If your walk-in customers are asking about salvaging their LCD to repair only the glass, they’re not the only ones curious about this popular repair. Glass-Only repairs of Samsung devices and iPhone 5 screens are becoming more common as the prices of full assemblies for new devices are initially priced very high. With a little practice and patience, repair technicians can increase their profits by offering glass-only repairs for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy series. Removing the broken glass from a device with a functioning LCD can save up to $100 on parts cost, but it can be a time-consuming repair for those learning the repair.
During the past few months we’ve been researching glass-only repairs and speaking with members of our Repair Community to learn more about this emerging repair. Equipment we’ve purchased such as glass separating machines and autoclaves aren’t exactly streamlined for small businesses or mobile technicians, and require additional modifications prior to use in the US, but eTech Parts is committed to finding more economical options to help our customers complete glass-only repairs. We are searching every day for the best options for glass-only repairs, so stay tuned!
