next time you break your gadget and want to fix it yourself.

    With millions of gadgets and iPhones sold yearly; users are breaking them on a regular basis. Many electronic devices like the iPhone have quickly become an indispensable, vital personal and business tool, which means breaking one, can be inconvenient and expensive in terms of downtime. With the parts that DirectFix.com sells and their free video directions there is no reason that you could not fix it yourself and save money.

    About DirectFix

    Metal Spudger vs Plastic Case Opener Tool

      So you broke your iPhone or iPod and you want to open it up and take a look inside or maybe even repair it. You find the parts you need but notice that there are some special tools like a plastic case opener tool part number XX1521 shown in the directional videos you watched. Then you look around the Internet and see that some web sites are recommending a Metal Spudger. You wonder which tool is the best one for the job.

      Lets go over each tool and then you can decide:

      Case Opener Tool (Part Number XX1521):
      First we have to say that there are different types of plastic case opener tools and they vary in quality, plastic type and build. There are some that are very flimsy and the tip on them is very thin which make them useless or only good for one use. The ones we carry at pdaparts.com are high quality and durable plastic. We use these tools daily in repairs and only sell quality tools. You might also notice that the tool we sell is 2 sided, so it is like getting 2 tools in one. Just like all plastic they will wear down and this is another reason we sell the double-sided tool which gives you twice the life span.

      The Metal Spudger:
      The metal spudger tool looks like something that would be used in a dental office. It looks like some one took and existing tool and adapted it to use for opening iphone and ipod units. We have tried this tool on some of the test units we have and lets just say it is metal scratching metal. It damaged the case on both the iPhone and iPod we have. The other companies that sell these even say the following and I quote “can easily scratch your iPod or iPhone.” So why would you want to use this on your shiny new or almost new iPhone or iPod? The iPhone and iPod get enough scratches just from normal wear no need to add more.
