We Specialise in Micro Soldering

Located inside the device housing, the logic board is the epicentre of all the functions of the device from simple phone calls to the intricacy of running various apps.

In the occurrence of malfunctioning or a faulty motherboard we have the option to repair it, however as every motherboard is specific to your device model they are not interchangeable. We specialise in micro soldering so can tackle board repairs beyond many repair companies capabilities.

Board-Level Repairs (Micro Soldering)

We operate a NO FIX, NO FEE policy so if we can’t fix the device or it is deemed beyond economical repair your only cost is postage (excludes water damage repair).

Types of Work Carried Out

Examples: digitizer, LCD, battery, camera, dock connector etc.
These are the FPC connectors that are soldered to the board. They can quite often become damaged during repairs and can leave your device in a worse non-working condition.

Charging Port/Dock Connectors:
Soldered USB, Micro USB connector replacement
iPhone iPad Charging Ports

Pry Damage, Knocked Off/Missing Components:
Damage caused by DIY repairs, tools and technicians. Cost varies depending on the extent of damage and components that may need replacing. Damaged solder pads and need for jumpers also effects price.

No Backlight/No image Repairs:

Sim Card Reader Replacement:

Other Chips:
Replacement of other IC chips such as Touch IC, Audio IC, etc

No Power:
If the basic things like new battery have been tried and the phone still isn’t turning on. Involves in-depth troubleshooting under a microscope: Clearing up any corrosion, re-flowing bad looking solder and replacing damaged/faulty components and chips.

Water Damage Data Recovery:
If there is too much damage to get the phone fully working and it becomes not economical to repair there is the option of just recovering the data. This involves getting the device to a point where it at least turns on and certain functions working so that then settings and data can be removed (ie irreplaceable photos). They will then be transferred to a USB Stick and returned to you along with the phone.
